Andiroba Oil is pressed from the kernels of the andiroba tree, a tall tree native to Brazil and regions of the Amazon. The andiroba tree resembles a chestnut tree. If ingested, the kernels and bark of the andiroba tree, including its nutritive oil, are bitter in taste. In its native language of Guarani, Nahandi is reported to mean oil, and roba is means sour.

Comments: Your Andiroba Oil is better than any I've used in the USA. It doesn't have the objectionable smell that others have. I highly recommend Andiroba Oil for arthritis and pain management.

Comments: Goes on a bit heavy and tends to sit on top of the skin a while. Has a light, woody scent. Using small percentage in acne formulation, and it's working wonderfully so far.

Customer Testimonial

"I have never written a thank you to a company before, but I just had to let you know that I am impressed with the items I received and the extreme speed in which I received them. It only took 2 days to receive my order from FNWL. That's amazing and is certainly a plus when trying to run my business. To compare, I placed an order with a different supplier 2 days before I placed my FNWL order. I received my FNWL order 5 days ago, but am still waiting to receive my order from the other supplier. Thank you."
