Cool and calm with Copaiba oil
Copaiba oil (kō-pĭˈbə) or (kō-pĭ-ee-bə) from the resin of the South American copaifera tree is like a best-kept secret. When you open the bottle, you may notice that it has a very light scent – wonderful for those who prefer less aroma. Some feel that it has a warm, honey or light woodsy scent. The delicate aroma can make it easier to apply when around others than some of the oils with similar effects but stronger scents.
Copaiba can feel calming and grounding when inhaled. Yet it is far more than a pleasant scent.
Copaiba has very high levels of a molecule called ‘Beta caryophyllene,’ which supports the body’s natural, cooling response to irritation or injury.
- Like frankincense, copaiba oil is tapped directly from the tree rather than distilled
- Copaiba has the highest levels of a kind of molecule called ‘Beta-caryophyllene’ of any oil known today. This molecule supports the body’s cooling response to physical stress
- Beta-caryophyllene is a kind of molecule known as a ‘sesquiterpene.’ Sesquiterpenes are held in high regard for the assistance they give to modulating emotions
- For more on either of these molecules, just type their name into your favorite search engine
- Original for aromatic (inhalation) or topical use, and
- ‘Vitality’ for internal use as a dietary supplement or in recipes
