Herbal Body Wraps Recipes

Herbal Body Wraps
The body wrap produces therapeutic and cosmetic benefits by cleansing the body of toxins and reducing inches.  Body wraps are great for anyone who wants to improve, tone and tighten the look and texture of their skin, including people with loose skin from weight loss or pregnancy. Also those who experience joint pain and inflammation will benefit from the therapeutic effects of body wraps.

A simple wrap can be a mixture of a clay and some natural sea salt.  To the simple wrap you can add more complex ingredients such as herbs and up to 2 tablespoons of an essential oil.   

Sample of essential oils
Lavender, sage, lemon, sandlewood, lemongrass, rosemary, grapefruit, olive oil

Sample of herbs
Alfalfa leaf powder, ground basil, chamomile flower powder, rose petal powder, rosehip powder

Clay Body Wrap Recipe
1 cup bentonite or green clay
1/4 cup sea salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups water

Boil water and add sea salt until it is dissolved.  Add remaining ingredients and stir. Adjust the water if necessary to form a wet paste.

Rub the mixture over your entire body and cover yourself with thin towels or a clean white sheet. Most salons will recommend that you use proper wrapping sheets as the compaction helps to squeeze the tissues together for greater results.  

Lay in the tub for a minimum of 45 min. to one hour.

Body wrap session tips

  • Body wraps are messy and in my opinion, the best place to take the wrap is in the bath tub.  

  • It can also be boring laying in the tub and staring at the ceiling for 45 min.  To help make the time go by faster, you can listen to your favorite music on a walkman or bring in a portable television.  

  • Take a warm shower before applying the wrap to open the pores.

  • Drink lots of water both before and after your wrap to help flush out toxins. 

  • You can cover yourself with an inexpensive foil thermal blanket to keep warm.

  • Try to avoid caffeine, sugar, fried fatty foods, soda drinks and alcohol for the next 48 hours.

Body Wrap Recipe Resource Online:
Danielle Simms paid $85 for an herbal wrap at a salon and lost a total of 23 permanent inches in one hour.  She wanted at least 6 more wraps and was told that she'd have to pay $360 for a package of 6 wraps. She politely declined.

After doing her own extensive research, she discovered homemade recipes that produced even greater results than the salon wrap she received.

She doesn't give away her recipes for free, but she promises that you'll be able to give yourself effective wraps for as little as $3.00 - $4.00 per wrap by buying the supplies and making them yourself!  Her recipes are available at the wrapyourselfslim website.  You can also order Wrapping Clothes directly from her after downloading the recipes.

See below to read the FAQ's about Danielle's body wrap recipes. 

Epsom salts for detox
Another simple way to draw toxins out of the body is to take a hot epsom salt bath.  Hot water draws toxins out of the body to the skin’s surface, and while the water cools it pulls toxins from the skin, according to Naturopath Dr. Hazel Parcells.  When magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) is absorbed through the skin in a bath, it helps to draw toxins from the body, reduce swelling and relax muscles.  

Epsom salts are named for the mineral rich waters of Epsom, England, where they were known at least as far back as Shakespeare's day.  

Epsom Salt Detox Bath Recipe
1 cup epsom salts
handful of sea salt
2 tablespoons of bath oil

Pour the ingredients into the tub while the tub is filling.

Caution: Do not take hot baths if you have high blood pressure, heart, diabetic or kidney troubles.  

Epsom Salt Scrub Recipe
Massage a handful of epsom salts, mixed with 1 tablespoon of bath oil or olive oil, over wet skin to cleanse, exfoliate and soften the rough spots.  Rinse well.

FAQ'S ABOUT THE 'WRAP YOURSELF SLIM' BODY WRAP RECIPES
By Danielle Simms

Can I do the wrap myself, or do I need help?
These body wraps are so easy to do that you do NOT need any help from others.

Do I need some sort of special equipment?
The body wraps in Wrap Yourself Slim: Body Wraps Exposed are designed to be performed in the privacy of your own home. You do not need any special equipment. The items you need to perform one of my wraps are wrap cloths, the ingredients, and items that are found in every household, such as stainless steel pot, mixing bowl, spoon, etc...

I've tried a wrap before with no results. Will your formulas work for me?
My wrapping formulas are different from any of the other body wraps that are currently on the market and do not contain a whole lot of filler ingredients. 

The formula's will work as long as there is adequate absorption and circulation from the skin. I provide a program in my book that will help you increase your skins ability to absorb and increase circulation. Your skin will be "fit" enough to absorb the formula. The techniques and information will also help with cellulite, water retention, blemishes, skin tone, and more...

Why do your formulas work?
My formulas release fat out of the body's cells into the lymphatic system. The fat is then carried out of the body naturally through normal elimination. 

Is a body wrap a compression or sauna-like water loss treatment?
No, inch loss is not due to temporary compression or water loss. These special formula detaches fat lipids from the cell walls for natural elimination through the lymphatic system, thereby producing PERMANENT fat loss.

How long does it take to get a wrap?
It takes approximately 1-1/2 hours your first body wrap. You will be in your wrap for only 60 minutes, but additional time is needed for measuring, wrapping and unwrapping.

What do I wear while I am wrapped?
You can wrap in the nude, or, women can be wrapped in a bra and panties or a bikini, and men can be wrapped in underwear or swim trunks.

What does "total inch loss" mean?
Before wrapping, measurements are taken of various parts of the body (calves, hips, waist, midriff, abdomen, arms, etc.) and recorded on the chart included with my book. After the wrap, re-measure, and the your starting and ending measurements are subtracted to determine "total inch loss."

Will the wrap help me to lose weight as well as inches?
A body wrap was designed to take off inches and detoxify the body. It is natural to experience a weight loss when you experience a fat loss.

How many wraps will I need?
That depends on the results you want to achieve, the amount of loose skin you have, your commitment to following the tips in my bonus report. To maximize your results, I recommend that you get wrapped once a week for 6 weeks. for maintenance and to continue detoxification, I recommend that you wrap once a month.

What about pre-existing medical conditions? Common sense says that, if you have medical problems, you should always obtain your doctor's permission before you try anything new or different. a body wrap is no exception.

What will a body wrap do for my skin?
Your skin will be conditioned and appear smoother and tighter after wrapping. If you have recently lost weight and need to tighten your skin and body, the body wrap is a quick and easy way to do this.

What will a body wrap do for cellulite?
One of the first things you will notice is a visible improvement in the cellulite dimples and ripples within the first few wraps. Results can usually be seen from the very first wrap, but individual results vary from individual to individual.

What about problem areas such as thighs, stomach, etc...?
If you have problems in only a few areas you can wrap the problem spots to make them slimmer and to shrink fat and lose inches. It is recommended that your first wrap is a full body wrap.

How much weight will I lose?
A body wrap was designed to take off inches rather than pounds. However if you use the techniques in the bonus report you could lose weight!

Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
