Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark is a well known entheogen used for shamanic healing throughout the world containing up to 1%-2% DMT (dimethyltryptamine). It is also known as Jurema, Vinho de Jurema, Jurema Preta or Jurema Negra.
Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark is also the most popular natural pigment in the world currently used for arts and crafts including tie dye.
Although the uses of Mimosa Hostilis root bark are well known, many people are not aware of the amazing natural healing properties and benefits of Mimosa Hostilis stem bark.
Mimosa Hostilis (also known as Mimosa Tenuiflora) is an evergreen perennial tree or shrub that 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 that makes it one of the best-known natural blood coagulants. Tannins act as an astringent that stops the skin from bleeding and forms new tissue, as well as being a natural anti-inflammatory that facilitates healing.
The “miraculous” benefits of powdered tepezcohuite skin bark are currently being studied in universities and private laboratories around the world for their healing effects on burns, scars, and other chronic skin conditions.
There is evidence that tepezcohuite’s ability to protect and stimulate collagen is the key to its remarkable ability to heal the most severe burns in a matter of weeks with virtually no visible scarring at the end of the natural healing process. Tepezcohuite acts as an all-in-one cure as it is as strong as any known natural antibiotic in killing the infection while also acting as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Today, tepezcohuite powder is the main ingredient in hundreds of wellness products around the world, 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 drunk as a tea to treat pain, respiratory ailments, and even to help eliminate withdrawal symptoms during detoxification from cigarettes, alcohol, and hard drugs like cocaine and heroin.
In Brazil, Jurema is a source of forage and fodder for cows, goats, sheep and other animals that eat the pods and leaves of the plants that are rich in protein and nutrients that can also sustain humans in case they get lost in nature and go hungry.
