To Dilute or Not Dilute... that is the question.

Carrier oils, such as Fractionated Coconut Oil, help trap volatile compounds which minimizes evaporation and enhances penetration through the skin.
Large molecule carrier oils (argan oil, rose-hip oil, jojoba oil, ...) are greasy and do not absorb well. They are used to provide a layer of protection on your skin.
Small molecules, like water, absorb too quickly and do not protect/trap essential oil volatiles.
Medium-chain triglycerides of Fractionated Coconut Oil absorb well and protect essential oil volatiles from evaporating.
Topical application is great, especially using massage. It stimulates the dilution of blood vessels resulting in improved skin absorption of volatile compounds.

BCP, caryophyllene, is a cannabinoid found in very high levels in doTERRA’s Copaiba and it interacts DIRECTLYwith CB2 receptors. When taken internally, the BCP in Copaiba possesses strong antioxidant properties, promotes healthy cellular function, may help support immune function while supporting overall circulatory health, and may help support the health of the gastrointestinal tract and colon.

Another interesting experimental research study found that Copaiba taken internally may help to support uterine health and ease menstruation.*
