Since my first hammam (public bath) in Turkey, I have loved going to the public bath and having a spa day. However, my experience arriving with no products and sitting around waiting for the massage and scrub has led me to create a kit that I bring so that I can truly pamper myself in the hour or two that I spend in the bathhouse. This same kit applies to the Georgian baths. I started going to them in Georgia to thoroughly warm up when I was staying in Tbilisi this past winter.

You can order tea for two or more if you are bringing people with you!
Ideas for Pampering
Hair Treatments and Shampoos
White Mud – Stock up if you are in Thailand (at Boots), Indonesia (Jakarta), India (Mumbai), Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam (HCM).
Herb Basics Hair treatment
Take a chance on buying a scrubber at the bath or bring your own. In Istanbul they are everywhere. In Georgia they have scrubbers in many pharmacies.
Already in Georgia? The drug stores in Georgia carry this natural shampoo that I like. (All in Russian but you can take a photo of the bottle!)
