It was my understanding that the Romans would cleanse themselves by applying oil and then slicking it off with a curved, wooden blade. Then they would bathe in a series of baths with different temperatures going from hot to cold.
The oil was used to cleanse the skin and the baths were supposed to renew the spirit.
