Copaiba Essential Oil
I started adding Copaiba Essential oil to my daily routine a few months ago. When I heard about the calming benefits, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! I have always been a nervous, somewhat anxious person, and a little drop of this magic, really helps chill me out! Typically, I will put 1-2 drops under my tongue, as needed for support. It’s an almost instant feeling of relief, not only does it calm me down, but it grounds me, and gives me motivation to get through the day.
What is Copaiba
So, what is Copaiba? According to DoTerra, “copaiba is extracted from copaiba trees in the Amazon rainforest. The essential oil is steam distilled from the copaiba oleoresin, a substance made up of resin and essential oils. The collection process of the oleoresin is unique among essential oils—it is tapped from the tree in a similar way to how maple trees are for their syrup. The oleoresin is then steam distilled to produce the essential oil.”
Copaiba vs. CBD oil
With that being said; this oil has amazing benefits similar to CBD oil. In comparison, copaiba is much less expensive, and is not extracted from the cannabis plant. You can be sure that the oil is 100% free of THC.
THC comes from the cannabis plant. THC is what causes the “high” as we know it, and is illegal in over half of the United States.
CBD oil comes from hemp plants, and sometimes contains trace amounts of THC. CBD is now legal in all 50 states. It does not make you high, but it has been proven to help with neurological issues, pain and more by indirectly interacting with CB2 receptors in the body.
BCP, Beta-caryophyllene, is a chemical similar to cannabinoids, found in cannabis, and it interacts directly with CB2 receptors. BCP is also found in Copaiba, and along with many of the other properties of the oil, provides a safe, effective way to promote multiple benefits throughout the body.
