    • Ceroxylon Bonpl. ex DC.: Además las palmas de cera dan su producto para antorchas y cirios. (…). Su producto se raspa con cuchillos, se funde y se cuela. Se caracteriza por su alto punto de fusión. En Colombia se aplica mucho al alumbrado doméstico y religioso. (…). En salento me informaron que los cerdos comen los frutos de estas palmas y se ceban presto. (Pérez-Arbeláez, E., Plantas útiles de Colombia. 1956)
