Beauty Recipes - SPA STYLE HERBAL BODY WRAP


6 cups very hot water
1/2 cup dried Chamomile
1/2 cup dried Rosemary
1/4 cup fresh mint or peppermint leaves
Cheesecloth or wide cotton gauze
Linen or loose weave cotton, cut into long strips 4 to 6 inches wide.
Roll of plastic wrap

Bring the water to a boil and remove it from the heat(or pour into a stoppered sink) Wrap the herbs in the cheesecloth or gauze, making a large bundle, and push them down into the water with a large spoon or other utensil. Cover the infusion to contain the steam and allow it to set for 15-20 minutes. Uncover the herbal infusion and stir it once or twice. Add the long strips of linen or cotton. When the fabric is saturated, wring it out and wrap the strips around your body like a mummy! except your head, lower arms and feet. The infusion and fabric should be hot, but not so hot that they burn you.
When you are done repeat the wrapping process by covering the fabric with the plastic wrap.
Make a cold compress for your head and pour yourself a cool glass of water to sip while you rest. Lie down, relax and let the herbs do their work. Leave the wrapping on for no more than 15-20 minutes before showering.

Warning:
If you have high blood pressure, heart problems, or other medical conditions, such high heat situations could be harmful. Be sure to consult your Doctor if you have any health problems before doing this procedure.
