About Copaiba:

The most important and impressive health benefits of copaiba essential oil include its ability to reduce pain and inflammation, protect against infections, heal the skin, prevent fungal growth, and boost the respiratory health. It improves the health of the skin and hair, maintains bladder control, speeds up healing, tightens the skin, and lowers blood pressure as well.

Copaiba essential oil is a wonderful analgesic and has been used in this aromatherapy capacity for generations. According to a study, individuals with joint pain and inflammation who used copaiba reported favorable results. “Copaiba is an essential oil that is used topically with little or no side effects,” says Dr. Charles Hennekens, the first Sir Richard Doll Professor, senior academic advisor to the dean in Florida Atlantic University’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, and senior author of the paper. Whether in an aromatherapeutic context or when topically applied, the oil can help to reduce pain and loosen muscles and even ease the discomfort of headaches and migraines.

In aromatherapy, copaiba essential oil has often been used to lighten the spirit and improve mood. There aren’t many essential oils that have such a sweet, pleasant smell of rich honey, and the combination of the scent and its gentle effects on your hormonal balance can significantly improve your day.
