Copaiba Balsam Oil is steam distilled from the gum/resin of Copaifera officinalis, a tree that is native to Brazil and parts of South America. It's a lesser known botanical and oil, and I'm still getting acquainted with its intriguing aroma and applications.
Aromatically, Copaiba Balsam Essential has a deep, rich, earthy, grounding aroma. It can be used as a fixative in natural aromatics in place of Oakmoss Absolute. This is especially appealing since Oakmoss Absolute possesses a high risk of skin sensitivity.

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.)
