Copal Myrrh & Rose Soap Bar is infused with sacred and traditional Mayan ceremonial incense from the Mayan sites of Uaxactun: Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. We add Rose Absolute to create a relaxing blend of essential oils that smell divine and keep skin moisturized. Antigua is also filled with roses - the local market has a variety of varieties.
Copal has been used traditionally by the Maya in Guatemala for burning during sacred ceremonies and is believed to purify the air and spirit. To the ancient Maya, the divine God of the Earth extracted Copal resin from the Tree of Life and gave it to the humans as a gift. It is a resin similar to amber with a smoky, sweet aroma. The organic Copal we use for Tierra & Lava products is harvested from trees in the Uaxactun village and Mayan site of Guatemala (just behind Tikal). Frankincense and Myrrh are combined with Copal to burn as incense for ceremonies and also happen to have amazing skincare properties that the Egyptians made use of centuries ago.
All of our soaps are made using cold process techniques. They are inspired by traditional mayan practices, drinks and spices. Close your eyes and turn your shower into a peaceful and sensual experience with the sweet, subtle scent of incense and rose.
