Copaiba

Originating from the resin of the Copaiba tree found in South America, doTERRA Copaiba was introduced as a new oil in the fall of 2017. The spicy and woodsy aroma combines well in a blend to personalize your fragrance. It can promote clear and smooth skin, support whole-body wellness, and calm the occasional *anxious feeling.

Known for its soothing and supportive nature, I used a couple drops of Copaiba in a bath to relax my overworked muscles. I enjoy the earthy toned essential oils and Copaiba has become a true favorite.
