Clay & Ochre Scrub – Mamaburra

$21.50

Made from the Mamaburra (Wild Peach) Tree, Mamaburra is traditionally used for sootheing minor skin ailments.

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. We cut the red bark from the tree and boil it. It gives our clays a lovely deep red earthy colour and sometimes we dry the bark and use it in our clays as an exfoliant, along with soft white Kaolin Clay.
