  3. How to do a body wrap at home?
    I want to lose a couple of inches off my thighs, I’m not overweight and I do exercise and eat healthily but my thighs are too big. I heard that a body wrap can make you lose inches quickly and I was wondering what the easiest and cheapest way to do one at home it. I found websites but the instructions are complicated and there are loads of complicated ingredients so I was wondering if there was a basic one even if it’s not quite as effective. Thanks:)

    • Hi,
      I know what you mean about those complicated websites and instructions and ingredients.
      Ill tell you my basic home wrap regimen.Its quite simple.
      Youll need some fullers clay,crepe bandages,warm water and cling film.
      Take fullers clay and mix with water,or rose water or lemon juice or essential oils ( your wish) to make a paste.
      Massage fullers clay onto the area you wish to wrap.The clay should cover the area well.
      Take some crepe bandage and soak into the warm water,squeeze and wrap over the clay.
      It should feel tight.Clip in place. Now wrap it with cling film for extra grip.
      Keep it on for an hour and remove.
      You can even measure before and after the treatment to see the inch loss!

    • I recently ordered bentonite & french green clay from the linked seller.

      bentonite – $8.20US for 1#
      green clay – $7.49US for 1#
      SEA SALT-DEAD SEA MINERAL – $9.95US for 2#

      She does free shipping to US for $100 orders & has lots of nice herbs & bulk stuff. I know she ships internationally also. I would suggest contacting her to find out ship costs or if free/discounted ship would apply. I know she charges fair shipping in US, the maximum she charges is $7.95 no matter how many items.

  6. How do you use la looks body wrap clay?
    I’ve just got my la looks clay body wraps in the post, but no instructions. I’ve checked the Internet but can’t find anything to tell me what to do

    • A clay body wrap is a two step process, like all other body wraps except those that are liquid based. this two step process (absorption and compaction) are what make clay wraps far superior to liquid wraps when it comes to inch loss.

      Step #1

      Exfoliate your skin and apply a pre-body wrap solution.

      Step #2

      First, apply the sea clay to your entire body, or the areas that you are treating. Apply the mud generously, but make sure it is not clumpy or thick in areas.

      Step #3

      Apply the wrapping cloths to your body. Make sure the cloths are very warm. This will help open the pores allowing your skin to absorb the clay.

      Step #4

      Leave the wraps on your body for about an hour. Remove in the shower or bath and rinse. Once clean, apply a post body wrap solution to your skin.
      How Do Clay Body Wraps Work?

      So you are probably wondering how a clay body wrap works. Simply put, the clay helps absorb fluid based toxins that are held between the cells. Once these fluids are removed, the pressure from the wrapping bandages helps squeeze the tissue and compact the pockets where the excess fluid once was. The body then starts to reconnect these pockets so that they no loger exist.

      Clay body wraps are the best types of wraps because they have the highest absorption properties of the different types of body wrap formulas.

      If you have never tried a clay body wrap, I highly suggest you do, especially if your goal is to lose inches.

    • Look in your yellow pages under Health Food Store. Most carry bentonite, green clay and sea salt. You may find a body wrap that has all ingredients. Another suggestion is your local apothecary or pharmacy and ask if they carry these items.

  8. Do the minerals and clay actually do anything in a body wrap?
    Just curious if the lost inches are squeezed out by the wrap or if the minerals actually provide more function.

    Once you have your ingredients ready boil 1.8lts of water in a large stainless steel stockpot. Once it has reached boiling point add the herbs and remove the pot from the heat. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pot stir well and allow it to cool down for 10 minutes.

    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 one by all means wear underwear it wont 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 a good 60 minutes.
