What magnesium oil?

Magnesium is a mineral. We have always obtained magnesium into our diet from our food, but particularly now we 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. 

Where do we get magnesium oil?

Generally food would be the best source of magnesium but with the soil depleted we now need another way to get it. Firstly, we don’t have to take it either although it is one way but a slower way.  Secondly, the other way is a topical a method called transdermal. Magnesium Most importantly magnesium is transferred via the skin, into the blood then around the body. into the skin to the body via the blood.


Is magnesium oil an oil?

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 rub 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 Rub

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 and rejection of magnesium, To alleviate that adding the magnesium chloride oil to coconut oil will support the body in carrying the magnesium through the skin a barrier and into the blood where it is needed.

To make a magnesium rub we need to use a product that can easily enter the skins pores. We don’t want you to feel greasy either so we have chosen full hardened  coconut oil that is whipped. When the coconut oil is whipped it is lighter and fluffier as it is full of air and this makes it more able to go through the skin barrier without leaving a residue on the skin, but if you want to lose that coconut fat residue then simply make the lotion
