Fun facts: Annatto is traditionally used as an internal detoxifier. It was used as ink for ancient Aztec scrolls and is still used to dye cloth and body paint. The Tsáchila tribesmen of Ecuador dye the top portion of their hair on otherwise shaved heads with Annatto powder paste. This practice began when a shaman was led by spirit to use Annatto as whole body dye as an antidote to smallpox. At the time, however, the Spanish referred to these men as Colorados, which means “red-colored,” because they thought that was the true skin color of the indigenous people.
