Product Abstract: Copaiba Balsam Resin is extracted
from trees growing in the wild. They are found mainly in the South
American rain forests, particularly in Brazil, Columbia, Peru and
Venezuela. The resin is harvested by tapping or drilling holes into the
trunk of the tree, much like how rubber trees are tapped. Although this
resin is often referred to as balsam, it is not a true balsam. Copaiba
Balsam Oil has been used historically as a fixative in perfumes and
