Copaiba oil, pronounced Co-pa-ee-ba, has diuretic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, expectorant, disinfectant, and stimulant capabilities.
Healers and curanderos in the Amazon of Brazil rely on
copaiba to treat chronic pain, and it is used as a topical
anti-inflammatory agent for all types of skin irritations and
infections. They also employ the oil as a strong antiseptic
and expectorant for the respiratory tract (including
bronchitis and sinusitis) and as an anti-inflammatory and

anti-inflammatory essential oils.
Marc Schreuder said that copaiba was helichrysum on steroids. He has been studying copaiba for eight years and says it is his number one favorite oil with frankincense coming in at number two.
