Copaiba oil was first introduced to the rest of the world in the 17th century, when it was known as Jesuit’s balsam (because it had been brought back from the New World by the Jesuits).

Copaiba oil has a long history of use in South America, where it has traditionally been used as a topical remedy to help clear up skin problems including dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, rashes, herpes, insect bites, injuries, wounds and boils.

Among other things, it was used as a topical preparation applied to haemorrhoids, and also to soothe chilblains and should be used today. Like Clove, it can be used for pain relief and also in skincare for anti-microbial purposes as well as treating skin conditions such as moles or similar.
