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.

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

Where To Buy Your Copaiba Essential Oil
Not all oil brands are created equal so do your due diligence when deciding what brand to use.
The brands I’m currently using are Plant Therapy, Simply Earth, and Isagenix Essence.
Why 3 different companies?
Each company has it’s unique qualities and benefits.
Here’s how they are different but be sure to click thru to research for yourself.
Plant Therapy has a wide range of therapeutic oils with free shipping and promotions weekly. (direct link to Copaiba oil)
Simply Earth has an awesome subscription box which I recommend to anyone new to essential oils. (direct link to Copaiba oil)
The February 2019 box contains Copaiba oil. Read my review here
Isagenix is a network marketing company and has a small line of oils included in their weight wellness program. They do not have a Copaiba Essential Oil but they do have an oil blend containing Copaiba which is used to help curb appetite and cravings for junk food. Read more about the Content Essential Oil here.

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