I am a proud Kungarakan (NT Finniss River) woman. I have taken inspiration from my Kungarakan, paperbark heritage to create products using natural and simple ingredients. Paperbark was used abundantly in ceremony by the Kungarakan people and it is hoped that my products will evoke the same level of love, care and respect our skin deserves. Paperbark trees like our skin are symbolic and a reflection of our inner beauty.
All of paperbarklove products are made in small batches to ensure authenticity and quality of product. Early mornings, late nights and weekends doing what I love most mixing, filling, cutting, labelling and wrapping all of our products.
What started as a hobby has now taken over one of the kid's bedroom (lucky they had left home) and half of my very supportive husbands shed.
I am blessed with a supportive home and work family and friends who listen to all my ideas good and bad and play an important role in my business by contributing to all my market research.
Paperbarklove acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather and create.
We recognise Indigenous peoples continuing connection to the land, the waters and their culture.
We also pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
