Pau D’arco (pronounced pow-darko) (Tabebuia impetiginosa) means “bow tree” in Portuguese, the perfect name because the wood is used to make bows for hunting by the native people of South America.
It is a large tree that is known to reach up to 150 ft tall and 10 ft in diameter. It grows deep in the Amazon rain forest and in the tropical areas of South America.
The Pau D’Arco tree is prized for its strength as lumber and also by the native South American Rainforest medicine men for its health benefits. The true benefits of this tropical tree lies in its inner bark. The inner bark is scraped out and made into an extract, or the inner lining can be used to brew the Pau D’arco into a tea.
