Trichilia dregeana

Trichilia dregeana, commonly known as the Natal Mahogany is a highly ornamental tree that has various medicnal properties. Oil from the seeds is rich in essential fatty acids (palmitic, stearic, oleic and linoleic) and has been shown to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity. It has also been shown to scavenge free radicals more effectively than many other oils on the market. Mafura butter is made from the oil and is a central part of Southern African domestic life and is renowned for its cosmetic and healing properties. It is used on the skin to nourish and revitalize as well as to condition the hair. The butter is also used medicinally to treat rheumatism and heal wounds. We sell these unusual trees in 2 gallon containers while supplies last.
