Our Best Sellers

These products are hot!

I own and operate a busy café in Gawler S.Aust., and my specialty is gluten free cakes with a very low sugar content. These cakes are often enhanced with Australian Native Food products making then available to the wider community and to those who have dietary issues. The Australian Native Food products gives the cakes a unique flavour with a natural sweetness. I choose to use only the freshest and the best products and I find that the dried berries, powders and teas from Essences of the Australian Bush gives me the quality I need especially when fresh is not available so I can produce my cakes all year round. The proof is in the eating; so come on in and try them.

I have been a qualified chef for twenty years and have just started using Don’s herbs and powders. I find them very easy to use and the range of different products are amazing. I found the gluten free products were very well accepted on my menu.

I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the ‘taste test team’ when new products are trialled using the Australian Native Powders and Dried Berries being produced by Essences from the Australian Bush’. All I can say is Wow! Why haven’t we done much more with these flavour essences. ~ Roy Ledgard ~




I have been using your Gumby Gumby tea & capsules for approximately 10 weeks now and the improvements to my health and well being are bloody amazing. I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and I have toenail and foot fungus and high blood pressure. My feet have improved out of sight. I sleep better and longer and have a lot more energy, plus now I have a more natural diet to help this along. Can’t thank you enough for introducing me to Gumby Gumby; hope you have some more supplies to purchase.

Best regards
