Try letting your natural oils build up on the skin and then spray… BUT I must tell you, regardless of soap use, spraying the oil around my collar bone and shoulders still burns like crazy and gets super red- feels like a sunburn. So I just stopped spraying there.
Thx for sharing about how much mag is approximately in a number of sprays. That info is hard to find! Another thing that might help is not bathing or showering in chlorinated water. My skin feels dry and itchy when I shower in chlorinated water.
I do think it matters what KIND of soap you use. I only use natural soap made from coconut oil or palm oil. I feel like it is crawling. Even if I take a shower and rinse it off. I tried to trooper it through and suck it up, but to no avail. It was even giving me a rash. So I finally started spraying it in my mouth several times a day. Am I even absorbing it this way?
Yes, you are absorbing it. Actually the mouth is one of the best ways to absorb it. The mouth and privates are the best, then probably the armpits, and then the face and neck, and then the trunk or torso, and lastly the extremities.
You could also try bathing in it. Another way to go is magnesium foot soaks. I have started using the spray as deodorant, but was not sure if that was a good place to spray it on.

I just received the 1. Thanks for this wonderful post. I can easily make the oil from the flakes. I just got my mag and am making it now. Somewhere I got a recipe ratio of 30 parts flake to 80 parts water. I calculated the volume of a bath enough to immerse my trunk being 5.

It is simply no longer possible to naturally harvest a true pure magnesium oil from modern bodies of water, due to contamination by heavy metals such as mercury and lead. My doctor suggested I take Magnesium for my diabetes. About 3 weeks after using it, I realized that it reduced the pain in my back.
I buy the Swanson brand on Amazon. I only put it only on my lower back and behind my knees I read it was an absorption point.
I am a big fan of Magnesium oil. I use magnesium oil to bring down the blood pressure and to cure palpitations and arrythmia, as these sypmtoms are often caused by a deficiency. I also took vitamins and minerals and co-enzyme Q 10, and an adrenal supplement. How long does it typically take to correct a magnesium deficiency through transdermal spraying of magnesium oil?
Stress like illness, mental stress and worry, and things that stress the body physically like exercise, heat or cold, or toxic load will use up magnesium.
So it is not an exact science as to what you need to use. As a guideline I use my blood pressure, taking more if it rises, and also tight muscles and spasms in my back tell me I need some more.
It is good for pain, just spray some onto a sore place and it often helps. It could be different for other people but this works for me.

I lie full immersion in my mag oil therapy tub daily and my skin completely accepts without rash, itch or burn. It depends on how much you take, what form of magnesium oral or transdermal , how much stress you are under, how much alcohol and caffeine you consume, how much phytic acid you consume, etc. Absorption of oral supplements may be extremely poor in M.
What a timely article! I find that magnesium oil has been very helpful with a lot of skin irritations, moles and scar tissue. I also use it as a deodorant and find that it works amazing. Ok, so I just sprayed some on my privates: It does sting, OUCH! Thank you for all the great information. Also you may have luck experimenting with different areas of the body. I had a reaction on my feet but nowhere else… it may have been because I was using a TON on my feet… I overdid it a bit: Espom salt does not absorb the way magnesium chloride magnesium flakes does.
Look up on the thread on Dec 12 and there is a whole conversation explaining Epson Salt thing, Alternatively do a Control F and a search function should appear. Type in Epson salt and you should find all the times it is discussed in this thread.
I was wondering if you have tried the magnesium lotion or putting the mag oil in a lotion base for transdermal application. I wonder if it stings less than direct mag oil on the skin. Thanks for all the great info! I was nearly in tears. Hi AM, Thanks for the recipe — my magnesium flakes came today so I made the oil right away, and I sprayed my first dose tonight. I tried my forearm first — expecting a terrible burning sensation and nothing!!
So, I sprayed another 8 sprays on my torso. No pain, only a barely noticeable sensation. Thanks for the great information and the recipe. You are my go-to girl for great food recipes, inspiration, and healthy living tips! Thank you for all that you do! Our analists in cooperation with the MHI were performing tests and this is their conclusion: We do not recommend using flakes as a basis for making high concentrated magnesiu moil. The flakes are produced by an evaporating process.
This concentration represents the right proportions to get magnesium chloride hexahydrate [ MgCl2. Due to heating for evaporation a very small amount of MgCl2 will decompose to MgOHCl magnesium hydroxide chloride , MgCO3 magnesium carbonate and some HCl hydrochloric acid in the vapor stream, on parts per million level.
These products are responsible for the white haze that can be seen after dissolving the flakes. These products are not hazardous but are products of the necessary production step to get flakes. For topical applications with higher concentrations, we recommend the pure natural magnesium oil straight from the source without any heat treatment. This magnesium oil is especially selected for this application and is secured by the Zechstein Inside batch protocol. Hi Fernanda, thanks for sharing that article and the link.
The article here confuses me. I read -use distilled water only- read it maybe here, or somewhere else, dunno where because I have visited many sites tonight about how and what re DIY magnesium oil. I am sure that I and highly likely most people who do not use a Mag. I like to be very much so on the safe side re this mineral that is said to be should be the no. Thanks for reading this! Hope to hear from you. I have been using magnesium oil for several weeks now I ordered the oil soon after I read your original article.
I still stunk to high heaven and I was spraying up to mg in my mouth throughout the day. So, I decided that transdermally really was the best way to go and went back to that. I sprayed it into my mouth for almost 6 weeks and got nothing! And within a week of putting it on my skin, I was BO free!! I suppose I will never know if I was storing up the magnesium all that time and it finally became effective, or if the transdermal route was what my body needed.
Thank you for good ideas! Since you say bathing in ocean water provides enough magnesium, will it perhaps be good enough to bath the feet in water with seesalt in it?
A 25 kg bag of gross not grey but white seesalt cost close to nothing where I live. I used magnesium oil for two weeks on my legs to avoid cramping and my legs swelled with the salt…I had to stop using it as I gained water weight. My husband used it also and the same happened.
Consult with a nutrition-oriented practitioner about cramping. My toes and calves tend to cramp. I discovered that Calcium deficiency is the cause for this many other symptoms.
The best form is Lactate, but usually only available in professional products such as Standard Process. Next best is Citrate, which some health-food stores carry, but few pharma stores carry. The most common and useless form is Carbonate. The body simply cannot absorb it. I used magnesium oil on my legs for leg cramping…it worked well, but I then got swollen legs by water retention.
Anyone else had a problem with that? If you are applying mg of magnesium to your legs 8 sprays , then you must consume at least mg of calcium.
This prevents the risk of gallstone formation. I take mg of calcium to be sure. I got swollen ankles and lower legs but persevered and found that this swelling has now gone away.
I suspect these and other symptoms are just our bodies adjusting to MgCl. I have a large amount of magnesium flakes that were bought to make tofu, but this will be a HUGE blessing to my loved ones!
I read through the comments here, but never got a straight answer. Somewhere where it can be easily absorbed? Are the lower legs not a good option? Next best is extremeties. I am thankful that when you wrote this a few months ago, it caught my notice and I filed it away!
I immediately bought a bag of Ancient Minerals, and it just got in the mail today. I made up a batch. However, I have what may seem a silly question. I only have a gardening spray bottle, which gives off quite a bit more liquid per spray than a cosmetic sprayer does. I just want to check and adjust how many sprays I do to reach my goal per day. Thank you for any help. You might want to buy one and then you can store your homemade magnesium oil in it.
That is what I do. The mag oil from ancient minerals has mg of mag per 3 tsp. The flakes are 15g per cup. I like your site! I am gluten,soy,casein,corn,egg…everything free!
Almost sugar and chocolate free — hard for the chocolate. I will eat it unsweetened, Sharffenberger is lovely. Been trying to get well since Been taking T3 since Go through cycles of feeling pretty well and then crash.
Thanks for the site — really like it and your humor warms my heart. Liz hi, my message to you off topic magnesium oil but I hope this allowed. I have no idea if that amount is bad bad bad, or maybe beneficial. A lot of confusing health info is available, and it is hard to know who is spot on.
I live in a tiny town, and its a miracle that we have a health food shop. I am using 2 tabs in a good size mug of not very strong coffee. I then found coconut milk in our tiny wonderful health food shop in town, and now I am free from using sugar and unhealthy pasteurized milk rigged with antibiotics etc. Pure Stevia does not feed the creatures craving sugar that live in our intestines and will cause a lot of problems all sorts when kept happy with sugar all sorts. Another valuable discovery I made is that a lack of iodine can cause serious fatigue and other symptoms of dis-ease.
As it so happens Ancient Minerals who sell magnesium flakes, even in Ireland, do sell -nascient- sp? Iodine is another one of those substances many!
Iodine has been the victim of a witch hunt caused by the adherents of orthodox allopathic medication, and in the world of true healers iodine is rehabilitated, and greatly honored.
Hope this info can be of benefit for you. Thank you so much for posting this info! I heard about mag oil from T-Tapp, but was so happy to find this cheaper alternative. Anyway, I got my flakes in the mail today. I had read on some website that mag oil helps with wrinkles, so one of the places I put it was my face. Then I went to lay down for a quick cat nap. I am a chronic mouth-breather and drooler at night.
It felt so good to breathe that I jumped out of bed to get some work done! Do you know if there is a product that contains more minerals than just magnesium? Hi, thanks for your great website!
Just another tip for those on your way to using no deodorant: Works perfectly for me! Though I have to say, no deodorant sounds even better: Do you think that this magnesium oil could cause increased menstrual bleeding? I started using it a couple days ago. I started my period last night and I am literally having to change every 15 to 20 mins.
I think it may have caused it. It does increase bleeding. I got a spray bottle but it does not work and I have not gotten another one yet. I was using a cotton ball to put it on. Maybe I got too much. I was advised to mix at a ratio of 80 parts water to 30 parts mgcl2. I just read at eHow site to mix 1: Unless I find a more trustworthy source, I will just have to experiment and report back.
If you know more than I about this, let me know. Cheese will forward your reply…. There is no oil added to a recipe, except the suggestion of adding essential oils, which I would not do. Essential oils are useful, but best not with magnesium. If anyone supplements Calcium as well, keep the milligram ratio in mind. More Mg is ok, but not less than Calcium. Avoid Ca Carbonate, and favor citrate or lactate form. I suggest you make the oil in a tub and store it in container with tight lids.
Let the containers sit open for 24hrs before sealing, to make sure you have complete dissolution. Where to get a sample of my brew tested for Mg strength? How to calculate my absorption rate using a body immersion method. Once these questions are answered, I will be in position to openly assist others with the authority of my experience. The trans-dermal therapy is a bit harsh on the skin, something like swimming in salt water and drying off without showering.
So, people with oily skin and possibly acne could benefit for this. Probably as good as ben gay, icy hot type stuff with menthol silicate. Can you use magnesium chloride in liquid form in place of flakes, also how much would you use diluted in water.
Just found this blog while researching topical magnesium. Recently I began using coconut oil topically for the many health benefits found in my research. Wondering — how to use magnesium oil in conjunction with coconut oil? My skin seems to be thoroughly enjoying the switch to coconut oil but my muscle cramps and twitching — especially at night — and other symptoms imply that Mg oil is in order, too. Muscle cramps and twitching may be a calcium deficiency … try calcium lactate.
It worked to eradicate my muscle cramps almost immediately. Like no more the next day: Thanks for the kind advice, Jen. Two weeks ago I had a sudden leg cramp while standing.
My calf muscle siezed up, foot shot forward, toes locked…wound up in the floor. Really, really glad I was at home!!! Have religiously been taking Epsom salt bath and now using Mg gel in addition to the Epsom salt bath. Have had it checked. Continuing to research the mysteries of why I should be having such adventures at the tender age of 55! Hi Donna, Have you had your blood calcium levels checked recently? To Donna Calahan re Calcium failing to stop cramping.
I would suggest you might need the polyunsaturated essential fatty acids of vitamin F which effectively deliver calcium from the gut to tissue. I have been looking into Mg Oil. I have some Mg Oxide in capsule form. Can I use this to make the oil? Also do you think it helped you with melasma at all, if you had any?
Puncturing capsules sounds like painstaking labour! I went to a chemical supplier and bought a 25lb bag of magnesium crystals light, flake-like. No oily feel, no salt anywhere , felt like i was spraying just water. Hi, Is the magnesium chloride from the Zechstein seabed for internal use also or only for external?
Also, after one has reached optimal cell saturation after months, how frequently to use for maintenance? Using it for myself and my husband who has heart disease but now our daughters friend who needs help with alcohol. I will make some next time.
I used your recipe and it worked great for two days. Now my magnesium has crystallized in the bottom of the container. I know that I can reheat and re-bottle but, does anyone have a remedy to stop it from crystallizing? JOHN, why are you dissolving mg2 crystal into heated water?
I mixed a large quantity 55LBS into room temp. It completely dissolved in less than 24 hours. And has stayed in solution for 3 months so far. Evaporation is very very slow as I keep the tub well covered. Corrosion began adjacent to the tub, so I have sanded and primed with non-corrosive primary 2 coats, then a finish coat. And been spraying it mainly on my trunk and chest. Claire, it is, of course, possible to overdose on anything. Ancient Minerals recommends 8 pumps or sprays which shoud equal mg of Mag.
So, if you lose count, for example, and spray 12, not 8, that is not likely an overdose. I say this forum is not the place to ask technical questions of safety. Find a trustworthy natural health practitioner and consider all such questions there. I regard this forum best suited to questions about making mag.
To the oady that asked about spraying into the mouth…. Have you tried footbath? If you have reaction to applying it to skin, I suggest you need to do a detox program first. Perhaps the strange palpitations I felt were a coincidence. To Claire, and all other women reading this, if you are pre-menopausal, dairy may be sufficient.
Symptoms that it is not sufficient might be toothache when no known dental issue exists; joint ache when you have no history of joint issues; arch and calf cramping, esp. Not doing so, will eventually make you susceptible to hip and other bone fracture, loss of teeth, etc. Very common events for older women. Remember that the body will maintain required levels of blood calcium at any cost because it is life or death critical.
Magnesium supplementation should be greater than calcium, approximately 2: This is to ensure against kidney stone development. Dear Ann Marie, I would like to make my own magnesium oil, but in Czech republic I can get pure magnesium chloride used for food industry as additive dont know which properties they use… number E abotu which there are not known any harmful effects.
I guess that Zechstein is already ready already found but as for the other they have to let water evaporate and remove other monerals from the sea salt….
What do you think? I just would like to feel more safer, not making you responsible at all for my decisions, of course, just if you would know anything more, I would appreciate it very much, thanks anyway for very interesting and useful articals! I will never be without it from now on!!! If and when you are past menopause, consider supplementing calcium lactate or calcium citrate.
Most women, especially those who experienced childbearing, are deficient. That deficiency is the most common cause of bone and joint fractures in later years. If not replenished, her bone structure becomes brittle. For both genders, deficiency can be the root cause of toothache and decay, chronic headaches, as well as restless leg and muscle cramping.
If you are spraying mag. It nearly useless to the body, for lack of absorption. Lactate form is best, citrate form 2nd best. This recommdation has kept me symptom-free since I began it in , and at 70 I feel fit and strong. I wish the same for all who read these words. I just made a batch of it, sprayed an neck area, stomach area, and arm. I hardly felt any tingling sensation.
