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.
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.
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.
Gulbarn has a sweet, citrusy, eucalyptus scent and a pleasant fruity taste.
