Homemade Body Wraps

If you don’t have the time or the money to spend on a professional body wrap, you can make your own homemade body wraps and do a full body wrap at home. We’ve listed a few simple recipes and ingredients for homemade body wraps that you can use.

Sugar and Honey Scrub Followed by Oriental Papaya Homemade Body Wraps:
Most salons recommend that you do a full body scrub before using homemade body wraps. The scrub can be made by mixing together sugar and honey to make a thick scrub. The skin scrub is applied before the homemade body wraps. The oriental papaya and fruit-based homemade body wraps are made by pureeing the pulp of a very ripe papaya. You can also add two or three fruits to the same homemade body wraps. For example, papaya and pineapple is a good mixture for homemade body wraps as both fruits contain strong enzymes that rejuvenate skin.

Algae and Seaweed Homemade Body Wraps:
No one really likes the smell of seaweed but these homemade body wraps are particularly good for skin texture and cellulite, detoxification and blood circulation. If you live by the sea, you will be able to find local seaweed that you can use in your homemade body wraps. If you cannot source local seaweed, you can always use dried powdered seaweed or powdered spirulina powder to make your homemade body wraps. To make really great homemade body wraps, we suggest you combine lavender oil with rosemary oil and almond oil to make great seaweed homemade body wraps.

Sea Salt and Clay Homemade Body Wraps:
These homemade body wraps are great to tone skin, reduce cellulite and improve circulation. Green clay, Dead Sea salt, olive and almond oils and peppermint essence can be used to make homemade body wraps.

-Most homemade body wraps are perfectly safe but you may have latent allergies that might flare up. We suggest you do a patch test 24 hours before a full body application. Apply the homemade body wraps to the skin on the inside of your arm and wash it off after one hour. Wait for 24 hours to check for allergic reactions.
-Make sure you use the best and freshest ingredients in your body pack.
-Always start with a scrub as it removes superficial dead skin and allows the pack to penetrate better into the body.
-If you have a thermal blanket, it will work to raise your body temperature but you can just as easily use thin towels and bandages, or plastic sheets followed by a thick blanket.
-Run the shower in your bath to add a sauna component to your body wrap.
