    6 ways to use Copaiba essential oil

    18 May 17, 2018 - Diffuser Blends, Essential Oils
    Open a bottle of Copaiba essential oil and let the scent of the Amazon rainforest out. Steam distilled and resin tapped from the Brazilian Copaifera reticulata tree, Copaiba essential oil features a warm, woodsy scent and includes the naturally occurring constituent beta-caryophyllene, making it a popular addition to many spa and skin treatments. With a comforting, earthy aroma and a myriad of uses, Copaiba is the perfect daily indulgence to feel transported to a lush South American landscape. Read on for our favorite ways to use Copaiba oil.
    1. In your moisturizer

    Does your skin need a pick-me-up? Copaiba essential oil reduces the appearance of blemishes and promotes the appearance of a youthful, radiant glow. Add a few drops to a neutral or lightly scented moisturizer for a spa-like experience every evening before bed.
    2. As a perfume

    Copaiba oil has a uniquely sweet aromatic profile, which won’t overpower soft florals or subtle hints of citrus. Use it in customized perfumes in place of other woodsy oils like Cedarwood or Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood for a more delicate summer fragrance that won’t be overpowering in warmer temperatures.
    3. In the diffuser

    With a scent straight out of the Amazon, Copaiba puts the experience of a rainforest hideout just a few drops away. Put on some nature sounds and fill a room with this exotic aroma:
    Rainforest Escape

    4. During a massage

    After a hard workout, strenuous hike, or overall stressful day, share a Copaiba massage with a loved one. Dilute Copaiba with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex or a carrier oil of your choice and massage on fatigued areas after activity for a comforting cooldown.
    5. In your diet

    Copaiba has a soothing, complex flavor with a hint of balsamic. Its high beta-caryophyllene content makes it a popular dietary supplement. Young Living’s Copaiba Vitality™ is labeled for internal use and makes a great addition to herbal teas such as chamomile or rooibos. It can also be added to a capsule and taken internally.
    6. In a foot soak

    Imagine yourself at a spa in the Brazilian rainforest. If you can’t get away, bring the spa to you with a luxurious foot soak. This spa-inspired Tropical Resort Foot Soak recipe will whisk you away and soothe muscles at the end of a long day.
    Tropical Resort Foot Soak

    Ingredients:


    Directions:

    1. Mix Epsom salt and essential oils in a small bowl.
    2. Add salt mixture to warm water.
    3. Sit back, relax, and let your feet soak for 15–30 minutes.

    don't just eat any essential oil. can't do that. Make sure it is safe. I also use copaiba in combination with other oils because it acts as a booster.

    Never give cats lemon essential oil.

    I like the essential peppermint oil. I use it mixed with water and some Dawn detergent as a spray repellent, to help keep the spiders from building their webs over my outdoor mounted security cameras. Because as the webs move about in the wind, the webs keeps the camera(s) in the motion "triggered" mode all night.

    Lavender oil works well when needing to relax.
    A spritz on the pillow and ....mmmmmmmmm

    The last time I was in the hospital I was severely nauseous and my nurse asked me if I wanted to try essential oils.
    I was sick of medication and agreed.
    The essential oils worked. I'll find out what it contained.

    1. Lavender Lavandula angustifolia (Mill.)

    When you think of lavender, relaxation and restful sleep are usually the first things that come to mind. But along with its lovely floral aroma and soothing qualities, lavender is also effective at battling the bugs.
    Lavender pillows and sachets are wonderful in linen cupboards and chests of drawers and will keep away moths and other insects while leaving a fresh scent. Lavender oil can be sprayed from an atomizer or left in a saucer to help keep away ants and insects, and to disinfect the air.[1]
    2. Basil Ocimum basilicum (L.)

    Not just a zesty addition to your tomato sauce, basil essential oil is ideal for summer pest control, especially if you live in a wet climate with lots of lakes and ponds. One study showed O. basilicum exhibiting both mosquito repellent and larvicidal activity.[2] Basil is an uplifting oil, so add some to an atomizer and spray outside for a natural mosquito repellent and a well-deserved mood boost!
    Additionally, if you suffer from indoor allergies on those rainy, summer days, a 2014 study also concluded that practical dust mite control can be achieved with basil oil.[3] Yet another reason to clean green with versatile essential oils!
    3. Thyme Thymus vulgaris (L.)

    I think all of us can agree that the common housefly is one of the most aggravating creatures on the planet. If you’ve ever lived on a farm, these pests are even more of a headache! Lucky for us, thyme has been found to be a highly effective insecticide against houseflies.[4] A 2005 study also found thyme to be an excellent mosquito repellent as well.[5] Win, win!
    4. Pine Pinus sylvestris (L.)

    If you love camping but despise using Deet or other chemical bug sprays, pine is your perfect companion. A natural repellent against mosquitoes, pine will also keep you smelling fresh as the forest!
    5. Vetiver Vetiveria zizanioides (Nash)

    In Java, Indonesia, sustainable vetiver essential oil production has produced a viable vetiver craft industry with items such as aromatic mats, baskets, candles, and soaps—all being produced from the spent root. The added benefit is vetiver acts as a natural mosquito deterrent in the house. Diffusing a few drops of this oil will help repel the mosquitoes and also create a spicy, Balinese ambience for summer.
    6. Bergamot Citrus aurantium (L.) var. bergamia

    Is there anything more “summery” than citrus? Bergamot is one of my favorite oils to use for green cleaning, and it’s also the perfect addition to your natural insect repellent spray as it adds a mood boosting, fruity lift. It’s important to note that bergamot is very phototoxic, so you should not use it outside as a topical insect repellent, but rather an aromatic insect repellent spray.
    If the bugs happen to make a meal out of you on those long summer evenings, bergamot is a wonderful oil for topical use on insect bites or stings (just keep out of the sun)!
    7. Peppermint Mentha ×piperita (L.)

    If you would rather a fresh and minty clean aroma in your bug spray than that icky chemical smell, peppermint is the perfect choice. Peppermint is a natural insecticide that kills as well as repels mosquitoes.
    In one study, M. ×piperita showed repellent action when applied to exposed body parts. It also displayed significant larvicidal and mosquito repellant action: Larvae of Culex quinuefasciatus were completely killed 24 hours after exposure (in water) to 3 ml of M. ×piperita per square meter of water.[6]
    Peppermint is also useful on insect stings and bites! Here's a great recipe:

    Insect Stings and Bites Recipe

    • Tea tree Australia Melaleuca alternifolia: 10 drops
    • Peppermint Mentha piperita: 10 drops

    Apply to the area undiluted as often as needed.
    8. Tea Tree Australia Melaleuca alternifolia (Cheel)

    Will the wonders of Australian tea tree oil ever cease? Tea tree is not only a green cleaning powerhouse, but it is also an antiparasitic, capable of destroying or suppressing the growth of parasites such as fleas, leeches, lice, and ticks. Use diffusion or direct topical application. Like bergamot, if those nasty critters do make a meal out of you, Australian tea tree can help beat the irritation from bites or stings.
    9. Eucalyptus Eucalyptus globulus (Labill.)

    A standard in any natural green cleaning kit, your eucalyptus essential oil can also be used as an insecticide.
    In a 2010 study,[7] three species of eucalyptus (E. staigeriana, E. citriodora, and E. globulus) were tested for use with the blood-sucking sandfly, lutzomyia Lutzomyia longipalpis. Researchers found the eucalyptus essential oils were more effective against L. longipalpis than other natural products.
    10. Lemon eucalyptus Eucalyptus citriodora (Hook.)

    As mentioned above, lemon eucalyptus E. citriodora can also be used as a natural insecticide—especially for those who love that citrusy smell for summer! It was also discovered that the distillate or hydrosol was very effective against mosquitoes and not as volatile as the essential oil. This could be a great essential oil mosquito repellent option for use around children and pets, since the hydrosol still provides very high protection from a broad range of insects over several hours.[8]
    I was lucky enough to visit an essential oil lab run by the Ethiopian government when I visited the country in 2006. They were doing a lot of work with lemon eucalyptus essential oil as an insect repellant—critical in parts of the world where malaria is running rife! E. citriodora is an excellent resource as the tree grows quickly and has a fairly high yield of essential oil.
    Now that you have your oils ready to arm yourself against the bites and stings of summer, here is my favorite natural insect repellent recipe for keeping those bugs at bay. Happy summer!

    Natural Insect Repellant Spray Recipe

    • Lavender Lavandula angustifolia oil: 15 drops
    • Lemon eucalyptus Eucalyptus citriodora oil: 10 drops
    • Tea tree Australia Melaleuca alternifolia oil: 10 drops
    • Lime Citrus aurantifolia oil: 6 drops

    • Bergamot Citrus aurantium var. bergamia oil: 6 drops
    • Distilled water: 2 ounces
    • Vinegar from your kitchen: 2 ounces (I prefer white vinegar, but apple cider works too! Leave the balsamic for the Caprese salad!)

    Blend all the ingredients and put into a spray bottle. Shake well before using. Note: Both bergamot and lime are photosensitive oils. This is an aromatic blend meant to be diffused into the air around you and is not intended for topical or internal use.

    In my experience, the most effective mosquito/fly/flea/chigger repellant is Lemon Tea Tree, Leptospermon petersonii, from Australia. I know the government approved Lemon Euc as a repellant, but our experience was that product substituting the lemon euc. instead of lemon tea tree were much less effective. The Lemon Teatree oil is a summertime necessity for us.

    Hi Leanne,

    Are you referring to #10 - Lemon eucalyptus oil? If so, no, this is a different species of eucalyptus plant, and is not related to the citrus fruit (although it's very lemony!).

    However, Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) is great for discouraging insects and blends very well with lemon (Citrus limonum) so I imagine it would still make a great household spray/blend!

    Good luck this summer!
