Co-pay-ee-ba. Mispronounced and misunderstood. This oil is AH-mazing! If you are from Brazil then you KNOW the importance of this plant. Often called the "cure all" this plant lends wonderful properties to combat inflammation. Almost all causes of disease start with inflammation. So you must keep inflammation down or at bay. That is why we eat right and move your body daily.
The gum resin tapped from the this tree grown in Brazil is steam distilled to produce this essential oil, which is known for its high levels of beta-caryophyllene and a sweet and mild aroma.
This oil has traditionally been used in native teas to aid in soothing digestive discomforts. This oil also has helped regulate people’s natural immune response. This essential oil contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene: 55 percent. This is the highest of any known essential oil! What's that mean? You NEED this!
You’ll be hard-pressed to find this true essential oil anywhere in the United States. Other companies do sell this “oil” that contains the entire resin or is a distilled form of the leaf. Unfortunately these products don’t contain the high amounts of beta caryophyllene that is in the Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ essential oil. That's why it works and people return for bottle after bottle of it.
Apply this oil topically to aid the body's natural response to irritation and injury. MIx with lotion or massage oil and rub into the injured or irritated area. You can apply directly to your feet to boost your body's naturals fighting power.
Dental surgery? You NEED this. Teething? They NEED this. Injuries, boo boos and chronic ouchies need this.
Take as a dietary supplement to aid digestion. So helpful for inflammatory issues to if you have an irritated gut, you need this. Add a few drops to an empty vegetable capsule and swallow. Or mix this oil with honey and warm water to create a tea. You want this inside you whether applied on the skin or ingest. I don't like to waste mine in a diffuser machine so I save it for my body. Any person with a chronic inflammatory condition should try this oil.
