Bush Balms by Purple House
These Bush Balms were first produced by and for the growing number of Indigenous dialysis patients and their families around Central Australia. Forced to leave their country indefinitely for treatment, many longed for traditional bush remedies to remind them of home.
The Bush Balm social enterprise is run by Purple House, an innovative Indigenous-owned and operated health service based in Alice Springs, Northern Territory that runs 18 remote dialysis clinics and a mobile unit called the Purple Truck. The products provide employment opportunities for patients and their families. Purple House supports ethical and Fair Trade practices, and respects Indigenous knowledge.
