The Moroccan Hammam is a traditional ritual that draws its beauty from an ancestral routine. This is a routine almost every Moroccan is still religiously following be it a woman, man or even a child.
In Morocco, you cannot declare yourself clean if you don’t go to the Hammam at least once a week to get rid of the dirt.
Yet the Moroccan Hammam and its rituals serve as well as a weekly social gathering and SPA Rendez-vous everyone can afford.
The Moroccan Hammam is a sauna-like bath, involving dry heat source called “Barma”. This room is the most heated part of the Hammam.
This heat action is meant to open up all the pores of your skin releasing all toxins. However, this traditional bath involves the use of very specific natural ingredients produced only in Morocco which complete perfectly its action. As you lay down in the heat, a lady will envelop your whole body in the black Moroccan soap in a circular motion.
This special soap made of a special mix of olive oil and full macerated olives. Some high-end version contains Argan oil or essential oils like eucalyptus to enhance its cleaning and antibacterial capacity.
This contact of the soap, heat, and open pores will exfoliate the most profound of dead skin.
With the coziness of the heat and the soap, you will feel like in a cocoon. You will wish to stay there forever until you are dragged from your reverie by another lady brandishing a “Kassal” or a Moroccan typical loofah style glove.
Your skin will be vigorously rubbed but FEAR Not! When you will see the amount of dead skin leaving your body you will get this famous impression of never having had a bath in your life before. When you are washed out of these impurities, your skin will be ready then for a heavenly body mask.
It's the so famous Ghassoul envelopment that comes next.
The Ghassoul or a special clay produced only in Morocco is a sort of saponified clay that has origins from the volcanic mountains of the Moyen Atlas.
This clay is one of a kind in making the skin satin soft and gives your body a baby-like touch.
When you think your skin cannot take any more treatment, you will be again massaged from head to toe with a heated concoction of Argan oil and rose water.
As you sip your Moroccan tea at the end of the Hammam, you will feel a blissful aura of beauty surrounding you.
