Copaiba's often the unsung hero of the starter bundle, but it's a great oil to have. Put it on after Panaway to boost its effectiveness. It's the master of zen you'll want in your relaxation tool box.

Let's meet Copaiba!
From the heart of the Amazon jungles of Brazil, copaiba oleo resin is tapped directly from the tree. A hole is drilled into the trunk of the 50 to 80 foot tall tree and out will pour its liquid resin. The resin is then vacuum distilled, using no water, no heat, only vacuum pressure to separate off the precious essential aromatic oil. Brazilian tribal natives harvest and process the Copaiba sold through Young Living.

Copaiba has the highest concentration of essential oils of beta-caryophyllene. Beta-caryophyllene is also found in Helichrysum at between 8 and 12%, while Copaiba contains 50%-70% beta-caryophyllene. Clove oil contains 6-8% beta-caryophyllene by comparison. Look up this constituent and learn more about it and its benefits.
In a July 2009 conference call with one of the original researchers at YL who studied Copaiba for eight years, said it is his number one favorite oil with Frankincense coming in at number 2. "Think of Copaiba as Helichrysum on steroids", he said. Just like Sandalwood is considered an excellent emotional supportive oil, he suggested that Copaiba is six times better and calls Copaiba - “Sandalwood on steroids” due to its high sesquiterpene content. He also likes Copaiba mixed with a little Peppermint to apply topically for occasional muscle discomfort.



• Jazz up your bath by adding a few drops Copaiba and Peace & Calming to your soap and loofah for a cozy aroma and scrub.

 Mix 1 drop each of Copaiba, German Chamomile and Jasmine with your favorite unscented lotion for a luxurious body lotion scent.

Copaiba oil has a uniquely sweet aromatic profile, which won’t overpower soft florals or subtle hints of citrus. Use it in customized perfumes in place of other woodsy oils like Cedarwood or Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood oil for a more delicate summer fragrance that won’t be overpowering in warmer temperatures.

After a hard workout, strenuous hike, or overall stressful day, share a Copaiba massage with a loved one. Dilute Copaiba with V6 Vegetable Oil Complex or a carrier oil of your choice and massage on fatigued areas after activity for a comforting cooldown.

• Enjoy a foot soak by adding 1/2 cup Epsom salts into a foot bath full of warm water, and 2 drops each Panaway and Copaiba. 


• Add a roller fitment to your Copaiba bottle and roll on bottom of feet after a long day, your feet will thank you!

• Add 3 drops to a scoop of Epsom salts along with 3 drops Lavender for a relaxing bath.

• Diffuse 3 drops Copaiba with Frankincense before bedtime for a restful sleep.

DID YOU KNOW: We have lavender that is labelled for food flavouring? Same oil, but different label, as required by Health Canada. It's called the PLUS line. Look for the bottle with the white label, with the (+) sign.  Want to know more about these oils? Check it out here.
