Cracked Heel Whipped Butter!

Feet a little rough?  Or maybe you just want to keep them baby soft!  This recipe by my friend, McKenna Gordon, is awesome!  I love the fact that it has magnesium in it too.  So many people are deficient in magnesium.  Enjoy!

Cracked Heel Whipped Butter Ingredients

•¼ cup Shea Butter OR Mango Butter

•¼ cup Coconut Oil

•3 Tablespoons Beeswax

•¼ cup Magnesium Flakes + 2 Tablespoons boiling water

•7 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

•7 drops Cypress Essential Oil

•5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

•5 drops Cell Therapy Essential Oil Blend

Directions:

Scoop the magnesium flakes into a small bowl and pour 2 tablespoons of boiling water over them stirring until it dissolves. This will create a thick liquid. Set aside to cool.

Fill a small sauce pan with 2 inches of water. Then place an empty quart size mason jar inside the sauce pan. Add the coconut oil, beeswax and mango/shea butter to the mason jar and heat it on medium.

The beeswax will be the last thing to melt. When everything is melted, remove the jar from the pan and let the mixture cool to about room temp and slightly opaque. At this point, pour it into a medium sized mixing bowl.

Use a hand blender or immersion blender on medium speed and start blending the oil mixture.

Very slowly, over the course of about a minute, add the dissolved magnesium mixture to the oil mixture while continuing blending until all of the magnesium mix is added and it is well-mixed.

Add the essential oils and whip until combined.

Place in the fridge for 20 minutes and re-blend to get body butter consistency.

Fill your jar and put it on your bedside table, or store it in the fridge for longer shelf life and an amazing cooling effect.

The first three nights: Apply a thick coat and wear socks to bed. After major cracks have gone away, apply less thick and rub in like a lotion before bed, no socks necessary. For even better results, exfoliate dry feet first using a pumice or foot file, then soak your feet in hot epsom salt water, let dry and apply the butter.

Organic Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds

Did you know that Hemp is one of the earliest known cultivated plants with a history dating back thousands of years.

The hemp seed is one of the best vegetarian sources of protein and is highly absorbable.  Additionally, the seeds contain all the essential amino acids making hemp a complete protein.  Hemp seeds possess an ideally balance ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  It is an excellent source of magnesium and a good source of iron!

I love to add them to my smoothies!
