The ancient times is a period when the cult of the body was extremely popular and a great attention was paid to personal hygiene. Besides washing, the basic care also included body massage and scented baths with the use of precious oils and balms, and they were equally enjoyed by men and women. Scents that were popular at that time were musk, amber, incense, cinnamon, and thyme and they were used for perfuming the temples, embalming, and sacrifices. The cosmetic products saw a boom in the ancient Rome due to the arrival of Greek physicians and encyclopedists. Roman women used balms, oils, and powders for skin cleansing, and they also made soaps from fat and lime. The ancient Rome was known for making many cosmetic and medicinal agents and preparations such as paste against skin flaking, creams, balms, baths, and perfumes.
