Copaiba Essential Oil Uses, Benefits & Recipes

Very special yet often overlooked, Copaiba essential oil is only recently getting the recognition it truly deserves. In the past I’ve found that those that just dabble in essential oils hadn’t even heard of it. It’s usually the true enthusiasts or wellness advocates that have personal experience with Copaiba; I’m hoping to change that. 

Copaiba essential oil has been extensively studied and early on was compared to CBD oil because it has the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene of any other known essential oil at 55% (up to 10x more than other oils). Without getting too scientific, this means Copaiba is a powerful essential oil and it initiates a physical response that no other essential oil can. If you decide to dig into the research you’re going to wonder why you’ve never heard of it before.

In addition to being an amazing oil alone, Copaiba is a known driver meaning that it magnifies the effect of any essential oil it’s combined with. When combined you can use less of the other oil but get twice the benefit; how cool is that?

Copaiba essential oil is versatile and provides excellent benefits to complement everyday life. It has a slightly sweet, balsamic and woodsy aroma (it reminds me of spicy honey) that is pleasing to the senses making it an excellent companion.

Copaiba Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Here is 6 wonderful ways you can benefit from using Copaiba essential oil:

Ease Physical Discomfort

Copaiba studies have primarily centered on its unique ability to provide comfort during physical distress; and this is why Copaiba is often compared to the effects of CBD oil. People can have different experiences with essential oils but most will take advantage of the powerful pain relieving benefits that Copaiba is known for.

Powerful Antioxidant

The caryophyllene component in Copaiba is neuroprotective and it provides amazing support to the immune system. It is believed to regulate circulation and support cardiovascular health and wellness. 

Peace and Calm

Copaiba is potent and highly effective at calming the nervous system. It will relieve tension, lower stress and can encourage a clear and calm state of mind. When diffused it creates a warm, comforting and inviting environment. Whenever you need to be grounded, Copaiba should be your go-to essential oil. 

Healthy, Radiant Skin

When used in your skin care regimen, Copaiba can improve the appearance of skin imperfections. It is used to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Copaiba is being used in many DIY beauty products with great success; face toners, body scrubs, foaming soap and beard oil are all popular. To take advantage of the naturally sweet scent, add a few drops to a non-scented moisturizer.

Fight Inflammation

My anti-inflammatory of choice, Copaiba regulates the body’s physical response to irritation or inflammation. It is often used to relieve stiffness and support aching muscles as result of an immune response. When you combine Copaiba essential oil with Frankincense you get a double whammy; it can work miracles on skin irritation, too. 

Do not underestimate the powerful ability of Copaiba essential oil; it’s truly one of the most-effective essential oils and I want you to try it for yourself. This one will not disappoint!

Copaiba isn’t one of the most popular essential oils but it is one of the most effective. Even though Copaiba is most known for easing pain, inflammation and discomfort it works wonders on your physical, emotional and spiritual state of mind when diffused.
