The 'magic skin tree', Tepezcohuite
(Mimosa Tenuiflora) is a thorny tree
with a wide distribution, but it is only in very
localised areas of Chiapas, Mexico (Map
above). Tepezcohuite bark has been used
by the Maya since the 10th century to treat skin lesions. Still
used in the region today, it is particularly effective at healing
burns. In 1984, an explosion of a gas factory in Mexico City left
500 people dead and 5 000 suffering from severe burns. This
overstretched the medical capabilities of the city. They turned
to Tepezcohuite to treat the burns. Its
anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anaesthetic
and epidermal regeneration properties earned it the nickname of
"miracle plant", and it was classified as part of
Mexico's national heritage.
