Cool and calm with Copaiba oil

Every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth,
and every tree which has seed in its fruit, I have given you…
And God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.
~ Genesis 1:29, 31

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.

Copaiba essentials

  • 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


Fun facts

Copaiba can amplify or magnify the effects of other topical essential oils.
Young Living’s copaiba oil comes in two varieties:
  1. Original for aromatic (inhalation) or topical use, and
