Product Description

Latin Name: Bureseru microphylla
Common Names: Copal Oro Pieces 

Bureseru microphylla, better known as the "elephant tree," is the source of Copal Oro Pieces. Although these are available from most businesses that offer herbs and spices in bulk, organic Copal Oro Pieces are not an herb, but rather a type of resin derived from the sap of this tree, which is native to the desert regions Northern Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. 

In the language of the Nahuatl Indians, the word kopali means "incense." Copal Oro Pieces were indeed used in the religious rites of Mexico's indigenous peoples, including the Mayans, the Mexica, the Aztecs and more. Shamans burned dried Copal Oro Pieces just as if they were dried herbs, and then inhaled the smoke in order to commune with their gods. 

Organic Copoal Oro Pieces are not necessarily like herbs that are taken internally. Traditionally, Copal Oro Pieces were used in folk dentistry for filling cavities. It is also used as a medicinal herb by the Guarani Indians of Brazil. 

When burned outdoors, whole Copal Oro Pieces give off a resinous smell that is pleasant to humans, but not to insect pests. Sliced copal oro pieces can be melted down and used as a non-toxic adhesive for broken pottery as well.

Warning: For external use only.
