[ISO norm 9235 code K2.12] sourced from Brazil, normally containing 80+% sesquiterpene hydrocarbons mainly β-Caryophyllene (50+%), with α-Humulene, and α-Copaene amongst the more prominent secondary components. This produces a clear, colourless to pale yellow oil with a slight warm peppery, medicinal, balsamic aroma making an excellent fixative for natural fragrances.
Copaiba Extra Essential Oil CAS 8001-61-4
Copaiba Oil is a colourless or pale yellow to yellow-green or bluish, very mobile oil. The odour is similar to that of the “balsam”, but much milder, sweeter, almost creamy-balsamic with a faint peppery-spicy undertone. There are notes which resemble furfuryl alcohol and cadinene, others may remind of the notes in Peru balsam oil. A very peculiar and complex odour.
