Botanical Aspects

Andiroba is an indigenous word that means "bitter oil" and belongs to the same family as mahogany and cedar. The tree can reach up to 30 meters in height. It is a plant throughout the Amazon basin, Central America, and Africa. In Brazil, it is distributed in the northern states (Acre, Amazonas, Amapá, and Pará) and northeast (Maranhão), predominantly in the Amazon phytogeographic domain. It occurs in upland and floodplain forests. In regions with humid tropical climates, they bloom twice a year, with the first flowering occurring from August to September and the second from January to February. The fruits ripen from June to July and from February to March.

Fun Facts

Andiroba was first described by the French botanist Jean Baptiste Christophle Fuseé Aublet in 1775, in French Guiana, as belonging to the Meliaceae family. The use of Andiroba seeds is quite ancient in the Amazon. From 1854 to 1864, Andiroba oil was extensively used for lighting by residents of the city of Belém, being replaced by gas, and only in 1896 was electricity used during World War I when kerosene was scarce. The use of Andiroba oil for lighting was widespread in the interior of the Amazon. Before Edwin Creek began oil exploration, with the opening of the first well in Oil Creek, Pennsylvania, on 06/27/1859, lighting was done mainly using vegetable and animal oils.

In the 19th century, from 1820 to 1880, the state of Amazonas produced 3000 to 4000 Andiroba trees per year for lighting, candle making, and soap production. Currently, its demand is focused on producing soaps and fine beauty creams as a medicinal product and producing Andiroba candles as a natural insecticide. The industrialization of native oilseeds from the Amazon owes much to the Italian industrial chemist Celestino Pesce (1869-1942), who emigrated to São Paulo and started a small chocolate industry and a distillery for corn oil and alcohol. Coming to the Amazon, he acquired in 1913 the Cametaense industrial factory, founded in 1893 by Father Antônio Ferreira da Silva Franco and Dr. Vergílio de Mendonça, which was mainly dedicated to the extraction of Ucuuba tallow.
