Lesson 1 – Copaiba Basics – why it’s so talked about
COPAIBA is one of the most popular and talked-about Essential Oils. It has often been compared to CBD Oil. In this Class, we’ll show you why.
COPAIBA’S benefits are many, and we are going to be learning all about them, so let’s get the basics covered.
This remarkable oil has been used in many different cosmetic products, including soaps, creams, and even perfumes, but COPAIBA Essential Oil has also been used in traditional health practices in north and northeastern Brazil.
Interesting fact: COPAIBA is sourced from South America where the Copaiba tree can grow more than 100 feet tall.
COPAIBA is steam distilled from the resin of the Copaiba tree, giving it a spicy and woody aroma.
And here’s a key point: COPAIBA’s main constituent is a sesquiterpene, BETA-CARYOPHYLLENE. Beta-caryophyllene is also found in Black Pepper, Melissa, Clove, and Rosemary Essential Oils, but the difference is that COPAIBA is composed of more than 50% beta-caryophyllene.
This gives COPAIBA a unique edge in supporting a healthy nervous and immune function, as well as providing soothing and relaxing properties to the body.
COPAIBA has been compared to CBD oil because it uses the same pathways and receptors in the body's nervous system as CBD does. Because of this, it can provide very similar benefits. It is a significantly more affordable alternative that is extremely effective at providing massive benefits to the body.
COPAIBA can be used internally, topically, and aromatically. Dilute for sensitive skin.
When paired with other oils, COPAIBA is considered a modifier (an oil that has a mild and short fragrance that can add harmony to a blend). COPAIBA blends well with almost any Essential Oil, including Lavender, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Roman Chamomile, and Ylang Ylang.
Now, let’s get started learning the many practical ways YOU can use Copaiba to support the health of your family, and yourself.
QUESTION – DID YOU KNOW THAT SOURCING CAN CHANGE THE QUALITY OF THE ESSENTIAL OIL? Not all Copaiba oils are going to provide the same benefit. I use doTERRA's essential oils because of their sourcing and commitment to working with the farmers to ensure the crops are harvested sustainably and at the peak time to provide maximum therapeutic benefits. Their oils don't have an organic certification because often times it is not available in the country where the crop is sourced. Rest assured that because of their work with the farmers, their crops are as good as or better than organic quality.
