Product Details

Quassia Wood Chips common uses:

  1. Digestive aid: Quassia wood chips have been traditionally used as a bitter digestive tonic. The quassinoid compounds in quassia wood are known to stimulate the production of digestive juices, including saliva, gastric acid, and bile. As a result, quassia wood chips are sometimes used to improve appetite, promote healthy digestion, and alleviate symptoms of indigestion, such as bloating and gas.

  2. Parasite control: Quassia wood chips are believed to have anthelmintic properties, meaning they can help eliminate intestinal parasites. The bitter compounds in quassia wood are thought to interfere with the viability and reproduction of parasites, potentially helping to expel them from the body. However, it's important to note that if you suspect a parasitic infection, it is essential to consult with a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

  3. Insect repellent: Quassia wood chips are sometimes used as a natural insect repellent. The bitter compounds in quassia wood are known to be distasteful to insects and can help deter pests such as mosquitoes, ants, and lice. Quassia wood chips may be burned or soaked in water to create a repellent solution or added to homemade insect repellent formulations.

  4. Traditional uses: Quassia wood chips have been used in traditional medicine for various other purposes, such as stimulating appetite, promoting detoxification, and supporting overall wellness. However, scientific research on these specific uses is limited, and further studies are needed to validate these claims.
