Blue Tongue Brown

Dreamtime:

According to the Aboriginal dreamtime story, a man was making a dilly bag (an aboriginal bag made out of string from the kurrajong tree). Suddenly he saw a group of men approaching him. These men were his enemies and wanted to kill him. The man was scared and in order to protect himself, he turned into a blue-tongued lizard called kurrih. The lizard then crawled inside this dilly bag to save itself from the enemies. When he did this, the hard string of the bag stuck on his back and his skin became hard. This was the reason that even today blue tongue lizards have harder skin than other reptiles.

Bush Medicine 2 Black

Dreamtime:

Aboriginal people of Australia have identified numerous natural remedies for common sicknesses. In every Aboriginal community across Australia, you could find a ‘Medicine Man’ (doctor) and/or a ‘Spiritual Doctor’. While the Spiritual Man heals the ill by identifying the spiritual discord and by performing a traditional ritual to cease the sickness, the Medicine Man offers the right medicinal plant mixed with animal fats, to the person in need. Animal fats aid in dissolving these medicinal herbs inside the body and helps in speedy recovery.

Native herbs are chosen in the process of healing by the Medicine Man. Some of these herbs are easily found but some are seasonal making them hard to acquire. For this and various other reasons, the Medicine Man is also referred to Bush Clinician. A few of these medicinal formulas were also documented. A few of the bush medicines are Sticky hopbush, Beach bean, Mud, Sand etc.
