Well, Jane, I have to laugh at myself because I really wasn't waiting for it to dry completely before I jumped into bed.  My new method works just fine:  I stand in the nude at the bathroom sink (I don't look in the mirror ), spray the mag chloride on and then by the time I have finished up at the sink area with whatever I have to do the mag chloride has dried.  Then I put on my nightgown and hop into bed.  No sticky sheets anymore!!

I can identify with that!  Really interesting that it's made such an impact on your sleep.  Might just have to try it.

Thanks Lola and Mrs. Rodgers!
I believe the first mention of transdermal mag chloride was from you, Mrs. Rodgers and I am eternally grateful to you for drawing my attention to that.  Both books were helpful, too.  My daughter is now reading the books so I'm glad to pass the information along.

Quoted from Melissa_J


This doesn't completely answer the question, but opens up another option:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnesium_chloride

Nigari, the coagulant used in making tofu, could be used in the solution, as it is primarily magnesium chloride. Then you wouldn't have the other stuff in there.



Great minds think alike!  I found a link to nigari a couple of weeks ago, I just haven't taken the time to call!

Hello Everyone,

The Magnesium Oil and Magnesium Gel arrived and I have used them.

Well, it definitely makes my silver and brown hair darker brown right
off the bat. Used it with my shampoo, rinsed it out and then sprayed the 50:50
solution of Magnesium Oil on my wet hair and left it on for 20 minutes, rinsed it out and
voila! A little darker.

It also has diminished the broken veins in my legs as I spray the 50:50
solution on my legs at night. I don't need to cover
then up with make-up.

I haven't noticed too much change in my sleep (I take valarian and GABA
regularly) although last night I did have some dreams I actually remembered.

It does burn my face though especially the 50:50 Magnesium Oil...Ouch and
redness. So maybe a more dilute solution. Any suggestions out there about this?

Now should I try the Prill Beads for drinking water?
Or should this be another thread?

Thank you Mrs. Rogers for the foot soaking $1.89 bag of Magnesium Chloride.
At that price I just might soak my feet!

Thank you all.

Cordially,
Margaret

Hi Margaret, thanks for that detailed report.
You got some instant results, that is great.
I ordered mine 3 weeks ago and still didn't receive it.
Keep us informed.

ok, couple of months ago, finally got my mum onto magnesium supplements being aspartate/orotate/chelate (equiv 200mg Mg) and now she's worried it might be reacting with her medications... felt a bit breathless about an hour after taking the Mg tablet.

*Does anyone know of reactions with high blood pressure meds? Her doc said this Mg blend is ok. Mum vaguely remembers a naturopath saying ages ago to watch her Mg levels.
She will stop taking it, but we're both disappointed if that is the cause, as the Mg is the only thing that has helped her night cramps (stopped them in 2 days).

I'll read up on the links, hoping the transdermal Mg might be ok for her. Then we gotta find it here in Oz. Might be more effective for both of us O's, rather than tablets.

Hi Lola,

I put the Magnesium Oil and water on my hair
whenever I wash it...twice a week.
After I talk with Joan I might try the Magnesium
Oil full strength on my hair...maybe.

I tried the Gel and it definitely does not have
such a noticable effect on my hair...but works
great on my back, knees, elbows and feet.

I'd be interested to know if the daily application
on your hair works faster with darker results.

Thank you.

Cordially,
Margaret

Margaret asked about the face burning from magnesium oil and I think if you just continue using it, the burning will lessen.  I'm into my third or fourth week of using the oil full strength on my face and body and my face really burned at first ( it felt burned and also looked pink or red in some areas) but over time that has greatly reduced.  It's actually barely noticeable when I apply it now.

I wonder if the more sun damaged our skin is, the more sensitive reaction we will have for a while.  The first few days I used the oil it peeled my lawn mowing tan right off.  Now the skin is much smoother and while I'm now slightly tanned again it looks much healthier.  I think the website for the oil said it would take a few months to heal sun damage.

Unfortunately, I haven't lost any moles yet   but I'm being patient!

Book store finally got my book in - took 2 weeks. It's very interesting.

I ordered a gallon - I'll start slow and see if it effects my blood pressure.

I ordered extra spray bottles so I can share samples with family.

Thanks Alek for the book link,
Also got more info from mum's chemist who confirmed that Mg is good to alleviate high blood pressure, so she's back on the supplement. I'm keen to find some Mg oil though(for both of us), after reading this thread!

food sources high in magnesium are beneficial nuts and neutral oats, rice and
amaranth.
required for production of gastric acid each
day and is also needed to stimulate starch-digesting enzymes. Magnesium
rejuvenates and prevents the calcification of our organs and tissues.

I'm off to the asian market today.  I'm all out of sweet rice flour and need to make cookies tonight for a party.  They should have nigari, so I'll pick some up and get started with that in a spray bottle and see how it goes.

Thanks for the list of food sources, I need to eat more nuts.  I assume it's probably just brown rice that has a lot of magnesium?  

I've had low magnesium and low blood pressure, so I don't think adding to the magnesium should hurt, as long as I keep up on my other mineral intake (calcium, sodium, potassium, etc.)  I'm sure it's all about balance.  My sodium has also occasionally been low, so I indulge in sea salt wherever I can.

Just so I don't have to read the whole long thread, could you tell me where to get the Magnesium Chloride?

Hi Victoria,

Here is the wevsite that sells the Nigari at $1.89 a bag:
http://www.simply-natural.biz/Nigari.php

If you want to buy the Magnesium Oil at a good price
that website is:
http://www.health-and-wisdom.com

Thanks, Karen 74, for the feedback on the burning that
happened on my face after starting to use the magnesium oil.
It only burns around my nose and down the laugh lines to
my mouth. I'll try it again but maybe with a more
dilute solution and build up to full strength.

Paula Begoun (I use her facial care products and makeup)
advises against irritating the face. That's my concern...
long term effects.

Thanks everyone for this very helpful and informative thread.
It's a sticky, yes?

Cordially,
Margaret

I have enjoyed reading this thread. Lots of good info. I have a friend with fibromylgia and I told her about the mag. oil. She ordered some and will let me know how it works.

I am looking at ordering some for myself. Mainly for digestion problems(constipation). Does anyone know if I will get the effects of the mag. oil aborbed thru the skin or would it be better swallowing it to get into the digection tract.

Hi BuzyBee,

I was putting the Magnesium Oil on my stomach and
back areas as well as the bottoms of my feet every
night. After several weeks I started having stomach
cramps. The conclusion was that I was getting
too much magnesium so I changed my routine.
A break from the Mag Oil for a week and now
I only put it on the backs of my legs and bottoms
of my feet. So far so good.

As for ingesting it.....ughhh! I brushed my teeth
with it once and swallowed a little. Once was
enough. It was like tasting the Dead Sea...unbelievably
salty! You might want to check the website to
see what they advise regarding swallowing it.

Cordially,
Margaret

Thanks Margaret for sharing that. There was one website I visited that had the mag. oil drops you put under your tongue or in water/juice to drink. It is most likely deluted down with water to make it more eatible.

And from further reading it sounds if though the mag. oil is absorbed thru the skin it goes directly into the blood stream and takes action.

This gets me thinking about swimming in the ocean which is a big bath of salt water. You have to wonder if you get any of the wonderful magnesium results from that.
