White Mexican Copal Resin

Adam Michael has this to say “This is a true Mexican fragrant beauty and is featuring heavily on my oil burner at present. The resin is in the form of gorgeous white creamy coloured pieces and of which melt with little fuss on the oil burner**. The aroma has similarities to smelling a Lisylang and Elemi combo, full of addictive spiced warmth and white floral qualities. And let’s not forget the abundance of soft pink peppery nuances throughout that are further complimented with delicate green notes. This resin is a masterclass aromatic. This is a must resin for tincturing, used to improve Hawaiian themed floral accords, improve pink pepper notes and will work generally in harmony with lactone rich compositions. Highly recommended.”

Botanical Name: Bursera bipinnata

** At Hermitage Oils should you wish to burn the material neat we would recommend burning the material on an oil burner opposed to using charcoal disks. If you follow this recommendation we also advise placing a piece of foil in the well of your oil burner and then laying the resin on top. This prevents lots of mess and cleaning after use and by using an oil burner you get to enjoy much more of the aroma of the resin than when using charcoal disks.
