I have this copaiba balsam essential oil in a blend for inflammation (along with ginger, frankincense, hops, roman chamomile, and helichrysum in carrier oil) right now because the hubby irritated his knee and I personally use it for a twinge in my lower back.  We’re in love with the blend!  The way the scent changes as it’s exposed to air never fails to surprise me  . . . in a GOOD way.  Be careful with that or it will overpower your blend.

Due to it’s benefits for skin, Copaiba Balsam is an excellent addition to your personal skin care.  I add it (at 1% or less) as an extra protection against the environmental detriments we face daily.

Copaiba Balsam is one that I use when I need extra respiratory support as well.  I will diffuse the pure (a drop or two mixed with other respiratory or immune support oils) or use it topically on my chest and well as massaging the lymph glands in my throat.

Properly diluted, it gives fabulous relief to my tired feet after a long day — I’ve been known to do both my feet and legs to the knees after really long hours on cement.

Copaiba Balsam has also been known to settle occasional tummy upset.  Dilute properly and rub on the tummy.  Personally, I prefer it mixed with ginger for this application.  Separately, both are good.  Together, they’re great!  I mix 2 drops of each in 5mL (one teaspoon) of carrier.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Copaiba Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, there are no known hazards or contraindications.  Copaiba essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Copaiba essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
