Gurạdji Bush Tea for relaxation

50gm 

Traditionally the medicinal and health benefits of the Gurạdji leaves were a valuable part of daily life. From healing or ceremony to maintaining balanced health. 

  • To relieve toothache pain - the leaves were made into an emaciated paste and compacted around the affected tooth. It was also used to relieve pain during tooth evulsion (extraction) coming of age ceremony for young men.
  • To suppress appetite - the leaves were chewed with water to suppress hunger when travelling long distances
  • To relieve upset stomachs, period pain, cramps, headaches and wind - use the directions for brewing as a Sun Tea
  • Made into a compress Gurạdji was used topically to relieve swelling, infection and pain
  • It was smoked for its calming analgesic affects and to relieve anxiety.
  • Importantly Gurạdji was smoked ceremonially for welcoming visitors to Country.

It has a  mild nutty sweet flavour.


How to use

TEAPOT TEA:  "A teaspoon for each person and one for the pot" then add hot (85C) water rather than boiling water which could destroy medicinal properties.  Steep for 5 to 7 minutes and enjoy either hot or cold

SUN TEA:
Brewing Gurạdji as a sun tea is also a fun way to maximise the beneficial compounds. Simply take a handful of leaves and put them in a clear glass jug of 1 litre of water. Leave it in the sun for 4 hours and enjoy the brew.

KOMBUCHA style: (Gurạdji Kombucha)
Unlike many herbal infusions, Gurạdji can be brewed into a fantastic kombucha.  Its high tannins and polyphenols, means Gurạdji brews and ferments perfectly well without the need for black or green tea.

DIETARY FIBRE: Gurạdji can be blended finely or left as is and used on salads, in smoothies or in cooking for its unique insoluble fibre and its benefits to gut health.

BODY FOOD: Wrap leaves in a body cloth and use as a body scrub for soft and rejuvenated skin
