The Give and Take Palm (Chrysophila argentea), it has huge spines

This palm is called the “Give and Take” palm because the palm-fronds provide material to make brooms, however the palms large, pointy thorns can be very painful if you are careless about handling the cutting or if you unwittingly grab a younger specimen by mistake, while walking in the bush.

In either case, you just use your machete to cut off a piece of the palm’s own bark and use it as a poultice to help reduce the pain.
