Andiroba oil is well known in Brazil and widely employed to heal many skin conditions and as a natural insect repellant. The oil is also used in Brazil as a furniture polish that is thought to protect wooden furniture from termites and other wood-chewing insects.

Andiroba wood is soft, yet durable, and much sought by sawmills.
