Aztec copal


Kraft pot


In Central America, Copal resin has been extracted from the Bursera family of trees since the ancient era of the Aztec and Mayan people. This precious material, like its distant cousin incense, was collected in a maguey cactus leaf widely used during religious ceremonies, and even during their famous human sacrifices. Its unforgettable zesty, woody and amber fragrance recalls a unique historical heritage. Our responsible sourcing activity in Mexico enables us to offer the finest quality white Penca Copal resin.
