Eastern Brazilwood (Sappanwood)


In stock


The word Brazil comes from the Spanish word ‘Brasa’ meaning embers of glowing coals named after the color of Brazilwood. The history of Brazilwood goes back at least 700 years, though likely much longer. It was first mentioned as a dye source in 1321.

The chemical structure of the primary dye (brazilin), is nearly identical to that in logwood, only lacking a single hydroxyl group.
