It is my honor and privilege tportland_essentialoil_doTERRAo introduce to you Copaiba oil. I want to take a moment to highlight this oil because it got screams of joy at the doTERRA conference. This oil got so many screams because it’s a high-cannabinoid essential oil, meaning it brings a lot of potent chemistry to the table. If a miracle oil existed this may very well be the closest we would get.


For centuries, South Americans have used copaiba resin to promote the health of the respiratory, digestive, urinary, cardiovascular, and immune systems.
