Did you know Copaiba oil is anti-inflammatory and makes your skin HAPPY!? It’s like CBD, in that it contains a terpene called Beta-Caryophyllene. The Beta-Caryophyllene interacts with our bodies cannabinoid receptors, and causes our skin cells to produce stress relieving endorphins.
Copaiba’s (pronounced CO-PIE-E-BUH) medicinal usage dates back to the 16th century in Brazil. Indigenous people used it both orally and topically. Copaiba comes from the Copaiba Tree found in Central and Southern America. There are over 70 species of Copaiba trees. As Copaiba oil is made from tree resin, it is especially lovely. This is because the tree can produce resin year after year without ever being cut down.
Although Copaiba isn’t traditional to my Native culture, when I crossed paths with it I fell in love. I truly believe that culture enriches culture. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with this oil and add it to the creations I love so much.
