I purchased this oil after reading that ingestion of magnesium supplements do not absorb well. Then you also have the matter of them going through the digestive tract and possibly causing upset stomach. I have been taking magnesium supplements for years and feel I still did not have a normal magnesium level. I read other reviews about this oil stinging and I do have semi-sensitive skin. So far, I have applied it full strength to one calf as a patch test and had no rash or visible reaction, but it did sting. I mixed it 50/50 with distilled water in a spray bottle and sprayed my legs and it stung too much so I washed it off. The next day I sprayed my chest and back and could tolerate it. I like it best on my feet and had absolutely not stinging there. It feels a bit drying, but then again, it is salt! So I think it takes some getting used to and experimenting with where it will work best for you, but feel it will be so worth the benefits of absorbing the magnesium transdermally.

This product has been a life saver. I have horrible insomnia. from not being able to sleep, to poor quality and waking to early, you name it. I also have tachycardia and other heart issues. After taking this product for a week, my sleep improved dramatically. It did not work right away, but really noticed a huge difference in my sleep after about a week, and I have very severe insomnia. Eventually though my sleep quality became worse, very vivid dreams, tossing and turning etc. (note: the magnesium oil did increase my dreams and gave me vivid dreams after starting it but they didn't disrupt my sleep initially). I reduced the amount of oil I was applying and it fixed this problem. I also found that since taking the magnesium oil it has relaxed my heart and my tachycardia doesn't act up. I was taking about a quarter size amount rubbed onto each foot 3 times a day. That amount turned out to be too much as described above. I have lowered the amount to about a dime size rubbed between my palms and spread behind my knees 2 times a day. I can adjust more or less as I feel the need. I also apply it to my back and neck when my muscles are sore and it helps so much with sore muscles. Another benefit that I wasn't even expecting is that my migranes aren't nearly as bad as usual. I still get the migranes once a month but they are much more mild. My Doctor was so happy that I finally found something to help with my long-standing insomnia issues. He also advised me that because the epidermis on our feet is the thickest on our bodies, that I was essentially wasting a lot of product and not absorbing as well as I could if I were to apply it to an area where the skin is thinner. ie. the back of the knees, which is where he suggested I put the oil instead of the bottom of my feet. Since my body is absorbing more of the oil by placing it on the back of my knees, I also need less product and save money that way! Check out my profile for more reviews.

Saying good bye to my sore back and stiff shoulders for the 1st time in so many years... Amazing! It's a little itchy at 1st rub in. But 2nd and 3rd will have lesser itchy feelings.

It is everything it is cracked up to be. I mix 50-50 with distilled water and spray from neck down my whole body after a shower and let air dry a few minutes. Then I rub almond oil or one of the other essential oils over my body, then let that soak in and I'm ready for the day. I can only assume it absorbs into the body, but it does feel great. At first there may be a little prickling in places, and if you have a cut or rash it will really prickle, but over all, it feels wonderful. I will certainly keep buying it.
Great for muscles, skin, you name it

I rub Mg oil on my body as well as my face. Since using on my face nightly my rosacea has gone into remission.

I mix this with water and spray in onto my feet while I'm relaxing on the couch after my shower. I think it's what gives me a good sleep at night. I can tell there's a difference in the quality of sleep I get on nights when I forget to use it. I also rub it into my shoulder whenever it hurts after sports and it works wonders!
Nothing short of AMAZING!!!

Love topical magnesium oil. I have tried other magnesium oil products from this company (mag gel with aloe, mag oil with aloe). Overall I like the company ethics. Great quality and purity tested. Have used topical mag oil now for five months and the health benefits are incredible! To name a few: headaches, lower back aches, neck aches ... all gone. My vision seems to be better as well. I have actually been able to cut back on my chiropractic visits since my lower back has improved. I also spray some on my toothbrush for gum health and it also removed plaque. Much better dental check-ups.

Helps eliminate body odor. After I shower I rub this on my armpits. I still sweat a little, but there's no stink! Magnesium oil also eases aches and pains. As others have said, it does tingle or itch or even sting for the first couple of uses, but dilute it with water 50/50 and the sensation will only last a minute.

Not an easy way to get Mg into the body. I tried diluting by 50% and spraying on after shower, but I don't like the way it makes your skin feel, a little oily residue and mildly itchy/irritated. I have found the best way for me to use it is full strength on achilles/calves, where the skin is not sensitive and I don't notice the oily residue as much. I have had achilles inflammation and I was hoping it would improve with the Mg, but it hasn't.
