Egyptian oils (more for the woman than the man)
Egyptian oils (more for the woman than the man) Hurghada Reviews
Aug 18, 2006
There's a lovely little shop in the town of Hurghada, Egpyt. Honestly i can't remember the exact location but ask one of the locals and they might be able to point you in the right direction. It is located on the main street though and is run by a very beautiful woman. It's filled with many cabinets and shelves stacked up with all Egyptian oils which were probably in ancient times used during death for embalming. They smell gorgeous though and the range is so large that you can just ask for a trial of each one and she'll take the bottle down for you and let you try it out. The great thing about these oils is that they're 100% Egyptian and the fact that they can be used on the body as some sort of perfume as well as in an *oil burning device which would make your home smell wonderful. I love the quirky names they give them too like "Cleopatra" or "King Tut" (i wonder where they got those names from?). Like i said, more for the woman than the man i guess as i'm sure none of you men would appreciate standing in a very hot shop smelling fragrant oils.
Note: Down the road (and a few alleyways somewhere) is a nice little spice shop.
Note: Do haggle (but know when to stop!!)
Note: practice your firm 'NO'. Sellers are persistent and want to see you walk out the door with their product.
*If you're going to use these oils in a burner make sure you mix with a little water first
