Let’s talk about copaiba essential oil! I use this oil personally when I have my lower back issues. I started having huge back pains after having my son and tried just about everything to solve the problem. Somethings worked and some took way too long to kick in but I wanted something natural and strong nothing just off the shelf and filled with chemical substances. Some days it hurts a ton so I pair this oil with Panaway and coconut oil and together it helps my lower back significantly. Much better than when I had to use hot and cold. It really gets in there and the smell isn’t strong or awful.
Why do I love this? When I tell someone about an oil they always like to ask me what is the oil? What are the benefits of the oil? Why should they use it? And so many more questions! Which is completely natural to ask so I thought why not put together a simple article that tells you everything you need to know about an oil and this time I am talking about copaiba. So, let’s get started!
What is Copaiba?
Copaiba essential oil is steam distilled from the gum resin of a copaiba tree which is located in Brazil. When distilled it comes out as a pale yellow color. It the most anti-inflammatory oil on earth and it also has antiseptic properties. What is pretty fascinating about this oil is that when it is paired with other essential oils it will magnetize the properties of that other oil. It is most commonly used as a lacquer or varnish, however, there are many health benefits it can be used for. If not used properly it can cause stomach problems when used internally.
