Abstract: Four senior Yuendumu women show us how to find several plants to prepare a bush medicine mixture. They cut them up and boil them together. 'It has a really strong smell. It smells lovely and is really good for your cold.' They also show how to use marningiji spines to pierce boils, and take them away like 'magic'.
