Hi! I’ve been busy learning a lot of new things. That’s good and it’s good for my brain! What an adventure learning is. I try to learn something new every day. My mom always said that if you can learn something new, then you can have a nap. Well, I never liked to nap as a child but now?! Not so much either but a breal with some cold iced tea is very nice!
Anyway, what is Copiba? Young Living sells this essential oil. It is one of the essential oils that can be used neat (without being diluted). It comes from Brazil and it is a resin generally classified as black, white or Brazilian.
I find it very interesting that the Brazilian copal or copaiba is the only type to have the distinction of being regarded as GRAS (generally regarded as safe) in the US and has the most published research on its anti-inflammatory effects! Woohoo!
While its anti-inflammatory effects are highly researched, it may also be anti-microbial, anti-ulcer, antiseptic, anti-cancer, and neuroprotective (protects the nerves). AND it may help to prevent kidney stones. Oh my! It is a proven pain reliever because of its strong anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent choice for arthritis, rheumatism, skin disorders like psoriasis, insect bites, stomach distress, urinary disorders, sore throat and anxiety. Safe as a food additive.
I have combined it with Arnica (another potent pain reliever) and Young Living Panaway in a coconut oil base with some pretty amazing results. So now, it is available to you. If you are interested in trying this, here is the link.
After you try it, let me know what you think.
Until next time….keep on keepin’ on!
