Mimosa bark (Albizia julibrissin) has a rich history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It traditionally has been used to support a healthy stress response and a healthy mood. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is so closely aligned with mood support that, in Chinese, it is known as “happiness” bark and flowers. Mimosa has fernlike leaves, prickly stems and fluffy pink flowers, but it is the bark that is most often used. (The flowers can also be used.)
Modern herbalists and scientific studies have found that Mimosa bark offers antioxidant support, and it is an adaptogen that promotes a healthy response to stress, by supporting the adrenals. It also promotes a calm and normal mood. Mimosa is considered to promote natural regulation of the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis. The herb is often used to promote sleep as well as emotional and mental calmness, and it supports the body’s natural balance (or switch) between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.
