ritual:
I dry body brush then shower, and apply the mag oil first after I towel dry, and my other body oil containing lavender to soften skin.....


Body brushing is GREAT for cellulite!!! I've been doing it for years.

Christa,  I received my mag oil in the mail yesterday from the source you recommended.  THANK YOU!  Unfortunately I did not think ahead and had not bought the distilled water to dilute it.  I'll get some today.  However, not wanting to wait, I did pour a small amount into my hand and rubbed it on my hips once after my shower and again before bed last night.  It definitely burned, which I assumes means I am magnesium deficient?  It will be interesting to see if the burning will go to a tingling once I dilute it with water.

Also, I wanted to let folks know that the same source sells a book, The Magnesium Factor by Mildred S. Seelig, M.D., MPH, Master, American College of Nutrition and Andrea Rosanoff, Ph.D.  Frankly, I am shocked that neither my cardiologist, PCP or naturopath recommended magnesium to me for my recent onset of hypertension.    Given my family heart disease history, one would think that this would have been something that at least ONE of them recommended.    The subtitle of the book is, How one Simple Nutrient Can Prevent, Treat, and Reverse:  High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Other Chronic Conditions.  HELLO!!!!

First off, I want to send a very warm thank you to you, Christa for bringing this to my attention!!!  Second of all, I want to tell you all how grateful I am for finding this forum.  I have Lola and Andrea to thank for that.  Third, I am going to be sure to post that people buy this book if they post a thread on high blood pressure, heart disease, syndome X, diabetes or high cholesterol.  I am not saying this will eliminate my hypertension, but it sure is a great start.  Who knows maybe I will be able to come off the hydrochlorothiazide!

I just started the book and the authors talk about muscle aches.  I have been having unexplained muscle aches lately.  Hopefully all of this will resolve as well.

I'm still trying to figure out the routine for mag oil. It seems like i'm supposed to put it on freshly washed skin, and then wash it off 20-30 minutes later. It's not practical to take 2 showers every day!

If I put it on half an hour before my shower (which can be hard to organize, but is sometimes do-able) then I worry it's not being absorbed well in dirty skin. But if I spray it on after my shower, I feel "unclean" all day, like there's a thick layer of sweat on my body all day.

I spray it on my legs and thighs 30 min before the shower, then rinse it off. Then later in the day (closer to bedtime) I spray my arms, neck and stomach. I can handle the upper half with the oil on, but the legs I can't stand, it feels dirty and icky. The only way I can have the mag oil on my legs without rinsing it, is if I mix it with coconut oil...then it doesn't hurt and it feels more like a moisturizer. I put like a teaspoon on my hand, then spray it four times with the mag oil, and mix it a little bit with the other hand, then put it on.

I am happy to report that I had a small skin tag on my neck that fell off. It took about 1 week. First it started getting puffy and it hurt pretty back if my hair brushed up against it. Then it turned darker, then black, and then the other night I went to see it and it was gone.

oh, I forgot to add, if you dry brush before putting it on (even if you wash it off afterward) it will prob be absorbed better.

OK, maybe I'll try to do that dry brushing thing again. For a while, I was waking up with my daughters at 6:45 AM and spending time with them until 7:00 when the bus came, then spraying on oil and hanging out in my nightgown until 7:30 when DS woke up, at which point I'd shower and get dressed while he watches half an hour of TV and then I'd make his breakfast, pack his lunch, etc, and get him on the bus at 7:40. The past few weeks, I've been waking up with DS (usually before his TV show, but not always) so that hasn't worked. I'll aim for that again though- wake up with the girls, dry brush, mag oil, hang out for half an hour, then shower and dress while DS watches TV.

Today, I didn't shower this morning because I just didnt' ahve the energy to do so. I walked a mile on the treadmill late this morning, then showered, and I'm now hanging out in my nightgown covered in mag oil. I plan to shower in about 20 minutes and be dressed again when DD2 gets home from school. This is working for today, but I can't count on this!

This is an interesting video on trandsdermal magnesium oil. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgxZ_azNySU&feature=player_embedded#at=393

Shows how to use the spray.

I learned a few things I didn't know.  First is that if the mag oil stings, it's reached a part of your
body that's overly toxic.  Secondly was learning that each cell of the body contains a magnesium ion.

No intense reaction would occur from application when magnesium is sufficient.

The magnesium ions have been absorbed when you see the salty ash left by the spray after it dries.

I put mine on after my shower, before my body oil.

A couple of things I wanted to mention.  I have an ongoing rash on my chest that I think is from the Mag oil.     Also, when I put it on my shoulders and upper back, they turn bright red and it burns.     Do you think I should cut it with more distilled water?

Is there any place on your body that doesn't give you a rash when you spray?  I probably think
you should change locations of application and maybe add more water.  You can also do this
as a foot bath.  Add a few ounces to water, and soak feet for 30 minutes.

Chloe, I don't seem to get a rash on my arms, legs or abdomen.  My Derriere seems to get red, too!  

My arms and legs are definitely the parts of my body with the least amount of fat on them.  Do you think that might have something to do with it?  The parts of my body with fat on them are better absorbing the mag oil?

I can certainly try to add more water as well.  Thank you for the advice.

How long have you been using the mag oil? It might be a 'detox" kind of reaction from the mag oil on cells that are full of toxins.

I had a LOT of irritation in some areas a few weeks into using the mag oil, especially the spot  between my breasts (about 2 square inches of skin)  where I managed to get about a dozen pimples at once. During this time, I still used the mag oil on that part of my b ody, but I made sure to rinse it off after 20-40 minutes so it wouldn't continue to irritate me all day.

I'd suggest rinsing off the mag oil after about 30 minutes, at least until the rashes clear up. That's enough time for all the mag to be absorbed, but it still gives your skin lots of healing time in between.

I really think magnesium oil is most irritating on areas of the body with high toxicity.   Watch the
video from the link I posted above....It explains why it burns or irritates.... It still burns a bit on my arms...but not on my legs...but burns on tops of my feet.  

When I first used the mag oil about 3-4 years ago, anywhere the oil touched my hands, they
wrinkled.  It was bizarre.  Even if I washed it off after applying it all over my body, my hands looked
like they had soaked in salt water for days...shriveled skin on my palms.  Doesn't happen now.

Patty, I can't answer you about the fat issue with certainty but it's for sure fat cells hold onto
toxins. So maybe this explains your irritation?  Still can't say for sure.

Ruthie and Chloe,

I have not been rinsing it off, either.  I will try to apply it 30 minutes or so before my shower, although that is difficult with my schedule.  I know some folks apply it after their shower, as well.

I did not apply it to my chest today, as the rash is quite itchy and I want it to clear up a bit more.  Last night the itchiness woke me up, as I am also experiencing peri-menopause, so when I get the night sweats it exacerbates the rash on my chest . . . one step forward, two steps back . . . but I am not giving up!

Thanks!  I'll keep you posted. . .

It stings like crazy on my thighs...the place where I have the most fat. I spray it everywhere but that's the only place where it hurts. Oh and my face...but it stopped hurting after like three times. My thighs still hurt and turn red...but I don't care! Today I was thinking "wow this would be a good form of torture for criminals, spraying them with mag oil and tying their hands so they can't scratch" .

Jesi, you are too funny.  

I had an MRI today so I decided not to spray it at all.  It was probably a good break for the rash on my chest.  I will start again tomorrow and let you know!

Patty that's exactly what happened to my husband...I sprayed him the first or second day I received my mag oil (on his back and neck) and he didn't itch at all which I thought was weird. The next day when he came home, I glanced at his neck and freaked out because he had a million red bumps on it...so I checked his back too, but that wasn't so bad, mainly his neck. After 2 days or so it went away completely. Why don't you try not spraying it there at all and just spraying all your other parts? You'll still absorb it, and it won't give you the rash...I have little bumps all over my chest (not red ones, almost invisible ones that you can see in the sun) and the mag oil makes it worse...so I don't spray my neck/chest anymore...and it got better.

when I use the mag oil straight up (w/o diluting) it stings like crazy, but if I mix it with a little bit of coconut oil or lotion, it doesn't sting at all (and yet I know I'm deficient)...so in your case the gel might have some aloe vera or something that helps with the stinging. If it stung a little bit it means your body could use it. I'm glad it helped!

My husband had radiation to his throat/neck for metastatic cancer of the base of the tongue 5 yrs ago.  He has many side effects from the treatments.  One complication is that the muscles and tissue of his neck are sclerotic, hard as a rock.  It is really bad and causes him much discomfort.  He lost a lot of weight and I tease him and tell him he looks like Barney on the old Andy Griffith show.  Good spirited, don't worry, and he loves Barney Fife so that is a compliment to him. His chest and upper back muscles and tissue are also affected.  His doctor has never thought physical therapy would be of benefit, told him he just has to live with it. Nice doctor, we are very fond of him, but he says that is just the way it is.  We made an appointment for Monday, because it has gotten so bad, to see if he might think differently.  May have to cancel it.

He has taken magnesium for quite a while because of pretty severe constipation from medications he has to take.

Today, we received our magnesium oil.  I sprayed it on his neck and rubbed it in, told him to shower in 30 mins. and left to pick up my granddaughter. When I got back I checked his neck.  We could not believe it! The change in the feel of his neck was beyond drastic.  We could manipulate the muscle, the tissue under the skin and the skin.  We can't wait to use it tomorrow.  I am going to put it on our Head and Neck Cancer list.  He had the same cancer as Michael Douglas with many complications that Mr. Douglas did not have.  Too much to write about now.
