Copal Incense is a completely natural incense with a clean, light, woody scent. It brings positive and loving energy that fills your home or work space with peaceful & harmonious energies.


Copal incense is a wonderful energy tool to use during your meditations. It is linked with the crown chakra, deepening your awareness and encouraging pure thoughts during meditation. Copal is also believed to help strengthen the auric body, removing energy blockages. It is particularly useful in times of stress or even for alleviating feelings of depression, because it helps you to shift your mindset.

Cleansing and Activating:

Our all natural incense is fantastic to use for jewellery and crystal cleansing and activation.

Using Copal incense sticks is very simple. Below are some rituals to try:

To cleanse your healing crystal jewellery, hold the piece and allow it to fully submerge in the smoke. You may notice the jewellery moving in a circle or back and forth. Keep it in the smoke until all movement stops.

If you’re using copal incense for cleaning crystals, hold the crystal in the smoke for a few seconds, rotating it so the smoke bathes all sides of the crystal.

To cleanse a space, allow the copal incense to fill the room. If you have a feather fan, encourage the smoke to rise into the corners of the room.

Tip: Light your Copal incense stick and set it in rice or sand in a bowl, cup or candle votive.

Use Copal as an Offering:

The burning of copal is believed to call upon the God Tlaloc and the goddess Chalchiuhtlicue.  Both of these dieties were associated with fertility and creation. You can light copal incense as an offering to these deities, if you feel connected to their energy.

Lighting the incense in their honor will invite their energy and guidance into your space and allow you to tap into the power of creation.
