What is inflammation? It’s defined as the state of being inflamed; specifically a condition of some part of the body that is a reaction to injury, infection, irritation, etc., and is characterized by varied combinations of redness, pain, heat, swelling, and loss of function.
One natural way to support your health is with the Essential Oil called Copaiba. Copaiba oil is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow upwards of more than 100 feet and can be found in tropical South America. Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilized in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil.
Besides helping with inflammation, Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and it can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion. Taken internally, various Essential Oil companies state that Copaiba oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.* It’s a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.*
How do you take it? Just one drop a day internally. Or put into a diffuser. Or apply topically combined with a carrier oil for sensitivity.
Essential Oils do not simply mask symptoms as synthetically created products do. They pass through cell membranes to address the root causes of issues on a cellular level.
Many blogs make the statement that Copaiba Essential Oil is the most powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient on the planet! It is unique in its composition, micro-nutrients and properties. Although it is very strongly anti inflammatory, it is still safe to be taken internally. Just one drop a day will be highly beneficial. Never overdose internally on Essential Oils. They are very powerful and potent. They can also be diffused. I usually put about 4 drops of oil into my diffuser. When you breathe in an Essential Oil, it gets into every cell of your body!
Many people think Copaiba will get you “high” like a cannabinoid. However, Copaiba does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids. There are three types of Cannabinoids. Copaiba oil contains the type of cannabinoids which are called beta-caryophyllene. You might see this referred to as BCD. Betacarophyllen, or BCD, does not cause illusion effects. Copaiba’s main component caryophyllene may even be neuroprotective.*
Be careful where you purchase your Essential Oils. You want to make sure you get them from a trusted company, not from some stranger on the Internet. Since the bottles have removable tops, you want to make sure they have not been tampered with. Research the different companies to see what type of testing they do.
