If you have lived in Bali or Indonesia at large, traditional fresh herbs and spices will most likely be a staple in your daily life. Indonesian herbs and spices are used in many ways, from cooking to remedies. Jamu is an Indonesian traditional remedy drink. It is made by mixing combinations of herbs, usually boiled with water and reduced to create a flavorful drink with many health benefits. In the old days, jamu was sold by middle aged ladies carrying a basket on their backs with at least 8 types of concoctions in glass bottles. These ladies were called Ibu Jamu Gendong which literally means the lady that carries jamu on her back. These ladies would walk from morning to late afternoon offering their drinks to construction workers on the street and mothers at home. The most well known type of Jamu is Jamu Kunyit or Turmeric. Turmeric is one of the most healing herbs that prevents many different forms of cancer and is great for bones as it has anti-inflammatory properties.
