What is a Temazcal?
In itself, the Temazcal represents the earth, the goddess who gives us life and sustains us. When one enters the Temazcal, is said to be entering the womb of Mother Earth and why the Temazcal is shaped dome; in some cases it is literally built into the earth in the form of cave. Inside the Temazcal is dark.
Outside the Temazcal, in some traditions on the eastern side, the sacred fire is located; this represents the sun god, whose fertilizing and creative energy heated volcanic stones which will then heat the Temazcal.
In the center of the Temazcal is a depression where hot stones are placed; on these stones healing and aromatic plants are placed, or an infusion of these is poured on the stones. Plants are also symbolic for their individual properties, for example:
- The copal cleanses the spirit and retrieves the memory of our origin.
- The licorice attracts beauty and sweetness and tenderness revealed within the heart.
- Cedar to thank and bless all we have.
- Sage to choose only what we need.
From the moment water or herbal tea to stones is added, steam is created and the Temazcal already contains all the basic elements of the universe (earth, fire, air and water)
