At Home Detox Body Wrap

There's never a bad time to pamper yourself. I am firm believer in catering to your own needs first, in order to effectively be able to cater to the needs of others. Be it work, your children or even your Friends, you typically are optimal at be great it it when you you head space is in a great place. I recently found this great home detox body wrap that I tried, and I loved it. 

Now more than ever I make sure to nurture myself, it's important that I provide these things for me, and not always depend on it from others.
This is why anytime I find something that works for me I share it, I hope in some way it works in helping you with your self nurturing.

Detox body wrap
Recipe type: DIY Beauty
A purifying papaya body wrap to relax and detox the body while smoothing and softening the skin.
  • 3 cups papaya, grated
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 2 cups rice bran
  • ½ cup softened coconut oil
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • Old bed sheet preferably cotton
  1. Prepare a bath, sun lounge or floor with towels to lie on. Check the room is warm, because the wrap will cool the body. Put the heater on or an old blanket in reach, if need be.
  2. Mix all the ingredients, except for the Epsom salts, in a big bowl.
  3. Place 1 cup of the mixture in a separate bowl to use on the face.
  4. Stir the Epsom salt into the big bowl of mixture and the body wrap is ready.
  5. Take a warm shower to help open the pores, but don’t shave before the wrap.
  6. Spread out the bed sheet and sit in the middle.
  7. Using your hands, pat the mixture all over your body, starting with your feet and covering up with the bed sheet as you go.
  8. Apply the face mask and snuggle up in the sheet.
  9. Relax, by focusing on your breathing. Stay there for anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes.
  10. When you’re ready, scrape the body wrap onto the sheet and dispose or clean off for another use. I have been known to compost the whole thing, cotton sheet and all.
  11. Rinse off under a warm, but not hot shower. Moisturize with something like the whipped green tea and coconut oil moisturizer from Henry Happened.
  12. Drink lots of water and pay attention to how you and your skin feel.
  13. It’s a good idea to exfoliate the body every day for three days after, because of the way the enzymes dissolve and dislodge the dead cell walls and toxins.
  14. You can repeat this treatment once a week for a month and continue monthly for maintenance.
