A day of furthering my botanical education into the world of Balinese medicinal plants…..

When I visited the Balinese healer Pak Ketut Jaya, I was enormously intrigued by all the herbal remedies in his healing room. On our day out to the water temple I discovered a bit more about his extensive knowledge of plant medicine, and he kept saying “oh yes I have that growing in my garden”.

Plant medicine, herbs and healing foods is not only my day job back in my normal life, it’s also one of my most favourite things to do, to learn more about the medicinal properties of mother nature’s apothecary. So I was delighted to take up the invitation to go around to Ketut’s house again and have a tour of his healing garden.

Pak Ketut Jaya makes herbal preparations, such as Herbal Tinctures, Herbal Teas, Balinese Boreh, which is ground herbs and roots made into a rub for the skin, fermented foods, Jahmu, which is a herbal medicine drink, and Loloh, which is fresh leaves crushed and mixed with water to drink. All of the herbs are collected from his garden which is loaded with medicinal plants, that serve him in his work as a healer. He also adds the herbs to his sauna so the aromatic properties can be ingested through the respiratory system… see the full blog at :- www.chroniclesofclara.blog/2019/02/16/exploring-the-balinese-medicinal-garden
