With a history that dates back over 1000 years, JAMU is herbal medicine, originally reserved exclusively for the royal families, on the island of Java. Since then, various versions of the healing herbal infusion spread throughout Indonesia and other parts of South-East Asia. JAMU means “healing through herbs, flowers, and roots” and it carries multiple similarities to Ayurveda in India or Traditional Chinese Medicine. It focuses on a healthy mind and body as well as inner and outer beauty. The recipes, created from a variety of herbs and roots, are passed down for generations.
