Rhassoul mud, also called rassoul and er... mud



Rhassoul is a type of therapeutic mud.

And a rhassoul treatment is basically when, usually after a gommage, you are smothered in rhassoul mud, left to “bake” for a while in a hammam, and then washed down.


It can be a little hot, and if it is your first time in a hammam I would actually recommend you give this a miss - perhaps build up to it, as a lot of treatments in one go can dehydrate you - if you haven’t drunk enough water or just simply because of the detox effects of the massage.


I’ve enjoyed the treatment but haven’t really noticed much of a specific effect - but it does smell great.


Also known as ghassoul, rasul, mud, lava clay and rhassoul clay.
