Marrakech Magic

 In Morocco


My first stop in Marrakech was to pay a visit to a small apothecary in the medina run by an acquaintance of my friend and guide, Majid.  An expert in traditional remedies using herbs, spices and essential oils, he concocted a special blend of essential oils including eucalyptus, neroli, rose and musk for an aromatic “savon noir” – the traditional soap made from olives.
