Originating from Javanese royalty, Mandi Lulur originated in the Indonesian Royal Palaces of Central Java. The name comes from the word 'Mandi' meaning bath and 'Lulur' which refers to flowers in the Indonesian language. This was believed to be the purifying ritual for the princesses of Javanese royalty. The use of a special blend of herbs and spices softened and lightened the skin.
Following this pampering massage ritual, was a scrub and a soak in a warm bath. The bath would be filled with flower petals to make the skin fragrant. This beauty ritual was a staple one for brides to be. It marked a royal way to get the bride ready and glowing for the most important day of her life - her wedding day. The treatment is still chosen by brides even today to get set for their wedding day.
The herbs, spices, minerals and clays used in the paste were all created for the benefit of the royal families back then. The blends of the paste also varied according to local traditions and preferences. At Balima Day Spa, we have created our own beneficial version for the scrub, taking inspiration from the original ingredients used. Our unique blend of herbs and spices eliminates dead skin cells. You can choose from the waist down, waist up or full-body massage.
