Description 

Indigenous Australians have used native plants to treat illness for generations. The Bush Balms were first produced by and for the growing numbers of Indigenous dialysis patients and their families. Forced to leave their country indefinitely for treatment, many longed for traditional bush remedies to remind them of home. Created by people with an unbroken tradition of Indigenous intellectual and cultural knowledge, Bush Balms are truly made from the heart. Check out this special event to learn more about the medicinal art of Bush Balm.
