Travel Tips for Strahan

Nature: The Sassafras Tree

by xuessium

People's Park off Risdon Cove is a great place to take a nice walk/hike among nature (weather allowing). A species of tree hiding among the many species in this little pocket of nature is the Sassafras Tree (Sassafras officinale)

The name 'Sassafras,' applied by the Spanish botanist Monardes in the sixteenth century, is said to be a corruption of the Spanish word for saxifrage. The tree stands from 20 to 40 feet high, with many slender branches, and smooth, orange-brown bark. The leaves are broadly oval, alternate, and 3 to 7 inches long. The flowers are small, and of an inconspicuous, greenish yellow colour.

Besides usages in fragrances and cosmetic toiletries, the oil of Sassafras is chiefly used for flavouring purposes - it is employed for flavouring effervescing drinks. Most Americans and Southeast Asians would know it as the more familiar Sarsaparilla or "Sarsi" flavoured candies & beverages. Take a small piece of bark or a piece of leaf and crushed it/rubbed between your palms and smell the lovely aroma of Sassafras oil!
