How to make it

  • I've been experimenting on my own and here's the procedure that I am using with the oil recipe above.
  • Layer the massage table with a tarp (silver lining up)[I got a 6 X 9
  • ft one on sale for $5.99], a wool blanket, a bed sheet, and a thin
  • plastic sheet (like the cheap drop cloth you can buy for painting for
  • $1.00 at Dollar General & can be cut in half).
  • Lay down on top of the plastic and have someone rub the oil blend all over your body (omitting the chest area).
  • This includes legs, feet, arms, and hands.
  • We used approximately an ounce of the mixture.
  • After the oil is applied, have the person bring the plastic tightly
  • around you tucking it between your legs and between your arms and
  • body.
  • Then the sheet (wrapping it as if you were wrapping a baby in a
  • receiving blanket).
  • Next put a large hot towel over your body, then wrap the blanket around you and finally the tarp.
  • Stay in this cocoon for 45 minutes to an hour.
  • After you are unwrapped you will be wet
  • from the fluid you have shed.
  • It might be wise to wrap up in a dry sheet,towel or blanket to cool down for a while.
  • I don't shower because I want the oils to stay on my body as long as possible.

    Essential oils break down plastic...I think the original suggestion from Young Living was to wrap the sheet underneath the plastic wrap
