Copaiba Essential Oil


Copaiba Essential Oil is derived from the vacuum distillation of the gum resin tapped from the large Copaiba tree, native to the Amazon.


To extract the resin, a hole is drilled / tapped into the copaiba tree, which can grow anywhere from 15-30 meters high. This sustainable rainforest resource can be harvested without affecting the health of the tree or the rainforest in which it grows. The extracted liquid resin found within the tree, undergoes a double vacuumed distillation to separate off the precious aromatic oil, making it more soluble, and easier to use.


The woody and balsamic scent of this essential oil has been used by the natives of Amazonia for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory virtues, as well as being sought after in fine perfumery since the 16th century.




• Copaiba Essential Oil is high in the compound beta-caryophyllene, which is an anti-inflammatory compound. According to the Tisserand Institute ‘copaiba is one of the safest oils to use on the skin. It can be very useful in healing, soothing irritation and treating chronic skin disease.’(Tisserland Institute 2020) particularly when applied topically to the skin.
