PENGANTEN MELUKAT

Traditionally in the village three days before a wedding day, the bride and groom would be kept in their families' home and could not leave the premises. Their mothers would get them ready for their wedding by doing the Traditional Melukat (Body Cleansing).

The treatment begins with Mewangsul (Traditional Balinese Massage) followed by Meodak (Boreh Body Scrub). Then Empehan (Fresh Milk) would be applied to the skin, leaving it feeling soft and moisturised. The treatment ends with Mersiram Sekar (Floral Bath). This treatment is designed to purify and cleanse the body, mind and spirit.
