Xochicopal ~Copal Florido~Flowering Copal Oil
Xochicopal in Nahuatl (native Mexican language) translates to flowering copal
or copal florido in Spanish. The essential oil extracted and distilled from a
copal tree related to the copal blanco tree (bursera bipinnata). Traditionally
known and used for hundreds of years due to its multiple benefits. It has been
traditionally used by natives in Mexican communities in the states of Puebla
and Guerrero to treat anxiety, seizures, insomnia, insect bites, and other
diseases. This product is rarely available and only few people still practice
the tradition of extracting this oil. My great grandfather and his forefathers
practiced this art. It is laborious due to its lengthy process as the tools
used are not modern. My father was the last to continue the tradition. I now
have extended family members who continue with this tradition and the
harvesting of copal. Currently, there are sustainability focused organizations
supervising the extraction of this oil and planting of more trees. Several
decades ago these trees were almost extinct. Only a certain amount of this oil
is extracted per year under sustainability process. The xochicopal offered was
extracted through sustainability efforts.
Traditional use: the oil is used topically and ingested for various health
It is recommended that this oil be used topically on skin only. The formula is
one used in my family for many generations to address insomnia, respiratory
issues and to relax. Traditionally it has been used to address nervous system
issues and seizures.
Method of use: rub one drop behind neck area for calming. You may also rub a
drop under nose area. Rub one drop on chest and one drop on upper back for
respiratory issues. Rub more drops if needed.
Precaution- although no problems have been reported with the ingredients
contained in this bottle, it is important to use precaution when using on face
and avoid around and in eye area.
My knowledge in this area is based on experience in working with and utilizing
herbs for this and other purposes. I am not a graduate of herbal medicine or
practices from an institution or program, nor studied under any person. I am a
descendent of those who have practiced traditional medicine in Mexico for
generations. I have been shared information by family throughout my life. This
is a way of life for me and it has been since I have recollection. Every
product that I offer at my shop and that is for the purpose of spiritual and
space harmonizing I have used myself.
