What is Magnesium Oil?
Magnesium chloride in water is called Magnesium Oil due to its slippery texture making it feel like an oil, although it is not technically an oil. Magnesium Oil is a widely accepted term for the highly saturated solution of magnesium chloride in water and is also called magnesium chloride brine.
Magnesium Oil can be sourced from ocean waters, but the purity of this form of Magnesium Oil is questionable. Ocean waters are exposed to industrial pollutants, requiring a high degree of filtration, so there is cause for concern.
Health Leads Magnesium Oil is a mineral sourced from the ancient Zechstein® seabed located 1500 to 2000 metres underground in northern Europe. Uncontaminated by modern man and surface pollutants, Health Leads Magnesium Oil is a high quality product with no added ingredients.
What does Magnesium Oil do?
Zechstein® seabed Magnesium Oil is:
• Rapidly absorbed into the skin
• Easily applied in a convenient spray
• Efficiently achieves cellular magnesium levels
• Uncontaminated and highly concentrated
Is transdermal magnesium better than oral magnesium?
Yes. When Magnesium Oil is applied topically (massaged into the skin) it does not pass via the digestive system and is absorbed faster and more fully than tablet or capsule supplementation. Transdermal magnesium is an effective way to supplement as our modern diet is often low in magnesium.
Suggested Adult Use
Can be sprayed onto any area of the body. Apply 1 to 3 sprays on initial application.
Alternatively, put 1 tablespoon or more into bath water and soak for 20 minutes.
Use to relieve stress, aches and pains. Can be applied as required. Apply to wet or dry clean skin, ideally after showering.
• For joint or muscle pain apply as needed
• If you experience some slight skin irritation, dilute the oil with 1 part water making a 50% strength solution
Please Note: After application you may notice a slight salt-like mineral residue is left when the oil dries. This is normal, especially in dry climates or heated indoor areas. If you do not like the mineral residue left on the skin, it is advised to apply the Magnesium Oil 20 minutes prior to showering each day. After 20 minutes, the majority of the magnesium ions have been absorbed and you may rinse off the mineral residue.
It is recommended to remove any body lotions, creams, and moisturisers prior using Magnesium Oil, which can hinder uptake of magnesium ions by the skin. When using Magnesium Oil at full strength, avoid direct contact with eyes, mucus membranes, and other sensitive areas. If redness or irritation occurs, rinse with cool water and cease use.
Frequency of usage
It is advisable to begin the first few days of application with modest use, and gradually work up to full amounts.
Many researchers feel that the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for magnesium is far too low and is set at the minimum acceptable level to stave off deficiency symptoms, not to maintain good health. According to Dr. Carolyn Dean MD, a respected medical authority on the subject, research over the past 20 years has shown that even under ideal conditions approximately 300mg of magnesium is required merely to replace daily losses.
Chronic health complications, emotional and physical stress, physical injury, athletic exertion and poor lifestyle/dietary choices, all increase daily magnesium requirements. Women who are pregnant or lactating also have elevated magnesium requirements but must consult a doctor or health practitioner before using.
Avoid contact with eyes.
Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Supplements are not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and exercise.
