dōTERRA’s New Copaiba

Hey y’all!! I hope you are listening closely, I have some very good news!

As I write this, the UPS man just dropped of my first bottle of Copaiba! I was so excited that I, of course, cracked it open and tried a drop. It is woodsy, earthy and mild. I can’t wait to share this with my friends and family and see how it can help each of them!

The reviews and testimonies from all over are starting to pour in and my heart is so excited to see how many people it can help. The great news is that this oil is available now, just click the “shop” tab here. The cost is also amazing, I have heard several people state that they have now opted to use this Copaiba oil for about $35 a month versus the Cannabis oil they were using for about $400 a month! So if you know anyone who has thought about using, or currently uses, a cannabis oil read along and see if Copaiba may be helpful (after all, it is most likely purer and safer).

COPAIBA

(Copaifera reticulata, officinalis, coriacea, and langsdorffii)

 

Copaiba Oil Summery

Copaiba is an essential oil derived from the resin of the copaiba trees in Brazil. These trees are found in Tropical South America and are known to grow more than 100 feet tall! The natives there have used the oil  of the copaiba trees (derived from the trees resin) in their traditional health practices since the 16th century. Our oil is a special blend of 4 trees from the Copaiba species.

Due to the chemical make-up, Copaiba may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits.* This unique and amazing oil can also be helpful for supporting the digestive, nervous and respiratory systems!* Talk about a one-stop shop!

 

What Makes Copaiba so special?

(Copaiba V. Cannabis)

Here is the coolest part about Copaiba: it works with the cannabinoid (CB) receptors in the brain, much like cannabis but without any psychoactive effects!

The body has a system know as an Endocannabinoid (EC) system that helps to relax the body and respond to inflammation. In this system we have two (known) Cannabinoid Receptors that are activated by our bodies natural chemicals or outside sources. These receptors are aptly named CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptor is know for effecting the nerve cells in the brain while CB2 primarily effects the immune system and blood cells.

The “runner’s high” is a perfect example of this EC system in use. Our bodies release chemicals that prompt our CB receptors to act. The chemicals that interact with CB1 cause the euphoria associated with the rewards pathways in our brain. The chemicals that interact with CB2 help to reduce the inflammation in our bodies and soothe achy muscles.

Now outside chemicals can interact with these receptors the same way as our natural chemicals can. For instance, Cannabis oil has 3 key components that interact with our CB receptors.  Cannabis oil has CBD, THC and BCP (see the chart below for full names). Of these 3 chemicals only one does not cause hallucinogenic effects, and that is BCP. The CB1 receptor (that is responsible for the psychoactive effects on the brain) does not interact with BCP! Our CB2 receptors (the ones responsible for muscle relaxation and proper immune responce) processes and uses the BCP. This means that our bodies can accept the benefits of BCP without causing any of the psychoactive effects of THC or CBD!

CBD v. THC. v. BCP

 

Cannabis oil is prized for it’s therapeutic benefits that are derived from these chemicals. As we all know, there is much debate about Cannabis oil (or Medical Marijuana) because of the Psychoactive effects (and it is not yet legal everywhere). Here is the twist! The main component of Copaiba is beta-caryophyllene (BCP). Yes! One of the same natural chemical that Cannabis oil is used for; the one that does not cause any phychoactive effects! Now get this! It is in even higher concentrates in Copaiba oil!!

So Copaiba not only has the BCP that will help our bodies relax, support our immune system and proper response to inflammation, but it can do it without any debate about safety or legalities.

 

And if you are wondering, no. It will not cause you to fail any drug tests, because it is not a drug. And yes, it is legal everywhere, because it is not a drug! Are you realizing how amazing this oil is now?!

 

How It’s Extracted

It is important that each oil is extracted in a way that matches the plant, so you get the purest and most potent oils. Copaiba oil is extracted through steam distillation. Watch this short clip to learn a little more about the whole process.

What can I use Copaiba oil for?

  1. By taking a capsule of 2 drops of Copaiba and 2 drops of Frankincense each day, fellow Wellness advocates and friends have found “Reduced discomfort. Reduced head tension. Sleeping solidly. Reduced anxious feelings. Increased milk supply (for [the] nursing mamas) and so much more.” –Essentially Obsessed
  2. Melody Watts shared that by taking a full capsule twice a day “Copaiba took away [her] son’s Tics in 24 hours”!
  3. This oil is very calming to the nervous system* and may then be used internally to help relax muscles or relieve tension. Start by trying 1-2 drops taken under the tongue each day and adjust for your personal need. This oil is musky, so you may prefer to take it in a capsule or blend it into coffee or chai tea.
  4. Create a blend using Fractionated Coconut Oil, Copaiba and any of the following oils for a warm and tension melting massage: Lemongrass, Cedarwood, Frankincense, or AromaTouch Blend.
  5. Apply directly to skin, or add to toner to help reduce blemishes.
  6. Make a tea with a drop of oil, warm water and honey. Copaiba has an earthy scent that is calming and grounding.
  7. Use Copiaba internally to take advantage of the antioxidants—the substance that stops potential damage to your cells from oxidation.*
  8. Add a drop to a warm bath or your body wash to help relieve tension and support relaxation.
  9. Breathe it in throughout the day to soothe emotions and neurological function.
  10. Blend with Peppermint to help support digestion at meal time. It can be taken internally or massaged clockwise over the belly.
