Ocotea odorifera is a species of plant in the Lauraceae family. It is an evergreen tree in the Ocotea genus. It is found in possibly Argentina, Brazil, and possibly Paraguay. It is threatened by habitat loss.
It is commonly known as Brazilian sassafras or American cinnamon; though it is not a true sassafras nor a true cinnamon, these plants are close relatives. In trade, the junior synonym Ocotea pretiosa is often used, and there is considerable confusion between the present taxon and Ocotea cymbarum.
