In this paper we investigate the influence of the bulk Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction on the magnetic properties of composite ferromagnetic materials with highly oscillating heterogeneities, in the framework of $\Gamma$-convergence and $2$-scale convergence. The homogeneous energy functional resulting from our analysis provides an effective description of most of the magnetic composites of interest nowadays. Although our study covers more general scenarios than the micromagnetic one, it builds on the phenomenological considerations of Dzyaloshinskii on the existence of helicoidal textures, as the result of possible instabilities of ferromagnetic structures under small relativistic spin-lattice or spin-spin interactions. In particular, we provide the first quantitative counterpart to Dzyaloshinskii's predictions on helical structures.
