POM / Copal Resin Incense Ritual
POM / Mayan for Copal, this light amber resin is produced by the Copal tree.
Originally used by indigenous cultures of Mexico and Central America to cleanse and purify, it emits a clean, energising and woody scent.
Burning Copal transports us back to our travels in Mexico, where we discovered and fell in love with this sacred incense.

HOW TO BURN /
• Remove the charcoal tablet from the sealed roll and place on a heat proof dish, burner or bowl.

• Place the disc on your dish and leave to rest for approximately 40 seconds. Begin adding pieces of Copal resin on the top of the disc, the bigger the amount the larger the burn/smoke. The size of your space will determine the amount of resin you will need - Small space: 1 piece, Medium space: 2 pieces, Large space: 3 pieces. Test as you wish, Copal resin is quite strong so start small and add pieces as you need. Let your resin burn on the disc until it is has completely melted and cooled.
Never hold the charcoal tablet with your hands when lighting or burning, always use brass tongs provided. If the tablet needs to be extinguished before it is fully cooled, then it should be placed in a container of cool water. After the charcoal disc has been lit, do not handle as it may cause burns. Do not dispose remaining ash until it is completely cooled.
