Magnesium is important for muscle relaxation, nerve function, to reduce anxiety, reduce constipation and promote an overall feeling of calm. You can get magnesium from your food including avocados, bananas, brown rice, pumpkin seeds, dark leafy greens and dark chocolate/cocoa to name a few. To supplement with magnesium to help anxiety and promote a feeling of calm, try spraying this oil on the skin at night before bed.
Magnesium oil is absorbed through the skin after about 20 minutes and enters the bloodstream providing a calming effect. It can work quicker than pills or powders that go through the digestive process. I use this at night before bed during times of stress or if I can’t fall asleep. It works every time to help me fall asleep quickly. Start with 6-8 sprays and see how you do. If it doesn’t affect you at all (you don’t get sleepy or calm feeling), try a few more sprays to find your optimal dose.
- 6 sprays = 100mg magnesium
- Spray onto skin (arms, legs, stomach) rub in and allow to absorb for 20 minutes
- Some may experience a slight tingly/burning sensation from the salt but it will subside quickly
- Can be rinsed off after 20 minutes if desired
