JAMU Organic Spa Rituals Celebrates 25th Anniversary March 25 2018
Founder Kim Collier Announces Upcoming Women’s Retreat, Collaborations and Events in Bali to Reinforce Company’s Mission.
Whitefish, MT (March 2018) – What started as a boutique skin care line for Balinese locals in 1993 has developed into a twenty five year quest for Kim Collier to grow and develop the brand into a multi-faceted company that not only provides unique products and healing services but also celebrates women on a global scale and inspires collaborations with some of the most innovative businesses in wellness. As JAMU Organic Spa Rituals celebrates 25 Years in 2018, it’s evident that this woman-owned business is making its mark in the $3.7 trillion wellness industry — as reported by the Global Wellness Institute.
And to appreciate the present, one must look to the past as Kim and her daughter, Kiara “Asia” Collier literally make the trek back to Bali, Indonesia this spring for an exploratory journey as mother and daughter, and as business colleagues. Asia plans to join the family business, Collier Concepts, along with her older sister Cierra. Part of her training for this career move involves traveling alongside her mom, visiting villages where craftsmen make their wares, taking a dip in sacred hot springs and going on a tour of a Green School in Ubud, Bali. They will take part in treatments at Jamu Traditional Spa and of course, this millennial will be documenting the journey in photos and video – bringing a fresh eye to ancient healing traditions.
Kim Collier plans to immerse herself into the culture this March and April through a series of events, the Bali Spirit Festival and Classes with Ellen Watson and Balinese Massage and JAMU Herbal Traditions classes at Jamu Spa School. Also on the agenda is putting the final touches on a new Women’s Wellness retreat in Bali February/March for 2019. Planning for 5 day program, with 5 practitioners and 20 women joining to participate in study sessions and research that will provide a deeper understanding of traditional healing and the body’s innate wisdom towards self-restoration.
The event is titled “Healing the Divine Feminine” and it will be open to wellness minded travelers and also to practitioners and health professionals who will be able to earn credits toward continuing education. For up to date information on this 2019 retreat, visit www.jamuspa.com.
Kim’s treatments and products have been featured in VOGUE and O, The Oprah Magazine and last year, the savvy entrepreneur announced collaborations with several companies who aim to provide spa treatments with soul, with purpose, and with ancient traditions that are steeped in history and the healing arts of Bali. Those ventures continue in 2018 with Saltability and a contribution to the international advocacy organization, OCEANA, Rainshadow Labs and JAMU Spa School with more exciting partnerships to come centering around herbal and organic body care, and the ever growing cannabis wellness initiatives.
After living in Bali for eight years and becoming immersed in the traditions of their healing practices, Collier turned her love of the culture into an Indonesian-based product line called JAMU in 1993, along with her husband and spa consultant, Cary Collier of Blu Spas Inc. In 1993, JAMU was brought to the United States and has since been recognized as one of the leading product lines by Organic Spa Magazine, Insider’s Guide to Spas, Spirituality and Health, Les Nouvelles esthetiques and Spa, and the Green Spa Network. JAMU changed its name to JAMU Organic Spa Rituals in 2015 to become a more all-encompassing wellness company, providing wisdom as well as products that promote eco-consciousness, planetary healing and global wellness.

Best way to beat jet lag you ask? Jasmine Lulur at Jamu Traditional Spa! 90 minutes of Balinese Massage, turmeric body scrub followed by yoghurt, shower, jamu kunyit asem turmeric tonic and fresh, nutrient-rich island tropical fruits (mangosteen, coconut, and durian). Thankful for some Bali BLISS!
*From March 25 – April 25, 2018, JAMU will have a limited inventory of fresh, small batch, tropical and organic body care. Thank you for your patience and understanding if we are not able to fill your order until after 25th April, upon our return from research and education in Bali, Indonesia.
Happy 25th JAMU + Bali 2018 January 20 2018

What is "merdeka?" ( हर्द्धिक ) -- In the Indonesian language, "merdeka" means "independent or free." It is derived from Sanskrit (हर्द्धिक) meaning "rich, prosperous and powerful," and the call for freedom on the Indonesian Independence Day, August 17th.

Holiday Gratitude! December 12 2016
As my December birthday and holidays roll around, I always get "mushy," and am totally okay with it! Tears and laughter flow, my waist line grows, and my heart is full of so much love!
Getting older (I'm currently in my fifties) and wiser (but not so wise, according to our 17 and 21 year olds), I feel so much gratitude and awe, and just want to thank you for 23 years of supporting JAMU - from Bali to Montana - and allowing me the honor to do what I love, with who I love...you!
May your 2017 be Amazing! Sending you and yours so much love and wishes for a heartwarming holiday season!
In the language of my beloved Indonesia and Bali: "Terimakasih" - I have received your live and return love to you and "OmSuastiAstu" - Peace in your heart and in the world.
Blessings, Peace, and Bali ~ Kim Collier
