My homemade magnesium body butter will help replace the magnesium that our bodies need to thrive to survive. I always try to apply a little to my feet and shoulders before bed. This helps me relax and also get a fantastic night’s sleep. It’s pretty easy to make and the benefits are overwhelming.
In fact, magnesium supplementation supports energy levels, healthy sleep, and relief from aches and pains. Feeling great has never been so relaxing!
Magnesium deficiency is very common and it mimics other common symptoms and many other conditions like, being tired and felling run down, not sleeping well, getting headaches, gut issues, and even feeling stressed and anxious.
Here is a list of things that can lower our magnesium levels:
Too much caffeine
Processed food and Sugar
Too much stress
Poor sleep habits
Calming Magnesium Body Butter
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1/2 cup of coconut oil and melt
1/4 cup magnesium oil
Add 10 drops of lavender essential oil
Add 10 drops cedarwood essential oil
Add 10 drops frankincense essential oil
Place a heat-safe glass measuring cup/bowl inside a pot that has 1-2 inches of simmering water over medium heat. Add the cocoa butter and melt it in your double boiler until it’s completely melted.
Remove the cocoa butter from heat, and add 1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil to the melted cocoa butter and stir until completely the coconut oil has melted. Next add 1/4 cup magnesium oil to the mixture and combine. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to cool for about 30-60 minutes (until it is cooled completely). After the mixture has completely cooled and became a solid. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to whip it. Start on low and increase speed slowly. Whip for about 3-5 minutes. Next add the 10 drops each of lavender essential oil, the 10 drops of cedar wood essential oil, and the 10 drops of frankincense essential oil. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and continue whipping for another 5 minutes or so, until the magnesium body butter is light and fluffy. The color of the magnesium body butter will change from yellow to a pale ivory and almost white color. Lastly put the magnesium body butter into mason jars and seal tightly with a lid. Make sure to label and date the top of the lid. This recipe makes enough for two 4 oz. glass jars.
