Copaiba Fun Facts: Copaiba, pronounced kō-pī-bah or kō-pī-ee-bah, is steam distilled from the oleoresin, which is a mixture of the essential oil and resin of the plant. It is excellent to help calm and soothe muscles and joints. It is offered both in the normal and Vitality line through Young Living. They are the exact same oil inside, but the outside showcases different uses.

~~~~ COPAIBA VS. CBD OIL
Our mind tends to wander and have squirrel moments just about every other minute. We often feel out of control and sometimes at dis-ease. Copaiba to the rescue! Copaiba is technically a resin. Young Living states about this gem, "Known for its gentle, woodsy aroma, Copaiba essential oil is a product of steam distilling the gum resin tapped from the Brazilian Copaifera reticulata tree. With high levels of beta-caryophyllene and a uniquely sweet aromatic profile, Copaiba oil helps create a relaxing atmosphere when diffused or applied topically."
Did you catch that? High levels of beta-caryophyllene. While Young Living cannot state an oil does this or that from a medicinal or even therapeutic standpoint, they do give you very very important crumbs that are more important that you might think. Any time you see them call out a seemingly chemistry type term, go ahead and look that up. Notice anything interesting? Cannabis contains around 30% caryophyllene (aka beta-caryophyllene). Copaiba contains upwards of 40-70%!! So when your friends ask you if YL carries CBD oil (aka hemp oil) you can say, no, we carry something similar but different and you use way less. Amazing!
