The Aztecs already knew of the Mimosa tree during pre-Columbian times. The name Tepezcohuite, which is now common in Mexico, is derived from the Aztec ‘tepus-cuahuitl’ or ‘metal tree’. That refers to the tree’s extremely hard wood. Mimosa hostilis is also sometimes referred to as Jurema.
For many centuries, the Aztecs and other indigenous groups used the inner Rootbark of this tree to treat skin burns and wounds. They also used it to make tea. This tree plays a major role in the traditions of different indigenous tribes in both South, Central and North America. Furthermore, Mimosa hostilis/tenuiflora is an excellent body paint or natural coloring agent for textiles. Our powdered MHRB Brazil gives off an enchanting shade of purple when used as a dye.

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 green pods with seeds.
This species came to the attention of scientists just over 150 years ago, although it was hardly studied until the 1980s. Now, much is known about this tree. Currently, Mimosa hostilis is used throughout the world as the subject of medical, pharmacological, preclinical, and clinical research.
It is especially promising when it comes to skincare and regeneration. According to Laura Elizabeth Valencia-Gómez(2016), Mimosa hostilis has strong antifungal and antibacterial properties and it 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.
