Buku Usada: Traditional Balinese Medicinal Plants


“Nature has provided us a solution for our health problems. The only thing required is finding the right plants and using them in such a manner that the active compound can do its job.”

This book about Balinese traditional medicinal plants serves as an effort to disseminate information about various types of medicinal plants collected by Bali Botanical Gardens along with the information on their uses by the people of Bali. The Balinese people have created these recipes for generations and are a leading example for the rest of the world to follow.

Written through collaboration of three authors who worked in Bali Botanical Gardens, under the Indonesian Institute of Sciences, this book gathered information of those ancients plants found in Bali Botanical Gardens as well as their special healing properties.

Besides promoting the medicinal properties found in those plants, this book also elaborates diverse skincare properties from these documented plants in which the cosmetic industry could also benefit.

We hope that it will be interesting not only for researchers and academics, but also for common botany enthusiasts who have an interest in medicinal plants. Furthermore, we hope that more people around the world will be able to find the necessary plants to treat their condition or to develop a new product.

Happy reading!
