Distilled from a South American tree, this sweet and woody oil is renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties. It also contains properties that make it ideal for healing damaged skin, preventing fungal growth and improving respiratory health.
As we age, our skin starts to loosen, and Copaiba Balsam’s astringent properties help tighten skin, thus reducing wrinkles. The skin is also strengthened, making it harder for it to be scraped or cut. This combined with its anti-inflammatory properties are what made Copaiba Balsam such a great oil for reducing mild acne and scaring.
Below is a massage blend that I have found beneficial for reducing mild pain and inflammation. If you are in a hurry and don’t want to make your own blend, you can always use my Muscle Ice Roll-On or Healthy Spritz, they have the same soothing effects without the hassle of blending (it’s a win-win).
Inflammation Be Gone
- 1 oz. Massage Blend Carrier Oil (Castor Oil is also great for mild pain relief)
- 8 drops Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil
- 4 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
- Amber Bottle
Pour carrier oil into amber bottle and add essential oils one drop at a time. Seal bottle; shake to combine oils. Gently massage into inflamed areas. Be sure to wash hands after application. Use as needed. Store remaining oil in cool, dry place. This blend can help acne and scaring.
