Skincare + Bush Medicine
Pamper, heal and restore with our gorgeous signature Indigenous skincare collections from Bush Medijina, Purple House and Kakadu Organics
Indigenous Australians have used native plants to treat common ailments and illnesses for thousands of years. Their traditional knowledge inspires these Bush Balm products, which are made from wild harvested medicinal plants expertly collected on Aboriginal Lands in Central Australia. Irmangka irmangka, Yawirriyawirri and Arrethe have been used for generations to treat aches, muscle pain, joint inflammation, skin conditions and to ease cold & flu symptoms.
These Bush Balm rubs, moisturisers, soaps and lip balms were first produced by and for the growing number of Indigenous dialysis patients and their families around Central Australia. Forced to leave their country indefinitely for treatment, many longed for traditional bush remedies to remind them of home. And so the Bush Balms were born.
Bush Medicine Rub
Seven Emu Station
Seven Emu owner Frank Shadforth has worked the property all his life. The Shadforth family are Garawa Aboriginal people from the Gulf Country. Seven Emu is on traditional lands but Willie Shadforth, a cattle drover and horse trader, worked hard, saved hard, got lucky and bought the station outright – for cash! – in 1953. He was one of the first known Aboriginal people to buy a pastoral lease. Willie passed the property onto his son, and in turn Frank has now handed the management of the farm to his son Clarry while he concentrates on Seven Emu’s guests. Clarry’s children assist him with running the station – its fourth Shadforth generation.
