Copaiba - the essential oil from the Amazonas Rainforest

Copaiba
(Copaiba reticulata/langsdorfii)
Copaiba, also known as Copal, is is probably one of the only essential oils that is tapped directly from the tree and not distilled. It's approved as a food additive in the U.S. and has considerable research on its anti-inflammatory benefits. Traditionally it's been used by the curanderos for all types of pain and inflammatory disorders, including stomach ulcers, but also skin disorders and insect bites. In Peru, it's been used as remedy for sore throat, by adding 3 to 4 drops of Copaiba to some honey. While in Brazil, the locals used it as an antiseptic gargle and expectorant for the respiratory tract, including conditions such as bronchitis.
Some suggested uses:
Apply 3 drops to the back of the neck and temples to relieve head tension.
Add a few drops in your bathwater to soothe tired muscles.
