Body wraps have become a very big trend and an expensive one at that. In this post, I plan to help you learn ways to do DIY Body Wraps at home with things you may already have. You will learn recipes and the benefits of each item in a wrap, you will also learn how to do it for free or really cheap.
With all of these wraps, after application you want to wrap tight with saran and then repeat with the ace bandage and leave for 30 mins to 8 hours.
If you plan to do the wraps Often I recommend just purchasing in bulk. It’s more cost effective, especially if you plan to do your whole body.
This is the one item you will probably use the most of. Saran wrap is used to hold our “liquid” in place during our treatment.
For our first recipe, it calls for coffee grounds, you really don’t need much, and you can always use the grounds after making your morning coffee. Me personally I like to use fresh grounds.
The caffeine in coffee helps with cellulite if you look lots of cellulite creams have caffeine in them. It also detoxifies, I did this one and I swear I was peeing every 2 minutes. The results were beautiful. With this one you want to do it in the tub or shower, it gets pretty messy. Another way is to open some trash bags and lay them out and stand over them while applying the recipe.
The Coffee Recipe:
This is a pretty simple recipe, as I stated above, you can use old grounds, but I prefer fresh, I really don’t have a reason why.
What you need:
1/2c coffee grounds
1/3c essential oil
You are going to mix ingredients then heat in a microwave about 15 to 20 seconds, you don’t want it too hot you burn yourself. Make sure you test the heat before applying. Rub mixture on areas to be treated (you may need more depending on the area) I usually only do my stomach. this recipe is per area. You can leave this on anywhere from 30 mins to 8 hours, I like to do all my wraps over night then shower them off in the morning. With this wrap I was super thirsty, so make sure you stay well hydrated. The oil leaves your skin super smooth.
This one will have similar effects as the coffee. Just rub the cream on the area to the area to be treated, wrap with saran and ace then leave on for the desired time period.
I saw the best results with this and the coffee, I liked this a little better because it was less messy. Hemorrhoid Cream has tightening qulities and is effective in tightening and toning the treated area.
Last but not least, This one you will detoxify and is said to aid in weight loss.
3/4c Aloe Vera
2 to 3 drops oil
Put Epsom in a bowl, add aloe stir until salt is completely dissolved, add your oils and wrap!
