Lose inches and toxins from your body with this easy to make, luxurious body wrap with safe, natural ingredients. Read on to learn more.
Things You'll Need
1 cup bentonite or green clay
1/4 cup sea salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups spring water
plastic wrap or a white sheet torn into strips about 5 inches wide and 5 feet long
basin of warm water if you are using the sheet
Make sea water by mixing the sea salt in the spring water. Add the clay to make a paste. Add the olive oil. When all mixed together, additional spring water may be added to get it to the proper consistency.
Place your wrapping strips in the basin of warm water unless you are using plastic wrap.
Take a long, warm shower to open your pores so the wrapping solution can seep in. Leave the shower running while you apply the wrap to help keep your pores open.
Apply the solution to whatever part of your body you are wrapping. Wrap in an upward direction with the strips. If you are using the sheet, you may want to wrap a second dry layer on top.
Now, just lay down and rest for 30 minutes. Put on some relaxing music. Set your alarm clock in case you fall asleep.
Remove the strips and shower using lukewarm water. Only shower with lukewarm water for a couple of days so your pores stay closed to allow the wrap to work.
Take a very warm shower on the third day to open your pores and the accumulated toxins will be released.
Add any kind of essential oil you like for additional relaxation benefits.
Do a small test area on your inner arm first to make sure you will not have any sensitivities to the ingredients.
