Difference between Copaíba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil and Distilled Copaíba Essential Oil

Difference between Copaíba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil and Distilled Copaíba Essential Oil


Many people do not know the difference between Copaíba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil and Distilled Copaíba Essential Oil. Copaíba Balsam contains in its composition a percentage of Balsam that is removed when it goes through distillation to obtain pure essential oil.
In this way, Copaíba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil is “richer” in chemical constituents and therefore, therapeutically more comprehensive.

The Copaiba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil produced and extracted in the trunk is the product of the detoxification of the plant organism and works as a defense of the plant against animals, fungi and bacteria.

The therapeutic benefits present in Copaiba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil are provided by dipertenes, such as, copaiferous acid, copalic acid, calavenic acid and colavenol, which are secondary metabolites produced by plants.

In addition, the sesquiterpene found in the essential oil, β-cariophylene, is responsible for the curative properties such as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, immunomodulatory and anti fungal actions. Sesquiterpenes are also responsible for the aroma of Copaíba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil and for its antiviral and antiulcerative properties.

Copaiba Balsam Virgin Essential Oil (Copaifera officinalis) is a traditional remedy from the South American rain forests. The resin is harvested from wild trees by tapping (similar to the way rubber trees are tapped) and then distilled to produce the essential oil. Note: This oil is produced by distilling copaiba resin. This is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil produced using wild-crafted plants and traditional methods from Brazil, and is obtained from the resin.

Copaiba has a friendly, sweet aroma that encourages easy breathing. The balsam and its essential oil are used as fixatives in soap perfumes and fragrances. Each oil is available in 10 and 30 ml- packaged in amber glass bottle with euro style dropper cap. Each oil is GC/MS tested to ensure 100% certified pure therapeutic grade quality.
