Topical Magnesium Chloride

  • Relaxes tense muscles
  • Eases aches and pains
  • Softens and smoothes skin
  • Helps with restless legs
  • Treats magnesium-deficiency
  • Highly absorbable

Description

MagTherapy Spray is a transdermal magnesium, which means it penetrates the skin, delivering magnesium directly to cells.

The spray bottle makes it easy to use anytime, anywhere, and because it’s pre-diluted with distilled water, even those with sensitive skin can enjoy the benefits of transdermal magnesium. That's why MagTherapy spray is the right choice for adults and kids alike.

Use MagTherapy whenever you need measurable relief from muscle tension, aches and pains. It’s a great way to prevent magnesium deficiency - and it softens skin.

For full-strength transdermal magnesium, see our MagTherapy Liquid in the cap top bottle.

Magnesium absorbed through the skin is fast and effective.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Suggested Use: Spray directly onto skin anywhere on the face or body, avoiding the eyes. Product should be fully dried before bathing or washing the skin.

For restless legs, spray on legs before sleep.

To make a hot compress, spray onto tight, tired muscles. Take a small towel and wet it in hot water (as hot as is comfortable). Place over sore area and allow the heat of the compress to drive the magnesium into the skin. When the compress cools, repeat.

Read our Ultimate Guide to Transdermal Magnesium for more information.

For children, follow these general guidelines:

  • Ages 1 – 3: up to 12 sprays daily
  • Ages 4 – 8: up to 20 sprays daily
  • Ages 9+: up to 40 sprays daily

Ingredients: Magnesium chloride. Each 1ml of spray contains 225mg of magnesium chloride, equivalent to 60mg of elemental magnesium.

Non-medicinal ingredients: Distilled water. Contains no fragrance

Cautions and Warnings: For external use only. Keep away from the eyes. This product is pre-diluted, and should not cause skin sensitivity; however, should you experience redness, rash or irritation, further dilute the product by adding water.

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

Can you really absorb magnesium through the skin? Consider the evidence from clinical studies:

  • A transdermal magnesium oil with a 31% magnesium concentration applied to the skin and via a foot bath was found to increase cellular magnesium concentration by 59.7% in 89% of study participants, measured through hair analysis1
  • In a two-week pilot study, blood serum and urinary magnesium concentration significantly increased in a subgroup of non-athletes following the low-dose application of 56 mg of transdermal magnesium cream per day2
  • Intracellular magnesium concentration significantly increased following the application of a transdermal magnesium chlorate spray to the skin for 4 months, measured by epithelial cell and blood serum analysis3

FAQs

  • CAN MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE LIQUID BE TAKEN ORALLY?
    The magnesium chloride used in our MagTherapy line of products tests clean for heavy metals, contaminants and toxins. However, it is licensed and recommended only for external use.
  • IS THIS MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE HEXAHYDRATE?
    Magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MCH) is chemically/laboratory produced. Our MagTherapy transdermal magnesium products are 'wildcrafted'. That means, they're taken directly from salt evaporation ponds. Hexaydrate means "without water" and when MCH transdermal brands make magnesium spray, cream or "oil", they rehydrate these lab-produced magnesium flakes. MCH only includes magnesium chloride without the 90 naturally-occurring trace minerals found in our wildcrafted magnesium chloride from seawater. We believe that many of these trace minerals are also transdermal and beneficial to our health.
  • HOW PURE AND NATURAL IS YOUR MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE?
    Whenever a new batch of Magnesium Chloride is released, it is lab tested to validate that there are no contaminants. It is tested for petrochemicals, pathogens, agricultural runoff and heavy metals that might be harmful. It always tests clean.
  • WHERE DOES MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE COME FROM?
    Our Magnesium Chloride (available in liquid, spray and gel) is derived from salt evaporation ponds along the coast of Southern California. Depending on prevailing temperatures and inches of rain, the ocean water captured in the ponds will sit for 3 to 6 months until sufficient water has evaporated to cause the salt to drop out of suspension. The water that remains on top of the salt is naturally high in magnesium chloride as well as approximately 80 other trace minerals.  
  • CAN I APPLY CREAM OR MAKEUP ON TOP OF MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE?
    Some people use our MagTherapy liquid as a toner, to tighten and smooth skin before applying other products in the morning or at night. Others use MagTherapy Balm as a facial moisturizer. Allow the magnesium 20-minutes or so to absorb into the skin before applying any other product.
  • DO I NEED TO RINSE MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE OFF MY SKIN?
    Your skin should absorb the magnesium transdermally in approximately 20 minutes. If you're using the MagTherapy liquid, spray or gel, you may wish to rinse it off. The MagTherapy Balm is very emollient, like a rich cream, and is meant to be left on until your next shower or bath.
  • CAN CHILDREN USE TOPICAL MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE?
    Transdermal magnesium supplementation is ideal for children. It's a wonderful solution for babies, toddlers and children of all ages who need magnesium , but often don’t get enough in their diets. Most children have sensitive skin, so you’ll want to start with a very dilute solution. Our Magnesium Spray is ideal for kids because it's prediluted and sprays on in a thin layer. You can also try our half-strength Magnesium Gel, but because it goes on in a thicker layer, use sparingly. Magnesium Chloride Liquid is full strength. For children you can add a capful to a bath or mix the liquid with a natural oil and rub it into the skin.
  • WHY DOES MY SKIN FEEL TINGLY WHEN I APPLY MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE?
    The MagTherapy line of products contain magnesium chloride sourced from ocean water and can feel similar to seawater on the skin. If you have sensitive, irritated, or broken skin, you may notice slight tingling, depending on which product you use. Our full-strength product is MagTherapy Liquid. You may wish to dilute it 1:1 with water or a skin-friendly oil. MagTherapy Spray, Balm and Gel are diluted to 50% strength and are suitable for most skin types. MagTherapy Balm is especially ideal for sensitive skin because it is a rich, oil-based cream. If you experience irritation using our transdermal magnesium chloride products, discontinue use.
  • IS THERE ANY RISK IN APPLYING ‘TOO MUCH’ MAGNESIUM TO THE SKIN?
    Your skin effectively regulates the amount of magnesium absorbed. There is no risk of taking in too much magnesium transdermally. The only consideration is personal comfort.
  • ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS TO USING TOPICAL MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE?
    Think of our transdermal magnesium as you would seawater. If your skin is broken or irritated, you may experience discomfort. Use caution on damaged or inflamed the skin. Although magnesium chloride liquid is healing (much like seawater) it is advisable to start with a conservative application, and if necessary, further dilute the product to comfort.
  • SHOULD I USE NATURAL CALM MAGNESIUM CITRATE POWDER WHILE ALSO USING MAGNESIUM TOPICALLY?
    Using both topical and oral magnesium as part of a daily regime is a great way to treat and prevent magnesium deficiency. Some people find they get the best relief from their symptoms when they double-up on magnesium. There is further no reason to avoid using both. Your body regulates the amount of magnesium it absorbs through the skin, so there’s no risk of applying too much topically. If you are sensitive to the gentle laxative effect of Natural Calm Magnesium Citrate Powder, simply use less of the powder and more of the topical magnesium.
  • WILL I EXPERIENCE A LAXATIVE EFFECT WITH MAGNESIUM APPLIED TO THE SKIN?
    No. Magnesium absorbed transdermally (through the skin) pybasses the digestive tract, targetting cells directly. You should not experience a laxative effect.
  • IS THERE ANY OIL IN YOUR MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE LIQUID?
    Magnesium chloride has an oil-like texture; it feels silky. However, magnesium chloride itself is not an oil and is non-staining. Only our MagTherapy Balm combines magnesium chloride with oils. MagTherapy liquid, spray and gel are oil-free.
  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR MAGTHERAPY PRODUCTS?
    The MagTherapy line of products deliver magnesium chloride through the skin. MagTherapy Liquid is a concentrated form of pure magnesium chloride. Most users will wish to dilute the full-strength liquid prior to use. MagTherapy Balm combines magnesium chloride with coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax. It's rich, moisturizing and ideal for those with sensitive skin. MagTherapy Spray is a diluted version of the full-strength liquid, and it comes in a convenient spray bottle. It's also suitable for sensitive skin. MagTherapy Gel is ideal for massaging into tense, painful and spasming muscles. Like the balm and spray, it is also a diluted form of magnesium chloride.
  • WILL YOUR TOPICAL MAGNESIUM MAKE ME FEEL SLEEPY?
    Many people report a feeling of relaxation when they use our topical magnesium products. However, there is no reason to believe you will feel sleepy. Magnesium is essential for both energy production and proper sleep.
  • WHEN SHOULD I USE YOUR TOPICAL MAGNESIUM? IS IT BETTER TO APPLY IN THE MORNING OR AT NIGHT?
    Topical magnesium can be applied at any time of day. Use it when you have muscle tension, aches or pains. When applied in the evening, our topical magnesium can help to prevent restless legs and other muscle-related sleep disturbances.

  1. John Halbert

    “I used Magnesium Liquid on my legs, hips and lower back when training for my first marathon at the age of 48. The difference it made was significant. It helped my sore, tight muscles to relax after my training runs so that I could go out again the next day. I have no doubt I would not have been able to complete the marathon if it was not for using the oil to help me recover each day. Great product!”

  2. Rachel Taylor

    “I’m absolutely amazed at how well the Magnesium Chloride Liquid works when I have any issues with my muscles. Having back and neck issues, getting a massage with the spray instead of any other oil really reduces the pain factor the next day. Once again, THANK YOU!”

    Is it possible to get joint pains from using too much of magnesium chloride oil spray?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Jules,

      Joint pain can be relieved my magnesium, but not caused by magnesium. I hope you find relief and the cause of your joint pain.

      Thank you for your inquiry!

    Is it OK to spray on the gums?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Christine,

      This transdermal magnesium chloride is only approved for external use – as is the case with other brands you’ll find. However, some people do brush their teeth with the mag spray or mag liquid, but they then spit it out. I have also used it on canker sores with good results. In both cases, the amount used “internally” is very tiny. I would advise you to use it primarily on the skin, but in small amounts on the inside of the mouth, provided you aren’t actively swallowing.

      Thank you,

      Anna

    Havent used this.. would this be good for tourette tics?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Shelly,

      While we can’t give medical advice, it does seem there may be a relationship between magnesium and Tourette Syndrome.

      “In clinical terms, magnesium deficiency is related to neuromuscular hyperexcitability, and may give rise to convulsions, chorea and athetoid movements. It has also been related to biochemical and genetic alterations that may provoke the symptoms evidenced by children with TS” (From
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2660319/)

      The above study looks at the therapeutic use of magnesium and B6 for TS, and it’s interesting because in the spring we are launching a new product that has both magnesium and B6, together with other nutrients important for mental calm. The new product will be called Calm Balance, so look out for it!

      Thank you,

      Anna

    Sara

    Is it ok to use it on your scalp? I am suffering from occipital neuralgia and the nerve pain on my head is insupportable. Not sure if safe to use on my head to calm down the nerve pain. Thanks

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Sara,

      It is absolutely fine to use the liquid MagTherapy (or the spray) on your scalp. I would not suggest using the gel or balm on those areas unless you are immediately washing your hair:) The only areas to avoid are the eyes, nostrils and other delicate areas. Use on broken skin may sting but is also a disinfectant.

      Thank you,

      Anna
