The Moroccan bath, also known as a hammam, is a traditional Middle Eastern spa experience that involves a series of cleansing and relaxation rituals. The procedure typically includes:
Steam Room: The person begins by relaxing in a steam room to open up their pores and prepare the skin for cleansing.
Body Scrub: The next step is a body scrub using black soap and a kessa glove to remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin.
Soaping: The person is then covered in a rich lather made from traditional soaps and the massage begins.
Massage: A relaxing full-body massage follows, using argan oil to nourish the skin.
Rinse: After the massage, the person rinses off in a shower to remove any remaining soap and oil.
Rest: The person is then given time to rest, typically on a heated stone platform, to allow their skin to absorb the nourishing oils.
The Moroccan bath is a luxurious spa experience that not only cleanses the body but also provides a deep sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.

The Turkish bath, also known as a hamam, is a place of relaxation, rejuvenation, and cultural tradition. Stepping inside a hamam, one is greeted by a warm, humid atmosphere, and the soothing sound of trickling water. The main room is dominated by a large central stone platform, known as the "göbek taşı," which serves as a place to recline and soak in the heat. Bathers will often work up a lather with traditional soaps and scrubs, scrubbing away dirt and dead skin to reveal refreshed, glowing skin. The heat and steam of the hamam help to open the pores, allowing the body to release toxins and leaving the skin feeling silky and smooth. The hamam is not just a place for physical cleansing, but also for spiritual renewal. It is a space to escape the chaos of daily life and connect with the ancient rituals of Ottoman culture. The Turkish bath is a sensory journey that leaves its visitors feeling refreshed, relaxed, and reinvigorated.
