Bush medicine has always been a feature of Australian culture. Over thousands of years First Nations people have developed a deep knowledge of the flora and fauna of the continent. Gumby Gumby, Pittosporoum angustifolium, is one such medicine, with many antibacterial, antiviral and antiparasitic properties. Uncle Steve Kemp discusses some of the many benefits of Gumby Gumby and how he uses it to create skin care products and healing aids.
