Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil – Wildcrafted
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil (Copaifera langsdorfii) from Brazil is Wildcrafted Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the resin of the leguminous trees.
The crude resin of Copaiba Balsam trees is sustainably harvested in the rainforests of Brazil and then steam distilled to make this phenomenal essential oil. This viscous liquid appears dark when exposed to light and has a pungent, woody scent. Amazonian indigenous peoples used Copaiba resin in a variety of ways, especially for skin conditions. It was also used as an ointment to treat various diseases by the natives of northern and Brazil. Today Copaiba is used mostly for its calming and soothing qualities as well as its seemingly uncanny ability to ease the mind.
Like all of our Artisan Aromatics essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends, this oil has been carefully selected for its therapeutic quality. Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.
Aromatherapists have cited numerous therapeutic properties for Copaiba Balsam essential oil, such as soothing skin, but this oil is most often used for perfumery.
