Mamaburra Clay and Ochre Scrub
Mamaburra (wild peach) trees are plentiful on Groote Eylandt and provide the islanders with fruit for eating, as well as a bark known to their ancestors for its calming properties. Bush Medijina's Mamaburra Clay and Ochre Scrub combine the plant’s extract with an oatmeal soap base, soft white kaolin clay, and their own, richly coloured Eylandt ochres. Perfect for cleansing and exfoliating, its organic peppermint oil will uplift and revitalise.
Mamaburra (wild peach)
Mamaburra trees grow in the bush, and are loved for their fruit, and their usefulness in soothing the skin. These trees grow abundantly on Groote Eylandt, and in addition to their use in traditional recipes, elders use the inner bark to repair cracks and holes in their canoes. The rich red colour of the bark gives many of Bush Medijina's products their ruddy colour, reflecting the palette of the land. The dried bark is also used as an exfoliant in their scrubs.
