For my nightly ritual I use Black and White Copal, I reserve the Gold Copal and my Amazon Gold for Fire Festivals and for my Ancestral Feast ( Known by others as either Samhain or the Day of the Dead)  The trees which provide us with copal are on the Threatened Species List.  Be aware of the harvesting methods used by your supplier and use sparingly.
