ABOUT THE OIL
This soothing, balancing oil is wonderful by itself for those who enjoy its complex aroma. It also has a host of therapeutic benefits. The active components in Copaiba essential oil are quite powerful, consisting mainly of terpenes, which are hydrocarbons that can have significant effects on the functioning of our body. Copaiba oil is exceptionally rich in a special nutrient called beta-caryophyllene. This substance is its chief anti-inflammatory component. Copaiba oil contains roughly 50% beta caryophyllene, which is 6 – 8 times the amount found in clove essential oil (known as a superlative antioxidant). Considered one of the most anti-inflammatory substances on earth, yet much of the world only uses Copaiba as a lacquer or varnish. Because Copaiba Balsam contains over 90% sesquiterpenes, the oil is said to be a powerful anti-inflammatory and may also exhibit anti-bacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Always test a small amount of essential oil first for sensitivity or allergic reaction. Allergy to this oil is rare but if there is , then one should discontinue its use at once.
