Wassalammu’alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh,
Alhamdulillah I know some of the Indonesian traditional herbs for women after having baby or to make women private firm hehehehehe. It’s like generation to generation. These herbs have been used for centuries:
This is for single or married women. After having baby is good or before wedding (but for a single better not too much because it will make women hard to have a baby).
Betel leaf is known very well in Asia continent starting from India to south East Asia. Betel leaf is good to wash or steam women’s private; you can drink it or use it to wash your private.
1. 5 or 6 betel leafs
2. 2cm cinnamon (not powder)
3. 5 or 6 coriander (not powder)
4. 5 or 6 peppercorns
5. 3 glass of water
Boil the entire herb (do not use aluminum pan) from 3 glass water into 1 glass leave. Drink it when it’s warm.
For washing women private or steam:
1. 10 betel leafs
2. plastic jar
3. small plastic chair with hole in the middle
Boiled the betel leafs; you can use it to wash your private when the water little bit warm or if you want to use it as steamer water. Place the betel leaf water into plastic jar and put your small plastic chair and your can sit on your chair (cover your body with sarong for better result). You can feel the difference after that insha Allah.
After labors you can use the above and for better result try this herb:
1. 5 betel leaf
2. 100gram curcuma xanthorriza
3. 75gram curcuma longa linn
4. 400gram tumeric
5. 50gram boesenbergia pandurata (finger root)
6. 10grm dried tamarind
7. Blender machines
9. salt (just little of half tea spoon)
10. 800ml water
Blender herbs from number 1- 6. When finishes add with water and salt, sieves the herb juices .Drink it with honey and fresh lime. You can store the herbs juices in the refrigerator. But u needs to boil it first.
To add your breast milk volume your can boiled 20gm of Boesenberigia pandurata with 2 glass of water. Boiled until the water only 1 glass leave.
Note: herb recipes no 3 can make your fat body after having labor to the normal size very quick. Proven by my family n friends. Especially my friend after having a baby and consumed the above herb juices her body more firm.
Subhana Allah here Karkade known as bunga sepatu, I never knew of its has many benefits, we just know the leafs and flowers good for hair, to make hair thick and dark. We mix it with fresh coconut milk and tamarind. Sis if you like to scrub your skin you can try this, we called it boreh (people know this scrub as Balinese boreh) it is believe to warm the body, relieve arching joints as well as soothe sore muscles also can make your skin smooth.
Clove, cinnamon, rice powder, ginger essential oil if you don’t have ginger essential oil you can use olive oil.
300gr rice powder (soaked the rice over night, drained), then crushed the drained rice together with a table spoon of clove and cinnamon.
Relax your body by adding 3 spoonfuls of boreh powder, with ginger essential oil or olive oil mix with warm water until it becomes a paste. Apply to skin and enjoy its deep warming heat, you may wrap yourself in old sheet or sarong to intensify the warmth. Leave on for 10 minutes and scrub it gently until all boreh is clean from your skin then rinse of with warm water.
If you want more Indonesian traditional body scrub I will share it with you insha Allah.
Note: if you want to make it more warm add little more clove and cinnamon.
