Hammam Jasmine rose rhassoul clay by Red Flower
Hammam is the Middle Eastern variant of a steam bath, which can be categorized as a wet relative of the sauna. The first hammams originated in Arabia, and bath culture was a central part of Roman life.
Rhassoul or Ghassoul is a natural mineral clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of North Africa since the eighth century. It is combined with water to clean the body and has been used by North African women for centuries to care for their skin and hair.
Rhassoul is derived from the arabic word "rassala" for washing and has been an essential part of the hammam therapeutic treatment for more than fourteen centuries. On a warm heated stone, bathers will mix powdered rhassoul clay with warm water and blend it into the hair, face, neck and body. heat penetrates deeply, encouraging perspiration to release toxins from the skin and organ systems. clay binds with these impurities and draws them deep from within. the bather then rinses the clay away with several basins of steamy hot water poured over the top of the head.
This is what I use and my Hair and Skin are thankful.
