African First Aid Remedies locally made for Africans!

Did you know in Africa up to 80% of the population relies on Traditional Medicine for their primary health care needs?

The World Health Organisation states that Traditional Medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health.

At Ubuntu Traditional Balms we are all for embracing different cultures, health beliefs & practices and celebrate our rainbow country. Every culture and community has their own health practice and most often it is recommended by the traditional healer, the Auntie, the elderly. The goal is to make these practices relevant in today's age & most importantly teaching the safe & ethical way in practicing healthcare. Finding the balance between conventional Western Medicine & complimentary medicine remains a challenge, but with the founder's experience of Western Medicine & complimentary medicine Ubuntu Traditional Balms strives to bridge the gap.
