Coconut plays important roles in Balinese life, both spiritually and real life. Literally all aspects of coconut tree are being used by Balinese. Balinese believe coconut is a symbol of life and fertility. A tree of all purposes.

Hello I am Ayu, I am a Balinese woman. The Balinese tradition of natural body treatment and remedies have been introduced by my parents and grand parents since I was small. My grand mother used to make her own blend of body treatments for the family such as skin care, hair treatment, as she got older oil and rub for body warming. She was also made natural tonic drinks to keep her body fit. Later I worked for an Asia wellness company in which the best traditional body treatments were appreciated. This valuable influence taught by grand mother then by my mother, along with the professional approach from my previous work inspired me to make home body care for the family and I want to personally share this precious wisdom to you.

Ngurah & Ayu's courses are a must if you visit Bali! I did the Tempe making and cooking course in the morning and the coconut oil making in the afternoon so it was a full on day. But I enjoyed every minute of it! Ayu and her team of wonderful helpers in the kitchen did a fabulous job at explaining all the ingredients and sharing stories about where they are from and when they are eaten etc. It was a real insight into Bali life and customs. The trip to the Tempe making place was fun too, so fascinating to see how this yummy snack was made, it's definitely not something you could do on your own as these guys are BUSY! The coconut oil making was a delight too and very relaxing, Ayu and her daughter gave me an insight as to where all the ingredients come from and told stories of their own experiences of using them. The family are passionate about their crafts and culture, I felt so welcome in their home and they did a world class job. I highly recommend their courses. You'll even get goodies to take home with you!

Anyone who wants to learn a little more about Balinese culinary culture, should do this workshop. Ayu has prepared everything in great detail and care so that the time in the preparation of 3 types of coconut oil, body scrub and Jamu Tonic is efficient. Everything is shown in such a beautiful way. Ayu is so lovely and her daughter and her sister are helping to make sure we are delighted with those hours of preparation. I highly recommended this experience. 🌴 Thank you for sharing with me part of your beautiful culture. ❤️

This class is a really good overview and a good introduction to Traditional Balinese wellness. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Ayu and family really do embrace you into their lovely home and the table that is laid is superb, you can tell a lot of effort and love goes into it. You get to take home some goodies that you’ve helped make and at the end of it all, you get to sip on the wonderfully, refreshing JAMU that is freshly made, while sitting in the sun, chatting and laughing with Ayu. Well worth the experience and the new friendships formed.
