WELL + GOOD: The Power of Indonesian Jamu Transformed My Skin Into the Glowiest Version of Itself
"The whole point with jamu is that it incorporates energy by having positive intentions and well-wishes—you’re connecting to the concept that intention matters,” says Murdaya. “And if you think about it, that happens elsewhere, too. If someone is serving something to you with positive intentions, like if your mom makes you chicken soup when you’re sick, it will taste or feel better because it feels more meaningful.”
Simply put? “The ingredients heal at the spiritual level, the intentionality heals at the mental, emotional, and spiritual level,” says Murdaya.
