FIVE STEPS TO PURIFICATION
Deeply cleanse your body while you gently soothe your spirit – create your own spa at home with The Ritual of Hammam.
ULTRA HYDRATING BLACK SOAP
Imagine yourself in a fabulous hammam as you use our soothing black soap. Apply a thin layer all over and rinse off during your shower to thoroughly cleanse the skin.
SEA SALT HOT SCRUB
Experience a deep cleanse with one of our scrubs. Simply layer it on top of the black soap, massage and rinse off. We recommend The Ritual of Hammam hot scrub but you can check out the full scrub collection here.
PURIFYING BODY MUD
Massage a thin layer of body mud onto damp skin, allow to absorb for two minutes and then rinse off. It contains powerful antioxidants to help prevent skin ageing and rhassoul clay for deep cleansing.
FOAMING SHOWER GEL
Refresh and revitalise your skin with our foaming shower gel. Squeeze a small amount of gel into the palm of your hand, massage it onto skin and watch as it transforms into a foamy, fragrant sensation.
WHIPPED BODY CREAM
Hydrate and protect your skin with The Ritual of Hammam body cream. Intensely moisturising and easily absorbed, apply it liberally and massage gently into the skin to complete your Hammam experience.
Aside from being a perfect opportunity to be alone and meditate on the experiences of the day, partaking in a daily bathing routine has undeniable health benefits. We suggest you start filling up the tub with warm water and a gorgeous fragrance, light some candles and let the healing begin.
