Traditionally, the pure Copaiba has been used on inflammation, detoxification, stress, diseases of the ear, nose and throat, bronchitis and asthma. In addition to this, the Indigenous Peoples use the pure Copaiba Oil at parasitic- and fungal diseases.
The actions presented here on wild Copaiba Oil are for informational purposes only, for a self-study and as a supplementary tool to the traditional benefits of Copaiba Oil. The research of Copaiba is not yet fully complete and the given informations are based in part on experiences and smaller-scale studies on Copaiba. According to our opinion, Copaiba could be a real “panacea“.
1. Natural Disinfectant
One of the best known benefits of copaiba oil is as a effective germicide and antibacterial efficacy. Slinical studies shows that certain chemicals like terpenes only found in Copaiba Balsam works like anti-microbial agents. It interrupt the reproduction by a enzyme blockade that prevents the spreading of bacteria. It can eliminating also the eggs and larvae, thus preventing all reproduction on some parasites and mites.
At the same it is used orally or even externally like a natural Fungicide to control diseases caused in particular by fungi (Candida albicans).
2. Topical Anti-inflammatory
Copaiba oil has been considered as one of the nature’s most efficient anti-inflammatory agent, that can supports the inside and the outside of the body evenly. This Benefit is what makes copaiba becoming more popular such an effective anti-inflammatory agent. Copaiba have identified two subtypes of cannabinoids called CB1 and CB2. The main chemical substance of is the cannabinoid beta-caryophyllene (BCP) wich is known from the CBD- or Cannabis Oil. The beta-caryophyllene – a CB2 receptor – works within the immune system where they affect T-4 helper cells and white blood cells to support healthy immune function while potentiate the body’s innate immune system to reduce inflammation. The BCP from Copaiba does NOT affect the body like the psychoactive cannabinoids in marijuana. But it is precisely this which Copaiba makes it so interesting.
But beta-caryophyllene not the only Factor how it is often talked. Rather, this is only a sales laundry of dubious MLM-companies (Multi-Level-Marketing). Because it has up of 72 different types of sesquiterpene and beta-caryophyllene is only one of this full-spectrum of ingredients. The Fact is: beta-caryophyllene very heat resistant and thus predestined for use in distillation to win the essential Copaiba Oil. The problem, however, is the most of the other sesquiterpene are bound to volatile organic compounds. The bioactive substances are extremely sensitive to heat and vaporising at temperatures of destillation or become inactive. With the essential Copaiba oil one experiences mainly the effect of beta-caryophyllene but the full range of the activity spectrum are often remains unknown.
That is why we should prefer the pure and wild Copaiba Oil with all its vital substances and positive characteristic properties made by the untouched nature in the deep of the Amzon Rainforest. Therefore use the same Copaiba Oil as the Amazon Indians also use it!
3. Natural Diuretic
Copaiba Oil is a potent candidate as a natural Diuretic and for the production of drugs and pharmaceutical formulations like intimate care- and personal hygiene products. Copaiba contains various substances in the oil with diuretic properties that enhances the kidney functionality. It is confirmed by the most consumers that if one takes a teaspoonful of Copaiba (don´t take the essential oil) 6 weeks long on an empty stomach, approx. 2 hours before the breakfast, has curative effect on diuretic properties and can used for the treatment of the kidneys and for supporting the detoxication of the liver.
4. Natural Expectorant

From the traditional uses have been able to identify anti-Gastritis activity, while other studies remain unclear on the anti-Gastritis properties of copaiba oil. However, pure doses copaiba oil can help reduce stomach ulcers or gastrointestinal problems. However, studies have been unable to conclusively tell us what copaiba oil is most effective on, often only hinting at incomplete studies and possible benefits. But then, traditional medicine lauds copaiba oil, and it has been believed to provide most of the benefits on Gastritis.
9. Antiphlogistic from chronic skin conditions

Initial studies show that Copaiba has a high potential as a natural immunoregulator and even help to reduce the side-effects of pharmaceutical products. In a study from Tokyo was twice as effective at increasing the lifespan in mice with carcinomas by 98% compared to the standard chemotherapy drug 5-Fluorouacil (increased lifespan by 46%). In view of the rules and guidelines of the cancer treatment, Copaiba in conjunction with the classical treatment methods can be additional therapy-supporting.
A other study by a Spanish research team documented copaiba’s antimicrobial effects also tested for in vitro antitumor effects on human lung carcinoma, human colon carcinoma, human melanoma and mouse lymphoid neoplasm cell lines.

The interesting thing is that the Andiroba Oil contains bioactive substances which – when used preventively – should prevent the formation of cellulite by enzymatic blockade on his inhibitory action on the enzyme G6PDH. In turn, Copaiba strengthen the effectiveness of Andiroba and both can be used as solid foundation for preventive Cellulite formulations, innovative drugs and pharmaceutical products.
