Sleepytime Lavender and Magnesium Lotion Bars

Magnesium Lotion Bars

These Lavender and Magnesium Lotion Bars are the answer to dry skin, aching muscles, and sleepless nights.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt the beeswax, cocoa butter, and Shea oil over a double boiler. Keep stirring until fully dissolved.
  2. In the meantime, melt magnesium flakes in a separate bowl with 2 T boiling water. Stir until fully dissolved.
  3. Once the cacao butter-oil mixture is fully dissolved, remove from the heat, and add jojoba and essential oil.
  4. Pour the oil mixture into a high-speed blender (I used a Vitamix), add the melted magnesium water and blend on high until a creamy (light-coloured) emulsion forms.*
  5. Add ¼ teaspoon of dried lavender petals to each mould and pour mixture into moulds.
  6. Smooth the surface and put it in the fridge to set.
  7. Once set, remove the massage bars from the moulds.
  8. Store in a glass mason jar in a cool place out of direct sunlight.

Notes

*Note: The blending step is really important to combine and emulsify all ingredients. If you don’t blend long enough, you won’t reach the right consistency to make bars.

Tip: You can add rose geranium, sweet orange or lemongrass essential oil to these bars to make them even more dreamy.
