Highest quality Mimosa hostilis
The Mayas in Mexico have used the Mimosa Hostilis rootbark, (in Mexico known as) "Tepezcohuite" over a thousand years. The "Tepezcohuite" is used for a great variety of purposes, including the treatment of wounds or to make tea from it. Besides that, it goes well as a natural body paint or dye for textile. This tree has also played an important role in the traditions of various indigenous tribes in South-America. In Brazil, for example, this root bark is known as Jurema Preta.
The wood of this tree is one of the strongest and most durable on the market. That's why the pre-Spanish cultures have called it "Tepezcuahuitl". "Tepezcuahuitl" emerges from the words "tepus" (iron) and "cuahuitl" (tree), which refer to the firmness of the wood.
