I use Balsam Copaiba with Sweet Orange for pain in my knee. Works wonderfully. I love it =)
Balsam Copaiba is a mildly scented tree resin oil from Brazil that is widely used for skin rashes, itchiness, and inflammation. It is pain numbing (due to high b-caryophyllene content) and is also antifungal, cooling, and skin healing.

Balsam Copaiba is excellent to diffuse while meditating. It frees the mind from chaotic thoughts allowing for self-reflection, focus and a feeling of peace. Like most resins, Balsam Copaiba is grounding and helpful in dealing with old emotional scars and issues. It encourages a feeling of inner-strength and connection to the world and those around you.
SAFETY: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Always dilute essential oils before applying to the skin and keep away from mucous membranes. If the oil is past it’s “use by” date or stored improperly, it may cause irritation and lose therapeutic value.
