What is Balsam Copaiba?
Balsam Copaiba is a oleoresin (a clear yellow resin) obtained from the trunk of several pinnate-leaved South American leguminous trees (genus Copaifera). The trees have pinnate leathery leaves and its blossoms are borne in whitish racemes; the flowers are white, small and aromatic. The fruit is a coriaceous legume containing only a single seed. The oleoresin accumulates in cavities within the trunk; it is obtained by making incisions in the tree trunk. Although this resin is referred to as a balsam, in reality it is more a natural oil.
