Copaiba essential oil is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree, which grows over 100 feet tall in tropical South America. Copaiba is widely used in soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes and has been an integral component in traditional Brazilian health practices.

Like Black Pepper essential oil, Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings when ingested and promotes a clear, smooth complexion when applied topically. When taken internally, Copaiba essential oil also supports cardiovascular, immune, digestive, and nervous system health.* It helps support a healthy inflammatory response.* Copaiba can be applied directly to the mouth to cleanse and soothe the gums and oral cavity.

Though Copaiba doesn’t contain psychoactive cannabinoids, the main component, β-caryophyllene (BCP), may be neuroprotective and may have cardiovascular and immune benefits when consumed.* It’s also a powerful antioxidant.* Copaiba contains the highest levels of BCP among currently known essential oils.

An irregular cannabinoid and sesquiterpene, BCP selectively binds to CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS)—a signaling and regulating system comprised of enzymes, receptor sites throughout the body, and endocannabinoids produced by the body. The ECS acts as a major regulator of human health. The BCP in Copaiba binds to CB2 receptors to aid healthy immune and inflammatory responses.* It also influences multiple signaling pathways to promote healthy liver, digestive, kidney, heart, and brain function, supporting general well-being.*
