Babassu: Babassu oil or cusi oil is a clear light yellow vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the babassu palm (Attalea speciosa), which grows in the Amazon region of South America. It is a non-drying oil used in food, cleaners and skin products. This oil has properties similar to coconut oil and is used in much the same context. It is increasingly being used as a substitute for coconut oil. (Wikipediia)

Manioc: Manihot esculenta (commonly called cassava Brazilian arrowroot, manioc, tapioca, and yuca) is a woody shrub native to South America of the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. It is extensively cultivated as an annual crop in tropical and subtropical regions for its edible starchy tuberous root, a major source of carbohydrates. (Wikipedia)

Oiticica: Oiticica oil is a light yellow drying oil expressed from the seeds of the oiticica tree, used as a vehicle for paints, varnishes, etc. (

Timbó: Use of plant extracts and powdered plant parts as insecticides goes back at least as far as the Roman Empire. Around 1850 a new plant insecticide known as rotenone was introduced. It is obtained from the roots of plants called timbó. (University of Minnesota)
