Copal is a resin found in tree bark that is used for sacred clearing and cleansing rituals. Copal is sometimes considered to be a premature amber, or a sub-fossil. We searched high and low for an ethically sourced Copal resin and were so pleased to find the Martinez family. These packs of hand rolled White Copal Incense sticks smell divine and when burned, transports you into a meditative state.
From the crafters:
"Native Pueblo, owned by the Martinez Family, consists of artists from various parts of the Southwest. Our family is scattered throughout Arizona and New Mexico and extends South to the border of Mexico.

It’s a great energy that keeps us going!. In most festivals we also get to share our music, our history and sometimes our dances.
