You need about two handfuls in a bath to get a good relaxing effect.
Alternatively, fill a bottle with the crystals and add warm water to dissolve them, giving a concentrated solution.
Rub the concentrated solution on your joints to get the same effect.

Commonly magnesium chloride comes from evaporated seawater and especially from the Dead Sea - Zechstein is said to come from the ancient sea bed and therefore to be the best quality available.

Using it for the bath is quite expensive while magnesium oil (which can easily be made at home) is much better value and easier than boiling an egg. Just warm equal amounts of magnesium chloride flakes and water!

How to Make Magnesium Oil

To make magnesium oil, it is critical to use filtered or (preferably) distilled water. Make sure your water filter filters out chlorine, fluoride and other toxic chemicals. You don't want to absorb that stuff into your skin!

Ingredients
Zechstein magnesium chloride flakes (1 cup)
Water, filtered or distilled (1 cup)

Equipment
Enameled cast iron, stainless steel or glass saucepan (do not use aluminum)

Directions
1. Bring the filtered water to a simmer.
2. Add the magnesium flakes and stir until dissolved.
3. Remove from heat and let cool.
4. After the mixture has cooled, transfer it to bottle - you can use a glass spray bottle or a plastic travel bottle.

When fresh, this oil tends to dry unpleasantly on the skin. If it's itchy, you can add organic MSM Sulfur Crystals which also makes it even "oilier" and gain all the benefits of sulfur supplements at the same time.

Good to massage in or can be taken orally. Found I was lacking magnesium after hair analysis.
This is one of the purest forms that go streight into the system. Unlike the oxide tablets which are poorly absorbed.

I'm not going to comment on whether this product 'works' or not as that is largely the opinion of the user. However, one thing I will say which wasn't made clear here, is that this product only contains enough flakes for four baths. It recommends you use 250g per bath. Whether or not this is value for money is your own choice. However, if you bathe regularly it would seem you need to have these on constant order or buy 10 packets for it to last you any decent amount of time. This factor seems to have been completely ignored by whoever does the packaging for this product.

Man, this has to be one of the most relaxed experiences I have ever had. Muscles and nerves completely loosen. The nervous energy gathered in the day melts away. Not only this, it's cured my dry skin. I slept like a log and woke up energised. Please note this is nothing like radox salts that you buy in your supper market. Since taking my bath, I been looking more and more into the health benifits of Magnesium and it's amazing what this stuff does. No wonder I had a glide in my stride in the morning. You can also combine this with sodium bicarbonate and create a detox bath. It's the best £9.95 I've ever spent. Go on, treat yourself!

If you are on blood pressure medication, you should check with your doctor to see that you can used this as I've read it can cause problems.

I use this to make magnesium oil, as it is so very much cheaper than buying it ready made. This magnesium has reduced my anxiety by 99% and has helped my insomnia by about 90%. I have seen people about my long standing anxiety and haven't been helped one iota, and then reading online about magnesium and paying a very modest amount to make the oil, and then having the anxiety and insomnia just melt away proves to me that my anxiety was due to magnesium deficiency and not exclusively something that happened to me as a child. Yes I know I do have problems with parts of my personality which are due to my upbringing, but to find something as simple as magnesium deficiency to blame for so much of my problems is just mind blowing. Read as much as you can about this wonderful product.

These can be cheaply made into magnesium oil. Our bodies are so depleted, and this is what is causing hardening of the arteries and muscular stress and tension. Calcium should never be given without it, as it unbalances the biochemistry and leads to all sorts of degenerative dis-ease. Magnesium is great for constipation (caused by too much calcium), good for alzheimers disease symptoms, and also for pain relief associated with muscle spasms. This is highly bio available. I am very happy with this product and the cost.

I'm using it to make a magnesium oil and I save a lot this way. I would recommend this product to other.
