White Copal: White copal has alight, sweet and warm scent. The word Copal is from the Aztec word “copalli” and was considered the sacred blood of the trees. In line with most other incenses, Copal has a long history of traditional use as a space clearer, eradicating negative energy from places and objects. It’s clean, light and woody scent is said to bring a positive and loving energy that will fill the home with peaceful energies, soothe the mind and relieve symptoms of anxiety & stress.
Pontifical: Pontifical incense consists of three types of gum granules: Olibanum, Myrrh and Gum Benjoin. These granules are obtained from different gum trees, in particular the African Boswellia Papyrifera and Commiphora Myrra and the Asian Styrax Benzoin. The granules have been washed in perfume oils and are colored with pigments which are all EU-approved. Pontifical is an incense meant for use in rituals. An Orthodox-style Church resin, it uses an ancient traditional blend of aromatic resins Frankincense, Myrrh, Benzoin and Styrax.
Palo Santo: Palo Santo is a sacred fragrance tree in South America that mean "Holy Wood". Palo Santo Resin is valued for its spiritual and medicinal benefits as well as for its sweet, even, woodsy scent. Palo Santo has been used for thousands of years in Peru and Ecuador by shamans and healers. It is said to bring luck and ward off negativity, and is thought to help provide therapeutic healing energies, giving you a more profound connection to your being.
