What's all the buzz about magnesium you might wonder?
Well, it's a fabulous and very important mineral which most of us are deficient in, unfortunately.
One amazing fact about magnesium is that you can apply it to the skin or bath in it and the skin will absorb it! That means that you aren't in any danger of over supplementing or disturbing your bodies mineral balance. Really: It is that easy.
It has countless benefits from muscle recovery and pain relief after exercise to helping get rid of headaches or relaxing and de-stressing your entire body. It can relief migraines and menstrual cramps and it is even safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It's also very detoxifying to bath in magnesium flakes. People with eczema and psoriasis find that magnesium baths help the skin to repair itself and heal their conditions quickly.
I have been using Amazing Oils products, they were the purest most potent products I could find.
You can order them via Nourished Life, my fav toxin-free beauty and health online store.
I love both the Organic Magnesium Bath Flakes and the Organic Magnesium Oil.
All their products are sourced naturally in Australia and are superior to Epsom Salts, as the naturally occurring form of Magnesium is five times more powerful. (For the geeks: Amazing Oils uses Magnesium Chloride which occurs naturally, whereas Epsom salts are Magnesium Sulphates, a manmade version which consists of larger molecules, which a harder to be absorbed into the skin!)
I LOVE using my Magnesium Oil Spray after an intense Yoga session, it really helps to relief any pain in the muscles and I won't feel sore the next day.
I also use the spray, whenever I feel sore in any areas or if I feel I could do with an extra dose of stress relief and relaxation! The bath salts are especially great for this, they make unwinding at the end of the day so easy.
The products are unscented and can be used by the whole family.
