I am obsessed with magnesium oil! I have honestly never felt better since I started using it. This recipe came about after I saw a small bottle in a health food store with a price tag of around $30.
Let me tell you a little about magnesium…
Did you know that 80% of us are deficient in magnesium? It is necessary for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body.
Magnesium “helps maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heartbeat steady, and helps bones remain strong.
It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein.
There is ongoing research into magnesium's role in preventing and managing disorders such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes”. While it is naturally present in many foods, unfortunately, our soils are not as mineral-rich as they used to be due to over-farming; this means our crops lack nutrient density.
Caffeine, alcohol, medications, and processed food may also affect our body’s ability to absorb and maintain magnesium levels.
Low magnesium levels are typically diagnosed by symptoms, as it is hard to get an accurate gauge through blood tests alone. Here are a few symptoms of magnesium deficiency:
Depression and anxiety
Insomnia, difficulty sleeping
Low blood pressure
Headaches, migraines, cluster headaches
Muscles aches and pains
Magnesium oil isn’t actually an oil; rather magnesium suspended in water. Research suggests magnesium is absorbed much more effectively transdermally, with studies proving that levels are boosted after topical application. So, I figure I have nothing to lose and everything gain; are you. Ready to give it a try? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the FREE recipe!
Makes: 100 g | 3.5 oz Prep time: < 5 min.
50 g | 1.8 oz hot water (see recipe notes)
50 g | 1.8 oz magnesium chloride flakes
30 drops of essential oils
My choice of essential oils
My favorite essential oils in this recipe are lemon and lavender but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget or those that you already have in your collection.
is important to use oils that are pure, potent, and safe. That is why I choose to use doTERRA oils (this is my personal preference)
1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until magnesium has dissolved.
2. Transfer into a container of choice (I store mine in a master jar and refill a glass spray bottle).
Start with 6-8 sprays – all over the body but particularly the abdomen. You may feel a little tingle or even a burning. If it bothers you, wash it off after 15-20 minutes, but it is fine to leave on. You can also spray directly on ailments for relief. Increase the number of sprays if required and tolerated. Shake well before each use.
Water should be distilled, purified, or pre-boiled and cooled to extend shelf life.
If the tingly feeling doesn’t subside or bothers you too much, spray your feet before bed and wear socks. The same applies when using the spray on children
