Copaiba Essential Oil

Copaiba essential oil. Have you heard of it? For the longest time I assumed I did not need this oil in my collection until I received it in my second Young Living Premium Starter Kit and actually started using it (yes, I've bought several kits - they are the best bang for your money when you're using the oils all the time, especially if you want another diffuser!). So, what is it? Do you really need it? What is it for?

What is Copaiba

Copaiba essential oil is steam distilled from the gum resin tapped from Copal trees (copaifera reticulate, langsdorfii, or mltijuga). It contains sesquiterpene constituents, including β-caryophyllene and α-copaene (something to look up for those of you who are research geeks).

Copaiba essential oil helps support your cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems and your skin. It's also known for enhancing the effects of other oils its blended with, for its calming properties, and can be soothing to the digestive system. Historically, its been used throughout the Amazon to help people heal and support their bodies in overcoming injuries. In Peruvian traditional medicine, a few drops of copaiba essential oil is added to a spoonful of honey and swallowed to help support and boost the body's immune system. It's a valuable essential oil that definitely deserves its own space within your essential oil stock.
