Copaiba Essential Oil: Calming Oil that May Dispel Your Anxious Feelings While Delivering Many Other Important Benefits
Extracted from copaiba trees in the Amazon rainforest, copaiba essential oil is distilled directly from copaiba oleoresin. Tapped in a way that is very similar to the harvesting process for creating syrup from maple trees, copaiba resins and oils contain beta-caryophyllene, which is described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) as “a dietary cannabinoid.” The dōTERRA blog explains that beta-caryophyllene is, “…a chemical similar to cannabinoids found in cannabis that may protect nerve cells and have benefits for the cardiovascular and immune systems.”*
But what is beta-caryophyllene, really?
In fact, beta-caryophyllene is the chemical component that gives black pepper, oregano, and other spices their pungent and appealing ‘bite.’ By tapping into the towering copaiba tree to extract and distill copaiba oil, dōTERRA is making available to you the potential benefits of this natural compound, and as dōTERRA’s blog explains, “Although Copaiba does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids, the main component caryophyllene may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.”*
What Can Copaiba Essential Oil Do for You?
Wow… good question! Used for hundreds of centuries in the traditional health practices of northern and northeastern Brazil, copaiba essential oil is also used commercially in soaps, lotions, and perfumes for its restorative benefits and calming, woodsy fragrance.
While researchers continue to learn more about neuroprotective applications for copaiba oil, (see: Copaiba Oil-Resin Treatment Is Neuroprotective and Reduces Neutrophil Recruitment and Microglia Activation after Motor Cortex Excitotoxic Injury), dōTERRA customers and Wellness Advocates are putting this warm, aromatic oil to use in beneficial ways like these:
