D.I.Y. Body Wrap...

The wrap that keeps on giving....

I am so obsessed with DIY Spa treatments, why spend all that money when you can get similar results at home for factions of the cost. I have been useing this DIY wrap for years. I use it when I am preparing for a big event, beach trip or just need to drop a few extra pounds fast.

It really works, try it...

Body Wraps Recipe

Clay Cream Ingredients:

1 cup Indian Healing Clay

¼ cup Dead Sea Salt

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1 Green Tea Bag

3 cups distilled water, divided

You may use Apple Cider Vinegar instead of the water.

Or use ½ Apple Cider Vinegar and ½ distilled water

Wrap Soak Ingredients

½ gallon distilled water

1/4 Dead Sea Salt

2 Green Tea bags

Additional Supplies:

1 top and 1bottom

Plastic wrap

DIRECTIONS for Mixing the at Home Body Wraps Recipe

In a medium size pot, bring 2 cups distilled water (or Apple Cider Vinegar or combination of the ACV and distilled water) with the green tea bag to a slow boil. While 2 cups water is coming to a boil, in a separate small pot warm up remaining cup of water (to be used if clay mixture is too thick). When 2 cups begins to boil, take out tea bag and add Dead Sea Salt and stir until dissolved. Add olive oil and continue stirring while you add Bentonite. Lower heat to simmer and continue to stir. Stir until a paste forms. If mixture is too thick, use remaining cup of warm water to thin the clay mixture a bit. If too thin, add a bit more clay.

Allow mixture to cool.


Wrap Soak Directions

In a large pot bring ½ gallon distilled water along with tea bags to a slow boil, add ½ cup Dead Sea Salt turn off heat and stir until Salt dissolves. Allow to cool off a bit until able to touch, then soak a pair of tight fitting under garments (top and bottom) for about 15 minutes.

Let cool...

Apply the warm clay mixture on tummy, arms and legs. now put on the bottoms and top start wrapping.

Use the plastic wrap: Now you will take a roll of every day plastic food wrap and wrap yourself to keep the underwear and top against your body to stay warm. Make sure you cover everywhere you wrapped!

Now you can either put on cotton sweat pants and sweat shirt to stay warm or a long robe or lie down and cover yourself with blankets to stay warm.

Happy Wrapping..
