Bali has a long tradition of Bali Usada, also known as Balinese traditional healing. This practice uses natural herbs and spices, holistic therapies and ancient wisdom to cure physical and mental illness. The Balinese live equally in two worlds: the seen or conscious world called sekala, and the unseen or psychic world, called niskala. In traditional Balinese healing, both of these elements are addressed in order to truly heal an ill patient. The rich Balinese culture includes a wealth of information on herbal remedies, massage and energy healing, customs that continue to thrive today. The lush Indonesian landscape produces a wide range of herbal medicines known as 'jamu', and the Balinese still consult Balians – traditional Balinese healers who work with divine energy. This respect for alternative healing modalities attracts and impressive number of leading international holistic healers, many of whom have settled in Bali to run their own practices.

Herbal Walks Through the Ricefields



Lilir and Westi are both qualified guides for unique tours of Ubud’s rice fields and ravines, which introduce the visitor to a wealth of natural remedies growing by the wayside. Ni Wayan Lilir was born at home in 1972 near Ubud and I Made Westi was born in Mambal, Badung in 1973.


their Mother and Father were both Balinese healers and farmer who have passed on to their children their knowledge, natural love and understanding of traditional herbalism


Knowledge of Balinese traditional herbal medicine came to us naturally through our families. We have also studied the Usada Bali, one of the traditional Balinese Books of Healing, and have spent a tremendous amount of time in the field studying Balinese plants and using them in our daily lives.


A young couple have committed themselves to help keep the tradition of Obat Asli Bali alive. Westi and Lilir met at a guiding course and quickly discovered they had a garden of things in common. Lilir's parent’s were healers and herbalists and relied heavily on traditional remedies for their brood of 11 children.




Westi's parents were farmers who remembered how much healthier the soil was before chemical farming. They were both inspired to use their position as guides to help preserve Bali's unique indigenous heritage.


Westi became deeply involved in qualifying himself to teach others about Bali's living pharmacy.  "I became interested in herbal remedies," he says. "My father was quite knowledgeable and I spent time learning from him before he died. Now I study with three traditional healers, but they are also very old. There is a real danger that this wisdom will die out if it is not recorded."


With the help of Melanie Templar, in 1997 Utama Spice was established. The company directly employs 15 staff and about 15 others indirectly.  "Utama Spice is a fair trade company," says Melanie. "This means living and working together harmoniously by caring for each other, our planet and its resources. We've done a lot of research to ensure our products contain no chemical additives."


Their range includes; a massage oil made according to traditional Balinese methods, a natural insect repellent, candles made from coconut wax and tree resins, bath and massage salts based on sea salt with plant extracts, body scrubs made with local healing tubers and many more products for home and spa.
