Ten Indonesian Medicinal Plants: Challenge Open to All HIVE!

in Natural Medicinelast year


We have been LOVING the natural medicine content from Indonesian users on HIVE! From ancestral plants to cooking, to meditation and gardening, we're seeing the BEST Indonesia has to offer on the wellness and plant medicine theme! These challenges are to help spread the word and bring support for Indonesian users of the #naturalmedicine tag and of course the #lotusindonesia tag!

However, this fortnight (until the 17th of May) we're doing something slightly different! You need to choose one of the following ten herbs and write a post about it! We have two sets of HIVE prizes - the first prize of 25 HIVE will be to an Indonesian user only, and the second prize of 15 HIVE will be for non-Indonesians. Depending on quality and amount of entries, we might offer more HIVE. If you are an Indonesian speaker, head over to @lotusindonesia for an Indonesia translation of this post, brought to you by @anggreklestari!
  • Turmeric or Java turmeric (yes, they are different!)
  • Ginger - any variety, but be specific about the one you choose
  • Tamarind
  • Cloves
  • Kaffir Lime
  • Pandan
  • Cummin
  • Galangal
  • Nutmeg
  • One Indonesian plant of YOUR choice


**Please don't simply copy information we can easily search on the internet!!! And try searching via Hive Searcher for other posts about this plant, as we'd love to read something DIFFERENT and unique!
