This brush features a handcrafted handle by Robert Quinn from Brown Mallee Burl, which is a “scrubland vegatation” or “bush” that is common in many parts of Australian wetlands and savannahs. At harvest, the Mallee tree delivers a host of valuable products aside from eucalyptus oil, such as activated charcoal (the most important component of most of the world’s air and water filters). Beginning with Aboriginal people who used eucalyptus oil for medicinal purposes, eucalyptus has a long history as a beneficial plant. Early colonists in New South Wales observed this and began to harvest and export the oil in the 1800’s. It was the first export of that colony.
