Description:
Tree that reaches a height of 12 meters, with very small red or yellow flowers that grow in clusters and have no aroma. It also produces brown fruit. The bark is considered to have medicinal properties for treating peptic ulcers, gastritis, stomach pain and inflammation. The bark is cut, dried, and boiled as a tea or taken as an enema. This tree is sometimes referred to as palo mulato in Spanish because of its resemblance to the species Bursera simaruba, but the name yaga la guitu xiña' refers to at least two species of plants from two different families, Burseraceae and Anacardiaceae.
