Copal Bark Essential Oil is a rare and unusual oil that originates from the Daniella Oliveri, a large deciduous tree that is commonly found in the savanna and open grassland of tropical Africa. Copal trees are typically wild harvested in West African countries, ranging from Senegal to Cote D’Ivoire. Copal Bark Essential Oil is obtained from the gummy resin of the Copal tree. Our Copal Bark Essential Oil is extracted by CO2 extraction, resulting in a high-quality, pure essential oil. In West Africa, Copal Bark Essential Oil has been used for centuries for its remarkable medicinal properties. It has also long been part of shamanistic ritual. In perfumery, Copal Bark Essential Oil is widely regarded for its versatile and pleasant scent as a perfume base.
