Nambarra Bush Rub Produced By The Yirralka Rangers From The Laynhapuy Indigenous Protected Area
Nambarra (paperbark tree) are traditionally used by the Yolgnu to treat coughs and flus. Oils from these plants have been combined with soothing ingredients to make a healing balm that can be rubbed directly onto the body. Choose from rubs containing Nambarra to soothe colds and flu, Gadayka to treat skin irritations or Butjirinaning to treat sores and infections.
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) Gadayka (eucalyptus tetrodonta) Butjirinaning leaves (litsea glutinosa)
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.
