Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Derived from the resin of the copaiba tree, Copaiba essential oil has a calming, woody aroma often diffused for its gentle, soothing scent. Copaiba essential oil has a thick, soft consistency and is soothing to the skin. Because of its rich topical properties, Copaiba essential oil is widely used to improve the appearance of skin.
Why should I add Copaiba oil to my collection? Copaiba essential oil has a uniquely mellow, wood-like aroma thanks to its primary chemical constituent, caryophylene. Caryophylene is the same constituent that gives Black Pepper essential oil its distinguished sharp aroma, of which Copaiba essential oil is mildly reminiscent. Copaiba essential oil also contains properties that make it more gentle, topically soothing, and richly moisturizing than many other wood and resin essential oils used in personal care (such as Frankincense oil or Cedarwood oil).
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
For external use only. Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
