The first thing that may come to mind when you see the name, Copaiba, is how in the world do you pronounce it?!? For those struggling with pronunciation, here is a tip – “Ko-pah-ee-bah.”
Copaiba trees are considerably branched and grow from 15-30 m high. They produce many small, white flowers on long panicles and small fruit pods with 2-4 seeds inside. There are 35 species of Copaifera, found mainly in tropical South America (particularly in Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Guyana, Colombia, Peru, and Venezuela). Several different species are used as traditional medicines interchangeably: C. langsdorffii is found mostly in the cerrados of central Brazil, C. reticulata is indigenous to the Amazon region, and C. officinalis occurs widely throughout South America, including the Amazon. All three varieties are used interchangeably.
Copaiba essential oil may promote wellness, and can be an important part of a daily health regimen*. This oil includes the naturally occurring constituents beta-caryophyllene and alpha-humulene.
How to Use Copaiba Essential Oil:
- Dietary Supplement: Put 2 drops in a capsule. Take three times daily as needed.

We are limited in what we can say in public about how to use Copaiba Essential Oil, but encourage you to research the naturally occurring constituents beta-caryophyllene and alpha-humulene for yourself and see how powerful nature is in supporting the health and wellness of the body.
