Metanding: Making Offering

In Balinese culture, metanding is an activity that involves the arrangement of various offering materials to create a unified and integral set of offerings known as "banten".

Balinese Boreh is a traditional remedy that dates back centuries and originated among rice farmers. It consists of a mix of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, rice powder, and other spices, forming an aromatic paste. Farmers would apply Boreh to their head and abdomen after a day of working in the rice fields, stimulating blood circulation and soothing tired muscles. This practice reflects the Balinese culture's emphasis on natural remedies for well-being and rejuvenation.
