Purple House

Purple House/ Western Desert Dialysis Wellbeing Program is a dynamic social enterprise that acknowledges the importance of culture as an essential element of health and wellbeing and facilitates the practice, preservation and sharing of Aboriginal culture with younger generations and the wider community. Dislocated to Alice Springs from their home communities, dialysis patients experienced a longing for the traditional remedies used in the bush to remind them of home.

Patients and staff of Purple House in Alice Springs would work together to collect the plants to make up bush balms which patients would share with each other to help cope with the sadness they experienced in being separated from their country and family. Developing organically from these simple beginnings the Wellbeing Program has grown into a social enterprise incorporating a range of Bush Balm products and workshops. The program has many objectives including

Generating employment opportunities and income in remote communities
Preserving and sharing traditional knowledge
Generating income to provide services for dialysis patients
Supporting dialysis patients living away from family and country for treatment by providing bush medicine and social and wellbeing activities
Sharing the Western Desert Dialysis story

Indigenous Australians have used native plants to treat common ailments and illnesses for thousands of years. This traditional knowledge of the beneficial qualities of native Australian plants is employed in the Purple House range of Bush Balm products.

Purple House make a variety of eco-friendly, all natural Bush Balm products from native plants collected from Aboriginal lands in the Western Desert and the Alice Springs region of Central Australia. These include Bush Balm rubs, moisturisers, soaps and lip balms.

Purple House supports fair trade practices and respects Indigenous Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Intellectual and Cultural Knowledge.
