Copal resin from Hymenaea verrucosa (Fabaceae) is found in East Africa and is used in incense. By the 18th century, Europeans found it to be a valuable ingredient in making a good wood varnish. It became widely used in the manufacture of furniture and carriages. It was also sometimes used as a picture varnish
The word "Copal" is derived from the Nahuatl language word "Copalli", meaning incense, and in the Pre-Culombian Maya and contemporary Maya people it is known as "Pom".
Copal is still used by a number of indigenous people of Mexico and Central America as an incense, during sweet lodge ceremonies and Sacres Mushrooms ceremonies" - Info extracted from Wikipedia.
In 2009, after a little inspiration, we started making the real pure resin incense sticks that came to be known as Mayan Copal. From Southern Mexico, in the Chiapas Highlands.
