Abstract

Herbal plants are ultimate ingredients for jamu. Most of the herbal medicinal plants are found in the market. However, there are also several types of plants cultivated around the house as a complement to the herbal ingredients. The research was conducted in Ngadirgo Village by using qualitative methods. The jamu sellers produce their jamu in small-family business. Although it is included in small industry, jamu is intensively produced every day. On certain days, the jamu seller makes special jamu for specific consumer’s illnesses, so that they need other plant ingredients which is possible not available in the market. In fulfilling these ingredients, the producer utilizes the home yard and gardens around the house to plant the herbs. By planting these plants around the house, the jamu sellers not only obtain benefit economically and get fresh ingredients, but also have implications to the conservation of medicinal plants for the purpose of sustainable use.
