Brazil wood (Caesalpinia echinata or Caesalpinia crista) is native to parts of India, the West Indies and South America. It has no real odour and only a mildly sweet taste, but its colour is vivid and distinctive – as we’ll explain below. Interested in placing a bulk order of brazil wood?

When cut into, brazil wood shows its vivid red colour – a colour that has led to the ingredient being used in all manner of dyes and inks over the years. The distinctive hue is caused by the presence of brazilin, which also explains the wood’s nickname.
In the past, brazil wood (or heart wood, as it’s otherwise known) was also used in medicine; Chinese herbal practitioners used it to help reduce bleeding and the appearance of bruises.
