What is the difference between Frankincense and Copal?
Have you ever heard of frankincense and copal resins? In the wellness and spiritual community, these two resins are highly sought after for their many properties and benefits. But what exactly are they, and how can they be used to enhance your wellness? Let's take a closer look at frankincense and copal resins.
Frankincense resin is made from the dried sap of the Boswellia tree, which is native to Africa, India, the Middle East, and some parts of Europe. It has been used for centuries in religious ceremonies and rituals due to its calming effects. You can find it in incense sticks or cones, but it can also be used as an oil or added to bathwater. The scent is slightly sweet with notes of lemon, pine, spice, and wood. It works best when diffused into the air through a diffuser or burner as this helps disperse its healing properties throughout the room. It has also been known to help reduce stress levels while increasing mental clarity and focus.
Copal resin comes from different types of trees found primarily in Mexico, Central America, South America, India, China, Japan and New Zealand. It has been used since ancient times by indigenous cultures in religious ceremonies due to its uplifting scent that encourages positivity while helping to clear negative energy from spaces. Copal resin has a sweet aroma that is woody with hints of cinnamon or clove-like scents depending on its origin. When burned in a burner or diffuser it can help bring feelings of calmness while improving concentration levels. It's also believed to have cleansing properties that help protect against negative influences while providing physical protection from harm or danger.
Resins have numerous benefits when it comes to promoting physical health as well as emotional wellbeing. Frankincense resin helps reduce stress levels while improving mental clarity whereas copal resin brings feelings of positivity while cleansing any negative energy from your environment which makes them both valuable additions to any wellness routine! Whether you choose one or both resins for your practice is up to you – all that matters is that you find what works best for you! Happy burning!
