Inspired by our co-founder, Kubin woman Carla McGrath who is leading our botanicals work, we have produced a small batch of moisturising Gumbar Gumbar (Macadamia) Oils.
This pure Macadamia Oil is gently blended with a hint of Kangaroo Paw and Honey Myrtle for a delicious smell. This special blend is packed with Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids which promote skin elasticity and protect against premature ageing. It is designed to be super hydrating, non-greasy, and easily absorbed into your skin.
Replenish your skin today with one of Country's oldest oils.
More about the benefits of using Gumbar Gumbar Oil
As we age, our skin gradually begins to lose its youthful elasticity. One of the major causes is a reduction in the oils our skin naturally produces to moisturise and protect against the elements. Luckily, Palmitoleic acid, one of these vital oils our skin produces, can be found in other sources, and Macadamia oil has the highest concentration of Palmitoleic acid of any botanical source. What better way to maintain your skin’s suppleness and elasticity than by using a natural oil that replicates your body’s own protective barrier.
More about the traditional and modern uses of Gumbar Gumbar Oil
Since time immemorial Bundjalung people have expressed the oil from the nuts and used it as a binder with ochres and clay for face and body painting. This is important for rituals and spiritual connection.
Gumbar Gumbar oil was, and still is, used for skin rejuvenation and as a carrier where it is mixed with other plant extracts to treat ailments.
