Whether it be the holiday aftermath or day-to-day life, stress can wear you down and negatively affect your health for the worse.

I fell behind on meal planning, housework and got into the bad habit of staying up way too late this winter. This resulted in a tired unorganized mama!

The more I fell behind the more stressed I’ve been feeling day in and day out.

Which resulted in sugar cravings…

and baking…

and lots of chocolate.

Stress can deplete the body of magnesium and magnesium deficiency can lead to a ton of health problems.

I’m getting back on track now. What’s helping more than anything is, yep you guest it. SLEEP.

I’ve been forcing myself to go to bed by 9pm every night. Even if I don’t feel tired, I go to bed.

I’m taking my natural calm daily and I’m rubbing my belly and feet down with my calming magnesium body butter.

Taking magnesium transdermally (topically) is one of the best ways to get this magnesium into your body.

Adding essential oils like Lavender, Frankincense or Stress Away can benefit any stressed out mama. These oils help to alleviate stress and relax the whole body.

If you’re feeling stressed try getting more sleep, start your day with yoga and rub some calming magnesium body butter on your feet before bed. Soon you’ll be feeling zen and back to your normal self!

    I just received my order of all the products to make the body butter. My question, do you add 10-15 drops of a combination of the essential oil or use only one of the oils? I ordered all three. Looking forward to making and using this. I rated it 4 stars only because I haven’t made it or used yet. Thank you for your time.

    Hi Tiffany tried making the body butter and I ended up putting it into the fridge to harden it whipping is really out of the question as once it came back to room temperature the was still a fair amount of clear liquid. I ended up doing my best and then just putting it all into an airtight container. what is the liquid…magnesium oil or water ?

    Question: I have been told that DMSO aids in the absorption of magnesium, but hesitate to use it because it was orignally used as a solvent. A friend told me her Chinese herbalist still recommended she use it along with her magnesium oil. Do you think it would be possible to add DMSO to this body butter?

    I got magnesium drops at a vitamin shop and would like to use them in a cream or lotion, but all I have to mix with is coconut oil. Can I just mix those two ingredients and still get a decent result, or should I wait until I can afford to get cocoa butter or shea butter to mix in with the coconut oil and drops?

    I’ve been using magnesium topically for a couple years since I’ve always heard it’s better absorbed that way. Recently I learned about Mega Food’s Magnesium tablets which have a much higher absorbability rate and started taking them for nutritional support. What a huge difference! I still use a topical magnesium therapeutically for overexertion but taking one tablet in the morning and one in the evening before bed has made such a difference in my sleep and overall achiness, much more so than the topical ever did. My daughter also started taking it and her heart arrhythmia has improved as well.

      GTH, Is this the magnesium you bought for your daughter: MegaFood – Magnesium, Supports the Health of the Heart & Nervous System. I going to make the “Calming Magnesium Body Butter” here, but am thinking about the tablets as well. Could you let me know if this is the same as what you are talking about? THis one says to take one a day any time of the day on an empty stomach. Thanks for the info!!

    What would be a good substitute for the cocoa butter? Would Shea Butter work?

      Sure! You can use shea butter.

        The problem with this is that oil and water don’t mix. I tried this yesterday and followed the directions exactly but the magnesium oil/water mixture did not cool down like the other two so when I went to mix them, the magnesium oil/water did not mix in. I ended up having to dump most of the water out so have no idea how much magnesium is actually in my batch, if any. Can you come up with a suggestion to mix the magnesium oil water with the butters??

    I have been using Magnesium Oil for over a year for my broken ankle. This helps my healing and I use Pan Away for the pain and am very satisfied with the results.

      Is this a recipe that can be used on children and infants? My kiddos have some sensory/nervous system regulation issues and magnesium was recommended as being beneficial.
