Cocillana bark (Guarea rusbyi), also known as grape bark, comes from a flowering tree of the same name found in South and Central America. Today, it is predominantly associated with and sourced from Bolivia. The plant is evergreen and belongs to the Meliaceae family.
The outer surface of the bark is grey brown in colour and, when dried, can be used in the formulation of herbal drugs. The bark contains resins and tannin and has a musky odour.
