Dammar resin is a natural resin from a tree. It seeps out of the tree from a cut, similar to how maple syrup is harvested from maple trees. It dries in large lumps or crystals.
Dammar is a light, white resin with a milky finish, which emits a light lemony scent when burnt. In Hindi the word ‘Dammar’ means light and is a reference to the light fracturing quality of this resin. It also describes its ethereal nature. It is used to dispel the demons of depression and bring light to the depth of the soul. Dammar is used for healing and protection.
