Coconut Oil Body Butter With Magnesium

New Picture


Written by: Drew Canole

This recipe is one of my favorites. It is loaded with beneficial properties for your skin and will leave you feeling refreshed, clean and moisturized. I can’t wait to see if you like it! But first, a little run down of our star ingredients.

Coconut Oil

If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin! Coconut oil is a great moisturizer that is non-greasy, chemical-free and absorbs quickly. Even though it is solid at room temperature, it quickly melts once in contact with your warm hands and face. Coconut oil contains antioxidants and antibacterial properties that make it anti-aging and also provides a protective layer on your skin from free-radical damage.

Coconut oil helps with magnesium and calcium absorption. This is highly beneficial to overall body function and can help combat a number of symptoms associated with deficiency in either of these minerals. Calcium is important for maintaining strong bones and teeth and helps regulate healthy communication between organs in the body.

Magnesium is the second most abundant element in human cells and helps regulate over 325 enzymes and several bodily functions. It is a tricky mineral to obtain on the Standard American Diet, which is why a lot of people are deficient.

Magnesium is one of those minerals that, unlike other nutrients, the  body can’t produce on its own. You may be wondering why this is important for something you’re only going to be putting on your skin? Actually, anything that you put on your skin is also absorbed into your bloodstream, which is why we need to pay attention to the products we use and the ingredients in them!

Shea Butter

Shea Butter comes from the nut of the karite shea tree, which can be found growing all over Africa. It contains many vitamins and minerals that are particularly beneficial to the skin such as vitamin A and vitamin E. It is thought by many to quickly relieve dry and sun-damaged skin.

Shea Butter contains natural anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and, thanks to its fatty acids, may help reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen.

Coconut Oil Body Butter With Magnesium
  • ½ Cup Magnesium Flakes
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
  • ½ Cup Shea Butter
  • Several drops of an Essential Oil of your choice
  1. Pour 3 tbsp of boiling water into a bowl with the magnesium flakes and stir until dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  2. Put the coconut oil and shea butter in a mason jar and set inside a pot of boiling/hot water until melted. Let cool until room temperature.
  3. Pour into a bowl or blender. Using the blender or a hand-held blender and slowly, drop by drop, blend the magnesium mixture into the oil and shea butter.
  4. Add essential oil. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes, then re-blend to get the butter-like consistency.
  5. Store in fridge or at room temperature for up to two months. May be hard when you first applied but will melt nicely once introduced to your skin.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
