The powder in each 1.8 oz. package comes directly from a native Australian bush plant that grows across the top end of Northern Australia, in the Kimberley region of Australia. Looking like small seeds, the Aboriginal people traditionally would eat both the fruit and seed raw. The sap was roasted and used to treat skin conditions and sores. The bark was boiled, or drunk as a tea to heal cold and flues.
