DIY Magnesium Body Butter Recipe With Essential Oil

Posted on February 25, 2019

Did you know that Magnesium is an integral part of our health, it's known to be involved in over 300 of our body's natural processes. It helps nerves and muscles, as well as our immune system and bones. But most people are deficient in magnesium.  This body butter recipe will not only help you battle dry skin, it will also help prevent muscle cramps and inflammation.

While magnesuim goes to work on muscle cramps and inflammation, coconut oil works wonders on dry skin. Amyris Essential Oil uplifts, stimulates and ease nervous tension while also helping with inflammation and aches in the body. Orange essential oil, on the other hand, is known for its benefits on the skin and help with anxious feelings. This recipe is a great go-to for prepping for and recovering from sporting events.

What You Need:

How to do it:

  1. Add magnesium flakes to boiling water. This may not seem like enough water, but it works! Stir until flakes dissolve then set aside. The mixture may crystallize, which is fine.
  2. Melt beeswax and coconut oil together in a double boiler (or in a jar resting in 2 inches of water in a pan).
  3. Add the essential oils to the melted beeswax and coconut oil and stir for 30 seconds.
  4. Let this mixture cool for 5 minutes before stirring magnesium flakes. Cool for 15 minutes.
  5. Use a hand mixer or stir quickly to whip ingredients until they double in size. If mixture remains runny, allow the mixture to cool longer. Store in a sealable jar.

To use, apply to skin to soothe aching muscles and establish soft silky skin. Over time body butter may solidify, to reuse, gently warm and stir until desired consistency is reached.

Why We Love It:

  1. This body butter not only moisturizes, but it also aids with muscle cramps, inflammation, magnesium deficiency, and feelings of anxiety and nervousness.
  2. It smells amazing! 
  3. I love that I know what's in it and won't have to worry what harmful chemicals will touch my skin.
