  Copaiba Balsam
Copaifera officinalis, steam-distilled from resin, Brazil.

Quantity:
 


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.
