How to Make Your Own Magnesium Lotion

Make your own magnesium lotion! | themodestmomblog.com

Magnesium oil is receiving a lot of attention these days. It can be commonly overlooked, but magnesium is a crucial mineral for our body.  Magnesium is used in hundreds of different body functions, but due to the diet most Americans eat, many of us have a deficiency. I have read that millions suffer from magnesium deficiency without even realizing it.

I started looking into Magnesium about 6 months ago. I endured a very difficult first trimester with our fifth baby, lost 10 pounds and with my blood sugar always low I was feeling rather loopy. I started researching ways to hopefully have a better first trimester if the Lord should choose to bless us with another baby. I read several stories about how women were dramatically helped by taking magnesium, so I have been taking magnesium (trying to remember to take that is!) in the hopes of it possibly helping morning sickness in the future.

My mother in law has suffered from migraines and they got to the point that she was having dizzy spells. She went to several doctors but they didn’t help her. Finally, someone suggested she try taking magnesium, and it has greatly helped her dizzy spells.

I try to remember to take magnesium at night, and prefer the Natural Calm powder. It really does help me sleep better, and it doesn’t taste bad. You need to start at a small dosage and work your way up as magnesium can cause loose stools.

Another alternative to taking magnesium powder is to make magnesium lotion! I recently made this, and I’ve been thrilled with the results!  If you struggle with constipation, it will help you in that area. :) Magnesium also gives you a calming effect, which is great if you are stressed or anxious.

Inability to Sleep
And more…

 I was excited to see the ebook “Healing with God’s Earthly Gifts” included in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle. This ebook has not been released yet, and will not be available to purchase until this fall! Included in the ebook are all sorts of natural and herbal remedies. This is a favorite of mine from the bundle, as it is a high quality ebook with excellent recipes.

The recipes are broken down into different sections, ‘The Basics’ (salves and tinctures), ‘Respiratory Ailments’, ‘Head and Stomach’, ‘Skin and Surface Remedies’, ‘Balance’, and ‘Other’.

The magnesium lotion recipe comes from the ‘Other’ section, and I have permission to share the recipe here with you all! I had so much fun making this recipe, it really is enjoyable to make your own healthy product in minutes! 

This is simple, requires only a few ingredients, and can be made in less than 15 minutes.

Magnesium Lotion Recipe 

Ingredients:

Benefits of Joy Essential Oil | themodestmomblog.com
*You may sub any other liquid oil (almond, olive, jojoba, etc.). Some have even used coconut, although it produces a harder lotion.

Ingredients for making magnesium Lotion

Step 1: Heat 1⁄2 c. filtered water just hot enough to steam, then add the magnesium flakes and stir or shake in a covered jar until dissolved. You will not use all of it for this recipe, so save some for later.

Magnesium Flakes Dissolved

Step 2: In a saucepan over low heat, melt the shea butter and beeswax together, then add the avocado oil.

Step 3: Add the melted oils to a blender. At this point, you want the oils and the magnesium oil to be about the same temperature, or just warmer than room temperature. If they are drastically different, they won’t form an emulsion.

Step 4: Add the magnesium oil to the blender too. Turn it on low at first, then turn it up until the lotion turns thick, white, and opaque.

Step 5: Immediately pour the finished lotion into a glass jar – one pint-sized or 4 4-oz. jelly jars. Use a spatula to scrape the lotion out of the blender and into the jar. The lotion is finished!

Step 6: Run the blender under hot water, then add soap and blend on high to make cleaning easier.

Use: Use 1/8 tsp. for small children and babies, up to 1 tsp. for adults (possibly more for pregnant women) daily or as needed. Spread on a thin-skinned areas. This lasts for 3 – 6 months.

Caution: Those with an allergy to latex should not use, or should choose cocoa or mango butter instead of shea butter.

I had purchased magnesium oil after finding out how great magnesium is. That stuff burns though! Making the magnesium lotion is a much gentler way to get a good daily dose of magnesium in.

This lotion is best applied on your stomach or thighs area. I normally do my stomach because I figure the good oils in it can’t hurt my stretch marks. :)

I highly recommend the “Healing with God’s Earthly Gifts” ebook, and you can only find it in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle through Monday!

Deborah & Co Is Expanding! Introducing Little Deborah

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

Deborah and Co. is expanding! Little Deborah is a whole new product line to Deborah and Co. Play dresses, books, stories, sewing kits, doll dresses, and paper dolls! | themodestmomblog.com

We have been working on expanding Deborah & Co. for months now, and we are finally ready for a big release! We’ve thought about adding a girl’s line of products to Deborah & Co. for quite some time. Our vision is to encourage women in femininity and modesty. Why not encourage young ladies in growing up to be virtuous young women?

We decided at the first of the year it was time to make our dream of providing resources for young girls a reality. It’s been quite an adventure finding products we want to sell. Our hope is that this is just the start.

The products we have added to start Little Deborah are some of our favorites.

ABC Say It With Me DVD

The ABC Say It With Me Bible Memory Verses DVD is one of our absolute favorite DVD’s. It is just the sweetest 60 minute video! I’ve never had any qualms about letting my children watch this, and even my 4 year old quotes the scriptures from the DVD.

Daughters of His Story Paper Dolls! | themodestmomblog.com

I’m elated to be selling the entire collection of the Daughters of His Story paper dolls. These are beautifully illustrated paper dolls, and each represent an important woman in history.

The Children's Titanic Paper Dolls

The Children’s Titanic Paper Dolls are stunning. Even my 8 and 10 year old boys like to look through these paper dolls. Also included are 2 beautifully illustrated backdrops from the Titanic ship. What I love about these paper dolls is that they already come fully dressed, but they include changes of clothes.

Matching Play Dresses for Girl's and their dolls!

We’re also pleased to offer matching play dresses for girl’s and their dolls! The Abigail Adams dress, the Queen Victoria dress, and the Maid Marian dress are sweet, sturdy play dresses that hold up much better than the average costume. These are machine washable, and I’ve washed my girl’s dresses several times with no problem. Available for ages 1-9.

History Stories of brave women

We will also be selling a collection of history stories of inspiring women from the past. We started listening to the Frontier Adventures of Elinore Stewart in the van, and I became so engrossed in the story I couldn’t stop listening!

You can find all these items and more at Little Deborah. As we raise our own three young daughters, we are excited to offer this new line of products for your family in the hopes of encouraging and blessing you.

Coming Tomorrow! Don’t miss out! 

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

The closer we get to my husband’s graduation, the busier the days are getting! He has portfolio reviews, a speech to give with slideshow presentation, Senior night, touring graphic design companies, applying at jobs, graduation, and a graduation party. This past week has been a blur, and the week ahead of us is very busy as well.

I’m putting up just some random pictures for Modest Monday today. We went to a living history event Saturday, and the first two pictures are from that day.

Denim skirt with cheery yellow blouse | themodestmomblog.comWe took a quick picture before we left. I’m wearing a denim skirt (the rainbow denim skirt is coming back again in May!). It’s my favorite skirt and I wear it several times a week. The yellow blouse is from ThredUP (New York & Company Brand), and reminded me of spring daffodils. :)

Making rope in a ruffle skirt! | themodestmomblog.com

My oldest daughter is making rope at the living history event! I love her new skirt (I’ll let you in on the details of how to get this skirt later this week!).

Family Easter Picture! | themodestmomblog.com

This is our very windy family Easter picture. :) We went to the farm (my husband’s grandpa’s farm) for Easter lunch. It is always so windy there!

I have two huge projects I’ve been working on, and they both are coming this week! Check back here tomorrow for a very special Deborah & Co. announcement. If you have girl’s, you don’t want to miss it!

Then on Wednesday, this amazing, simply unreal, once a year sale is back.

 

I can’t wait to share the details with you!
