My favorite part about brunch is the indulgence of bottomless mimosas. The name mimosa also happens to be one my all time favorite botanicals. This beautiful tree with gorgeous flowers is a great mood uplifter and aims to bring a positive outlook to those who use it. Albizia julibrissin is the Latin classification for this herb and its benefits have been used for centuries.
Its healing properties are due to the chemical compounds known as flavonoids tannins, and saponins found in the mimosa bark. These constituents are what give mimosa is antidepressant like properties. For centuries this herb has been used as a sedative to calm the nervous system, ease anxiety and depression, for its adaptogenic properties for stress adaptability, and its antioxidant properties.
Mimosa can be used by people of all ages. It should be avoided in pregnancy as it is a blood mover and can interfere with gestation. If you’re taking any medications be sure to consult your doctor before usage.
So whether you struggle from a depressed mood or just need a pick me up, mimosa is a great choice as tea, capsule, or tincture. #getyousome #eatwellbehealthy
