Tucker Bush Native Lemon Grass was grown and packaged at our headquarters located in the Perth Hills on Whadjuk Noongar country. This aromatic native herb was nurtured under the plant’s ideal growing conditions, and fed the very same organic nutrients we recommend to backyard gardeners. We know exactly what has been sprayed on these plants — nothing!
We launched our line of native herb products to help introduce traditional bush food flavours to modern Australian cuisine. Part proceeds from every packet sold help fund the Tucker Bush Schools Program, cultivating a new generation of plant-loving Aussies with awareness and respect for this country’s unique natural treasures.
Native Lemon Grass (Cymbopogon ambiguous) is one of 1,300 different types of Australian grasses. This species is found widely throughout Australia except in the cool temperate regions. Research from Griffith University in New South Wales has confirmed that compounds found in Native Lemongrass is comparable to aspirin in its effectiveness at treating headaches and inflammation.
Tucker Bush acknowledges the wisdom and knowledge of Aboriginal Elders both past and present, acknowledges the custodians of the land upon which our organisation operates, and pays respects to the Aboriginal communities of today.
