DIY Slimming & Detoxifying Body Wrap recipe
Clay Cream Ingredients:
1 cup Bentonite (Also called Indian Healing Clay. This material usually comes in one-pound bags)  
¼ cup Dead Sea Salts or ½ cup of Epsom Salt
2tbsp. olive oil
1 green tea bag
3 cups distilled water
Optional:  You may use Apple Cider Vinegar in place of the water. Or use ½ Apple Cider Vinegar and ½ distilled water. If you are using only distilled water, then you may add a couple drops of your favorite essential oil.
Directions: In a medium-sized pot, bring 2 cups distilled water (or Apple Cider Vinegar or combination of both) with the green tea bag to a slow boil.  While that solution is coming to a boil, in a separate small pot warm up remaining cup of water (to be used if clay mixture is too thick).  When 2 cups of solution begin to boil, take out tea bag and add Dead Sea Salt (preferred) or Epsom Salt and stir until dissolved.  Add olive oil and continue stirring while you add Bentonite.  Lower heat to simmer and continue to stir.  If adding essential oil, now is the time.  Stir until a paste forms.  If mixture is too thick, use remaining cup of warm water to thin the clay mixture a bit.  If too thin, add a bit more clay.
Wrap Soak Ingredients:
½ gallon distilled water
½ c. Epsom salts or Dead Sea salts
2 green tea bags
