Importance of magnesium
Magnesium is responsible for 325 chemical reactions inside the body and helps support calcium absorption, maintenance of normal bones and teeth, normal psychological function, and healthy functioning of the nervous system.
Magnesium also helps improve rest and recovery by contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, electrolyte balance and supports normal energy-yielding metabolism.
How to use
Add 250g Magnesium Flakes (roughly 2 cups) per bath.
Lie back and relax for 20 minutes. Increase amount for a more intensive experience.
Add 150g Magnesium Flakes (roughly 1 cup) to approx. 5 litres of water, enough to cover feet.
Sit and relax for 20 minutes.
It is recommended to take a magnesium bath 2 to 3 times a week. Your skin will feel pleasant, smooth and supple.
1kg of Magnesium Flakes contains 120g of elemental magnesium.
Magnesium Flakes are very hygroscopic and will quickly absorb moisture if left opened. Store in a dry place and quickly reseal opened bags.
Use within 12 months of opening.
For external use only; Avoid contact with eyes; Do not use on damaged or broken skin.
Supplements should not replace a balanced diet or healthy lifestyle.
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.

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.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of our products, occasionally crystallisation can occur in the pump mechanism, preventing it from working. This can often occur if the spray hasn't been stored at room temperature or hasn't been used in a while.
This can usually be fixed by removing the pump from the bottle and soaking it in warm water for no less than 10 minutes. After soaking, press the pump down firmly a few times whilst it is immersed in the water to clear any crystallisation. The pump must be clear of all water and dry before returning to the bottle.
If this doesn't resolve the issue, then please contact our Customer Experience Team here.
Our magnesium products have been developed to be applied directly to the skin, so we do not recommend taking them orally.
There are no contraindications with any of our transdermal magnesium products.
Transdermal magnesium is perfectly safe to use during pregnancy with no restrictions on dosage levels during this time.
While some essential oils are advised to be avoid during pregnancy, those included in our products are classified as safe. However, if you have any concerns relating to your your own health, please seek the advise of your midwife or GP prior to use.
All our Magnesium products are suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding. You can find all of our pregnancy safe supplements here.
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.
