Meet Copaiba – Since the 16th century, Copaiba has been prized for its traditional health benefits.

It’s gained rapid popularity due to easy, everyday use. Copaiba is harvested from Copaiba trees. It’s steam distilled, collecting aromatic compounds directly from the resin of the tree.

Swish 2 drops Copaiba and 1 drop Peppermint to freshen the breath and promote oral cleanliness
Diffuse 2 drops to promote a restful night’s sleep
Place 1-2 drops of Copaiba under the tongue to encourage a general sense of well-being during times of stress or nervousness
Apply 1-2 drops to areas of discomfort
Add 1-2 drops to facial routine to promote healthy skin
Having cramps during that time of the month is the worst. They can be intense and put you out of commission – missing work, school, or social events.

I like to refer to Copaiba as nature’s aid for menstrual cramps. I keep a supply of my DIY menstrual capsules on hand and take as needed.

2. Take internally as needed for relief
A few years ago, I stopped dieting. Instead of focusing on a complicated diet plan or fad diet, I focused on eating nutrients that are good FOR my body and give me energy. No matter what health plan you choose to pursue, there are things you can do to be more healthy
Maintain portion control
Plan meals ahead
Avoid processed food
And one of my favorites… incorporate essential oils
