Health wrap

General facts

  • Wraps are external applications
  • They are mediators of healing processes through the skin and include the whole human being
  • They support other remedies/medicines
  • Wraps require rest and time
  • The environment should be warm and comfortable
  • An after-rest of 30min is important
  • Attention to the child is an important step in the healing process
  • Children are very sensitive to smells and temperatures, so always dose carefully
  • For neurodermatitis patients it is recommended to use silk instead of wool or linen for the wraps
  • Do not use essential oils on infants and use only lightly tempered compresses
  • Essential oils should always be emulsified or diluted (e.g. with olive oil)
  • Warm compresses should always be wrapped well and warmly - as soon as they cool down, they are taken away or renewed
  • Cold wraps should only be fastened and left open - as soon as they become warm, they can be taken away

Onion wrap

Indication: Earache


  • 1 onion
  • 1 meter tube gaze hose (in the set)
  • 2 raw wool pillows (in the set)
  • 1 headband (in the set)


  • Chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Then fill the onion into an approx. 15 cm long Tubegazi tube.
  • Tie the tube on both sides and crush the chopped onion to release the essential oils.
  • Warm the tubegaze to body temperature (e.g. place it on a bed bottle).
  • Insert one end of the tubegaze into the au- ricle and wrap the rest around the entire auricle from above.
  • Cover the ears with the raw wool pillows and fasten with the headband. Keep warm.
  • The wrap can be worn like this once a day for two hours.
  • Wash the skin with warm water afterwards.
