The Aztecs already knew about the properties of the Mimosa Hostilis tree before Columbus arrived. Its local Mexican name, Tepezcohuite, is derived from the Aztec ‘tepus-cuahuitl’ or ‘metal tree’, a reference to the tree’s extremely hard wood. This tree has played a major role in the traditions of different indigenous tribes in South, Central and North America.
The fern-like branches have leaves that are Mimosa like, finely pinnate, growing to 5 cm (2.0 in) long. Each compound leaf contains 15–33 pairs of bright green leaflets 5–6 mm (0.20–0.24 in) long. The tree itself grows up to 8 m (26 ft) tall and it can reach 4–5 m (13–16 ft) tall in less than 5 years. The white, fragrant flowers occur in loosely cylindrical spikes 4–8 cm (1.6–3.1 in) long. In the northern hemisphere it blossoms and produces fruit from November to June or July. In the Southern Hemisphere it blooms primarily from September to January. The fruit is brittle and averages 2.5–5 cm (0.98–1.97 in) in length. Each pod contains 4–6 seeds that are oval, flat, light brown and 3–4 mm (0.12–0.16 in) in diameter. There are about 145 seeds/1 g (0.035 oz). In the Southern Hemisphere, the fruit ripens from February to April. The tree's bark is dark brown to gray. It splits lengthwise and the inside is reddish brown.
Mimosa Hostilis is also playing a part in the latest trend for natural clothes dyes. One has only to look at the brilliant colours of mimosa plant soaps to see the range of colours that catch the eye, and are therefore also perfect for fabrics. A lot of people around the world already do this, especially in Mexico and Brazil. All you have to do is add some mimosa hostilis root bark powder to boiling water and add your clothes, and after some time, you will see surprising results, such as cool, vibrant purple and brown shades.
There are a lot of uses of this shrub ranging from the production of fuel to dyeing of fabrics, and it is a valuable food source for animals, especially herbivores, thanks to its high quantity of protein and nutrients.

Not only is this the most beautiful purple dye I’ve ever seen in my life of using this product from other vendors, but they had it shipped to me in 3 days flat all the way from Denmark! Talk about Grade A service.
I had some questions that I called and asked about before placing my order and the person who picked up was very helpful and answered everything I needed with no confusion.
Will definitely be ordering more, the purple it produces is nothing short of beautiful. Thanks Sirius Herbal!

The MHRB came very fast within a few business days. I live in the USA and it got through customs perfectly without any headache. I highly recommend to all family and friends.
Despite some delay, the product came in fast! The quality looks amazing, can’t wait to test them.
Ordered on Thursday, received my package (in the US) on Monday! Item as described. Good communication. Thank you very much.
I think this i both very cheap and good product. came vacuum packed, but no label and no expiration date. Next time I order I hope some of it is labeled, since some things can be mistaken.
The product is excellent and I received excellent service. The shipping was very fast, and I would recommend the product and distributor to others without hesitation.
