Today it continues to be used as an offering in small household shrines as well as the steps of many churches. It is also used in cleansing and purifying ceremonies. Modern studies have found that copal has properties that positively influence the immune response of the human body.

Copal can be burned in any incense burner as well as any of our ceramic circle of friends.


Firstly you need to light a charcoal disc, then place this in the central dish of the circle of friends. Then just lay a small piece of copal on top of the red hot charcoal and your copal will start to smoke. We also sell a small ceramic brazier in a box set with copal and charcoal discs.
