Copaiba - the main chemical constituent is beta-caryophyllene, a phytocannabinoid. A cannabinoid is the name used for anything that interacts with the endocannabinoid system. This system in your body is responsible for helping to regulate the inflammatory system, immune function, sleep, pain receptors, hormones, and more. In short, the effect Copaiba can have on your health and wellness is vastly intricate, dynamic, and significant. (3) When blended into a facial moisturizer it reduces the appearance of blemishes and keeps skin healthy-looking and clear. In addition to everything Copaiba can do on its own, the oil has a unique ability to enhance the absorption of other essential oils when applied topically. Better absorption means better results, no matter what results you’re looking for or which oil you choose.
