Copaiba Be Essential Oil 10ml


Known for its restorative, anxiolytic and anti-inflammatory properties, copaiba oleoresin is extracted from a resin from a South American tree. It is traditionally used by the indigenous people of the Amazon jungle against pain and skin problems. Strong in healing properties this oil is compared to the 'Amazonian Mānuka'.

Product Details

Name: Copaiba

Scientific Name: Copaifera officinalis

Method of extraction: Direct extract

Part of plant: Tree sap

Main Components: β-caryophyllene (58,7%)



In addition to its wide use in perfumery as a perfume fixative, it is widely used in creams, anti-inflammatory lotions, skin treatment, healing and ulcers. Distillation of the oleoresin allows for a concentration of more β-caryophyllene.



It is traditionally used for general pain, joint pain and chronic inflammation. 


Neuroprotective effect

Studies indicate neuroinflammatory and neuroprotective action [3] in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and dementia. It also acts against convulsive phenomena [4].


Anxiolytic effect

Its use can provide great potential for anxiety and addiction control in general. β-caryophyllene stimulates specific endocannabinoid receptors [5], which potentially limits addiction disorders. In this way it can be useful in the treatment of abstinence cases. 



Recommended in the treatment of skin diseases and psoriasis.


Side effects

May be potentially irritating if in oleoresin form. Essential oil does not have this characteristic. 


How to use

Its recomended to perform a test on the arm before using it neat. Preferably it must be combined with a carrier oil.
