I love using magnesium oil!
Magnesium oil is liquid magnesium, which is great for transdermal (through the skin) absorption of the mineral.
My husband and I use magnesium oil on any achy joints or muscle spasms. We also use it when we're feeling a bit run down (spray on your arms or abdomen). I like to spray it on my lower abdomen when I am experiencing period pains, too! I have heard that it helps with morning sickness, too.
Another great use for magnesium oil is as a natural deodorant. It really does work, though you'll possibly find that you need to spray more often than a commercial deodorant.
Magnesium deficiency is unbelievably common in our stressful, modern lifestyle. Signs of deficiency include muscle cramps and twitching (whenever I have a twitching eyebrow or whatever, I immediately reach for my magnesium oil!), poor sleep, fatigue, anxiety, depression, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, hormone imbalance, and irritability.
Spray magnesium oil all over your body (arms, legs, abdomen) every day, for a topical way of supplementing. Watch out for cuts and cracked skin though - it can really sting!
Homemade Magnesium Oil
1. Pour the water into a clean pot and bring to the boil.
2. Add the magnesium chloride flakes to the boiling water and stir until dissolved.
3. Allow to cool completely, then pour into a spray bottle.
4. It's as easy as that!
