Manila copal (sometimes called “Gold Copal”) is a natural resin obtained from an agathis tree native to the Philippines. It is prized for its rich aroma, versatile commercial use, and spiritual significance with folk medicinal practitioners. Its name is often interchangeably used with kamangyan, though there is a distinct difference in color and scent.
Manila copal is well-known for its sweet scent which has been compared to vanilla and honey. It has a soft, warm, earthy quality that is both calming and uplifting, making it a popular choice for meditation and relaxation practices.
The resin is traditionally burned as incense, releasing its fragrant smoke which has purifying and cleansing properties. It helps clear negative energy and promote a sense of peace and harmony. The benefits of burning Manila Copal include:
- Invite higher frequencies of spiritual connection to angelic realms
- Establish clearer communication channels to spirit guides and ancestors
- Dispel negative energy
Our Manila Copal is sourced directly from native trees that are harvested from by local practitioners on the island of Panay, Philippines. It is 100% natural, unprocessed, and may contain debris and other organic matter.
