Copal, Dammar as some call it- resin Premium grade
This is an interesting type of Copal- It is called White Copal or Dammar Gum, which is not a gum but a pure oleoresin because it contains no water-soluble gum.
Dammar is collected from a wide variety of trees and it is in the Dipterocarpaceae family, principally those of the genera Shorea.
This copal comes Malaysia and Indonesia. This particular one is from Indonesia.
This resin has an interesting smell when burned. It is very light with a lemon citrusy smell. and I found it very refreshing. It is basically sweated out of the trees to pull the resin out.
It has many interesting uses. It is used to make varnish for oil paintings.
It is used to make incense also.
One of its interesting usages is for smudging one's home. To get rid of the "eeby geebies" or bad sorts in an entire house or a room. If you are down and out- burn this resin to give you a bit of an uplifting and bringing light to one's soul. It makes you feel radiant and gives you an "awe" feeling.
Because it is actually oil soluble it dissolves quite easily in a carrier oil or alcohol which makes it good when making incense or for paints.
Just so you know it is NOT ingestable nor should be used on one's skin. It is only for burning.
This copal has beautiful pieces and comes mixed in different sizes with some large pieces that I will include in your purchase. It is considered a premium grade.
Resins may irritate the skin so please handle with care.
