The Mimosa tree has been used by indigenous groups for centuries. The Aztecs used the MHRB to treat skin burns and wounds, as well as to make tea. Mimosa Hostilis Mexico is also an excellent body paint or natural coloring agent for textiles. This tree has played a major role in the traditions of different indigenous tribes in both South, Central and North America.
Mimosa Hostilis is a bushy tree that is indigenous in large parts of South America. The species grows in regions as far north as Mexico, but are most commonly found in the tropical lowlands (up to 1000 meters above sea level). You will find the tree mostly in Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. The tree can reach up to 8 meters and produces beautiful white flowers and greenpods with seeds.
Recent scientific studies have shown that Mimosa Hostilis has strong antifungal and antibacterial properties and can play a large role in the regeneration of human skin cells. Scientists are looking at the possibility of having Mimosa Hostilis processed into films that can be applied to the skin for faster regeneration after wounds or burns have occurred. These regenerative effects are also one of the reasons that you see Mimosa root bark in an increasing number of skin cremes and other cosmetic products.
