Copaiba Essential Oil Benefits And Recipes

An oil I just started learning about is Copaiba.

Have you tried it yet?

This oil is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree. That tree is found in South America and grows up to 100ft tall!

(if you’re curious it is pronounced co-pie-EE-ba)

The oil is extracted from the tree similar to how you would derive syrup from a maple tree.

It has a very mild sweet aroma and mixes well with other essential oils.

It is heavier than most oils so a little goes a long way.

Copaiba Essential Oil Benefits

Here are just some of the benefits of Copaiba Essential Oil and below I will include recipes you can use it in.

  1. Boosts the effectiveness of other essential oils
  2. Helps reduce the appearance of blisters, marks, scars, and pimples
  3. Soothes aching joints and loosens tense muscles (even for your dog)
  4. Helps ease headaches and migraines

  7. Fights infections
  8. Helps digestion

  10. Eases chest congestion
  11. Provides a boost to the immune system

How to use copaiba essential oil. Recipes and benefits.

How To Use Copaiba Essential Oil

You can use Copaiba as a single oil or blended with other oils.

Here are the main ways you can use it:

  1. Massage the oil directly into the affected area
  2. Diffuse in your favorite cool mist diffuser
  3. Add a few drops into your palm and inhale or put drops in an inhaler.
  4. In a roller bottle with a carrier oil
  5. Apply to the soles of your feet
  6. In your bath

Note: I don’t recommend ingesting Copaiba Oil unless the bottle specifically states it can be used internally.

For example, the Isagenix Content Essential Oil states on the bottle that it can be ingested.

  2. We love Copaiba in our house (thank you for the pronunciation tip on it — I’ve been saying it wrong!) 🙂 We use it for bedtime a lot. I love some of the ideas you shared about how to use it for muscle tension and headaches. Great tips! Thanks so much for posting!

      Amanda, I wasn’t pronouncing it right either until I looked it up for this article. I’m glad I have this oil now. So many uses for it that I may have to update this post again in the future.
