AQ Essential Oil - COPAIBA OIL RESIN
COPAIBA OIL RESIN
Copaifera officinalis Oleoresin Oil (a thin pourable oil), Brazil. Extracted from the resin found in the trunk of the pinnate-leaved copaiba tree (genus Copaifera), which grows in tropical Latin America - the resin is tapped from standing trees and then filtered for purity. Copaiba oil-resins have been used medicinally by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil, dating back to the 16th century in the treatment of various diseases. In the 21st century, studies have shown Copaiba has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-tetanus, antiseptic, anti-microbial, wound-healing and antihemorrhagic properties. Copaiba is believed to assist in tissue repair making it good for damaged and problem skin. In perfumery, the base-note oil is used as a fixative in perfumes and fragrances. Within the Peruvian Amazon, Copaiba is also used as an insect repellent.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils. We have searched far and wide to find the best quality oils - all are 100% pure undiluted plant based oils with no additives, synthetics or preservatives. We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils - these are chemical concoctions of ingredients similar to what is usually found in a plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils.
Our 10ml Premium Essential Oils are packaged in Aromatherapy-safe cobalt blue glass with silver cap, complete with top ID label - a necessity for anyone with more than a couple of bottles in their collection. 4ml precious oils are supplied in a small dropper vial. 50 and 100ml bulk sizes are available for some oils, and are supplied in an amber glass bottle - if you require a bulk size and it isn't listed just send us an email and we'd be happy to give you a quote - contact us at [email protected]
If you're new to aromatherapy, or want to stock up on a few different oils, please take a look in our PACKS & KITS section for discounted Starter and Advanced packs.
SAFETY & USAGE
As with all essential oils, our oils must be diluted before application to skin, must NEVER be administered internally, and must always be kept out of the reach of children. Some must be avoided when pregnant (see individual listings), and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil, and also head to our 'LEARN MORE' section for a quick introduction to aromatherapy if you are unfamiliar with essential oils. For anyone starting out we'd recommend even a basic introductory booklet on the subject (see our BOOKS section for a selection of booklets and textbooks).
Always remember, Aromatherapy is intended to complement, not replace traditional medicine.
