Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil
Copaiba Essential Oil is also known as Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil.
Wild As The Wind Copaiba Essential Oil is one of the most potent Copaiba Balsam Essential Oils available.
The Beta-Caryophyllene, (BCP), content of the Wild As The Wind Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil is approximately 50%. The BCP content varies dramatically between differing Copaiba Essential Oils and ranges from as low as 25% all the way up to 50%.
The higher the BCP the more effective the Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil is.

Wild As The Wind is one of a very small number of companies selling Copaiba Essential Oil in the UK.
Copaiba Essential Oil Versus Hemp Essential Oil
Copaiba Aromatherapy Oil is very similar to Hemp Essential Oil in many ways, but it is a fraction of the cost.
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil interacts with CB2 receptors found all around the body, but not in the brain.
Hemp Essential Oil interacts with CB1 receptors in the brain as well as CB2 receptors in the body.
Many people report similar benefits from using Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil as they do from using Hemp Essential Oil, but those with complex issues tend to gain more benefit from using Hemp Essential Oil.
Aromatically Copaiba Aromatherapy Oil is a lot less pungent than Hemp Essential Oil, so a lot of people prefer using Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil when taking it internally.
However, not everyone can tolerate taking Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil internally, and some of those than can prefer not to.
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil Versus Cananga Essential Oil
This feedback, (originally submitted via the review section of the Cananga Essential Oil page), vouches for the efficacy of both aromatherapy oils, but defines the subtle differences.
Cananga Essential Oil is a fantastic addition to the ‘Wild’ essential oil collection. It is very helpful for pain relief just like copaibia but with an uplifting mood effect as an added bonus for us.
The pain my wife suffers from is early osteoporosis and a frozen shoulder, I have a stiff hip that manifests after too much physical hard work.
My wife has really appreciated the massage oil, which has really aided her frozen shoulder, either made with 2 drops of copaibia essential oil or cananga essential oil. Both are as equally good as each other.
Also, when taken orally, 2 drops morning and night, we found that the copaibia essential oil is more calming emotionally whereas the cananga essential oil provides more of an up mood.
Thank you, again, Rachel

Just like Cananga Essential Oil, Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil interacts with our Endocannabinoid system, pairing itself with the CB2 receptors located in our peripheral organs and immune system, particularly in the digestive track.
By contrast Hemp Essential Oil also interfaces with CB1 receptors which are mainly in the brain.
Nevertheless, Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil has been shown to positively affect mood and psychological conditions, along with a long list of other benefits. The real beauty of this aromatherapy oil is that it is so mild it is suitable for use with babies.

Copaiba Balsam Essential oil Myths
Copaiba Aromatherapy Oil is often referred to as a magnifier or ‘driver’. It is thought that Copaiba Essential Oil will enhance the properties of other essential oils when they are used together. But, this is true of all essential oils. The potency of a blend of essential oils will always be more intense than the sum of it’s parts.
So, combining Copaiba Essential Oil with Sandalwood Essential Oil or Helichrysum Essential Oil may mean that a lesser amount of these expensive oils will be needed when compared to the larger amount required of these aromatherapy oils to achieve the same effect when they are being used on their own.
I take this daily and is the most incredible mood stabilizer amongst many other things!
I swear by your essential oils (and face oil No. 2). I have resolved all the issues with my baby using essential oils after none of the medications worked. If anything they made things worse. Only Copaiba helped my baby sleep. Nothing else worked.
Copaiba Essential Oil Directions For Use
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil, like Hemp Essential Oil, can be taken internally to interact with our Endocannabinoid system.
However, as mentioned, some people do not tolerate taking essential oils internally very well, and others prefer not to.
For this reason, the topical application of Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil is advised as the first course of action.
The use of Organic Coconut Oil is recommended as your carrier oil if you decide to take Copaiba internally. Organic Coconut Oil contains MCT, which makes the Copaiba Essential Oil more bioavailable.
DO NOT take Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil with Organic Coconut Oil internally if you have had your Gall Bladder removed, or if you have Gall Bladder or Liver issues. If you are unsure if you have Gall Bladder or Liver issues please consult your healthcare provider.
The adult dosage for Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil when taken internally is one or two drops with a heaped teaspoon of Coconut Oil in the morning followed by one or two drops with Coconut Oil in the evening.
However, everyone is different, so there’s no standard dosage for everyone. It’s always advisable to start out using a low dose of Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil and increase until you find the dosage which works for you.
*Do not exceed 6 drops of Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil per day, and always use it diluted with a carrier oil. If using other essential oils or products containing essential oils it’s important to avoid using more than 12 drops of varying essential oils per day. Less is definitely more when using essential oils!
**Do not heat the Coconut Oil, simply scoop it out of the jar, (it’s usually solid at room temperature in the UK). Then drop the Copaiba Essential Oil on to it and place the combined oils into your mouth.
Allow the Coconut Oil to melt and make it’s way around your mouth… under your tongue and along your gums etc.
Digestion starts in the mouth, and many of the benefits of these two combined oils will be absorbed under your tongue and via your gums etc.
Do not swish as you do not want to disturb plaque.
After about two minutes simply swallow the oil mix.
***Heating cold pressed oils damages the nutrient content.
****Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil is one of several viscous oils that are quite thick and slow running when cold. This is because Copaiba Balsam is an aromatherapy oil made from a resin, like Benzoin Essential Oil and Myrrh Essential Oil etc.
Because of this it can be difficult to get your Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil to pour / drop out of the bottle when it’s cold. To get the oil moving quicker, and to make it flow more easily through the dropper, just roll the bottle vigorously between your hands, whilst the lid is on, to warm the oil up a little.
When you feel the temperature of the bottle has increased you can try to pour the oil out through the dropper again. If the essential oil is warm enough it will hopefully pour properly.
However, most of us end up removing the plastic dropper insert from the bottle as pouring a small amount from the bottle unimpeded by the dropper insert is the most efficient method.
Others pre-dilute their Copaiba Essential Oil in Coconut Oil and simply scoop the pre-blended oil from the jar morning and evening. Organic Coconut Oil tends to be sold in a glass jar. This mean you can stand it in warm water until it melts without worrying about releasing toxins from a plastic container.
20 drops of essential oil is roughly equivalent to 1ml of essential oil.
For a 1% dilution in 100ml of carrier oil simply add 20 drops of Copaiba Essential Oil.
If you have a 200ml jar of Coconut Oil then simply add 40 drops, and so on and so forth.
For a 2% dilution in 100ml of carrier oil just add 40 drops… and 80 drops to 200ml of Coconut Oil etc.
Do NOT microwave your essential oils or carrier oils or place them in boiling water.
Organic Coconut Oil bought from an independent health shop is best, but most supermarkets have Organic Coconut Oil sold in glass jars too.
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil For External Use
Copaiba Essential Oil can also be applied topically after it has been properly diluted.
Adults can use varying dilutions and should experiment to find their optimal dilution for best results. It’s recommended you start by applying a 1% dilution to the affected area.
This can be increased incrementally up to a maximum of a 5% dilution, or until you find the optimal dilution for you as an individual, whether this be a 2%, 3%, 4% or 5% dilution. (We are all different.)
Properly diluted essential oils enter the bloodstream of the body very quickly and have an almost immediate effect.
Whether taken internally or applied topically your Copaiba Essential Oil, when properly blended with your chosen carrier oil, will find it’s way into your body to be employed where it is needed most.
Copaiba Essential Oil For Emotional Support
If you are using Copaiba Essential Oil for emotional support, apply your diluted oil to chest and neck, all the way up to your chin and hairline. Make sure you massage the oil in well to the area beneath your ears as this is where your Vagus Nerve is closest to the surface of the skin. This will have a very profound soothing effect.
Also apply it to your pulse points on your wrists.
Copaiba Essential Oil For Physical Support
If you are using Copaiba Essential Oil for inflammatory conditions, then simply apply where needed.
*Carrier oils are also known as base oils.
Should I Take Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil Internally Or Externally?
Adults are free to choose how to use Copaiba Essential Oil based on their personal preference. If you would prefer to apply Copaiba topically, then this is recommended.
However, if you don’t get the desired results from experimenting with different dilutions then may be it’s time to switch the way you are using your Copaiba Oil?
If you are willing to experiment with taking your Copaiba Essential Oil orally, then please follow the directions closely, and monitor yourself to see how you feel during and after.
If you still don’t receive all of the benefits you are hoping for then it may be time to graduate to Hemp Essential Oil…?
Copaiba Essential Oil Is Suitable For Children & Babies

Copaiba Essential Oils Cautions
