Our Mimosa Hostilis inner root bark
Our Mimosa Hostilis inner root bark is sourced from a sustainable farm in Brazil, free from pesticides and chemicals. The roots are carefully collected without killing the tree, then the bark is removed and the inner bark seperated, we beleive this to be the most effective part of the plant for skin healing.
The inner root bark is dried at a low temperature to ensure there is no degredation and the product you receive is as full of goodness as if it had come straight off of the tree.
The left over roots and plant material from this process are recycled into wood compost for use in reforestation projects in Brazil.
