Andirobia is a popular medicinal tree in Brazil. The oil has traditionally been used topically as an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy treatment. The oil contains a range of natural antioxidants and is quite resistant to oxidation. It has also been found to have a mild insect repelling capacity when applied neat to the skin. This property can be traced to the oils terpene content, a key component being the meliancins. One additional benefit of this oil is it's naturally high percentage of free oleic acid. This makes it a good skin penetration enhancer.
