    What a majestic tree the Brazil nut is. In Brazil its fruit use to be called castanha do Pará or Pará (state) nut. Pará is in the Amazon and a great producer of this yummy food. AmazonDrops sells Brazil nut oil for massage and moisturizing. The oil is also used in several other products manufactured by Amazon Drops including creams and soaps.

Outros alimentos ricos na substância são as nozes.

Brazil nut breaking. Still a pre-industrial task, with Amazonian women doing most of the work. No big, sophisticated machines here. Massage oils, soaps and creams are the main products AmazonDrops manufactures using Brazil nut oil.
