Copaiba Essential Oil

Copaiba (pronounced cO-pah-EE-bah) is a beautiful oil with special properties. It is amazing to have this in your essential oil starter kit collection. Steam distilled from resin, copaiba helps to promote wholebody wellness.

Copaiba. This is a stick it to the man oil. It has the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene (55percent) of any known essential oil. I use it to drive home panaway when I need it. It’s a new addition to the premium starter kit as of June 2015 and is in my top 3 favorite oils of ALL TIME. I jumped up and down when I found out they were adding it to the kit. I have issues. Copaiba helps with the body’s normal response to injury.  It enhances the power of other essential oils, working synergistically with them.
