Traditional Moroccan Hammam is a steam room where the floor of the hammam diffuses an intense yet pleasurable dry heat.
You can spend 15-30 minutes inside like in a sauna or steam bath. Sweating is a key preparation for a deep cleansing so after 15 minutes of lying down on either a bench or on the hot floor (traditional Moroccan style), the masseuse will apply the authentic black soap all over you as a full body mask. It is a natural vegetable paste made from black olive pulp and oil scented with eucalyptus. This completely softens the skin and prepares it by swelling up dead cells, thus facilitating a deep exfoliation.
