How To Make And Use Magnesium Oil Spray

Magnesium is one of those nutrients that it is difficult to get an adequate amount of. Rather than simply taking magnesium supplements or trying to eat enough foods that contain magnesium, you can also use a magnesium spray. You can either purchase the spray or make it yourself.

Making Magnesium Oil Spray

To make magnesium oil, you will need to purchase magnesium chloride flakes. You will also need to purchase or make distilled water. If the water is not pure, this will interfere with the ability of the magnesium to absorb into the skin. The distilled water should be poured into a pot. The magnesium spray will be one part water, one part magnesium flakes. Add the magnesium flakes to the boiling water and allow them to dissolve. Once they have dissolved, remove the pot from the heat source and allow the water to cool. Then, place the magnesium in a glass spray bottle.

Purchasing Magnesium Oil Spray

If you do not want to go through the trouble of making magnesium oil spray yourself, you should consider simply purchasing a bottle of spray. The great thing about this option is that no preparation is necessary. Simply pull out a bottle and spray it on your skin in order to absorb the magnesium.

Applying The Spray

The magnesium oil should be applied to the stomach, arms, and legs. When it is applied, you will likely experience a tingling. This is a normal experience that will go away after a short period. The tingling sensation becomes much less common after you have been applying the magnesium oil for awhile. You may also notice some residue left behind, especially if you live in a dry climate. The residue is normal and harmless. One solution is to apply the magnesium spray and allow it to sit for 20 minutes before taking a shower.

Avoiding Negative Side Effects

Start with 6 to 8 applications a day. Then, gradually work your way up to 20 applications of magnesium spray a day. Doing this will allow you to monitor the effects of the application of magnesium and reduce the application if you decide that you are unhappy with some of the effects. For example, magnesium can have an effect on your bowel movements and you may want to reduce your use of magnesium until you're happy with your bowel movements. If you notice any skin irritation, dilute the magnesium oil.
