Why does it tingle when I apply it to my skin?
This can happen if the body's cellular magnesium
levels are low. The skin can tingle as the magnesium is absorbed through
the skin rapidly and as magnesium is a large molecule it can cause this
sensation. It is important to remember though that it isn't an allergic
reaction to the magnesium, as it is found naturally within the body and is
vital to good health.
Another factor that can influence this reaction is the amount used on one area.
We recommend using a small amount per area and increasing gradually. Also if
you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation so avoid these areas.
This reaction will decrease as your body's cellular magnesium levels increase. Transdermal magnesium helps to increase your body's magnesium levels. To reduce the reaction we recommend the following techniques:
(1) Apply only a small amount to any individual
skin area. Massage in well.
(2) Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores
(3) Vary the application areas to increase the
bodies overall magnesium level.
(4) Little but often is the key. Massage it in and
wait for a minute or so then try a little more.
The key is to apply transdermal magnesium wherever
it feels comfortable. The magnesium, once absorbed into the skin, is circulated
around the body so there is no direct need to focus just on a single area.
However, once your magnesium levels begin to rise you will find areas that were
sensitive before are no longer so.
Magnesium Flakes can provide a gentle solution to raising your levels.
Added to a bath or foot soak they can provide a lower concentration of the
solution that will still help increase your magnesium levels.
If you are unsure if this product is suitable
for you, we always recommend talking to your GP before using a topical

What is the source of the magnesium chloride hexahydrate?
The magnesium chloride is a solution mined in Veendam in the
Netherlands. The magnesium chloride is mined from an ancient seabed that has
been condensed and purified for over 250 million years. To mine the magnesium
chloride spring water is carefully pumped down to dissolve the seam and the
solution is simultaneously brought up to the surface. The magnesium chloride
concentration is 31%, perfectly stable to avoid recrystalising. The brine
solution that is brought to the surface is what is bottled for Magnesium Oil
Original spray and Magnesium Soak, nothing is added to it to keep the spray as
pure and as universally acceptable as possible.
