What is Copaiba Oil?
Copaiba essential oil is extracted from the resin of the magnificent Copaiba trees, which grow over 100 feet tall in South America. The use of Copaiba oil dates back to as far as the 16th century, where natives in northern Brazil used it in their traditional health practices. Today it is now used world wide in beauty products like creams, lotions and perfumes, and also therapeutically in it’s extracted oil form.

The link between Copaiba and Cannabis Oil (CBD)
One of the most fascinating things about Copaiba is that it contains BCP (beta-caryophyllene), which is one of the most effective and therapeutic compounds found in Cannabis Oil. Coming from the Copaiba tree, it does not contain any psychoactive or psychotropic cannabinoids (so there are no “highs” involved). So you can have similar health benefits as CBD, without worrying about THC contamination or any legal issues which are associated with CBD oil use.
Why we use the doTERRA Copiaba Essential Oil
DoTERRA uses four types of resin (the only one on the market to do so), to create an oil that has 60% BCP. It is safe, legal and also affordable. Affordability is especially important for us as we see a lot of clients with chronic health problems, and we wanted to be able to provide a product that could be used regularly for treatment that wouldn’t cost a fortune.
