Copaiba

Copaiba Essential Oil is most exciting as it’s an extremely versatile oil and there are many ways to incorporate it into your life…

1 – Keep your skin clear and clean while reducing the appearance of blemishes by adding Copaiba to your toner or by applying it directly to skin before applying moisturizer.

2 – Copaiba blends well with Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Frankincense, or Ylang Ylang. Use any of these oils that appeal to you and create your own personal fragrance in a roller bottle. (Fill the rest of the bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil.)

3 – Most of the body can benefit from Copaiba—it supports the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and immune system.* To take advantage of these benefits for any of these systems, add one to two drops to water, juice, or make your own tea by using warm water and honey.

4 – When you’re facing a stressful day ahead or feeling worried, diffusing Copaiba’s woody scent can help calm any anxious feelings you may be experiencing.

5 – Take one to two drops in a veggie capsule to take advantage of the antioxidants—the substance that stops potential damage to your cells from oxidation.*

6 – Use in a calming bath by adding two to three drops to body wash before mixing it in the water.
