•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.
