    Copal + Rosemary
    Maya Smudging Blend

    Maya Healers believe that burning ceremonial incense, especially copal and rosemary, is important to help one move past the emotions that are causing the physical ‘dis- ease’.

    Healing with plants has been an integral, revered part of life on earth since the earliest times, and like other cultures, the Maya have their own vast body of plant knowledge for both physical and spiritual healing

    Maya Healers know that ritual and ceremonies are as vital to the patient as the herbs, teas, and tinctures or other recommendations.

    Copal- Quote-“The Copal tree is considered a spirit in its own right and is also capable of cancelling out evil.”
    Quote- “She burned Copal all night, and for the first time since she took ill, we didn’t have to tie our mother down on the bed.” –Rosita Arvigo “Sastun” (both quotes)
    Lore- The resin from the Copal tree is used by Maya healers for the purposes of dispelling evil. The quote above was referring to a woman who was healed from a bad case of spirit possession in Rosita Arvigo’s “Sastun” a book on her apprenticeship with a Maya Healer named Don Elijio. He would often mix Rosemary and Copal to cleanse etheric space of all evil. Maya Healers also use the resin to induce trance states and make space right for divinatory practices. In Guatemala, Saint Statues are passed through the smoke for purification reasons

    Rosemary- The last time that I had a hard time sleeping because of a nightmare of one kind or another, I placed some rosemary into my pillow. Very forcefully, I was pulled from the consciousness of the negative dream to a place where images were much more pleasant. It was as if hands were in my brain rapidly tapping out codes to alter my consciousness.
    Quote-“I rushed back to the cement house with the coals, catching Panti dousing the woman with holy water from head to foot, nearly shouting the Mayan prayers over her. I went to fetch the pieces of Copal…He also sprinkled dried Rosemary on the coals as he repeated the prayers and held her pulse.” –Rosita Arvigo “Sastun”
    Lore- Rosemary is said to stimulate memory. It also promotes joy in people feeling the blues. It is extremely famous in esoteric circles for getting rid of bad dreams once sprinkled inside of a pillow. It has been used to attract luck and is often mixed with copal to aid in spiritual purification. Rosemary is an all around sub for any spiritual use.
    Medicinal Factoid- “Drink a tea of leaves to cleanse stomach of mucus.”
