Copaiba is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow upwards of more than 30 metres. Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilised in traditional health practices by the natives of north and north-eastern Brazil. Similar to Black Pepper essential oil, Copaiba is soothing and calming to the emotions, and can also be applied topically combined with a carrier oil to promote the appearance of a clear, smooth complexion & reduce the appearance of blemishes. Copaiba essential oil is commonly used in skincare products, including soaps, creams, lotions and perfumes.
Copaiba is known as the Oil of Unveiling and “Copaiba invites individuals to connect with their past. It offers a deep intertwining energy that links experience to experience to unveil the deeper meaning and messages showing up in one’s life. Copaiba respects the sacred sheltered within until it is ready to emerge into the light of consciousness. It then invites individuals to become thoughtfully aware of the shadow aspects of themselves and discover who they really are.
Individuals in need of Copaiba often find that vulnerable self-awareness work reveals unresolved pain in hidden recesses of their heart, mind, and body … Copaiba imparts that it is only through this divine unveiling that individuals can fully accept the magnificence of what they really are and make peace with the past.”#
