Magnesium Oil

Maybe some of you have discovered this already, but it was new to me.

Even in the summer, my feet are still freezing with the air conditioning everywhere. I get leg foot and legs cramps mostly in the middle of the night. I started using magnesium oil before I go to bed and the leg cramps have subsided and best of all my feet are warm when I wake up in the morning. We'll see how much it helps in the dead of winter, but it certainly a step in the right direction with no drugs involved. I use Life Pro Pure Magnesium Oil, but I suppose any brand will do. It leaves a somewhat tacky feel on the skin( it is really not an oil, but magnesium chloride). Massage it in and leave it on for a while so it will absorb into your skin, then rinse it off if you don't like the residue it leaves. Hope it helps.

Hi Faith,

I also have discovered magnesium oil.and use it mainly to help with sleep problems, also aches and pains if I've been overdoing The brand I use is Better You and does not leave too much of a residue I'll have a look at Pro Pure anyway as I think one can get resistant to always using the same. Wonderful product anyway!


Hi Foxglove,

Where do you apply it when used for sleep problems?


Hi faith89,

Recommended apply where skin is thinnest (so that it is absorbed easily) - usually inside of thighs or top of chest also inside of arms. If you decide to five it a go I'd be interested to know how you get on
