Hammam - an Oriental spa ritual for cleansing the skin.
Pursing with a bag and washing with natural soap is a traditional oriental body cleansing procedure that removes dead cells, stimulates and improves blood circulation and leaves skin soft and supple.
What a wonderful way to detoxify and improve your blood circulation! A special kind of healing mud called rhassoul enriched with herbal extracts is gently massaged into your body in a room with high temperature. Following a gentle body rinse, an additional massage with extracts of herbal oil relaxes the entire body and delights the senses.
From deep within the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, clay Ghassoul (today known more as Rhassoul) originated as a name of Arabic (ghassala) and means "to wash." Arabic pronunciation of "ghassoul" begins with "ghain", which people speaking English is difficult to pronounce. For this reason, local English-speaking altered the pronunciation of the sound as "ra" and the word changed to "rhassoul". Berber women from more than 1400 years were used it as soap, shampoo and conditioner for skin and later it became known and used by women of the aristocracy of ancient Egypt and Rome. Today, because of its therapeutic qualities Rhassoul is used in prestigious spas and dermatology offices worldwide.
Clay Rhassoul differs from others because of its unique composition. It is a clay - smectite, a type of mineral that retrieves all fats, toxins, impurities and excess body and hormonal system. Only smectite simultaneously absorb and adsorb – it can simultaneously retrieve irrelevance and supply useful. A special clay Rhassoul delivered to the body a rich cocktail of minerals that were not enough, or even the body can not produce. Exactly this re-mineralization makes the clay Rhassoul so valuable and unique.
