Physical benefits of copaiba essential oil
Copaiba essential oil packs some of the highest anti-inflammatory properties of all the essential oils studied. Copaiba does this by disrupting pro-inflammatory cytokines secretion. In Ecuador and Brazil, where copaiba is harvested, it is believed to amplify the effects of the other essential oils combined with it. Layering this oil on top of or adding it to your other blends is ideal for anyone who has tender meridian alarm points (indicating inflammation in a meridian). It is also recommended for the master Body-Feedback inflammation alarm point.*
As evidenced by copaiba essential oil’s ability to benefit acne and ulcers, this oil supports healthy epithelial tissue regeneration. In addition to skin cells, epithelial tissue lines the hollow areas of the body and many of the endocrine glands. Copaiba stimulates the body and mind by providing cortisol-like properties that energize cells. This oil is prefect for supporting adrenal fatigue and aging because it energizes, prevents inflammation, and targets the brain.*
Copaiba essential oil has a mild aroma and blends easily with other essential oils. Using a few drops of this oil in the morning can help get your day going and adds a pleasant flavor to your favorite morning beverage (as long as manufacturer approves for internal use). It also is easily tolerated with external application; and remember to dilute if you have sensitive skin.*
Emotional benefits of copaiba essential oil
Copaiba, as with other oils high in sesquiterpenes, targets the brain and emotional health. The combination of high sesquiterpenes, high anti-inflammatory properties, and a very mild aroma creates a powerful oil for soothing and cooling heated emotions. Michelle’s favorite application for this oil–to address and soothe stored memories of physical or emotional trauma–is to apply a few drops to tender or deficient divots on the head or scalp. Copaiba oil holds adaptogenic properties, which encourages the body and mind to come to a place of balance and harmony in every situation.*
Test copaiba essential oil to any of the following Body-Feedback areas:
