Jatoba Powder – Cats and Dogs


JATOBA, known in Peru as Azucar Huayo, is a towering canopy tree that grows plentifully throughout the Peruvian Amazon Rain Forest ecosystems.

All parts of the tree are used medicinally for varying purposes.

The tree produces an aromatic copal amber resin (think Jurassic Park) that not only helps the JATOBA tree resist decay but also protects the tree from wounds, insect attacks or other affronts to the health of the tree and its foliage.

Interestingly, JATOBA is one of the few trees in the Amazon that remains unaffected by fungal infections that commonly plague Amazonian trees.
