I started experimenting with soap back in the summer of 2015 when I took a soap-making class after being laid off from my job the week after a solo trip to Istanbul. During my trip, I visited a Hammam or Turkish bath and collected tons of pure olive oil soaps to bring back home. The whole concept of the Turkish bath, of someone bathing me, drying me, and caring for me was the seed for Temazcal Life. What really brought it to life was my Mexican heritage, the pre-Hispanic traditions of Aztec people’s Temazcalli, which in Náhuatl means steam house. I set out to make the simplest product used in a bath, soap, and create an experience centered on communal well-being. Steam houses and sweat lodges are still used as a ritual to purify the body and mind.
