DR. DAVID K. HILL, DC Executive Vice President, Chief Medical Officer/Chairman, Scientific Advisory Committee What makes Copaiba different from Black Pepper or other essential oils high in caryophyllene? Copaiba is high in the sesquiterpene caryophyllene, which is also found in Clove, Black Pepper, Melissa, and several other essential oils. However, it is the breadth of its benefits that make Copaiba a unique essential oil. Like Black Pepper, it is effective as a surface cleaner and has high value as an antioxidant, but probably Copaiba’s most researched and valued property is its benefits to your skin. Along with supporting overall health and having the ability to reduce the appearance of minor skin blemishes, there is evidence to suggest that topical application of Copaiba may have biological activity in supporting health at the cellular level and in tissue remodeling. Try adding a drop or two to your skin moisturizer to boost its soothing and health- supporting benefits, and enjoy the distinct woody aroma. I am so excited about the new Rose Touch! What are some of your favorite ways to use it? We are all excited about the newly released Rose Touch, it will provide an opportunity for many more people to experience this amazing and rare oil. The best thing about it is that the pre-diluted application model provides the perfect combination of Fractionated Coconut Oil and Rose essential oil to deliver the most benefit while minimizing waste. Rose is one of the best essential oils for skin health and it only gets better when combined with the amazing emolliating benefit of Fractionated Coconut Oil. My wife carries around a bottle of Rose Touch in her purse to use throughout the day for moisturizing and to apply directly to minor skin irritations, and sometimes she just likes to pop the cap and smell the relaxing aroma. In a daily use model, how would Blue Tansy benefit me? The most distinct characteristic of Blue Tansy essential oil is its concentration of bicyclic sesquiterpene chamazulene, which provides its blue-violet color, but it also contains several more commonly known constituents such as the monoterpene, sabinene. In a daily use model, Blue Tansy is great for skin care as experimental research has shown that chamazulene has a multitude of skin health benefitting properties. Sabinene rich oils have been reported to reduce the appearance of blemishes and chamazulene can be soothing. Add Blue Tansy to your lotion or daily skin toner, and don’t be alarmed that it will change the color. For a soothing massage, try diluting it in Fractionated Coconut Oil and combining with a few drops of Lavender or Helichrysum and massaging into shoulders and neck.
