Bursera bipinnata | Mexican Copal | 100% natural

This Mexican Copal is something special. It is very fragrant and  a powerful tool in ceremonies.

It is burnt on a charcoal in contrary to the incense which from India which is rolled on sticks. In this way you will only burn the Copal and no glue and wood.

Our supplier buys this at the indian comunities who have plantations in the south of Mexico. A cut is made in the bark of the tree and the resin flows in leafs and then it is just dried. For this resin only old trees are used.

The Mexican copal resin comes from the tree of the genus Bursera bipinnata, in the Nahuatl language it is called copalquahuitl and the resin is that of copalli.

Ceremonial use

Mexican Copal is a very important material in ritual uses, the smoke that rises while the fire transforms the essence of things, represents a bond of union, of communication between heaven and earth. It has been compared to copal smoke and its perfume, to the same soul that rises to the divine plane.

When white smoke was burned it was associated with rains, so it was also thought that in this way Tlaloc was honored and used to request rain.

Mediator between heaven and earth

Mexican Copal is seen as Mediator between heaven and earth, between matter and spirit, between living and dead, human bond with the Father Mother Creator, element that transports the prayers to the realm of the Divine, that is the function of the copal, through the smoke.

Copal is much appreciated from the mystical and ritualistic point of view, and even medicinal. Since pre-Hispanic times, copal used to be included as one of the taxes that should be given to the Mexican people and was highly valued.

Divine offering

The aromatic essence of Mexican Copal, the pleasant smell that emerges from this resin, has been associated with the Divine Offering, with the great ceremonies. The clear search for connection of the human being with the Creator Principle, Giver of Life, was thought to be propitiated by the white smoke of the copal.

For shipping to all countries except the USA, we offer two types of shipping:
    • Registered shipping: This comes with tracking and is faster than our free shipping.

For shipping to Canada we also offer DHL Express on certain orders  
For shipping to the USA, we offer four types of shipping: Registered PostNL: This option ships using PostNL, the national postal service of The Netherlands. Once the package arrives in the US, the USPS take over the shipping. Orders can be tracked with the tracking tool found at www.usps.com. Free shipping: There is no tracking available for this reliable, but slower shipping method. Packages ship with PostNL and then are handed over to the USPS and deliveries may take up to 30 days. This option is not always available, depending on what you are ordering and where you are shipping to. Registered via NY: Depending on which state you are shipping to, this option will be available in order to try and ensure that there are no delays to your package as it enters the US. Packages are shipped first of all with PostNL to a NY forwarding address and then, from there, shipped on to you. We will update you on the tracking once your order is shipped from the Netherlands and then again once it is forwarded from NY.  Updates can take up to 24 hours because we work in different time zones around the world.
When you place an order in our web shop, you will automatically see the shipping options that are available, depending on your cart contents and the US state you are shipping to. For different states we use different methods.
Free Shipping from USA: For customers ordering only our Mimosa hostilis Hidden Valley and/or Mexican MHRBs, we have also established a warehouse that will exclusively ship to our customers from within the US.  This has the advantage of offering tracked shipping without having to pass through customs and a delivery time of only 3-4 working days. Orders will be shipped with USPS Priority mail.  This service is available for Mimosa only orders.  Any other products will need to ordered separately and will be shipped from the Netherlands.   Good to know: All of our orders are packed and shipped discreetly with only the obligatory information such as shipping and return address on the outside. Registered orders outside of Europe are sent with PostNL who hand your order over to the national postal service of your country. For instance in the US, packages are handed over to the USPS. Registered orders within Europe are sent with DPD. Fast and trackable at all times. Our Free shipping option is slow(er) but very reliable too.

For valuable orders we would advise choosing the Registered option.
