Description

Also known as the "elephant tree," is the source of Copal Oro Gold Pieces. Although these are available from most businesses that offer herbs and spices in bulk, organic Copal Oro Gold Pieces are not an herb, but rather a type of resin derived from the sap of this tree, which is native to the desert regions Northern Mexico and the Southwestern U.S.

In the language of the Nahuatl Indians, the word kopali means "incense." Copal Oro Gold Pieces were indeed used in the religious rites of Mexico's indigenous peoples, including the Mayans, the Mexica, the Aztecs and more. Shamans burned dried Copal Oro Gold Pieces just as if they were dried herbs, and then inhaled the smoke in order to commune with their gods.

When burned outdoors, whole Copal Oro Gold Pieces give off a resinous smell that is pleasant to humans, but not to insect pests. Sliced Copal Oro Gold pieces can be melted down and used as a non-toxic adhesive for broken pottery as well.

Warning: For external use only.
