Balinese people have used traditional medicines and remedies before and after the emergence of modern drugs. Mothers for example would apply boreh medicine to keep their children’s temperature down. Boreh is a composite made of rice and kencur (Kaempforia galanga) chewed by mothers to a mild paste and rubbed on the child feet, back, and forehead in order to warm the youngsters’ bodies.
Mothers also use tree bark of various plants believed to be capable of functioning as medicine. The bark of cermai Phyllanthus acidus, belimbing Averrhoa carambola or Pole tree is frequently useful to maintain health. Similar medicines come out of green leaves for instance of Waru Hisbiscus tiliaceus. For Balinese, economic reasoning has so far gone hand in hand with the traditional drive for many Balinese to choose traditional health treatments.
Ritual bathing in water mixed with flowers or mandi kembang takes place during certain ceremonies or Banyu Pinaruh Day, which immediately precedes the Balinese Hindu New Year holiday of Nyepi (March 26, 2006). It would be of great advantage to the human mind and soul, just because of the fragrance of the flowers. Among the flowers used are Gardenia, Sandat, Jepun, etc., according to the belief of many Balinese mothers.
