Copal is an aromatic resin derived from the sap of trees from the Torchwood family and has a long history of use especially in Mexico (the word 'copal' derives from the Náhuatl term 'copalli') where it was highly valued and believed to be a healing aid as well as helping the mind communicate with the Great Mystery or Gods and Goddesses.
