Dandelion And Magnesium Cream

dandelion cream for sore legs

You gorgeous soul, you have the wisdom, skills and ability to tap into plant medicine in ways that supports the harmony of your whole body mind complex.

Think of it as a resource support... your bringing in these easy to make medicinal recipes and using them when you instinctually feel you need them.

This cream is brilliant for help with relieving leg cramps, back aches, growing pains, restless leg syndrome and various related ailments.

It doesn't tell you what the cause is, but it's a great support in the meantime. You know what's in it and how its been made. I recommend having a session where you'll get to the causation for the symptoms and help the body to heal at the same time.

There’s something magical and synergetic about the combination of magnesium and dandelions, but if you’re allergic to dandelions you can get an agenda session for this, in the mean time you'd avoid it and could try arnica flowers, comfrey or goldenrod instead.

Lets make it!

𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽 𝟭 – 𝗚𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗳𝗹𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺. Try to find ones that haven't been poisoned with spray, these will deliver toxicity into your body, best yet grow your own.

Spread your dandelions in a single layer over a clean cloth or paper towels and allow them to air dry for a few days or use a dehydrator. It's OK if some turn fluffy, they are very usable.

𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽 𝟮 – 𝗢𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗱𝗿𝘆, 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝗴𝗹𝗮𝘀𝘀 𝗷𝗮𝗿 and cover with around two to three times as much light carrier oil. You could use sunflower, sweet almond, olive, avocado and jojoba.

There are a few infusing methods to choose from, depending on how big of a hurry you’re in.

𝑸𝙪𝒊𝙘𝒌 𝒊𝙣𝒇𝙪𝒔𝙞𝒐𝙣: Set your jar of dandelions and oil into a saucepan containing a few inches of water (no lid), forming a double boiler of sorts. Place over a low burner and heat for around 2 hours. Keep an eye on things to ensure the water doesn’t evaporate out. The water shouldn’t simmer or boil. After 2 hours, remove the jar from the pan and set aside to cool.

𝙏𝒓𝙖𝒅𝙞𝒕𝙞𝒐𝙣𝒂𝙡 𝙨𝒍𝙤𝒘 𝒊𝙣𝒇𝙪𝒔𝙞𝒐𝙣: Cap your jar of dandelions and oil and tuck it away in a cool, dark cupboard for 4 to 6 weeks, shaking occasionally. A cool, dark area is suggested since extended exposure to heat and light may begin to degrade the quality of the herbs and oils.

𝙎𝒖𝙣𝒏𝙮 𝙬𝒊𝙣𝒅𝙤𝒘 𝒊𝙣𝒇𝙪𝒔𝙞𝒐𝙣: Secure a piece of cheesecloth, coffee filter or something similarly breathable over your jar of dandelions and oil. This layer allows any potential condensation to escape, but will keep dust and flies from contaminating your oil. Place the jar in a warm sunny window. Depending on how hot it gets, your oil may be sufficiently infused for use within 3 to 5 days. You can use it right away, or tuck it in a cabinet for a few more weeks, for a stronger oil.

Once your oil is ready, strain it and store in a cool, dry place until ready to use. Shelf life should be around 9 to 12 months, depending on the quality and type of oil you use.

𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽 𝟯 – 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗻𝗲𝘀𝗶𝘂𝗺 𝗹𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻!

~ Add the dandelion-infused oil and emulsifying wax to a heatproof jar or upcycled tin can. In spite of its name, magnesium oil is actually water based, so measure it out with the distilled water and aloe and place in a 250 ml canning/mason jar.

~ Place both containers into a saucepan containing 1 to 2 inches of water, then set the pan over a medium-low burner for 10 minutes. This gives time for the wax to fully melt while the water, aloe, and magnesium oil combination reaches a nearly matching temperature. (Around 65° C) Remove from heat.

~ Carefully pour the hot contents of the two containers into a heatproof mixing bowl or measuring jug. As they’re poured together, the two mixtures will begin to emulsify upon contact and turn a slightly milky yellow colour… Great!

~ Using a fork or small whisk, stir the lotion briskly for a minute, then set aside to cool for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, as the lotion cools and thickens.

~ Stir in the lavender essential oil, if using. If you’re adding a preservative to help your homemade lotion stay fresh for several months, do so now as well. If you don’t add a preservative, shelf life is only around 1 week, if stored in the refrigerator.

~ Pour the lotion into a pump-top bottle or glass jar. The lotion may start off on the thin side, but will continue to thicken up some over the next 24 hours.

~ Yield is approx. 110 ml. Apply a small amount to legs, feet and back at night, or as often as needed throughout the day... and find out what the cause of this is, or it will lead to the body becoming more unhappy.
