    DIY Magnesium Lotion to Energise, Soothe, Relax & Detox | Biome Naked Beauty Bar



    1. Infuse the calendula petals in 1/2 cup of boiling water for 20 minutes. Strain well.
    2. Place the magnesium flakes into a jug and pour in the infused calendula water. Stir until the flakes have dissolved. Set aside.
    3. In another jug or glass mason jar add the beeswax and cocoa butter. Place the jar into a saucepan filled with about 6cm of water on medium heat and melt.
    4. Once the beeswax and cocoa butter have melted, carefully remove the jar from the saucepan and stir in the apricot kernel oil. Let cool slightly.
    5. To the blender add the magnesium water and turn speed to medium.  Very slowly pour in the melted mixture in a fine stream. You will start to see a thick and creamy emulsion form. You may need to scrape the sides down as you go. Once you’re happy with the texture, stop blending. Give it a mix through with a spoon to blend in any excess oils.
    6. Scoop into your desired storage jar and seal.

    How to Use

    Use after a shower and before bed. Avoid broken skin.

    As it contains magnesium, you may also feel a tingling sensation, but this is completely normal.

    This recipe makes enough to fill 1 x 220ml jar.

    This recipe contains water and doesn’t contain preservatives, so store in a cool dry area or in the fridge and use within 2 months.


    As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

    Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you’d hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
