Simarouba officinalis - Simaruba flowers
The leaves and bark were historically used as a remedy for dysentery.
They are very bitter, since it contains, among others, a bitter principle identical with quassin.
Indigenous tribes of Amerindians in the rainforest used it as a hemostat to stop bleeding, for fevers and against dysentery.
