Red AMBER Resin - 10 grams People have used this resin for years as a perfume. The amber resin used in incense is not related to amber fossils and is soft and very fragrant. The exotic fragrance of amber resin is extremely popular for its rich, earthy, musky scent. Amber Resins are completely natural, a wonderful alternative to chemically synthesized perfumes and diluted "Perfume Oils". The resin is excellent when worn as a solid perfume, as the fragrance intensifies with warmth (such as body heat). It is also a superb resin for charcoal burning, and a truly delicious fragrance for fine soaps, lotions and natural perfumes. Amber is not harvested with that sensual aroma all on its own, but rather it undergoes a slight manufacturing process. The amber comes from the amber resin tree (Liquidamber orientalis) and is usually mixed in a base of beeswax and combined with Styrax benzoin (Benzoin Gum). This produces the almost "sticky" effect and produces an easily applied resin. True amber resins should not contain artificial ingredients, petroleum by-products, or have any mineral base. Studies have shown that it has a psychoactive effect shown through biofeedback as a relaxant for brain waves, (alpha, beta, and theta). It has also been shown to "enhance" heart energy and increase sensual pleasure. Amber harmonizes, balances, purifies, & enhances the body & senses.
Copal - 30 grams This resin was used as a substitute for the burning of a human heart. The resin of the copal tree, native to Latin America, is traditionally used as incense in divinatory and cleansing ceremonies. Copal resin has been used ritually by Mesoamericans for centuries. Copal resin is traditionally burned in protection, cleansing and purification ceremonies. Large amounts of Copal Incense were burned on top of the Aztec and Mayan pyramids. A heady, hypnotic scent which is warm, sweet, resinous and slightly woody. Mildly Earthy and Spicy. Suited to trance work and meditation. Traditional Shaman's incense especially popular in Mexico amongst the Curanderoes (healers).
