Magnesium sprays: what they are and how to use them

In this guide

What are magnesium sprays?

MagnesiumOil is a concentration of magnesium chloride, sourced from 1600 meters below the seabed, providing a pure and natural solution that is free from man-made pollutants.

Magnesium sprays are a quick and effective way to replenish your magnesium levels. Designed to be taken on the move, they come in a number of varieties and can be used for relaxation, muscle relief as well as many other applications.

How do they work?

MagnesiumOil sprays are designed to be sprayed directly on the skin where the magnesium immediately begins to absorb. This is known as transdermal absorption.

This is incredibly effective as the magnesium goes straight through to your blood vessels and muscles, bypassing reliance on digestive absorption.

For more information on transdermal magnesium, have a look at our transdermal magnesium information page.

FAQs

How much magnesium spray is too much?

There isn’t an upper limit for transdermal magnesium products. The only risks come when you take magnesium in the form of tablets, as large doses can have a laxative effect. Toxic symptoms from excess magnesium are rare because the body naturally gets rid of any magnesium it doesn’t need.

Where on my body should I spray magnesium?

You can use magnesium spray all over the body. If you are using Joint or Recovery sprays, apply them to the areas that feel sore. Avoid spraying on broken skin, near the eyes or around any sensitive areas.

Why does magnesium spray itch/string?

A slight itching/tingling feeling is most likely an indicator that your body has low levels of magnesium. This sensation will pass the more you use the spray, as your body increases its magnesium intake.

You can initially soothe the sensation by towelling your skin after massaging in the magnesium.
