History: The nineteenth century French naturalist and botanist Claudio Gay was one of the first occidentals who described the uses of this little and marvelous fruit.
It is considered one of the three sacred plants of the Mapuche people, together with the winter’s bark or canelo (Drimys winteri), and the chilean laurel (Laurelia sempervirens).The maqui schrub means benevolence and peaceful intention, and it is therefore used to ornament the rehue, the ceremonial altar, during the Mapuche festivities.
