Magnesium Body Butter

  1. Using a small pot, fill it to about a ¼ with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat to a simmer and fit a pyrex bowl (or a stainless steel mixing bowl) on top to make a double-boiler. Make sure that the bowl is not reaching the water.
  3. Add all ingredients except for the magnesium oil to the bowl and let them melt together. Remove the bowl from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Using a hand blender, blend your mixture and slowly incorporate the magnesium oil.
  5. When well-mixed, cool in the fridge for 15 minutes. Blend again and now it’s ready!

Your magnesium body butter should keep for up to two months. For best results, store in the fridge for cooling relief.
