Green Tea & Peppermint Magnesium Body Butter

Feeling stressed, anxious, or just downright spread thin? Magnesium is a crucial mineral needed for our body to function at it’s best potential, and this lotion will deliver it in a luxurious way! Symptoms of a magnesium deficiency include low energy, headaches, inability to sleep, depression, muscle cramps, plus many more. If any of these symptoms are common occurrences for you I would highly recommend you give this lotion a whirl! I concocted a formula that not only includes maximum strength magnesium oil, but also the cooling effects of peppermint alongside the powerful detoxifying powers of matcha green tea powder. Green tea has the ability to limit sebum production, thereby making it extremely useful in the war against acne. The energy-boosting qualities of green tea make it wonderful for rejuvenating skin cells and diminishing wrinkles. It doesn’t get much better than that! This product is available for sale on my website YogiGlow.etsy.com, but I have also included my process below if you’re feeling experimental!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Shea Butter
  • 1/2 cup Magnesium Oil
  • 1/2 cup Avocado Oil
  • 1/2 – 1 Tsp Matcha Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Beeswax
  • 30-40 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Yields – 1 Pint or 4 4oz jars

The Process:

Melt shea butter and beeswax in a double boiler over low heat, once melted add the avocado oil and stir until well combined. Take off heat and allow to cool to room temperature in a sterile mixing bowl. Add the magnesium oil, peppermint oil, and matcha powder and blend until a thick, creamy consistency is achieved. Immediately transfer the finished product to clean jars and keep sealed unless being used, voila!
