Schierer Royal Mansour, Marrakech, Morocco
‘A Moroccan hammam consists of a bathhouse with multiple rooms (dry and steamed) for cleaning the body and soul according to traditional ritual performed by another person.’
Sometimes known as ‘Turkish baths’ the Moroccan Hammam is a must do for tourists. The basis of the bathhouses is to relax, relieve your stresses and worries and revive yourself. This cute spa package from Vie Naturals is a token of the Hammam ritual in your own bathroom.
A traditional hammam ritual begins with the application of black soap all over your body. The home spa kit includes this black soap in a handy screw top pot along with a ‘kessa glove’. Its like a big exfoliating mitt. You simply apply the soap, cleansing the skin and making it soft for exfoliation. Then rinse with the help of the glove.
Hammam experiences last anything up to 3 hours, and like most good rituals there are many parts to combine. Next you need to apply the rhassoul clay mask this brings out skin impurities. It is the finest morocco clay, high in silica and magnesium and is used to absorbs toxins and impurities. It smells divine and exfoliation helps with circulation, removing dead skin cells and excess oil.
You can apply the mask using the cute coconut spoon, included in the kit. The spoon is made from the palm of coconut trees. It is advised to use the wooden spoon provided over a metal spoon as the clay has reactive properties.
Last step after rinsing away the clay is to nourish the body. Use the Menara Argan Oil, rich in Vitamin E to soften, hydrate and moisturise the nails, hair and skin.
I love this little indulgent kit. The best part is that it is totally natural, suitable for all skin types, and can be used at home! You can realistically get more than one use from the kit and stock up on items as they get used. For a special treat I love this home spa option, try it with a friend or your partner for a real treat and Moroccan bathhouse feel.
You can buy the kit without leaving the comfort of your warm and cosy sofa by purchasing on Amazon for £18.95.
