Welcome to Simply Healthy Life’s series on essential oils, An Oil a Day. Here you will find simplified (but still in depth!) information about various essential oils and how they can be used.
Copaiba is an interesting and amazing oil with a weird name. (It’s pronounced ko-pah-ee-bah!)
Copaiba balsam (sap) is tapped directly from Copaifera trees and then steam distilled to make copaiba essential oil. These trees are primarily found in South America and copaiba has a history of being used in folk medicine. The annual prouction of copaiba in the Amazon is around 500 tons per year.
The primary constituent is beta-caryophyllene which is a sesquiterpene. Sesquiterpenes are good stuff. Go google it!
