TheStory: Many natural plants have healing qualities in the leaves, sap, bark, flowers and/or roots. When in season, these are picked, crushed, boiled and the steam is collected. Sometimes the leaves can be squeezed for juice. The liquid is mixed with the fat from a goanna or kangaroo, and the ointment used for everything from cuts to aches. With no need for written language until recently, the knowledge of where to find the certain types of trees, barks, flowers and bulbs has been passed down over many centuries through ceremony and song.
