Gulbarn is a unique herb, growing exclusively on Alawa Country where the Alawa people live a culturally rich life.
Gulbarn is part of the myrtle family, and grows prominently around Northern Queensland and north-eastern parts of the Northern Territory. The trees’ sweetly scented leaves are wild harvested by members of the Alawa community.
Sales of Gulbarn support the Alawa Community who rely on wild-harvesting native produce as a source of income and cultural engagement.
Reported to have a similar antioxidant capacity to green tea, Gulbarn is also a great source of calcium and magnesium. Indigenous Australians have long used the leaves for tea, as a steam inhalation, or crushed into an ointment to treat skin conditions. It’s also common to use the leaves in bathwater to help boost immunity.
The leaves are anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, and have been used by Indigenous Australians for years to help fight colds, flus, and soothe upset stomachs.
Gulbarn has a sweet, citrusy, eucalyptus scent and a pleasant fruity taste.
Gulbarn leaves are best enjoyed as a tea.
Simply steep 1 tbs of tea in boiling water for 2 minutes to experience the delicious flavour of the Australian bush and renowned immunity strengthening properties.
