November Oil of the Month: Copaiba

Known as the CBD of essential oils, Copaiba can support you with sleep, pain and mental/emotional health. It’s anti-inflammatory tenancies are what typically draws the comparison to CBD. In fact, it contains large amounts of beta-caryophyllene, a molecule that interacts with cannabinoid receptors in your skin. This causes skin cells to produce beta-endorphin, one of the happiness hormones.

Regular use of Copaiba lowers inflammation-associated molecules. As a result, many use it to manage pain, heal wounds and uplift their mood.

Additionally, it’s woody, spicy scent makes it a frequent additive to cosmetic products and perfume. Other cosmetic uses include:

  • Add several drops to a warm bath water for a calming aroma.
  • Epsom salt and several drops create a soothing foot bath. 
  • Add to your moisturizer to enhance the appearance of healthy-looking skin.
  • Massage into hands, wrists, and elbows for a soothing and moisturizing effect
