Natal Mahogany Uses:Monkeys feed on the flowers and baboon and antelope eat fruit. Local people soak seeds in water, which leave behind a milky substance, which is sometimes eaten with spinach. The seeds are also eaten by certain bird species. Oil extracted from the seeds is used cosmetically and also used to help heal bones.  Bark, which has been powdered down, is used as an emetic and an enema and may also be used to make a pinkish dye.

Michael Briza -This large, evergreen has a wide spreading crown which casts dense shade. The handsome leaves are a glossy dark green. The sweet smelling flowers are a creamy green colour and are produced in tight bunches.
