Product Abstract: Copaiba Balsam Resin is extracted from trees growing in the wild. They are found mainly in the South American rain forests, particularly in Brazil, Columbia, Peru and Venezuela. The resin is harvested by tapping or drilling holes into the trunk of the tree, much like how rubber trees are tapped. Although this resin is often referred to as balsam, it is not a true balsam. Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil has been used historically as a fixative in perfumes and colognes.
Because Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil 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.
If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.
