Last week I took to social media and talked about my neck pains. (More like whined about it honestly.) It was nothing serious by far, but gosh dang, it hurt. Not really sure what I did to it, but after seeing my chiropractor the pain subsided and all is well in the world again. When I mentioned the neck pain I also mentioned the homemade magnesium rub I made to help with the soreness. So many of you asked me to share my recipe, so here we are!

Magnesium is so amazing for so many things, so why not use it? Not only is it good for you, but it feels amazing and helps with soreness! You can read all about the many benefits of magnesium in my article, 14 Reasons Why You And Your Kids Should Use Magnesium.

IngredientsDIY Calming Magnesium Body Butter With Essential Oils


  1. add 1/4 cup of coconut oil and 1/4 cup of shea butter and melt in a double broiler or microwave in a glass jar
  2. add 1 ounce of magnesium oil
  3. cool for 30 minutes in refrigerator
  4. whip for 3-5 minutes with a blender or hand mixer 
  5. add 10 drops each of lavender essential oil, cedarwood essential oil, and frankincense essential oil
  6. whip for another 5 minutes or so until magnesium body butter is light and fluffy


  • This recipe is for a bit more humid environment (such as, my environment). If you live in a slightly less humid environment try adding a 1/4 cup more coconut oil.
  • You can use magnesium flakes in substitution for magnesium oil if you are in a high humidity environment, but I am not a huge fan. I find that the magnesium oil is more effective.
