Copaiba essential oil is steam distilled from the gum resin that is tapped from the Brazilian Copaifera reticulata tree and known for its gentle, woodsy aroma.

Copaiba oil has high levels of beta-caryophyllene which helps create a relaxing atmosphere diffused or applied topically but it does SO much more!

An article on PubMed, where doctors and medical researchers publish their findings, says "Beta (β)-caryophyllene (BCAR) is a major sesquiterpene of various plant essential oils reported for several important pharmacological activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, gastroprotective, nephroprotective, antimicrobial, and immune-modulatory activity. Recent studies suggest that it also possesses neuroprotective effect."

My friend Gerrin Chenault puts Copaiba Vitality under his tongue every morning to reduce inflammation.1 
Note: Whether your bottle says Copiabia or Copaiba Vitality, the same oil goes in both bottles. We have both because of labelling laws.

Copaiba is also a great addition to your daily routines. Add it to a non-toxic, unscented moisturizer or body lotion and apply to your face and body. Try it for puffy eyes or when your body aches after a workout.

Copaiba resin was first recorded in European medicine in 1625 and was used in the treatment of bronchitis, chronic diarrhea, chronic cystitis, and as a topical preparation for hemorrhoids. Interestingly, in the United States, it was an official drug in the U.S. Pharmacopeia from 1820 to 1910.

In northwest Amazonia, copaiba resin is used topically by indigenous tribes as a wound healer, for skin sores and psoriasis, to stop bleeding, and to treat gonorrhea. Healers and curanderos in the Amazon today use copaiba resin for all types of pain, for skin disorders and insect bites, and to cool inflammation.

In Brazilian herbal medicine systems the resin is used as a strong antiseptic and expectorant for the respiratory tract (including bronchitis and sinusitis), as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic for the urinary tract (for cystitis, bladder, and kidney infections), as a topical anti-inflammatory agent for all types of skin problems.
