Comments: The paperbark is one of the most important plants for Nyungar. Bark can be used to make a vessel, for roofing mia-mia (shelter), as padding, as a torch once lit, and for sanitary purposes. The leaves can be used for medicinal purposes: sucked, chewed or crushed and inhaled for head colds or flu. The green leaves can also be used for smoking ceremonies. A type of tea can be made by soaking leaves in boiling water.
