Quassia General Information
Quassia is also known as bitter wood or bitter ash and is native to the tropical regions of Central and South America and the Caribbean. It contains many of the same anti-malarial phytochemicals as quinine and is used in the same manner as quinine bark in treating digestive problems, malaria, fevers, and dysentery. It has also been used as an insecticide and, due to its properties, works well as a tonic. Quassia has anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory, anti-leukemic, anti-cancer, anti-tumor, anti-viral, astringent, laxative, sedative, blood cleansing, insecticidal, anti-ulcer, and digestive and bile stimulant properties.

In Mexico the bark is used for liver and gallbladder diseases. Quassia leaves are used in a bath for treating measles, or as a mouthwash after tooth extractions.
