Description

A sacred copal perfume oil. There is an incense-like quality to this deep amber oil, owing to the dark, sweet copal resin that is sustainably wild-harvested on the property of our herbalist partner in Baja Sur, Mexico. It is the flowers though that animate the scent and become an unexpected star – from the temple to the meadow, the scent is abundant with delicate peony, lavish Grand Duke Jasmine, powdery tuberose, and the velvety green snap of gardenia. Each of our precious, concentrated flower oils are painstakingly handmade using enfleurage, an ancient method of perfumery that can take months because the essences are achieved without any heat.

How To Use

Use a drop or two on the wrist, behind the ear, or on any pulse point.

Each ingredient in this exotic and unusual perfume oil is painstakingly handmade. Our copal is sustainably wild-harvested by our herbalist partner in La Paz, Baja Sur, Mexico. Each of the flowers in this singular fusion are crafted into a few ounces of precious oil through enfleurage, an ancient method of perfumery that can take months because the concentrated oils are achieved without any heat.  

Dance of the Dead

The ancient Mayans and Aztecs offered prayers to the gods through plumes of copal smoke, an effort to influence and interact with their deities with its ethereal scent. In Mexico, the scent of copal was thought to lure the dearly departed from the grave to the family altar and for many years the aromatic resin has been an integral part of Day of the Dead celebrations.

Dance of the Dead
Copal is still thought to be imbued with magical qualities and is widely thought of as a conduit between our world and the spirit realm. Also a meditative aid, the rich scent of copal is said to clear negativity, remove energy blockage, and open the soul to intuition and creativity.

Each vanity bottle is hand blown piece by piece by a small collective of glass artisans in Illinois. A sparkling, glitter-dusted smoke grey glass, the hollow, hand blown dabber is shaped like a flame, a brilliant beacon to illuminate the journey of the departed.
