Copaiba General Information
Copaiba is a giant tropical legume found in the rain forests of Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela. Copaiba is an evergreen tree, reaching up to 100 feet in height. This tree produces compound leaves and small yellow flowers.Copaiba Tree Trunk w/Resin It contains an oleoresin (naturally occurring mixture of a resin and an essential oil) that is clear, colorless, and very thin, but becomes thicker and more yellow when it is exposed to the air. It is obtained from drillings into the trunk. A single tree can yield up to forty liters of resin. Native Brazilians long before the arrival of Europeans used the resin. It was introduced into Europe in the 16th century. In 1625, a Portuguese monk observed that it was used to heal wounds and to remove scars. As well as being used for medicinal purposes, the resinous oil has also been used for non-medical purposes, including as an additive to perfumes and varnishes.

Copaiba Uses & Scientific Evidence For
The oleoresin is the part of the tree that has medicinal value. It has stimulant, diuretic, carminative, expectorant, antiseptic, laxative properties, and in large doses, it has purgative qualities. Copaiba is a natural remedy for treating chronic catarrh and bronchitis. It also works well in treating leucorrhea, chronic cystitis, and diarrhea. Externally it can be used for chilblains and hemorrhoids and works well in soothing other skin inflammations such as arthritis, and irritations such as eczema and psoriasis. The oleoresin has also been used to treat basal cell carcinoma (skin cancer). Shampoos with Copaiba in them help reduce dandruff. The volatile oil of Copaiba is anti-microbial and can help prevent secondary infections with gonorrhea, herpes, and syphilis.

Several of the forty Copaifera species yield a medicinal oleoresin. The main one is Copaiba, but others are tapped as well including the following: C. coriacea, C. multijuga, C. officinalis, and C. reticulata. In Zimbabwe, a decoction of C. mopane is inhaled for temporary insanity.

Researchers in Brazil found in a 1998 study that there was less damage to the stomach tissue and concluded that the resin increased mucus production that acted as an antacid.

The Journal of Ethnopharmacology reported this in 2007: Copaiba oil resins are extensively commercialized in Brazil as capsules or crude oil and used as anti-inflammatory and anti-septic. This study compared two of the Amazonian Copaiba oils. Results demonstrated that the Copaiba oils did not develop toxic effects in doses ranging from 30 Ė 150 mg. The results indicate that Copaiba oils demonstrate peripheral and central antinociceptive effect. Examples of nociceptive include sprains, bone fractures, burns, bumps, bruises and inflammation. This new effect may be useful in the treatment of algesic disorders (Relating to hypersensitivity to pain).
