Copaiba essential oil is relatively new to me. It was released at the 2017 doTERRA Global Convention. The exciting thing about Copaiba is it contains healthy cannabinoids and it can do so much!!! There are 3 main cannabinoids derived from plants: CBD, THC, and BCP. CBD oil is a cannabis oil found in Copaiba. Cannabis doesn’t just mean marijuana or hemp.
Copaiba essential oil is derived from steam distillation from the resin of the copaiba tree bark in tropical Central & South America (the Amazon).1 The Copaiba tree can grow to 100 feet tall (30 meters). Our doTERRA Copaiba is a blend of four different types of Copaiba oils.
“Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes. Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilized in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil.”2 People have used the Copaiba resins for newborn babies and wounds on soldiers.3
Copaiba is similar to Black Pepper essential oil in many ways. Copaiba has similar emotional benefits to Black Pepper where it can help soothe anxious feelings. Copaiba can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion.
It can be taken internally to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, gastrointestinal tract, colon, urinary, nervous, and respiratory systems.*
Copaiba contains cannabinoids but it does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids. The main cannabinoid component is beta-caryophyllene (BCP) which studies show can be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits.* BCP is great because it does not interact with CB1 receptors. That means it won’t make us have a ‘drug high.’ It’s a cannabinoid that has influential effects on CB2 receptors and a host of promising therapeutic benefits. CB2 receptors help with your endocrine system and immune system.
Endocannabinoild System: Endocannabinoids and the receptors that they communicate with to induce physiological responses are found all throughout the body. Your brain, vital organs, immune cells, and even connective tissue contain endocannabinoid receptors, which are tasked with maintaining the stability of our body’s internal processes while dealing with fluctuations in the external environment. Immune response, inflammatory response, memory, and even appetite are influenced by these receptors. They are a vital link between the brain and the rest of the body, coordinating communication by different cell types.4 The CB2 receptor helps with calming and relaxing too but mostly through their ability to regulate inflammation.
Copaiba is also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.*
Copaiba is more than just Caryophyllene.5 To get the most benefits out of Copaiba, you have to understand Copaiba oil as a whole. The other half of Copaiba that is not caryophyllene has chemicals such as copaene, bergamotene, and humulene. Research shows these chemical constituents have ability to boost immunity and support healthy inflammatory responses.
The excitement with the Cannibinoids is that people think that they have found a secret magic bullet. They think it does everything for your body and that you will magically find relief to everything. I agree with Dr. David Hill that there is nothing out there in the world that will fix everything for us passively. We have to be responsible for our health at all levels all the time. Mentally we have to accept the benefits of foods and medicine into our body.
Copaiba blends well with Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Frankincense, or Ylang Ylang.
Systemic Support: Add 1 to 2 drops of Copaiba oil to water, juice, or tea to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory system.*6
Nervous System: Take internally to help soothe and calm the nervous system.* Also, massage Copaiba mixed with Siberian Fir, Frankincense, Patchouli along the spine.12
“There is evidence to suggest that topical application of Copaiba may have biological activity in supporting health at the cellular level and in tissue remodeling.” Dr. David Hill17
Muscles & Aches: 6 drops Frankincense, 6 drops Marjoram (or Oregano), 6 drops Lemongrass, 2 drops of Copaiba. Take internally or dilute with Fractionated Coconut oil and rub on topically.20
Menstrual Cramps: Dilute Fractionated Coconut oil and rub on lower abs. Copaiba helps with spasms and circulation21
Head and Neck Tensions: Apply to temples, forehead, and or take in a capsule.
Copaiba the oil of unveiling. According to the Emotions & Essential Oils, the negative emotions Copaiba oil helps to shift are as follows: Shameful, guilty, regretful, self-loathing, less than, unworthy, suppressed emotions, rebelling
The positive properties we can incorporate are the following: Patient, empathetic, kind, tolerant, fidelity, calm, intimate, sexual desire, resilient, cooperative, committed.
Unveiling isn’t so we can see all the weaknesses and awful things about ourselves. It is about finding opportunities to change. It allows us to see what we don’t want to see so we can recognize some human weaknesses within that can now be changed. What we find will not be as bad as we may think. It helps us change false beliefs and promptly change our outcome.
Some surprising things we find when we reveal our root beliefs which harms us:
- I am important when I am busy or stressed (because of my lack of self love, self awareness and self respect)
- I need to be needed because it makes me feel important (because of my lack of self love, self awareness and self respect)
- I don’t want to let go of control because I don’t really trust God/Universe/Divine Power (have a hard time allowing others to help and do their way)
- I am jealous of rich, successful, happy people because they have some secret I don’t know about (because of my lack of self love, self awareness and self respect)
- I need to be poor, sick, troubled etc. to be important (because of my lack of self love, self awareness and self respect)
Relaxing & Calming: Add to your favorite calming diffuser blends and smell. When we are calm, our blood pressure is more balanced.
Copaiba helps you rebuild from the ground up. You can honor yourself and be kind to yourself now as you reestablish self love, self awareness and self respect. This will require you to have an honest look back and see patterns in your behavior and results of your life. With eyes to see now, you will recognize areas you can change so you can more fully find happiness. Happiness attracts more happiness. It drives creativity, productivity and success. Happiness can be achieved through gratitude that you are a Child of God.
Copaiba helps clear debris and reconnect things inside so we are reminded of the great truth that we are Children of God. This means you are loved, you have power within you can tap into, you are good enough, you have all you need for your purpose, you are protected and provided for. Knowing that helps you be ok to be vulnerable. This allows you to stop blaming (health, weight, spouse, kids, situation, time, finances etc.) and helps you own your decisions, actions, feelings and beliefs. Stop running. Face the real issues. God doesn’t make rubbish so your negative beliefs about yourself is not true.
Now you’ve faced your self and dug deeper, you’ll find deeper meaning in your life’s purpose. Happiness isn’t just a good feeling that you did some good today–box checked. It is a power and energy that gets you up in the morning. Happiness is a sense of peace and connection and deep fulfillment. Connection is knowing that you have teams of people and angels collaborating with you on this path you’re on. If you feel alone, and unsupported or unsuccessful then this is the oil for you. It is a deep house cleaning of mind, body and spirit.
Another way to think about Copaiba is it is to think of it as the Divine Clarity Oil. Copaiba helps you have wisdom beyond our mortal perceptions of life. I’ve learned that I can and asked to serve in my own way. I learned that I need to do certain things and proactively partner with God to create action plans to get there. Like a good servant or steward, I stick to what I am suppose to do and not get distracted. When I am distracted, my body, my situation tells me to change.
