Saltbush.

Description.

Saltbush has been used by the native Aborigines of Australia for centuries for both culinary and medicinal purposes. The indigenous people collected the seeds to roast and grind for adding to damper, a traditional bush bread cooked over an open fire. They used the ashes of the burnt leaves like baking soda and ground the seeds as a flour substitute. Leaves were used as a poultice for burns or wounds. Saltbush has been used as grazing fodder for sheep and cattle by both natives and settlers.

The Aboriginal people have a deep connection to the land and nature, and this is reflected in the use of saltbushes in their culture. These resilient and hardy plants can be found growing in arid regions throughout Australia. The delicate leaves and branches of the saltbush create a soft, subtle texture that is both earthy and ethereal. The muted blue and gray tones of the plant are reminiscent of the rugged and vast landscapes in which it thrives.

To the Aboriginal people, saltbushes are a symbol of resilience, strength, and connection to the land. They embody the spirit of the people who have inhabited this ancient continent for tens of thousands of years, and continue to inspire and captivate all those who come into contact with them.
