Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark is also the most popular all natural pigment in the world currently used for arts and crafts including tie dye.
Although the uses of the Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark are very well known, many people do not know about the amazing natural healing properties and benefits of Mimosa Hostilis Stem Bark.
Mimosa Hostilis (also known as Mimosa Tenuiflora) is a perennial evergreen tree or shrub which grows wild in Northeastern Brazil where it is known as Jurema or Jurema Preta and also in Southern Mexico where it is known as Tepezcohuite.
In Mexico, the stem bark of the Tepezcohuite tree has been used by local indigenous tribes for centuries as a miracle cure for everything from infections to inflammation, burns and even influenza, bronchitis and the common cold.
Pulverized tepezcohuite bark contains a very high concentration of tannins which makes it one of the best known natural blood coagulants. The tannins act as an astringent which causes the skin to stop bleeding and form new tissue as well as being a natural anti-inflammatory which facilitates healing.
The ¨miraculous¨ benefits of powdered tepezcohuite skin bark are currently being studied at university and private laboratories all over the world for its healing effects on burns, scars and other chronic skin conditions.
There is evidence tepezcohuite´s ability to both protect and stimulate collagen is the key to its remarkable ability to cure the most severe burns in a matter of weeks leaving virtually no visible scarring at the end of the natural healing process. Tepezcohuite acts as an all in one cure since it is as strong as any known natural antibiotic to kill infection while also acting as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Currently powdered tepezcohuite is the main ingredient in hundreds of wellness products worldwide including shampoos, soaps, lotions and skin creams for acne, herpes, eczema and psoriasis.
Tepezcohuite is a popular herbal remedy in Mexico and Brazil. It is commonly drank as a tea to cure aches, pains, respiratory illnesses and even to assist in eliminating withdrawal symptoms during detoxification from cigarettes, alcohol and hard drugs such as cocaine and heroin.
In Brazil, Jurema is a source of forage and fodder for cows, goats, sheep and other animals which eat the plants pods and leaves which are rich in protein and nutrients which can sustain humans as well should they become lost in the wild and hungry.
