How to Make a Homemade Body Wrap
Most homemade body wraps start with applying the mixture of ingredients on the skin, followed by wrapping the body in towels or even plastic to increase the circulation in the skin, draw out toxins and improve its overall look. You can also use bandages which you secure in place with metal clips when you're using a homemade body wrap recipe which recommends that you move after you apply the wrap to your skin.
Quick Homemade Body Wraps
Traditional homemade body warp recipes include the Clay Body Wrap, based on either green or white clay, and the Mineral Wrap which mixes Epsom salts and essential oils.
You'll usually need at least eight cups of water that's boiled before adding the salts or the clay and optional powdered herbs. Your skin should be slightly damp before applying any homemade body wrap with salts or clay.
Best Homemade Body Wrap Recipes
The best way to go when choosing a home made body wrap is to make sure that it's not only beneficial to your skin, but it can also help you lose weight or get rid of cellulite.
Chocolate Body Wrap Recipe
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave before adding 1/3 cup of honey and a few strawberries in a blender. Once the mixture cools down a bit, apply it to your skin after exfoliating thoroughly.
Apply starting with your feet using a clean paintbrush and leave it on for at least 15 minutes.
Almond Oil Homemade Body Wrap for Cellulite
Mix 2 cups of almond oil with 8 drops of grapefruit essential oil and 2 drops of lavender, juniper berry, fennel and thyme essential oil. Put the mixture in a squirt bottle and shake it before and during application.
Wrap your body in cellophane after applying the mixture with a snug fit that doesn't restrict circulation and stay in a warm room for at least 20 minutes.
Shower after your homemade body wrap and always pat your skin dry; never rub it with a coarse towel.
