Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes because of its ability to soothe the skin.

Why Brazil?

Copaiba trees grow in tropical South America, especially along the Amazon in Brazil. The Amazon River basin experiences about 80-85 percent humidity year-round with an average of 90 inches of rain per year. Because of its position on the equator, the Amazon Rainforest receives 12 hours of sunlight every day of the year. These unique conditions are exceptional for raising Copaiba trees.

How Does it Work?


The essential oil is steam distilled from the oleoresin of the Copaiba tree. A Copaiba tree is tapped for its oleoresin, similar to the way maple syrup is harvested. For six months of the year, the Copaiba trees of the Amazon are inaccessible. However, the Amazon experiences its rainy season each year from January to June. During this time, the river and its tributaries rise an average of 20 feet (6 m) or more, which means that the Copaiba trees can be reached by boat.

When a tree is first tapped, it gives an initial volume of oleoresin. The hole is then plugged, and the tree is re-visited once or twice per year. The amount of oleoresin that a Copaiba tree produces is related to the diameter of the tree, the size of the tree canopy, and its location within the jungle canopy, but each tree can produce somewhere between 2 and 6 litres of oleoresin annually. A Copaiba tree can live up to 400 years and grow more than 100 feet (30 m) tall.

Harvesting Copaiba

We partner with local harvesting families that live along the Amazon River in Brazil. These families are accustomed to travelling by boat to reach neighbours and nearby towns. Each family takes care of several trees, a tradition that has been fostered for generations.

Co-impact Sourcing

Generating Jobs Along the Amazon

Communities in the rural Amazon region are among the most poverty-stricken in Brazil, due in part to lack of support for smallholder farmers. doTERRA partners with local harvesting families to source Copaiba essential oil. Here’s how this has affected harvesters living along the Amazon River in Brazil:

  • The livelihoods of at least 3,000 harvesters are currently supported by doTERRA.
  • In the past, harvesters were not guaranteed a fair market price and sales were irregular. Thanks to doTERRA, they are now paid a fair price on a regular, reliable basis.
