Magnesium Body Butter Recipe
Magnesium Body Butter Recipe with Essential Oils
- 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.
- Melt beeswax and coconut oil together in a double boiler (or in a jar resting in 2 inches of water in a pan).
- Add the essential oils to the melted beeswax and coconut oil and stir for 30 seconds.
- Let this mixture cool for 5 minutes before stirring magnesium flakes. Cool for 15 minutes.
- 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.
