How To Make Magnesium Oil: Reduce Stress & Sleep Better!

Making your own magnesium oil is extremely easy, great for your health, and can save you money.  I will share with you the step-by-step instructions for how you can make our own magnesium oil.  You only need 2 ingredients and a spray bottle to store your magnesium oil in, easy peasy!

I have been using magnesium oil spray daily for quite some time and I am enjoying many health benefits from it.  Most people are deficient in magnesium and don’t even know it.  You can read my post about the invisible deficiency of magnesium here for more information.   Magnesium is so very important to your body and it is becoming more difficult to obtain through diet therefore it is beneficial to supplement magnesium to maintain your healthy, happy, human body.  Applying magnesium spray to your skin can be the easiest and most effective way to boost your magnesium levels.

So, let’s get to it.  Follow these simple directions to make you own magnesium spray for ultimate health (printable version at the bottom of post).

Place your distilled water in a pot and bring to a boil.

Place your magnesium chloride flakes in a glass dish.

I spray 20 sprays on my body daily.  I spray it on my legs, arms, and stomach.  I usually do this after a shower, be aware if you have recently shaved it can tingle/sting a bit…similar to when you shave and take a dip in the ocean, or before bed.   If you use it after the shower simply let it dry before applying any moisturizer.

My kids ask for magnesium oil for their growing pains.  My son likes me to spray it behind his knees before going to bed.

I discovered how to make my own magnesium oil from Wellness Mama.  I couldn’t believe how easy it is to make!  I, like Wellness Mama, feel that making my own magnesium oil is safe and can definitely tell that my health is benefiting from this supplementation.   However, Ancient Minerals, the maker of the magnesium flakes that I use to make my own magnesium oil, recently posted about the differences between homemade magnesium oil made from magnesium flakes and their pre-made magnesium oil, you can read about that here.
