Bush Balm Demonstration at Purple House
Indigenous Australians have used native plants to treat illness for generations.
This traditional knowledge inspires the creation of a range of BUSH BALMTM products made from wild harvested medicinal plants expertly collected on Aboriginal Lands in the Western Desert and Alice Springs region of Central Australia.
The Bush Balms were first produced by and for the growing numbers of Indigenous dialysis patients and their families. Forced to leave their country indefinitely for treatment, many longed for traditional bush remedies to remind them of home. And so the Bush Balms were born.
Created by people with an unbroken tradition of Indigenous intellectual and cultural knowledge, Bush Balms are truly made from the heart.
Run by the Purple House, an innovative Indigenous-owned and operated health service based in Alice Springs, this dynamic social enterprise provides employment opportunities for patients and their families.
Join us to learn more about Purple House and the Bush Balm story and observe how our bush medicines are made.
