Hi , I am Wayan and I will take you on a Bali virtual live herbal tour through the lush jungle surrounding Ubud in Bali. Indonesia has the greatest diversity of herbal medicine anywhere in the world, and through the centuries, we have maintained our ancient and symbiotic relationship with the natural world. It is such an indispensable part of our life and culture.
My family has made their own traditional herbal medicine for centuries, with that knowledge continuously being passed down from generation to generation. Together with my great-grandma, my grandma, and my mother, I have learned how to use the numerous herbs found in nature for traditional medicine and as essential ingredients in our food. We use 90% preventive tea, pastes, and more to prevent diseases and 60% of diseases we do get we can treat with our herbal medicines.
My grandma is well-known in the community and amongst our neighbors for her famous herbal drink 'Loloh' that helps prevent a cold and many other ailments. The special ingredient that makes this remedy standout is turmeric, which reminds me of my childhood drinking this refreshing herbal drink.
We also use moringa leaves or magic leaves that are believed to cleanse the blood. And at the same time to expel evil energy from our houses; by our elders. Usually, we add the moringa leaves to a curry or vegetable soup. It can also be used as 'Boreh', which is a type of skincare scrub that will help preserve the skin.
During this virtual walking tour, you will gain insight into our ancient ancestral techniques and practices of Balinese herbal healing, learn to recognize plans by their medicinal effects, and of course, I will show you how to make our famous family 'Loloh' drink that you can even make yourself at home!More information
