  • Step 1

    Body Preparation:
    Several days before the Wrap, ensure you have started detoxing your insides by drinking 2 liters of water each day and eating a healthy diet. Exfoliate your skin using an exfoliating mitt and avoid shaving or waxing for a few days. Before applying the wrap take a warm shower to open your pores up to allow a quick absorption of the minerals.

  • Step 2

    Environment:
    Select an area that is quiet, peaceful and warm. You may need to heat this area
    For a full spa treatment, set the mood with relaxing music and some candles.

  • Step 3

    Making some cloth wraps:
    You can use medical bandages or a cotton sheet that has been cut into strips to wrap your body in. Make sure that these are small enough to handle and roll them up ready to use. The main object of these bandages is to allow the fat cells to collapse under the compression of the bandages or wraps.

  • Step 4

    Preparing your ingredients:
    Select your ingredients from the list provided above based on what you can obtain easily and also what you feel your body needs to detoxify. You can make it as intense or as simple as your like. Once you have them ready boil 1.8lts of water in a large stainless steel stockpot. Once it has reached boiling point remove it from the heat and add all your selected ingredients and allow it to cool down for 10 minutes. This mix is now ready to use.

  • Step 5

    Application process:
    Dip your bandages or cloth wraps into the mix one by one making sure your mud mix stays warm, you may need to re-heat it if it cools too quickly. Thoroughly soak each bandage into the mix then wrap it around your body starting from your ankles and working your way up. If you are getting help with this by all means wear underwear, it wonýt make much difference to the outcome. It is however important to stay warm, so if your room is too chilled wrap yourself in a washable blanket lay back and relax for at least 60 minutes.

I don't really understand what they mean by replacing water with moisturizing agents...is that optional?

This is a great how to. I don't know if I'd get round to trying it as it looks a bit messy and takes some planning. I'll add it to my list for next time my boyfriends away Happy
