About this product
The ladies at Bush Medijina pick Dumburumba (Native Sandalwood) leaves to make their much-loved Skin Sanity and Soothe balm. Traditionally Dumburumba is used for treating sores, cuts, stings and skin rashes. This balm comes with Coconut Oil base and can be rubbed on the body in areas as needed or used as a general body balm.
The practice of traditional bush medicine is being wonderfully preserved in the products of Bush Medijina, made by the Warnindilyakwa women of the Groote Eylandt Archipelago in the Northern Territory.
Run by the not-for-profit organization ASAC, seven full-time Indigenous women do everything from collecting the bush medicine to making, packaging and shipping the products. All profits are fed back into community programs for Indigenous women which promote respect, culture, education and wellness.
