One of the best known, but least understood, herbs from the Amazonian rainforest, pau d'arco is a key ingredient in the tribal medicine chest.
Personality: Gorgeous, strong and enigmatic.
Herbal Power: Used historically by the indigenous peoples of South America and modern day herbalists.
Reason to Love: We love this amazingly beautiful, flowering tree, also known as 'Pink Ipe' or 'Pink Lapacho,' due to its stunning pinkish, purple trumpet-like flower. Traditional healers have been using the inner bark for hundreds of years. Only more recently has this cherished herb made its way into the herbal traditions of the West.
Taste: Earthy taste-woody, tannic and slightly bitter.
