The Bush Product program began in 2011, with the miyalk (female) rangers using their traditional Yolgnu healing methods to utilise local native flora in a variety of personal care products.
All of our bush products are hand crafted using the most beneficial botanical ingredients. Our product range includes bush body scrub, body rub, soap and lip balm.
The native plants we use in our products include:
- Nambarra (Melaleuca dealbata)BenefitsNambarra (paperbark tree) is traditionally used by the Yolgnu to treat coughs and flus.’
- Gadayka (Eucalyptus tetrodonta)BenefitsGadayka is a stringy bark tree that is traditionally used by Yolngu to treat skin rashes and irritations.’
- Butjirinaning leaves (Litsea glutinosa)BenefitsButjirinaning is a large monsoon vine forest tree that is traditionally used by Yolngu to treat sores of the skin and muscle cramps.
To date, our products have been sold at various festivals and markets across the NT including the Garma Festival and markets at Nhulunbuy and Darwin. More recently, we’ve supplied our products for corporate event party bags as well as for individual use or gifts.
