It is a small to medium-sized tree that belongs to the Flacourtiaceae family. Guacatonga has a dense, bushy crown with glossy, oval-shaped leaves that are dark green on the upper surface and pale green on the underside. The tree produces small, inconspicuous flowers that are followed by small, round fruits containing seeds. Guacatonga is known for its traditional medicinal uses among indigenous communities. Various parts of the plant, including the leaves, bark, and roots, are used to prepare herbal remedies. Guacatonga is believed to possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antimicrobial properties. It is often used topically as a poultice or applied as a wash to treat skin conditions such as wounds, burns, and dermatitis.
