Healing lady

Jamu ladies can be seen everywhere in Java. Jamu ladies practice traditional herbal medicine with recipes handed down from generation to generation. Roots, leaves, grasses, stalks, tree barks are mixed together, steamed, boiled to produce liquids used for all kind of treatments. Some may even bring relief to this worker from Sunda Kelapa after long hours of working in the harbor.
