The Scent of Wama

from 390.00

HUNGRY LADIES FOOD SAFARI - Damaraland, Namibia

Wama, 15, smells of herbs in "otjize", the traditional red cosmetics with pigment of ochre and butterfat. It protects her skin from dehydration and mosquito bites. Otjize is also used for hygienic purposes due to the scarcity of water. Over time it flakes off, and so do dirt and dead skin.
