Myrrh is a natural resin extracted from the Commiphora tree. It has been used throughout history as a perfume, incense and medicine. It is also mentioned in many ancient texts, including the Bible and the Torah, for its ability to connect to the divine.
Myrrh is traditionally used in prayer and as an offering in protection rituals. It is also well know for its purifying properties, for cleansing the soul and clearing the mind. Myrrh resin has a warm, spicy, balsamic scent which favors meditation and spiritual uplifting
Copal originates from the Aztec Nahuatil word 'Copalli' and refers to the variety of resins extracted from the trees of the "bursera" family. Thousands of years ago, Copal was considered as a sacred resin by Mayans and Aztecs in Mexico and Central America.
The Mayans used to offer Copal to the gods as one of the most valuable things, along with tobacco and cocoa. Copal is still used today in shamanic ceremonies for energetic protection, offering, cleansing and purification. It is an excellent incense to make positive changes. Copal has a rich sweet, Piney smell that brings peace and harmony.
