Botanical Aspects

A copaiba tree is a tree that can grow over 25 meters tall, and its bark, leaves, and branches emit the characteristic smell of the oil. The fruits are highly appreciated by forest animals. Copaiba oil, or oleoresin, is distributed in the tree's wood through excellent vertical channels and accumulates in small pockets in its trunk. Copaiba uses this oil to defend against its natural enemies, such as termites.

Bergamot, orange, lemon, palmarosa, tangerine, ylang-ylang.

Fun Facts

The first mention of Copaiba oil may have been made in a letter from Petrus Martius to Pope Leo X published in 1534 in Strasbourg. In that letter, reference is made to "copei" as an indigenous drug. Later, it was described by Linnaeus in 1762. This was probably the main species of Copaiba whose oils were traded through the Caribbean in the early days of the colonization of America in the 16th and 17th centuries, as it was the most common in northern Amazon, in the far north of Brazil, in Roraima, from Venezuela to the Antilles, being called by the indigenous people Copaiba Maracaibo. Currently, the oils from this species are still commercialized in the region, especially in Boa Vista. The dissemination of C. officinalis depends directly on the seed dispersers. Generally, toucans are attracted by its yellow aril and the coumarin odor emitted by the seeds. When the Portuguese arrived in Brazil, Copaiba oil was widely used among Brazilian indigenous peoples. Everything indicates that the use of this oil came from observing the behavior of certain animals that, when injured, rubbed themselves on the trunks of Copaiba trees. The indigenous people used it mainly as a healing agent and applied it to the umbilicus of newborns to prevent the "seven-day illness." When returning from battles, warriors would apply Copaiba oil to their bodies and lie on suspended and heated mats to heal wounds. The tree, also called "pau de óleo" (oil wood), is easily found in the forest due to the intense aroma of its bark. Called "copaíva" or "copahu" by the indigenous people (from the Tupi: kupa'iwa and kupa'u, respectively).
