Albizia julibrissin, mimosa or silk tree is a member of the pea family (Leguminosae or Fabaceae) mostly found in East Asia. . In China, both the bark He-huan-pi (pi means bark) and flowers He-huan-hua (hua means flowers) were adopted as herbal medicines at an early date. The bark appears in a Tang Dynasty work from the year 720. The flowers were first mentioned in a Song Dynasty work from the year 1116. In China the tree is called he-huan which means “enliven the spirit”. Both are used in modern Chinese herbal medicine, a common stock in all Chinese herb shops. The bark is included in prescriptions to “ease the mind” for its mild sedative effects. The flowers are used in prescriptions to treat anxiety, depression and insomnia.
