A Journey to Morocco inspired me to do this piece of work, as I became familiar with very ancient traditions of steaming and fumigating scents. In Morocco it is still rooted in society to steam herbs and essences of plant oils within spiritual
rituals but also in daily life to clear and refresh the house,
to prevent and to cure from illness in example.
For each purpose there are a large number of ingredients used and mixed from special recipes.
