Mimosa Tenuiflora Mimosa tenuiflora
Location: MexicoKnown as the "skin tree" of theMayas, Mimosa Tenuiflora is a shrub found on a narrow strip of land located at an altitude of 800 - 1000 m in the Mexican state of Chiapas. According to Indian tradition, the powder obtained from the bark helps to heal wounds. The Mexican earthquake of 1985 and the shortage of medicine that followed brought this special tree's therapeutic benefits back into the spotlight. It is now officially recognized as part of the country's national heritage and for its exceptional capacity to restore damaged epidermis.
