Ocotea is extracted from the stem and leaves of the Ocotea quixos tree in Ecuador and has natural cleansing and purifying properties. It has a warm, spicy scent, much milder than cinnamon, but can be used in cooking in similar ways.
It also contains natural properties that are beneficial to the skin.
