Copal incense is completely natural incense that is used to purify the energy of spaces, places and objects. It has a clean, light, woody scent that could be compared to pine or turpentine. One of the best copal uses is burning it to clear away all the negative energy and make positive changes. It brings a very positive and loving energy that will fill your home with peaceful energies. We use copal resin and incense as part of our jewelry and crystal cleansing and activation process in our sacred healing room. Using copal incense sticks is simple. Try one of these cleansing methods: To cleanse your healing crystal jewelry, hold the piece and allow it to fully submerge in the smoke. You may notice the jewelry 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.
