Last Spring I was cleaning out my office and ran across my journal from my month long trip to Bali. I had recently been thinking about a new spa line using exotic ingredients, so when I was reading through my journal and found all my notes on indigenous Balinese ingredients and treatments, I thought “this is so what I’ve been looking for!” It was like coming full circle from where Kokokahn began on my trip to Bali 9 years ago. I chose the name there, which means white heron in Balinese, a sacred, eternal spirit. I also found Balinese names for bath and body treatments in my journal. Susu means milk or cream. Lulur means scrub. Boreh means mask and refers to the traditional mask rice field workers applied at the end of a hard day.
A 1,000 year old tradition for rice field workers is making a paste of clove, ginger, sandalwood, cinnamon and ground rice and applying it to their bodies after a hard days work in the fields. It is especially helpful during the cold and rainy season. The mixture warms the body and soothes tired, achy muscles. I love this story and used it as the basis for our signature Bali spa product line.
There are five products in the line. All made with unrefined, organic ingredients and pure essential oils.
