Is Magnesium Oil Really all its Cracked up to Be?

So ever since I started trying to cut out processed foods, I decided to start looking into making my own personal stuff. The first couple things I wanted to make was toothpaste and lotion. I hade made some salves but the coconut oil just left my hands to greasy and I did not like it. So while I was looking up non greasy lotions I came across a recipe for magnesium lotion.
I started reading about being magnesium deficient can cause nausea, headaches, non restful sleep, difficulty sleeping and so much more. That explained so much so I figured whats the harm in trying out the lotion. The first thing you need to do is buy magnesium flakes. You use the flakes and distilled water to make Magnesium Oil. You can always buy it if you want to but its more expensive.


This recipe gives you enough oil for at least 2 lotion recipes

So after you are done making the oil you can make the lotion. It takes maybe 20 minutes its so easy. The recipe for the Magnesium Lotion just takes Shea butter, avocado oil, beeswax and the oil. The recipe says to use a double strength mixture of magnesium oil but I didn't because I wasn't sure how I was going to like the lotion.
My lotion after it finished setting up. The recipe is unscented but I added 10 drops of chamomile oil to mine since I plan on using it before bed.

Well after using this for a few weeks I have to say I love it. I fall asleep faster and even if i do not get enough sleep, I usually feel fairly rested. Also magnesium helps rid your body of toxins and stregthen your immune system. Wasnt sure i believed this until everyone one in my house got a horrible stomach bug and I just felt a little blah but never got sick. For me thats enough to keep using it. There are so many benifits to using this lotion every night. It feels greasy at first but your going to bed anyway. I put it on every night onto my feet, legs, hands and arms. Its great to use during pregnancy to. Check out Modern Alternative Mama this blog has so many awesome recipes and tips.
