Abstract: These women are finding many different food and medicinal plants, as they look for the grass, leaves and herbs needed to prepare a bush medicine rub. They demonstrate how to boil the medicinal plants in oil, strain out the plants, and rub the oil on 'a little girl who was sick; she’s getting better. They used the medicine on her all the time.'
