Copaiba Essential Oil

I am surprised by the number of people who don’t know about Copaiba Essential Oil. It really is an unsung hero, especially for those who suffer from any skin issues or are plagued with pain from various musculoskeletal problems.

Pronounced Co-py-ba, it is a beautiful essential oil that comes from steam distilling the gum resin tapped from the Brazilian Copaifera reticulata tree.

Copaiba has calming properties that the skin really appreciates! It can be used to promote the appearance of youthful, radiant skin and it can help reduce the appearance of blemishes. 

It can also be used to soothe fatigued or painful muscles as well because it includes the naturally occurring constituent beta-caryophyllene

Why is beta-caryophyllene so important? Because it has a unique ability to bind with CB2 receptors. Beta-caryophyllene has potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. It is known to help relieve anxiety and physical pain and prevent Osteoporosis among many other things.

Here are some ways you can use Copaiba every day:

  • You can add it to any moisturiser to use on your skin, or create your own facial serum with organic jojoba oil or V6 to massage over your face and neck.
  • You can apply it diluted to flex points or directly on fatigued muscles to support your body post-exercise to cool down and support the recovery process
  • Diffuse it to create a warm, inviting environment


Copaiba is part of this month's Essential Rewards promotions so if you’re an ER subscriber, read on…
