Copaiba essential oil | Copaifera officinalis

Traditional use: Copaiba essential oil is widely used in perfumery for its delicate, sweet, resinous aroma, which perfectly enriches fragrance blends. It is worth noting, however, that it is also valued among aromatherapy enthusiasts, as it exhibits a number of health-promoting properties. Copaiba oil resins have been used in folk medicine since the 16th century by indigenous peoples of northern and northeastern Brazil. To this day, this natural resource is primarily known for its antimicrobial properties and the ability to support the immune system. They exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties – preventing the excessive spread of inflammation and counteracting aging processes occurring in body cells. Oil extracted from the resin of Copaifera officinalis trees is often used topically to alleviate a variety of ailments, including skin inflammation, wounds or acne. In doing so, it supports the good condition of the skin, as it moisturizes and softens the skin, providing it with a healthy appearance. In addition, it has a beneficial effect on the circulatory system, regulates blood pressure, and also protects the liver from harmful factors. In aromatherapy, this oil is often used to mitigate nervous tension, because its deep aroma reduces stress levels and helps to achieve a sense of mental well-being.

Occurrence: Copaifera officinalis is an evergreen, highly branched deciduous tree that usually grows to a height of about 30 meters. Its fruits are pods containing seeds, while resin can be found in the bark of this tree. It is used as a balsam and in the production of essential oil. Naturally, Copaiba is found in South American countries – Bolivia, Brazil and Venezuela. The plant is also grown in the Dominican Republic, Sierra Leone, Trinidad and Tobago as well as Sri Lanka.

Biochemistry: Copaiba essential oil contains a number of chemical compounds, primarily terpenes, the most significant of which are: beta-caryophyllene, alpha-copaene, alpha-bergamotene, alpha-humulene and germacrene. The resin of this tree is also a rich source of copainic acid.

Fun fact: The resin of the Copaifera trees is used in the production of varnishes and biofuel. After proper filtration, Copaiba oil can be used in a diesel engine.

How does Copaiba essential oil | Copaifera officinalis work?

Nervous system protection: Scientific results prove that Copaiba essential oil has neuroprotective properties. The active compounds it contains reduce the abnormal activity of neutrophils and microglia. In this way, they modulate the inflammatory response and prevent damage to the cells of the nervous system. Researchers suggest that these properties may prove beneficial in the case of intense inflammatory reactions accompanying damage to the central nervous system.

Relieves nervous tension: Aromatherapy experts recommend using Copaiba oil to relieve stress. Its fresh, woody scent has a relaxing effect and improves mood. Its effectiveness is evidenced by study results. In participants using the oil, the level of perceived anxiety decreased. A lower level of cortisol (stress hormone) was also observed, as well as a reduction in the intensity of beta frequency brain waves, which are associated with stress and central nervous system excitation.

Helps to regulate the immune system: The traditional medicine of peoples living in Venezuela and Brazil valued Copaiba in wound treatment. Modern scientific research has shown that the compounds present in the essential oil of this plant have antimicrobial properties. They effectively inhibit the growth of many bacteria, including those that cause tooth decay and acne. They have also been proven to exhibit anti-inflammatory effects and can even relieve pain. This is evidenced by test results with people suffering from arthritis pain.

Supports vitality: Like many oils, Copaiba benefits the appearance of the skin. This is because it has an astringent effect and reduces the presence of scars as well as other imperfections. Among other oils, however, it is distinguished by its hepatoprotective properties. The active ingredients of Copaiba essential oil protect liver cells from damage caused by certain substances. In addition, they can lower blood pressure, which is beneficial for people struggling with hypertension.
