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 clean water (spring water or distilled water). Water filters can remove chlorine, fluoride and other toxic chemicals but there is new evidence showing tap/faucet water is so filled with dangerous byproducts of drug residues, parasites and other micro-organisms that several studies are showing a higher incidence of birth defects in the offspring of mothers who drank the most tap water while pregnant (so what's it doing to you?!). Water filters do not remove these contaminants. You don't want to absorb that stuff into your skin!

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

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

Directions
1. Bring the clean 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, best to use HDPE plastic.

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.

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.

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

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.

to life, everything - seems too simple and cheap, but it really works. As a former therapist I have seen and tried a lot of products, some costing a fortune. Even though I've only had time for footbaths a couple of times a week, and used the oil after my shower, my energy levels have improved, skin is softer, nails are smoother, circulation is better. This is one product I will continue to use.

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.

I have Osteoporosis, but I am unable to take sufficient Magnesium by mouth. Magnesium is well absorbed through the skin. so I make up a solution of I part Magnesium flakes and 1 part water and rub it into my skin, two or three times daily. It is much, much cheaper that buying the Better You liquid preparation, and I am sleeping much better since using it regularly.
