"Who knew that starting a product company in a hotel kitchen in Bali, Indonesia, would continue 25 years later still blending in my 'zen product den' preparing intentional, tropical, small-batch herbal and organic body care, made with love from Bali to Montana," Collier told American Spa.

Whitefish, MT (August 2017) – Cultural influences from Southeast Asia are coming to a spa near you — thanks to a new partnership with JAMU & Organic Spa Rituals founder Kim Collier and leading wellness & education companies such as Saltability, JAMU Spa School & Rainshadow. Aiming to bring the Best of Bali and global healing to spas and practitioners around the world, Collier will design spa and wellness experiences based on the rich culture of Balinese traditions and techniques, herbology, meditation, yoga and music. For every spa experience that is created, a charity will benefit. Each spa treatment requires a Give Back component where JAMU & Organic Spa Rituals will donate a portion of the product sale to a specified non-profit that is designated by Collier herself.
“Creating these rituals as standalone services, one of my goals was to collaborate with others, while helping build the bridge between allopathic and holistic healing. Besides offering a one of a kind healing vibe experience in the spa and treatment room, we’re taking it a step higher and helping each other to support the environment, as well as children and veterans,” says Collier, whose work has been featured in VOGUE and O, The Oprah Magazine to name a few.
Some of the charities Collier has pegged for assistance include:
Do It For The Love: a wish granting non-profit organization that shares live music experiences with people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges and wounded veterans.
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. In 1993, JAMU began, with Indonesian partners, and her husband and spa designer, Cary Collier of Collier Concepts and Blu Spas Inc. Today, the spa couple continues to develop wellness strategies and bespoke design and philosophical concepts around the world.
And, this year, Collier is laying the groundwork for future collaborations with companies who are interested in providing spa treatments with soul, with purpose, with ancient traditions that are steeped in history and the healing arts of Bali.
Current collaborations include:
SALTABILITY: Kim designed “Ocean Intention” wellness ritual dedicated to the sacred sea. For the Balinese, the ocean is power in action, and the full moon is the most sacred time to gather ocean water, and offer up prayers for the world. This Himalayan salt stone massage and Balinese meditative healing protocol launches at Little Palm Island in Fall 2017. Charity: OCEANA
Rainshadow Labs: Since 1983, Rainshadow FDA approved lab has helped brand-clients launch thousands of personal care products into the natural and organics skin care marketplace. Kim is delighted to support their introduction to spa and hospitality channel by offering unique protocol designs, DIY private label concepts, and promotion of cannabidiol herb (CBD) therapeutic product line. Charity: DoItForTheLove
JAMU Spa School: Located in Bali, this international CIBTAC certified school is renowned for courses in traditional Indonesian treatments, professional spa classes, and herbal healing. Kim promotes classes at the school, and personally welcomes groups of students each year to enjoy traditions of ‘jamu’ while experiencing Bali, Indonesia with her and friends from around the world. Charity: BumiSehat
