Traditional medecine

Many natural products are used to heal different illnesses, and also for good luck in business or in love.

Between them, we have to mention henna: an herb cultivated in presaharic valleys and exported all over Morocco. It is applied sometimes on wounds and skin illnesses and it is also used by women to dye the palms of their hands, their feet or their hair, with an esthetic objective and for good luck.

Henna pictures with geometric patterns are very popular in the big cities of Morocco, but not in this area.
