The beauty of Morocco is legendary, women from across the globe have searched and researched far and wide seeking out the glowing, smooth skin and physical benefits that result from traditional Moroccan beauty rituals. From the lavish mountains of the north to the scorched Saharan south, the beauty culture of Morocco is rich and diverse. Thanks to the varied people and climates across the country, each area has its own beautifying ingredients, traditions, and techniques, suited to the exclusive needs and requirements of its residents.
Moroccan Mothers & Daughters
Every young girl in Morocco will grow up with her mother and piers preparing their own homemade beauty mixtures, pure Argan and Olive oils, Ghassoul clay, Henna and Rose water are just a few natural staples of their beauty regimes in which mothers would secretly hold and pass on throughout their generations!
In Morocco, the beauty ritual is traditionally a well-appointed and social affair that is shared with mothers, daughters, sisters, neighbours and friends. It’s a sisterhood of moral support, physical, mental and emotional stimulation of the mind and soul.
So, the Hammam (Moroccan public bath, sauna, steam room) is usually where women will get a chance to gather, socialise, recharge their batteries, share hair & beauty tips and scrub each other’s backs, etc.
Beauty is the intention and purpose, but the beautifying journey with your sisters, itself is an experience beyond description. It’s a refuge of my time, a boost of confidence and self-esteem. It’s moral support and a woman’s temporary healing of her life’s woes.
From skin brightening clay masks to herbal henna treatments and skincare oils, Moroccan women have curated the most effective and luxurious range of Moroccan beauty recipes from across Morocco, giving you the ultimate Moroccan beauty experience, from head to toe.
Azizati Health & Beauty
At Azizati health and beauty, we hope to continue to educate & facilitate the use of these famous and simple ingredients. These natural, purifying & special blessings from Allah come with amazing benefits. They are what make these homemade Moroccan beauty recipes, we grew up with, so effective. That is why they should be just as valuable to us as they were to our Mothers.
We first started out importing organic olive oil, Argan oil, prickly pear oil, henna, ghassoul, and skin exfoliating accessories alongside some traditional beauty accessories such as Kohl and Mirweds as well as lots of herbs & spices. Although business was good, unfortunately, we could no longer keep this up without losing out financially. However, my passion for this, and my love for natural health and beauty couldn’t just stop there.
I felt that I needed to seek a way that I could still fulfill my passion without breaking the bank. So, Alhamdulillah by the will of Allah I was guided to continue my work through being an Amazon Affiliate. Promoting other products and brands that I believed in and admired for their ethical standards gave me a sense of peace.
I was deeply saddened to wave goodbye to my own Azizati brand, our Kohl, Rose Water, Argan Oil & Olive Oil were our best sellers. We even did homemade spice mixes, preserves & jams.
But I have found virtue, contentment, and a just cause in creating beneficial content for my sisters. I know how tiring it is to continuously be checking through ingredient lists for haram and toxic or harmful ingredients. I’m happy to have been able to create this platform for my Muslim brothers and sisters to shop for their halal and clean cosmetics with peace of mind.
Many of us only realise the true value of our mothers when we are blessed in becoming a mother ourselves. We then somehow see what they once saw and what they once felt, and finally, understand how they lovingly formed us into the strong beautiful women we are today. Molding confidence, love, and appreciation for ourselves within us as little girls and teaching us natural & effective self-nurturing techniques all contribute towards the type of care, love, and pillar of support we are towards our husbands, children, families, and friends today.
