Dumburumba (Native Sandalwood) Soap
Dumburumba, or Native Sandalwood, leaves are wild harvested then blended by hand with organic coconut oil, and fragranced with peppermint oil to create a natural soap which gently cleanses, soothes and refreshes the skin.
Dumburumba is one of the most prized native botanicals on Groote Eylandt, and features heavily in Bush Medijina’s collections. Dumburumba trees are found in the bush and by the beach and the leaves have been traditionally used by elders for centuries to soothe the skin.
Soaps are hand made on Groote Eylandt by the women of Bush Medijina from wild harvested traditional botanicals and organic ingredients. Each soap weighs approximately 125g and measures approximately 6.5 x 6.5 x 2.5 cm.
