Copaiba is a great oil and it is now included in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit
In July 2009, when Copaiba was introduced to Young Living members, the VP of Research held a conference call to talk about its many uses. And now you will have this precious essential oil when you purchase your Premium Starter kit.
From the heart of the Amazon jungles of Brazil, copaiba oleo resin is tapped directly from the tree.
A hole is drilled into the trunk of the 50 to 80- feet tall tree and out will pour this liquid resin. The resin is then vacuum distilled, using no water, no heat, only vacuum pressure to separate off the precious essential aromatic oil. Brazilian tribal natives harvest and process the Copaiba sold through Young Living.
Sold in Amazonian pharmacies and used for nearly 800 years in folk medicine, Copaiba was also listed in the US Pharmacopeia from 1820 to 1910 for topical and oral uses and is still on the FDA GRAS list (Generally Regarded as Safe).
Earth Kosher Certified
Young Living Copaiba is kosher-certified meaning that a product is fit to use in any application in a manner that conforms to the kosher laws rooted in Biblical and Rabbinic traditions.

Copaiba is the highest in beta-caryophyllene.
Beta-caryophyllene is an anti-inflammatory compound.
Beta-caryophyllene is also found in Helichrysum at between 8 and 12%, while Copaiba contains 50% beta-car.
Clove oil contains 6-8% beta-caryophyllene in comparison.
Copaiba essential oil may promote wellness, and can be an important part of a daily health regimen. This oil includes the naturally occurring constituents beta-caryophyllene and alpha-humulene, and can be mixed with honey and warm water for a warming, essential oil-infused tea.
Marc Schreuder said on the conference call – that Copaiba was Helichrysum on steroids. He has been studying Copaiba for eight years and says it is his number one favorite oil with Frankincense coming in at number 2. He also says that combining Copaiba and Frankincense would give you the highest spiritual and emotional oil blend. Just like sandalwood is considered an excellent emotional supportive oil, Copaiba is six times better and Marc calls Copaiba, Sandalwood on steroids due to its high sesquiterpene content. He also likes Copaiba mixed with a little peppermint for using after working or playing hard and soothing your muscles.
It is not really a diffusing oil and this aromatic treasure is currently found in Young Living’s Deep Relief and Breathe Again Roll-on.
