"Incienso"(aka. Peruvian Gold Copal) is a hard, somewhat brittle golden/orangish resin harvested in the Peruvian Amazon. The resin burns very similarly to that of other South and Central American copal resins when placed upon a hot coal. In appearance and basic aroma, it seems like it could be a lighter form from the Protium genus. We have nicknamed it 'Squash Copal' in our household for its wonderfully unique notes reminiscent of pumpkin or butternut squash. The resin is used as an incense in the Amazon for spiritual purposes and sometimes in conjunction with Ayahuasca ceremonies. We seen Incienso associated with the Air element and with Mercury as its celestial body.

As of 2016, we have decided to majorly simplify the taxonomic structures of the species collection. Due to the numerous systems available, and many species being disputed and in a state of flux, we feel that most of our audience will be better served with a easier to understand condensed listing.
