Out of stock
Sustainably harvested dried bark powder from the Galbulimima baccata tree (White Magnolia, Agara, Pigeonberry Ash). Material is dried off-cuts of small stems left over after propagation trials, not unsustainable harvesting of the trunk.
The offered material is for research purposes only and NOT intended for human consumption or application. The plant species from which the material has been harvested has been correctly identified as Galbulimima baccata.
The material we are offering comes from Far North Queensland. No claim is made regarding the chemical make-up of the plant material. It would be ideal and highly appreciated if researchers would let us know the results of their investigations, since more needs to be known about this important species.
Galbulimima baccata (syn. belgraveana) is a beautiful rainforest tree used by tribes in Papua New Guinea with Homalomena spp. to make an intoxicating tea, which leads to visionary dreams. The tree is native to north-eastern Australia, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea and can reach a height of 30m. The tree is also used for its wood and has a good ornamental potential, having dark green leaves with a coppery colour underneath and masses of highly fragrant flowers in spring.
