COPAIBA

There's been a lot of talk about this oil in recent times. Its really no wonder! Copaiba is an oil to get excited about.

Copaiba is an oil similar to Black Pepper, with a spicy/woody aroma. It supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive and respiratory systems, is a powerful antioxidant, helps calm, soothe, and support the nervous system, AND promotes clear, smooth skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes.

Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and can be taken internally to guard and support the immune and cardiovascular systems. It is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes and since the 16th century has been utilised in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil.

Copaiba does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids (these are the compounds that give Cannibis its 'high' effect), BUT its main component is β-caryophyllene, which is actually the component known to give cannabis oil its THERAPEUTIC benefits. While the controversial CBD (cannabis) oil usually contains around 35% of such compounds, Copaiba contains them at UP TO 50%! In this way, Copaiba can be shown to offer far better outcomes for those who really need it.

Copaiba is fantastic for ANXIETY, neuroprotective, supports liver function,
is calming, soothing and restoring to the digestive system, is supportive of autoimmune related concerns, balances and normalises the endocrine system, calms and soothes excited neurological tissues (eg.tremours), has incredible anti-inflammatory properties and a fantastic natural analgesic or pain relief agent. Also great for cellular health and skin rejuvenation!

Part of what I love about doTERRA is their commitment to positive impact on the people and places from which they source their oils. doTERRA frequently do sourcing trips like this one, where wellness advocates have the opportunity to see where the oils they know and love have come from. doTERRA's commitment to quality means they only choose the best sources, with the lowest environmental impact, and with long-developed relationships with communities. In the beauty and skincare industry, its rare to find fair-trade and ethically sourced products such as these. 

The list goes on! You can check out some more information about Copaiba via pages such as these:
