Acacia farnesiana, also known as Mealy Wattle, Needle Bush, or Sweet Acacia, is a versatile and aromatic plant with a pantropical distribution, originating from Mexico and Central America. One of its unique features is the numerous thorns along its branches. The plant produces deliciously scented essential oil, Cassie, with a fragrance of violets. The oil is widely used in European perfumery and employed for preparing violet bouquets. A mature plant can produce up to 9 kg of flowers each year. The flowers yield the oil in form of concrete or pomade, used as a perfume or in pomades. In addition to being grown for perfumery, this species is used for erosion control, and the bark and fruit are a source of tannin, used in making dyes and inks, and the woody branches are used in India as toothbrushes. With a life span of 25-50 years and growing up to a height of 8 meters, Acacia farnesiana is a unique and versatile addition to any garden.
