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 up to 5
times faster than oral supplementation.
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 are open.
(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

Can I use transdermal magnesium during pregnancy?
Magnesium is very important during this time for both mother and baby
as babies are born with twice as much magnesium as calcium, this is what makes
them so flexible and why their skin is so elastic and soft.
Our pure magnesium products are perfectly suited for during
pregnancy. Magnesium Oil Original spray, Magnesium Flakes and Magnesium Lotion
all contain only a pure form of magnesium chloride.
There are no restrictions with dosage level of these products
during this time.
What is the source of the magnesium chloride
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.
