Copaiba Copal Essential Oil

Copaiba Copal 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. The sweet, energizing, woody-balsamic aroma of Copaiba Copal (Copaifera officinalis) is uplifting and refreshes respiratory passages.

Copaiba traditionally has been used in native teas to aid in soothing digestive discomforts, and may support a person’s own natural immune response.† Copaiba essential oil has a uniquely sweet aromatic profile and contains the highest amounts (55%) of beta caryophyllene which has been shown to modulate the body's response to irritation.†

Distillation Extraction Method

A variety of extraction methods are used to create essential oils. These methods include distillation, cold-press, and CO2 extraction. Copaiba Copal essential oil is extracted using the distillation method.

Steam distillation is the most common method of extracting essential oils. Distillation forces the water portion of the plant (hydrosol) apart from the volatile (essential) oil. The essential oil transfers into a cooling chamber. The quality of the resulting oil depends on many factors—including the growth methods of the plant and the process and experience of the distiller.

Each plant yields a different volume of oil during the distillation process depending on its chemical properties. If a particular essential oil retails at a higher price, it is because more plant was required to result in that amount of oil.
