  Copaiba Balsam (no ratings yet)
Copaifera officinalis, steam-distilled from resin, Brazil
•Resinous, Steam Distilled from Raw Resin
•Warm, welcoming aroma reminiscent of Vanilla
•Add to respiratory or inflammatory blends
•Avoid use on broken skin, can cause sensitization
•Non-toxic and non-irritating at normal dilutions


We had experienced the raw Copaiba resin in the past, and in total honesty were unimpressed. But a client asked us to source the essential oil extracted from the raw resin...and we fell in love. Copaiba has touches of the resinous tang of Cistus, but offers a warmer, softly honeyed note. Reminiscent of vanilla, with more depth this is a lovely autumnal scent…warm and welcoming. Unlike most oils extracted from resins, it is a heart note, rather than a base note…not terribly long lasting.

Therapeutically, Copaiba, like many of the other resins, is said to be useful for bronchial and pulmonary infections and/or inflammation. It might make a warming addition to any respiratory blends. It is also said to aid in lymphatic circulation. Copaiba might be a useful and inexpensive extender for Cistus Essential Oil for a lymph drainage blend.

WARNINGS: Avoid use on broken skin since Copaiba has not been tested, and its sensitization potential remains to be established. Non-irritating and non-toxic at normal dilutions. Suspected to be less sensitizing than the crude resin.

**For other possible oils to avoid, please see our Contraindications page.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
