Simply apply MagTherapy Magnesium Chloride Balm to any area that’s tense, stiff, inflamed or in pain. The magnesium chloride and moisturizing ingredients also soothe, protect and hydrate skin – with remarkable staying power! Consider keeping a jar in your car or gym bag. Athletes can use it after a workout. Anyone with leg cramps or restless legs can rub MagTherapy Balm into the legs and feet at night. Just allow it to absorb before hopping in bed or put on socks and pant-length pajamas to protect your sheets from the oils! And for kids, MagTherapy Balm is a great solution for working out those growing pains and easing overused muscles. Try it and let us know what you think!
