If this is your first body wrap treatment from home, you can use this post as a checklist to ensure that you don’t miss any of the essential components to an effective treatment.
So let’s begin…
What Body Wrap Supplies Do I Need To Get Started?
The supplies that you will need should include the following to come up with an effective home wrap:
- Exfoliating products
- Body wrapping bandages
- Body wrap formula
- Sauna suit
Before you begin your body wrap treatment, it’s important that you condition your skin. This will open the pores of your skin and allow it to absorb the nutrients from your body wrap formula. Although an application of exfoliating cream will work, the easiest method to exfoliate is to use a dry skin brush. It is used by gently rubbing the brush against the skin in circular motions and in a direction that goes towards the heart.
Body Wrapping Bandages
Also know as “ACE” bandages, these are the same types of compression bandages used to wrap muscle and ligament injuries. Although towels can be used, body wrap bandages offer the added benefit of compression. They can be re-used many times and simply placed in the washing machine after use.
Body Wrap Formula
The body wrap formula that you apply to your skin is a very important. You may choose to use a clay based formula that is applied to the skin as a thick paste or a liquid formula that your body wrap bandages are soaked in before being applied to the skin.

The sauna suit or “sweat suit” is a plastic body suit used to trap in body heat and promote sweating. Alternatively, one can use a bath robe or baggy sweat pants and a long sleeved sweat shirt; however, expect things to get messy!
Where Can I Find Body Wrap Supplies?
Most drug stores have the exfoliating products and compression bandages available. Where it get’s a little trickier is finding all of the ingredients needed for an effective body wrap formula. Although health food stores often do carry a decent selection of essential oils that can be used, you will need either a clay or liquid herbal formula such as Aloe Vera which can be more difficult to find.
Fortunately, we offer wholesale prices on all body wrap supplies including various types of clay and liquid formula.
