Bali, considered the Dream Island of all vacations, is famous not only for its tropical paradise provided by nature, but also for the traditional therapies with a powerful healing and rejuvenation effect for your body and soul.
The rich balinese culture includes a variety of natural remedies equally appreciated by the natives of the island as well as the tourists.
The generous nature of the island offers plenty of herbs called “Jamu” that the Balians, the traditional healers of this tropical island, recommend for health and beauty.
In every balinese house there is a small „NATURAL PHARMACY„which does not lack the most used herbs for health and beauty. Various healing remedies are made from leaves, flowers and roots, either as a beverage, such as “loloh”, a mixture of 4 flavors: spicy, sour, salty and sweet, used for digestion, or “Borah”, a paste obtained from roots used as a body skin purifier.
I chose three plants with a miraculous effect on beauty and health from this natural balinese paradise.
Used for centuries as a remedy for complexion, the turmeric is effective in treating acne because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It adjusts the sebum, it is a natural antioxidant and it treats skin pigmentation and redness. You can try to make a mask for your complexion by mixing 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder with yogurt until you optain a paste. Apply on your clean face for 10 minutes, rinse with water and apply a moisturizer that suits you skin.
Known as the plumeria, the frangipani flower is sacred in Bali. It is said that it facilitates peace of mind and relaxation. Frangipani offers more than just a divine aroma, it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. You can use the frangipani oil instead of the moisturizing and skin regeneration cream.
3. Coconut oil
The coconut oil is one of the most used natural ingredients for skin and hair. It moisturizes and softens the skin and makes your hair silky. It’s not greasy, easily penetrates the skin and has an anti-inflammatory role. This multi tasking oil should not miss from any woman’s beauty arsenal.
