Home to our Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark is Bahia in the Northeast Region of Brazil, where it is growing in its natural habitat. The Region is widely recognized for its history and culture, but also for its beautiful natural sights and hot weather. A hot dry winter and a cold rainy summer make a perfect combination for our Mimosas. Oh, and people in Brazil call it “Jurema” or “Jurema Preta”.

Answering right away the most frequent question: No, harvesting is not harmful to Mimosa trees and their population. Our suppliers are people of those places. They are very caring, farmers who love and feel nature in every expression. We have an agreement with them on the purpose to make the world a kinder place.
Our suppliers of Mimosa Root Bark carefully select only the adult trees for harvesting. The knowledge and experience help them to take the exact amount from a tree without harming it, which also allows influencing the quality of a final product.
After the picking of the best Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark, it goes drying, of course, the same day. There is a preservation of active ingredients by processing Mimosa indoors to avoid the devastating effect of the sun’s UV rays as well as extra moisture in a product. Further, already dried Jurema is divided into parts: one goes for processing into powder, the other for the shredded finish.
