Euphorbia balsamifera

Also known as "Sweet tabaiba", it is a succulent plant that looks like a real natural bonsai, thanks to its branched, squat and relatively low trunk. In nature, if the climatic conditions are optimal, it is an evergreen plant; on the contrary, in more hostile places, during drought periods, it drops the leaves to reduce the loss of water. Its leaves are long and lanceolate, of a light green color. Its small yellow flowers bloom at the apex of the stems. The populations of the places, where this plant grows spontaneously, are used to using it for the most varied purposes: in agriculture it is used as a hedge, in medicine - as a disinfectant and antidote to insect bites. The sap was formerly used as a poison cover for arrowheads.
