Amazing for muscle tension and pain!
on October 3, 2016
Magnesium Chloride Flakes 2.2 lb (35.27 oz) Flakes
I ordered this product, because my Dr suggested I use magnesium oil to help with my muscle tension. After pricing magnesium oil in our local heath store, I decided it would be more economical to make my own. Making it is super easy, boil water (distilled or filtered) and mix with equal parts magnesium flakes, stir until dissolved. After cooling move to glass spray bottles. I make it up 1 cup of water to 1 cup of magnesium flakes at a time. It fills 4 - 2 oz spray bottles, plus the leftover I keep in a mason jar on a dark shelf for later. I keep one bottle in my purse, 1 in the bathroom (spray it on wet from the shower works really well) and 1 in bedroom (for when I wake up with muscle pain in the night), and I have one extra in case I lose a bottle (so something I would do). I also have my kids use when they are sore from sports.
And I cannot even begin to express how much this helps. It isn't instant, and honestly it isn't even noticeable at first. But as you go on, and move, you will notice it doesn't hurt anymore. It is amazing, and I am so thankful for it. For anyone skeptical, if you have ever felt the benefits of an Epsom salt bath, this is the same thing, but more concentrated and easier to apply where needed.
And, oh my gosh!, don't put it in your mouth!!, this is grossly salty!!
I have never used a different brand of magnesium flakes, but I am so happy with this brand that I will for sure be back to buy more (but this container is so large and you don't need to use very much (I really recommend an atomizing spray bottle to use), it isn't a purchase I will have to make again for at least another year.
Plus, I heard a rumor that if you have enough magnesium, it can help reverse tooth decay and cavities. Haven't verified it for myself, but it will be interesting to see if I get this particular side effect....
