Sal is a resin from the tropical Sal tree (Shorea Robusta) The Sal tree is an object of worship among Buddhists and Hindus in India and the adjoining countries.It is used by shamans as a traveling agent for its psychoactive properties.

and all in its presence are uplifted. (from “Shamanism and Tantra in the Himalayas”)
