Mamaburra (Wild Peach) Trees are commonly found on Groote Eylandt and we eat the fruit from the tree. We sometimes bathe ourselves in Mamaburra or rub it on our bodies as it helps us with skin problems.
To make this Mamaburra Soothing bush medicine soap, we cut the red bark from the tree and boil it. It gives our soaps a lovely deep red earthy colour and sometimes we dry the bark and use it in our soaps as an exfoliant. The colour and added fragrant Peppermint Oil (100% Organic) makes this handmade soap a popular favourite.
