    Ingredients

    Wild harvested from the rocky hills and floodplain habitats around Alice Springs.
    Senior Arrernte women harvest the leaves and stems of three plants. The Eremophila (emu bush, red poverty bush and rock fushsia bush), shrubs and use traditional grinding methods to extract the oils from these plants. The River Red Gum oil is extracted and added into the hand made soaps.
    Younger Arrernte staff work out at the laboratory to mix these extracts with various plant oils and beeswax to make the bush rubs, body oils and soaps along with lip balms to make up their range of Interrentye body products.
