All About … Copaiba Essential Oil

Copaiba is made from the oilresin tapped from the copaiba tree native to Brazil and is known for its highest amounts of beta-caryophyllene compound, 55%. This is the highest of any known essential oil! It supports the immune, respiratory, muscular, and skeletal systems, as well as skin care. It is generally useful to support overall wellness for all body ages.

Copaiba acts as a magnifying oil, meaning that when paired with another essential oil, it heightens the properties of that oil.  Finally, Copaiba has a calming, soothing, and grounding effect on emotions. Try diffusing along with Frankincense and Lavender as you’re winding down from a hectic or stressful day.



Young Living Copaiba essential oil comes from the Young Living farm in Guayaquil, Ecuador. There are nearly 2,000 acres of farmland that have a year-round growing season. This farm has the largest state-of-the-art distillery in South America. Copaiba is harvested by tapping the heartwood in the same way maple is tapped to make syrup. The resin collected is then steam distilled, sealed.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find real copaiba essential oil anywhere in the United States. It’s true, other companies sell copaiba “oil” that contains the entire resin or is a distilled form of the leaf. Unfortunately these products don’t contain the high amounts of beta caryophyllene that is in the Young Living Therapeutic Grade copaiba essential oil.

You probably have already tried copaiba in the Deep Relief Roll-On, Stress Away essential oil and Roll-On, Progessence Plus essential oil, and Breath Again Roll-On blends. You can also find copaiba in the Copaiba Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner as well as in the ART Beauty Masque.
