Your skin acts like a revolving door, allowing elements to pass through both ways and anything that touches it, whether it be nutrients, the sun, toxins, air particles, etc… is absorbed in or toxins, sweat, etc… is moved out.
So when nutrients are applied directly onto the skin, their benefits are amplified! And we want to take advantage of that. That is one of the reasons why this essential supplement is so effective when it is applied directing onto the skin.
I have written on the amazing whole body benefits of magnesium and how really everyone to some degree is deficient in magnesium and will experience immediate benefits when starting to supplement. I take magnesium orally and also use my homemade oil on my skin daily, my health issues have improved greatly. The most noticeable for me are no body odor, sleeping deep all night long (that was an issue for me for a while), no more anxiety, any little heart flutters or palpitations I had are completely gone, emotionally I feel so calm and strong, muscle knots are gone and blood sugar is much improved.
The Critical Functions of Magnesium
Magnesium is vital in hundreds of actions in the cells, glands, tissues and the whole body, and these are some of the critical functions:
- Helps to maintain a healthy heart
- Eases muscle knots, cramping and spasms
- Helps heal cavities and tooth decay
- Helps with PMS
- Anxiety, panic and terror attacks
- Helps to balance your body's electrical system
- Alleviates gastrointestinal discomfort
- Helps to regulate blood sugar levels
- Nurtures healthy bones by giving flexibility and rigidity to your bones
- Powerful detoxifier

What is Magnesium Oil?
Magnesium oil is not actually an oil at all. It is a concentrated form solution of magnesium chloride flakes and water, which feels slippery similar to oil, and it is to be applied anywhere on the body in spray.
Another great aspect to the transdermal spray is that you can never overdose, the body takes only what it needs through the skin.
Dr. Sircus, a leading magnesium researcher and author of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, says…
With magnesium oil, the concentrate can simply be applied to the skin or poured into bath water, and in an instant we have a powerful medical treatment.
Intensive transdermal and oral magnesium therapy can be safely applied day in and day out for consistent health benefits.
Magnesium oil is nothing short of a miracle to a person deficient in magnesium. So clear and observable are the effects that there is no mistake, no mysticism, no false claim made.There are not too many medicinal substances or medicines that can make this claim.
It should be noted that pain management with magnesium employs magnesium oil applied transdermally to the skin. Dr. Linda Rapson, who specializes in treating chronic pain, believes that about 70 per cent of her patients who complain of muscle pain, cramps and fatigue are showing signs of magnesium deficiency. “Virtually all of them improve when I put them on magnesium.” (To read more of Dr. Sircus's article)
DIY Magnesium Oil Spray Recipe
- Bring the water to a boil in a non-aluminum saucepan.
- Turn off the heat and stir in the magnesium flakes until well dissolved.
- When cool, pour into your spray bottle. No refrigeration is necessary. Will stay for 6 months.
- Add a few drops of essential oils, such as lavender, thieves or grapefruit.
- Spray on your body and lightly rub it in. It may still feel a bit greasy or moist on the skin. For me, it is fully absorbed without a residue within a few minutes.
- *Use anywhere from 10-30 sprays per day from head to toe. I do recommend spraying on bottom of feet since the skin is thicker and there is no issue with tingling/burning feeling.
Note: After you spray the magnesium oil on your body, expect a tingling sensation, this is normal. Your body will eventually get used to the sensation and it should fad after a few applications, but you can dilute with water if the sensation is unpleasant to you.
While the sensation varies from person to person, typically the areas of the body that are the least sensitive are the areas with the most adipose tissue or thicker skin; so bottom of feet, hips, belly, thighs. Areas that may be more sensitive would be inner arms and legs, so I would avoid spraying the oil in those places. Magnesium sprayed on open sores or cuts will burn, so avoid those areas…such as acne, cuts, scrapes or freshly shaven skin.
No time to make your own spray, no worries!
