    RIVERMINT FINE POWDER
    River Mint (or Native Mint) grows in all states of Australia except Western Australia, naturally close to rivers and water. Smells like Spearmint and was also used by Indigenous Australians for medicinal purposes.

    Our NATIF Rivermint powder is grown by an Indigenous community in Southern Australia.
    We are working together to help build supply and demand to support their vision into the future.

    • Phenolic rich compounds have health benefiting properties including anti-inflammatory, anti-hepatitis, and anti-tumour activities.
