A "lesung jamu" is a traditional mortar and pestle used in Indonesia for grinding and preparing traditional herbal medicines known as "jamu."


Jamus are herbal remedies used for centuries to maintain health and treat various ailments. To prepare jamu, various herbs, roots, spices, and other natural ingredients are placed in the mortar, and then ground into a paste or a liquid concoction.


This process helps release the medicinal properties and flavors of the ingredients, making them easier to consume.


Jamu is known for its holistic and natural approach to health and wellness, and it is still widely consumed in Indonesia for improving digestion, boosting immunity, and addressing specific health issues.
