What is Magnesium?

Magnesium is a vital mineral essential for many body functions, including energy production, muscle and nerve function, blood sugar control, and bone health. It's involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions and helps maintain heart rhythm and a healthy immune system. Due to modern diets often lacking in magnesium-rich foods, many people may benefit from magnesium supplements to ensure they get enough of this crucial nutrient to support their overall health and prevent deficiencies.

What is Magnesium Spray?

Magnesium spray is a topical solution containing magnesium chloride that is applied directly to the skin. When sprayed on the skin, it allows magnesium to be absorbed transdermally (through the skin), bypassing the digestive system. This method can lead to faster and more efficient absorption into the bloodstream and tissues.

Magnesium plays a vital role in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including muscle relaxation, nerve function, and energy production. By applying magnesium spray, you can help alleviate muscle tension, promote relaxation, and improve sleep quality, all while boosting overall magnesium levels in the body.

Where does your Magnesium come from? 

We use Magnesium Chloride harvested from pristine lakes in the Tibetan Plateau. The high altitude (3,200 metres above sea level) coupled with the lake’s isolation ensures absolute purity. It’s food grade and has organic classification.

How should I apply Magnesium Spray?

Simply spray it onto your skin and gently massage it in. You have the flexibility to use the sprays on nearly any part of your body. We recommend beginning with the soles of your feet to allow your body to gradually build up its magnesium levels. The large pores on your feet facilitate faster absorption into the bloodstream, leading to more effective and rapid results.

What is the expected duration of a bottle?

Each 200ml bottle typically offers approximately 106 applications, with the exact number depending on individual usage patterns.

What's the perfect timing for maximum effectiveness? 

Most of our customers find applying it before bed works wonders, promoting a restful night's sleep. But don't limit yourself – feel free to use it any time of the day. Your comfort, your choice.

Is it suitable for all skin types?

Yes, it's safe for all skin types.
As with any topical product, some individuals may experience a mild tingling or itching sensation, especially if they have sensitive skin or are magnesium deficient.

To minimise potential irritation, start with spraying your feet, and gradually introduce other areas when comfortable. You can also dilute the spray with water if necessary.

Is it safe to use during pregnancy?

Yes absolutely! Our Pure range is entirely safe for use throughout all stages of pregnancy and postpartum. While our Sleep range is safe during the 2nd + 3rd trimester. Our products are incredible for helping soothe restless legs, ease body aches, and encouraging a good night's sleep. 

It is important that during pregnancy you avoid certain essential oils. Our Muscle and Femme Range contain essential oils such as wintergreen and clary sage that are not recommended during pregnancy.

We also recommend consulting a healthcare professional before incorporating any new product into your routine during pregnancy or while nursing to ensure it's the right fit for your unique needs and circumstances. Your health and well-being always come first.

Is it suitable for children?

Our Pure and Sleep products are the safest option for your little ones, suitable for children aged 12 months and older. These products make a wonderful addition to their bedtime routine, helping them relax, unwind, and prepare for a restful night's sleep. They work wonders in calming their nervous system after a busy day, alleviating growing pains, minimise teeth grinding and ensuring that their young bodies have the essential magnesium they need for optimal function. 

We recommend spraying their feet for the first few weeks, and then gradually introduce other areas. If you notice any itching or tingling, you can dilute the formula with water or apply coconut oil to their skin. If you have any concerns, consulting your doctor before using any new products on young children is a wise step. Your child's safety is paramount.

Why might my skin experience tingling or itching when using magnesium spray?

Tingling or itching sensations when using magnesium spray can occur for several reasons:

Deficient in Magnesium

Being deficient in magnesium can result in sensations like tingling or itching. Incorporating magnesium-rich baths and soaking for 20 minutes can help replenish your magnesium levels more rapidly, making your skin less prone to tingling or itching when you spray magnesium topically.

High Concentration of Magnesium

Magnesium oil often has a high concentration of magnesium chloride, which can cause a tingling or itching sensation, especially if you have not used it before or have sensitive skin.

Skin Sensitivity

Some people have more sensitive skin, which can react to the concentrated magnesium solution. This sensitivity might result in tingling, itching, or a slight burning sensation upon application.

Dry Broken or Damaged Skin

Applying magnesium spray on dry, cracked, or damaged skin can increase the likelihood of discomfort. The magnesium solution can irritate these areas more than healthy skin.

To reduce the reaction, try these techniques:

  • Begin by spraying on the soles of your feet before other body parts.
  • Apply a small amount and gently massage it in, gradually expanding to new areas as you become comfortable.
  • Boost your magnesium levels by taking a magnesium bath before using the spray.
  • Dilute the formula with water or apply coconut oil to you skin before use.

Please avoid

  • Applying it to broken or recently shaved skin.
  • Refrain from spraying immediately after a shower when your pores are more open.

Remember, magnesium is an essential mineral for our bodies to function properly. Don't be discouraged by the initial itchiness, as it should subside, leaving you feeling truly rejuvenated.

Do your products contain any artificial fragrances or colours?

Not a trace. Our products are entirely free of artificial fragrances, colours, and harsh chemicals.We are committed to making safe, natural products that deliver real results. We want to bring as few ingredients into your family's daily routine as possible.

When can I start to see results?

The time it takes to see results varies from person to person. Some might experience benefits as quickly as overnight, while for others, it could take a month or a bit longer. It's essential to remember that magnesium deficiency doesn't develop overnight, and the replenishment process follows a similar pace. Since our bodies use magnesium continually, consistency is the key to success.

When is the ideal time to use magnesium spray?

The ideal time to use magnesium spray can vary based on your individual needs and preferences. Here are a few common times when people use magnesium spray:

Before Bedtime

Many people find it beneficial to apply magnesium spray before bedtime. It can help relax muscles and calm the nervous system, promoting better sleep quality.

Pre + Post-Exercise

Athletes and individuals with active lifestyles use their magnesium spray before or after exercise to help with muscle recovery and relaxation.

During Times of Stress or Tension 

If you're experiencing stress or muscle tension during the day, using magnesium spray as needed can provide relief.

Relief for Menstrual Discomfort 

Our customers have found a soothing solution by applying our magnesium spray to their abdominal area, easing menstrual cramps and discomfort naturally.

On Specific Areas of Concern 

You can apply magnesium spray directly to areas of the body that require targeted relief, such as sore muscles or areas with muscle cramps.

Magnesium Chloride vs. Epsom Salts: Which is Better for Topical Use?

Magnesium chloride is frequently favoured when it comes to topical applications, thanks to its higher concentration of magnesium ions. This greater concentration facilitates more effective absorption through the skin, delivering superior results for muscle relaxation and overall well-being.

How can magnesium help me sleep?

Magnesium chloride can help improve sleep quality through several mechanisms:

Muscle Relaxation

Magnesium plays a crucial role in muscle function and relaxation. Applying magnesium chloride topically can help relax tense muscles, reducing physical discomfort that might otherwise interfere with sleep.

Nervous System Regulation

Magnesium is vital for regulating the nervous system. It helps balance neurotransmitters, which are chemicals that transmit signals in the brain. This balancing effect can promote a sense of calm and reduce stress, making it easier to fall and stay asleep.

Stress Reduction

Magnesium helps modulate the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which is responsible for the body's stress response. By reducing the production of stress hormones like cortisol, magnesium can help create a more relaxed state conducive to sleep.

Melatonin Production

Magnesium contributes to the regulation of melatonin, the hormone responsible for controlling the sleep-wake cycle. Adequate levels of magnesium can help ensure that melatonin production is not disrupted, thereby supporting a healthy sleep pattern.

Improved Sleep Quality

Studies have shown that magnesium supplementation can improve various aspects of sleep, including the time it takes to fall asleep, sleep duration, and sleep efficiency. This is likely due to magnesium's combined effects on muscle relaxation, stress reduction, and nervous system regulation.
