Make a body wrap with a variety of ingredients found in nature, and in your pantry. You can make an herbal body wrap with essential oils like lavender, lemongrass, sage or sandalwood, or herbs such as rose petals, chamomile flower powder or clay (green clay stimulates circulation and detoxifies the skin). Buy these ingredients at a natural health food store or order them over the Internet. For example, a clay body wrap recipe includes 1 cup of green clay, 1/4 cup of sea salt, 2 tbsp. of olive oil and 2 cups of water. Boil the water and sea salt together until the sea salt dissolves and then turn off the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Allow to cool and then rub the mixture all over your body.
