The honeyed, almost fruity scent of copal (pronounced 'COEpul') is popular among loose incense lovers. Think of summer, mexican flowerfields, nectar and honeybees.
Like all gums/resins, copal is burned loose on charcoals, a pinch at a time (see video). Also like most gums / resins, it is not attributed with a particular magical property in Europe, though native Central American traditions ascribe particular properties to it. It can be burned on its own and smells wonderful. If it is used in a magical incense recipe, it provides a base for the herbs, oils and woods which are added to it.
