Herbal body wraps are a weight loss technique that involves soaking bandages in an herbal solution, or applying an herbal paste to the body and then bandaging the treated body area(s) tightly so that toxins can be forced out of the body. This type of weight loss product often claims that you can lose 6 to 12 inches in one hour by using their product. And while these claims may be true, the numbers can be a bit deceptive as these inches come from about a dozen different measurements at various locations on the body. However, there is something to be said for the herbal wrap, as they are effective at helping rid the body of excessive water weight, and they can tighten your skin and help you to slim down a little bit.
One herbal body wrap that I have had success with is Simply Slender Body Wrap Formula. This product comes in a good sized jar that is good for several total body wrap sessions. Unlike some of the other herbal wraps that require soaking bandages in an herbal tonic and then applying to the body, this product is mud based. To use it you apply the mud to your target areas, then firmly wrap theses areas with a warm, damp bandage, put on the sauna suit, and relax for about one hour before removing the bandages and rinsing the remaining mud off your skin. To measure the results of this product you will need to take measurements of various places on your body like your upper arms, thighs, hips, chest, waist, etc. both before and after the treatment. You can easily reduce your arms by one inch each per treatment. For the best results you should spread out the treatments to every four or five days. Finally, for lasting results you will need to repeat treatments for maintenance purposes.
This product contains the following ingredients: purified water, Aloe Juice, Bentonite, Kaolin, Propylene Glycol, Olive Oil, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Polysorbate 20, Herbal Extracts, Bee Pollen, Bladderwort, Ginseng, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Spearmint Oil, Peppermint Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, and Tea Tree Oil. It comes in a variety of jar sizes including 16 oz, 32 oz, and 64 oz jars. There are also complete application kits also available that include bandages, sauna suits, measuring tape, and Simply Slender Body Wrap Formula.
BENEFITS OF THIS PRODUCT
I have used this product and it does deliver what it promises. You definitely lose inches with each use. The Simply Slender application kits also are very convenient as they contain everything that you need for a successful herbal body wrap treatment. I also use the Simply Slender Body Wrap Formula as an exfoliator and facial treatment. It is great for clearing up your skin and giving it a beautiful glow before a special event.
DRAWBACKS TO THIS PRODUCT
Simply Slender leaves your skin soft and tightened, however, this product has issues that you should be aware of before you try it. First it is difficult to apply by yourself, especially if you want to work on your back, or if you will be treating more than one area of your body at a time. Once the tight bandages are on it is difficult to move, so you may want to enlist the help of a friend or spouse.
The second issue that this product has it that it is not that comfortable to sit through. The mud is itchy, you have to stay still, and you get cold. To reduce these irritations it is a good idea to purchase the Simply Slender sauna suit to help improve the results of the product, and to maintain your body temperature during the treatment.
The final problem that this product has is that it is messy. Since it is a clay/mud based product, when it dries it flakes off everywhere, and it can be difficult to get out of carpets and off of your bathtub or sink. To help alleviate these problems stand over a towel and have a lined basket ready to receive your used bandages and clothes after your treatment.
