Copaiba Essential Oil

First, let’s discuss Copaiba essential oil. There is a lot of talk about it being “cannabis-like.” However, I would like to officially set the record straight by stating it isnt. Why does this idea keep getting tossed around?! Well, it is due to the main chemical component being Beta-Caryophyllene, a sesquiterpene, and research shows that this component can bind with CB2 receptor sites. The CB2 receptor sites are part of the endocannabinoid system that cannabinoids interact with.

So, Copaiba, as an essential oil, is GREAT for supporting cellular activity and skin health…. ALSO, because of this CB2 activation- it is an AMAZING support product for nervous and immune function, and has soothing and relaxing properties on the body WITHOUT making you sleepy, hungry, or high. ? There have been over 70 ??peer reviewed studies published in scientific journals the last few years evaluating the effects of copaiba! ??Several of them focus on this CB2-binding actions! ?

Siberian Fir Essential Oil

SO now, Siberian Fir!??
this christmas-y aroma packs a serious punch when it comes to CALMING US DOWN! When you think of Siberian Fir- think “easy like Sunday Morning”. It chills out your mood, it chills out your SKIN, it chills out your lungs, it chills out your muscles and joints. It’s main chemical constituent is bornyl acetate, an ester, so it is in the same group as Lavender, Petitgrain, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Jasmine, Helichrysum, etc.

I have been rolling this on pulse points with my Jasmine Touch and let me tell you- it is divine- in smell and in calm. CALM. Just keep thinking about your chill factor. These two oils have you covered!
