    Is this a flower from a mimosa tree, or the mimosa plant? If from the tree can you use fresh mimosa flowers, or only dried? We have a beautiful mimosa tree in out yard, and I’d love to learn more about their healing properties. Thanks!

      It’s the flower from the mimosa tree and you can use fresh or dried. Main thing is be careful when collecting along side a road where car exhaust can contaminate the flowers. How lucky that you have a mimosa tree in your yard! Thanks for the comment, ~Lana Farson

    This sounds very soothing and tasty. I am beginning to build our own home apothecary and will make sure to keep mimosa flower in stock! Life pressures and stress come and go. I want to make sure I am always prepared to naturally deal with them – sharing this knowledge and concoctions with family and friends.
