Itinerary B
Piazza Armerina

[2] The aromas of well-being

You can still smell the scent of the aromatic ointments in the round cruciferous ampoule and of lomentum, the ointment made from macerated lupins and honey used for massages.  The massages were also carried out using cedar oil from Lebanon, to which olive oil, lavender and rosemary were added. When entering the massage room, you would be pervaded by a multitude of scents emanating from natural products that were also used by men, who were just as interested in body care as women.
