Used by Aboriginal people of Central Australia to relieve arthritis, muscle & joint inflammation, cramps, bruises & headaches.

Also used to sooth cold and flu symptoms.

All Australian Ingredients: Olive oil, wild harvested Irmangka Irmangka (Eremophila Alternafolia) and beeswax.

Indigenous Australians have used native plants to treat common ailments and illnesses for thousands of years. Their traditional knowledge inspires these Bush Balm® products, which are made from wild harvested medicinal plants expertly collected on Aboriginal Lands in Central Australia. Irmangka irmangka, Yawirriyawirri and Arrethe have been used for generations to treat aches, muscle pain, joint inflammation, skin conditions and to ease cold and flu symptoms.

The Bush Balm® rubs, moisturisers, soaps and lip balms were first produced by and for the growing number of Indigenous dialysis patients and their families around Central Australia. Forced to leave their country indefinitely for treatment, many longed for traditional bush remedies to remind them of home. And so the Bush Balms® were born.

The Bush Balm® social enterprise is run by Purple House, an innovative Indigenous-owned and operated health service based in Alice Springs in the Northern Territory that runs 18 remote dialysis clinics and a mobile unit called the Purple Truck. The products provide employment opportunities for patients and their families. Our organisation supports ethical, fair trade practices and respects Indigenous intellectual and cultural knowledge.

Xmas fun

My package from Welcome to Country arrived beautifully packed (especially the Xmas baubles!). It was a mixture of the above, a book by Leah Purcell, some special salt, indigenous design wax wraps and some balm. It has made present choice easier and I can highly recommend this company.

Brilliant and Amazing Cream - It really works

I have arthritis and dodgy knees. Since purchasing this cream I have not taken an anti inflammatory for my knee. Normally I know that if I do not take my tablet before going to bed, the next day I become a cripple and in extreme pain.

I now swear by this cream. If my knee is sore prior to going to bed, I rub this natural wonder into my knee and all is good in the morning. I have taken anti inflammatory tablets for years and I was always worried about the effects the medication was going to have on my long term health and stomach. I started taking them in my early 30's, two years to go and the big 50.

I wish I had found this cream sooner and that someone picks it up and markets it to the rest of the world.
