‘I am excited and honored to share Bali’s most beloved, natural beauty rituals with you. This collection has been inspired by the coveted beauty treatments that were created long ago by native Indonesians, from Indonesian royalty to Balinese rice farmers, and are used by women all over Indonesia today. I’ve spent three months formulating these eco-luxurious, Bali-inspired products alongside my mentors and Balinese beauty gurus, Ningsih and Wiana. Each product has been crafted in the traditional Balinese method using Organic, local ingredients sourced exclusively on the beautiful island of Bali. From my heart to yours.’ – Elysse
Originally made by the wives of Balinese rice farmers to soothe sore calf muscles, the Boreh treatment has a long history of efficacy in relieving muscle pain, tension, headaches, and stress, and continues to be made and used by families all over the island. With potent, local botanicals such as Balinese Babakan tree bark, ginger root, galangal, and more – the Boreh treatment has become Bali’s very own alternative medicine, offering a variety of wellness benefits. This relaxing, warming body treatment may be applied to the forehead in the event of a headache, to the chest in the case of a fever, or to the extremities/back to relieve sore muscles. Simply add water to a spoonful or more of powder, forming a thin-medium consistency paste, and apply to desired area. Treatment time is ~20 minutes. Remove with warm water or damp cloth.
