Magnesium deficiencies are more common than some might think. With most of us increasing our daily intakes of calcium, the amount of magnesium we need to sustain healthy living also needs to increase. Most of us, however, fail to recognize the balance between magnesium and calcium and why it is vital for our bodies. The fact is, magnesium is essential for just about every body function: from bone growth to cell regeneration to managing stress! With that being said, getting more magnesium is as simple as spraying magnesium oil directly onto your skin. While it may be expensive to purchase magnesium oil, it is very easy to make at home so that you too can enjoy the healthy benefits of this essential mineral.
What You Need:
- ½ Cup Magnesium Chloride Flakes
- ½ Cup Distilled Water
- Glass Bowl Or Measuring Cup
- Spray Bottle
On a stovetop, bring distilled water to a boil in a cast iron or stainless steel pan (do not use aluminum). Be sure to use distilled water, as it will be free of trace elements and minerals which might otherwise impair the effectiveness of the magnesium chloride flakes. Using distilled water will also extend the shelf life of your magnesium oil spray. Add the magnesium chloride flakes to the glass bowl and pour the boiled distilled water over the flakes. Stir well to completely dissolve the magnesium flakes, and allow the solution to cool completely. Transfer your magnesium oil to a spray bottle.
How To Store Your Home-Made Magnesium Oil
To extend the shelf life of your homemade magnesium oil spray solution, keep the mixture in a cool, dry place. Your homemade solution will have a shelf life of around 6 months before the magnesium begins to lose some of its healthful benefits. Store under a bathroom cabinet for quick and easy use after a shower or bath.
How To Use Your Homemade Magnesium Oil Spray:
Approximately 8 sprays on your skin per day should give you the added boost of magnesium you need to get the optimal results. Spray a light mist onto your body after a shower or bath while your skin is still lightly damp and your pores are still open. This will allow for maximum absorption of the magnesium oil into your skin. For best results, use every day. This homemade solution will offer amazing benefits to everybody, but particularly people who suffer from skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin.
Making your own magnesium oil solution is a great way to enjoy the healthy benefits of magnesium without having to pay a fortune for the exact same solution at a retailer. Magnesium chloride flakes are relatively inexpensive, and the solution is very easy to make. Just a half cup of magnesium chloride flakes and a half cup of distilled water is all you need to reap the rewards of healthier bodies and skin with your homemade magnesium oil.
