Native to North Africa and the Middle East, acacias are spiny shrubs or small trees that prefer dry, sandy regions. Gum acacia is extracted from the stem and contains arabin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. It has traditionally been used both as a curative remedy in itself, as well as a carrier for other agents. Acacia acts as a demulcent which has been used to sheathe inflamed surfaces, internal and external, such as the mucosal linings of the windpipe and digestive tract. Acacia has also been used as an emollient on burns and irritated skin. It can also be used to produce a medium for applying essential oils, balsams, resins, camphor, and musk.
