  • Directions

    How to use

    For optimal results, use as a part of your bedtime routine for a minimum of 4 weeks.

    Gently massage 4 pumps (5ml) of the lotion onto clean, dry skin up to 30 minutes before sleep.

    After a shower or bath is a great time to apply as the skin is warm and the pores are open which aids absorption.

    Suitable for use all over the body. Focus on areas such as the neck, shoulders and legs.

    Reapply whenever needed.


    5ml (4 pumps) of Magnesium Sleep Lotion delivers a minimum of 150mg (43% NRV) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.


    Once opened, store at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

    Keep out of children’s reach.


    For external use only; Avoid contact with eyes; Do not use on damaged or broken skin.

    Supplements should not replace a healthy diet and exercise.

    The Magnesium Tingle

    On initial application you may experience a slight tingling sensation. This may indicate low magnesium levels and is the result of the high speed absorption of magnesium through the pores. This will pass with regular use and as absorption commences immediately, skin can be towelled off after massaging in.

  • FAQs
      Can I use transdermal magnesium during pregnancy?

      Transdermal magnesium is perfectly safe to use during pregnancy with no restrictions on dosage levels during this time.

      However, it is important that during pregnancy you avoid essential oils. Magnesium Joint Body Spray, Magnesium Muscle Body Spray and Magnesium Sleep Body Spray all contain essential oils.

      All our other Magnesium products are suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding, with a full list of suitable products being found here.

      What is the source of the magnesium chloride?

      The magnesium chloride we use is a solution mined in Veendam in the Netherlands. It is mined from an ancient seabed that has been condensed and purified for over 250 million years. To mine the magnesium chloride, spring water is carefully pumped down to dissolve the seam and the solution is brought up to the surface. This solution is the foundation of our Magnesium Body Sprays, Lotions, Gel and Flakes.

      Can I overdose on transdermal magnesium?

      You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are only set when using the product orally, as large doses can have a laxative effect due to it being a natural relaxant.

      Toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common as the body eliminates excess amounts, unless there are serious problems with kidney function.
