Preparing clay for a body wrap.
For a body wrap you will want the clay to be spreadable but not too watery.
Mixing ratio 2:1 ie 2 parts water to one part clay.
Add the clay to the water not the water to the clay.
It is a good idea to plan ahead and prepare the clay approximately 1-2 hours in advance.. This will give the clay plenty of time to hydrate. Preparing a large batch for future use is also a good idea.
For large amounts alternately layering the clay and water will ensure a more even mixture. Start with water then clay then water etc. Any excess water can be poured off.
No mixing is necessary.
- Once it has become fully hydrated you will have a smooth paste that you can use for body wraps as well as facials.
- Kneading and extra water may be necessary if it becomes slightly dry during storage.
Apply 2 – 10 ml thick of paste to the entire body. Cover with a warm damp towel.
Leave for 30 - 60 minutes. Remove with a damp cloth then rinse in the shower.
