Product details

Our added value

The trees that provide copaiba balsam, Copaifera officinalis, have been supporting families for over 30 years. By working directly with these communities, we help to maintain their autonomy and preserve traditional harvesting techniques.

The traceability of the copaiba used for our essential oil is guaranteed up to the geographical zones of harvest.

Established since 1991 in Almaden de la Plata, at the North of Seville in Spain, our factory has developed a strong expertise in distillation: equipped with a team of expert technicians and a dedicated distillation unit. We steam distill the copaiba balsam into essential oil in our facilities in Spain.

The essential oil of copaiba has a strong dry woody character like cedar, a freshness at the top followed by resinous facets of pine with medicinal inflections and rounded by spicy notes of pepper.

Rich in sesquiterpenes, the essential oil of copaiba is an ally to soothe the body and the skin. It will help to find rest as well as to bring mental harmony.

Copaifera officinalis grows in the heart of the Amazon jungle, forcing collectors to travel many miles before reaching the wild trees and extracting their resin.
The resin is extracted using a traditional process. A hole is drilled in the wood to extract the liquid resin. Once the harvesting is finished, the hole is sealed with clay or wood, first to avoid infestation of the trees by fungus or termites, but also to allow the
termites, but also to allow further resin extraction.
Once harvested, the copaiba balsam is transported from the forest to the villages where the cooperatives we partner with are located. These cooperatives finance the collectors, decant the oil and export it.
The decanted balsam is transformed into essential oil by steam distillation in our facilities in Spain.
