Essential Wellness: Copaiba

Powerfully relaxing, Copaiba essential oil comes from a fragrant tropical tree native to South America. Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and supports the cardiovascular, nervous, digestive, immune, and respiratory systems.*

Scientists have recently discovered the many benefits of Copaiba oil. Dr. Hill, doTERRA’s Founding Executive Chief Medical Officer, and Nicole Stevens discuss the high level of beta-caryophyllene contained in doTERRA’s Copaiba essential oil. Why is this component important? When you use Copaiba oil, the beta-caryophyllene interacts with a receptor on the surface of a cell. This interaction creates a chain reaction, which changes the way the molecules inside the cell behave. This causes the DNA and other molecules to be up-regulated, or down-regulated. In other words, doTERRA’s Copaiba essential oil has the ability to offer profound strength and support to the immune and endocrine systems. The potential for doTERRA’s Copaiba oil is almost limitless! For this reason, doTERRA is committed to bringing you the highest quality Copaiba oil possible.



  • Add one to two drops to water, juice, or tea to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory system.*

  • Drop one to two drops under the tongue as part of your daily health regimen.
  • Add a drop to facial moisturizer to help keep skin clear and reduce the appearance of blemishes.



The Copaiba is a large towering tree that grows in tropical rainforests of South America. For hundreds of years, traditional healers in northern Brazil have used copaiba trees for their health benefits. Copaiba essential oil is steam distilled from the resin of the tree.

Copaiba essential oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, nervous, digestive, immune, and respiratory systems.*

doTERRA Copaiba essential oil is sourced in Brazil from four species of copaiba. By harnessing the benefits of the most potent copaiba species, a maximum potency essential oil is obtained. With a pleasant, spicy, and woody aroma, Copaiba can help calm emotions and soothe anxious feelings. It is a wonderful oil to turn to at the end of a stressful day.

Copaiba also has a plethora of benefits when taken internally. The main constituent of Copaiba is Beta-caryophyllene, which is also present in Black Pepper essential oil and helps soothe anxious feelings.* In addition to its emotional benefits, Beta-caryophyllene promotes healthy nervous, cardiovascular, and immune system function.* The oil also contains powerful antioxidants that boost immune health.* Copaiba is a well-loved oil because it relieves discomfort and promotes overall health, supporting people to feel and live their best.

Due to its beautifying effect on the skin, Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetics. To promote a clear, smooth complexion, Copaiba may be combined with Cedarwood and diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil and applied topically.

Diffusing or inhaling Copaiba is deeply relaxing and soothing. Add a few drops to a diffuser for emotional support. For increased cellular support, take internally alone or with Frankincense.* For digestive support at mealtimes, take with Peppermint.*

I am happy to offer you this essential oil for your overall well-being.
