Quassia amara No insect or pest ever bothers the tall and elegant quassia trees. The reason behind such a strange fact is that the entire tree, particularly the white colored timber, is infused with a tremendously astringent resin. The key chemical component of the resin is an amalgam known as quassin, which is said to be an effective insecticide. Apart from being a potent insecticide, quassin is valuable to us both medicinally and otherwise. These pieces of this dried bark, can be used in making drinks and bitters.

Price is per ounce.
