Botanical Aspects

Pracachy (Pentaclethra macroloba) belongs to the Fabaceae family. In Brazil, it is found on riverbanks, floodplain areas, and some upland areas in the states of Acre, Amazonas, Amapá, Bahia, Pará, and Roraima. The plant is a medium-sized tree, ranging from 8 to 14 meters in height, with fruit in the form of pods, typically measuring 20 to 25 cm in length and containing 4 to 8 seeds. Currently, the seeds are collected from rivers, beaches, and streams, then dried in the sun and stored for commercialization, ensuring no harm to the trees and avoiding cutting them down for oil production, thereby maintaining the forest intact.

Fun Facts

Also known as Mulateiro, Pracachy, Paracaxi, Paroá-caxi, Pashaca Pracachy, Pacuchi, Paranakachy, and paraúacaxy, among other denominations, Pracachy has another significant application in the Amazon region. According to local inhabitants, it is a "sure shot" against the effects of poisoning by two species of animals quite common there: snakes and scorpions. People in the Amazon region use the bark of Pracachy to combat the harmful effects of bites from these animals. They macerate the bark, and the resulting paste is applied as a poultice at the bite site.

It is from the seeds that the precious Pracachy oil is extracted, a separate chapter when talking about the benefits of the species. Pracaxi oil contains the highest concentration of certain acids proven beneficial for the skin and hair. Therefore, it has long been discovered by the cosmetics industry, which manufactures anti-wrinkle products, makeup, and hair products from this raw material.
Studies have confirmed that isolated fractions of Pracachy oil constitute important bioactive compounds with anti-hemorrhagic activity, confirming the use by the riverside peoples of the Amazon of Pracachy oil in bleeding, wound treatment, and healing of post-operative cuts from minor surgeries. It is thus a powerful cell renewer, which has been used in the Amazon for burns and after cesarean sections, aiming to prevent the formation of keloids and spots (it also helps smooth dark spots caused by hormonal changes that frequently occur during pregnancy). It is used in folk medicine against erysipelas, which is a bacterial skin infection, where it cleanses, heals, and revitalizes the skin, fighting inflammation, as well as in dermatitis and psoriasis, where it helps control the uncontrolled growth of skin cells.

Therefore, Pracachy oil is also used in folk medicine, for example, against dermatitis, psoriasis, and erysipelas, a skin infection caused by bacteria. It cleanses, heals, and revitalizes the skin, fighting inflammation. There are records of Pracachy oil being used as an insecticide, notably against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which transmits dengue, yellow fever, chikungunya, and Zika viruses.
