Copaiba Balsam

Arctander has this to say “Copaiba “Balsam” blends well with cinnamic alcohol, styrax, amyris oil, coumarin, lavandin oil, cedarwood oils, ionones and methylionones, nitromusks, and numerous other common perfumery materials. It is often used as a fixative in low-cost violet and wood perfumes, for lavender or fougeres in detergent perfumes, industrial perfumes, etc.”

This copaiba balsam is from Maranhao in Brazil and therapeutically lends itself well to killing germs, healing wounds, reducing inflammation and providing pain relief. Blended in carrier oil it can also be considered as a useful and effective way to treat piles. This material is produced by drilling holes into the trunk of the tree and collecting the material that flows out. Of a thick and somewhat gloopy viscosity but still pourable.
