Now, an experienced writer has devoted herself to understanding jamu: its history, its applications, and its potential for use outside its native environment. Jamu can be found across a broad spectrum of Indonesian life, from home kitchen pharmacies to the personal traveling kits of multinational CEOs. With jamus reach extending into medicine, massage therapy, and cosmetics, this book chronicles how this holistic practice is used, the materials and ingredients it employs, and its rich background dating back to the ancient Javanese palaces where it was perfected. Author Biography: Susan-Jane Beers is an Asia-based writer for a variety of regional magazines. She researched this book while living in Indonesia from 1990 to 1995 and is committed to demystifying and promoting the use of jamu internationally.
