How to Use Transdermal Magnesium
Can I use it more than once per day?
Certainly. For example, you can take a few body sprays in the A.M. and when you get home in the P.M. you can repeat or soak your feet in a magnesium foot soak. This is particularly useful and encouraged if you’re not feeling 100%.
What is the benefit of the transdermal magnesium application over oral magnesium supplementation?
Magnesium supplements taken orally are often poorly absorbed and when taken in larger doses may cause diarrhoea. Transdermal application where Magnesium Life Magnesium Oil is applied topically to the skin bypasses the digestive system and raises levels effectively.
Is magnesium “oil” actually an oil?
No. Magnesium “oil” is a coiner term for a highly saturated solution of magnesium chloride in water along with other trace elements, which happens to present itself in an oil-like texture due to its hygroscopic nature (attracts water molecules).
Can I use magnesium oil as a massage oil?
Absolutely! In fact, the use of magnesium oil in massages melts away knots and painful areas much more effectively than massage alone. Not to mention the added benefit of increasing the absorption of the magnesium through the skin.

Those people with sever renal (kidney) insufficiency (failure) or very low blood pressure should seek the advice of their health care professional first. Otherwise transdermal application of magnesium oil is completely safe and once can not overdose.
Will I experience any detox symptoms?
You may initially, but this is quite normal, as it is a sign that your body is eliminating unwanted toxins from the body. A magnesium foot soak is helpful during this process as it not only is soothing and gentle, but it assists with the body’s absorption of this essential mineral.
