Expect a tingling sensation when you first start to use magnesium oil. If this is your first time using magnesium oil, apply it to a small test patch first, to gauge the intensity of the tingling.
Many people say that the tingling will decrease over time, as your body becomes less deficient in the nutrient. This was definitely true, although it still feels slightly unpleasant for a few minutes after application. But the health benefits are totally worth it!
Although it varies from person-to-person, there are general areas that are less sensitive to the magnesium oil and make better application sites. In my experience, areas with more adipose tissue (a.k.a. the plump areas) are less sensitive. Try the thighs, hips, and belly. Shins and forearms also work well for me. Try to avoid the creases of the elbows, behind the knees, creases of the bottom, and the neck if you are experiencing tingling. These areas are usually more sensitive.
Do NOT apply magnesium oil to your legs after shaving them – ouchie! I recommend waiting at least 12 hours before applying to shaved legs. If you experience no tingling when applying magnesium oil, you may be able to tolerate post-shave application.
Dry brushing makes the skin more sensitive to magnesium oil. (is a practice to simulate the lymphatic system and improve skin tone). Dry brush in the evening, before my shower, and I find that applying the magnesium oil immediately post-shower creates intense tingling. So, I wait until the morning to apply magnesium oil, which gives my skin a period to “de-sensitize” from the dry brushing.
You may notice a slight white film or powder on your skin after the magnesium oil dries. You can wipe or rinse this off, or briskly rub your skin and it will disappear.
Wait at least 30 minutes before showering or bathing after applying magnesium oil, to ensure that the magnesium has absorbed into the skin and will not be rinsed off
I love these magnesium flakes. I’ve been having the best baths ever since I started using these. Will buy again!!
Thank you. I am always so happy with all my purchases.
Hi there, I am not one to usually leave reviews, however, in this case, I make an exception. I made a batch of magnesium oil in the hope of helping with insomnia but mostly for my migraines. I started using this mid-August and as we roll through fall, I find it fantastic that I can no longer tell when it's going to rain because of a massive barometer change headache. It has also helped with restful sleep which is a bonus I'm willing to take. I've had people use this after the gym, those with general muscle cramps, and post-injury aches and pains. All positive results. One note to adjust this recipe though, I add the 100x aloe vera powder to soften the application. Highly recommend this product!
