In this episode of “In the Name of Beauty,” we head to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to try Mandi Bunga. Mandi Bunga is a traditional special floral bath practiced in a variety of different Southeast Asian cultures. The ritual itself is supposed to clear the body of negative energy and bring good fortune. Often, a woman seeking a life partner will engage in the practice of Mandi Bunga because it is said to help her attract a mate.
This rare flower bath is typically comprised of seven different types of flowers and kaffir lime. When Mandi Bunga is practiced for spiritual purposes, a bomoh, which is a Malaysian shaman or medicine man, will oversee the entire ritual. The ceremony can include incantations and prayers.
Go behind the scenes with us and experience the incredible ritual of Mandi Bunga in this episode. Watch until the end for an unlikely experience that happened during the bath.
