The Apothecary in Inglewood
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil - 5 ml
Copaiba balsam is a subtle, soft, woody oil used in aromatherapy and natural perfuming. Copaiba balsam essential oil is extracted from the resin of the copaiba tree in a process that ensures no trees are destroyed (the tree is tapped similarly to maple trees). The resin that exudes from the tapped hole is then collected to be distilled. Each tree rests for three years between extractions.
Copaiba balsam may be analgesic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. It is known to assist with circulatory, diuretic and expectorant problems, and may help ease intestinal cramps and spasms, muscular pain or varicose veins. Emotionally, copaiba balsam is calming and may help promote general mental wellness.
