Sustainably Harvested Rare Mimosa hostilis / tenuiflora – MHRB from a Hidden Valley

We are grateful that we have stumbled upon this incredible new source of Mimosa hostilis. Not from the known places as Mexico or Brazil, but still from South America. We have made a beautiful connection with a local family living in a Mimosa forest. Our local friends let us share this incredible quality of MHRB on condition of full discretion. We are certain that you will be convinced and delighted by the incredible quality and wonderful good vibes or this root bark.

Highly recommended!

We have received some messages asking us why our Mimosa hostilis Hidden Valley one is cheaper than our Brazilian and Mexican mimosa when we state it is our best. We have our own team gathering this mimosa exclusively for us and get a great discount which we pass on to all of our friends happily 🙂 Our Hidden Valley MHRB is often purchased together with these beautiful  MAOI products: B. caapi, B. muricata, P.harmala.


The Aztecs already knew of the Mimosa tree during pre-Columbian times. The name Tepeszohuite, which is now common in Mexico is derived from the Aztec tepus-cuahuitl “metal tree,” a reference to the tree’s extremely hard wood. Until recently it was thought that the Jurema cult had died out, but it is now experiencing a great renaissance.


The tree grows wild in southern Mexico, Central America, Venezuela and Brazil. It thrives best in tropical lowlands but can grow at altitudes of up to 1,000 meters.

Traditional Use

For many centuries, the Aztecs and other indigenous groups used the Mimosa hostilis / tenuiflora root bark, to treat skin burns and wounds. They also used it to make tea. Furthermore, Mimosa tenuiflora /hostilis is 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 South and Central America.

Shipping Mimosa hostilis around the world:

We have been successfully shipping Mimosa hostilis around the world for some years now. However, there are certain, country-specific restrictions to which we must abide.

Legislation dictates that we cannot ship Mimosa products to the following countries:

France (including Overseas Territories of France)

Shipping to the USA:

Although there is no legislation prohibiting the import of Mimosa hostilis into the USA, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has, in recent months, increased the number of checks on packages from the Netherlands. In certain states, orders containing Mimosa hostilis have been seized or returned to sender. In order to minimize the potential of this happening, we have had to change the way that we ship our orders containing Mimosa products to certain states. For the purpose of clarity, we have organized the states into three groups with the following shipping options available:

Group A:

States: AK, CT, DE, HI, ME, MD, MA, NH, NJ, NY, NC, PA, RI, VT, VA, WV

Shipping options: Free shipping, Registered PostNL

Group B:

States: AZ, CA, CO, ID, NV, NM, OR, UT, WA, WY

Shipping options: Free shipping, Registered DHL

Group C:

States: AL, AR, FL, GA, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, ND, OH, OK, SC, SD, TN, TX, WI

Shipping options: DHL Express shipping

We understand that this may significantly increase the cost of orders to states in Group C but we have found that this is the only shipping method to offer normalized delivery rates for orders containing Mimosa products.

We offer two types of shipping

  1. REGISTERED: This comes with tracking and is much faster than our Free shipping.
  2. FREE SHIPPING: For this service no tracking is available. It tends to be half as quick as the registered shipping.
But hey, ... if you're not in a hurry and tracking is not important please feel free to use our reliable free shipping option.
