Temazcal Life is a personal care brand rooted in Pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican rituals meant to purify and renew the body, mind, & spirit. We believe simple rituals have the power to transform our well-being.
Our name, pronounced teh•ma•skaal laif, comes from the Aztec Náhuatl word Temazcalli; which means “steam house.” The temazcal bath ritual is part of well-being in a traditional culture that safeguards communal integrity.
Slowness as a ritual of care
Well-being is not only the absence of illness but also balance in the community through social harmony, balanced natural surroundings, the visible universe around us, and the intangible universe of beliefs*.
Today’s fast-paced lifestyle can be thrilling, yet it keeps us worried about it eroding our culture, well-being, and sense of belonging. Slowing down can help us reinforce our sense of community, and connect with ourselves, and each other**.
Temazcal Life's purpose is to inspire people to slow down, reconnect with themselves, and prioritize their well-being while making that privilege accessible to disadvantaged communities.
