Happy New Year!
I was blessed to wake up on the first day of the 2018 in one of my favorite cites, Marrakech. I am so ready for this new year, I have left all the worries of last year behind. I even have a new skin!!
As luck would have it (the universe) I made a spa appointment this morning. I decided I would do the Hammam Ritual, which is famous all over Morroco. This ritual includes going in hot steam bath and being cleansed with black soap, after your entire body is scrubbed with a black exfoliating glove.
Let me tell you… With each swipe of the glove I felt the dead skin fall from my body. I felt lighter, freer, and not to mention I had the skin of a newborn baby. Once she had thoroughly and completely rid me of all my dead (weight) skin. She cleansed my skin with a fragrant oil. It was truly intoxicating; the smell, being enveloped in the steam and just being able to be alone with my thoughts on this first day of the new year. Next, she washed me off from head to toe and when the water hit my face, I felt as if I was waking up all over again. I felt fresh. I felt alive- invigorated.
The last part of the ritual is a full body massage. It was pure bliss! More fragrant oil was applied to my limbs as the masseuses’ magic hands erased the last bits a stress and fatigue from my body. It culminated with a face massage. If you have never had one please do yourself a favour and get one. You can thank me later.
I left that spa a new woman, I am Le Divorcée 2.018 and am ready to make this my best year ever!
