Jamu Spa

From the misty fields of Bali, rice farmers would return to their village homes where they’d apply a hand-crushed spice paste (called ‘boreh’ in the Indonesian language) to their legs and feet, often leaving it on overnight.

Taken internally, ginger also aids in digestion and soothes nausea.
