What is Magnesium Oil and Why do we make a Magnesium Lotion?

Magnesium is a mineral. We have always obtained magnesium into our diet from our food, but as most of us are aware, our food sources are not as robust and full of vitamins and minerals like they used to be years ago. Today we know the food that our grandparents ate was more nourishing and it wasn’t just organic it was Beyond Organic. We need magnesium in our diet every day as it can’t be stored in our bodies. It is also used for over 800 enzyme systems to perform daily and is 6/8th of the reason we have energy. We now have another source besides food for getting magnesium. It is a topical method and it is called transdermal as it transfers magnesium into the skin to the body via the blood. Magnesium oil isn’t an oil like olive oil or coconut oil, nor is it like an essential oil like frankincense or myrrh.  Magnesium is more a brine made from the sources of magnesium flakes and water. It has an oily texture as it goes on your skin, but dries like salt.  Magnesium Flakes are sourced from the Deep Sea, the Ocean, and from deep mineral tables within the earth . Magnesium flakes are made out of  Magnesium Chloride. Magnesium Flakes are made into Magnesium Oil, which can be sensitive on the skin. By putting magnesium oil into a magnesium lotion you get a full dose of magnesium without any irritation to the skin and needing to wash it off after 20 minutes.

Why put Magnesium Oil in a Lotion ?.

Magnesium Oil in really a brine and can feel like it is burning the skin. Putting it in a lotion stops that feeling. Because it is well know that Magnesium oil straight onto your skin can have some side effects if you body needs magnesium . Internally, according to a Dr. Walt Stoll, Magnesium deficiency inhibits the body’s ability to absorb magnesium.” The body can internally reject what it needs when it comes to the mineral magnesium. This occurs if your intracellular levels s of magnesium get low enough to show symptoms. What can happen in some people is  the intestinal lining cannot absorb magnesium effectively. This brings us to the biggest benefits of topical, transdermal magnesium, the intestines’ are not involved. This has a double impact, one the intestinal has time to heal itself so the lining can absorb magnesium again and we get a full doze as the liver and kidney are also not involved.  Externally this low level of magnesium displays itself as skin irritations, so to alleviate this adding the magnesium chloride oil to fractionated coconut oil will take away this effect and allow the magnesium to go into skin to your blood.

In deciding on what product to use in a lotion it was important it that can easily enter the skins pores and stays liquid.  Fractionated coconut oil is perfect for this as it never hardens. through a healthy process the fat has been removed. You get the pure benefits of a liquid coconut oil that leaves no fat residue on clothing , towels when massaging  and your skin feels soft and subtle.
