I first came across Amazing Oils Magnesium several years ago at the Eumundi Markets.
The lovely stall holder sprayed a bit on my sore neck and rubbed it in. Wayhay… it felt better! So I bought a bottle and haven’t looked back. Since then, I have learnt more about magnesium and why it really is a wonder mineral. Magnesium deficiency seems to be very common today and just using some magnesium oil daily can make you feel so much better and help a wide variety of ailments.
I asked the Harold family from Amazing Oils some questions about magnesium and they are also kindly giving away some of their amazing product! Read on…..
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is the 8th most common mineral in the Earth’s crust. It is important for humans but equally as important for animals and plants.
What does Magnesium do in the body?
The simple answer is – almost everything. Of the almost 1600 systems of the human body, 1200 require Magnesium in order to function. Systems such as the cardio-vascular system (heart health) and cognitive function (brain health) are particularly vulnerable to a lack of magnesium.

How can you tell if you are deficient in Magnesium?
There are numerous symptoms of magnesium deficiency. From a general lack of energy, through to aches and pains and tight or cramping muscles, many common symptoms of stress can be traced to a lack of this intrinsic mineral. Headaches, migraines, insomnia, joint pain, and even such things as depression and anxiety can respond very quickly to a raising of the body’s magnesium levels, often within a few seconds of application.
What are the benefits of using Magnesium daily?
* Increases the release of DHEA – our youth hormone
* Encourages healthy, glowing skin
* Supports the repair of damaged skin cells
* Helps to facilitate safe and effective detoxification
* Helps relieve muscular aches and pains, cramps and spasms
* Relieves sore throats
* Improves muscle function
* A natural cellular protectant
* Increases energy levels
* Elevates moods and helps to relieve stress
* Supports a healthy immune system
* Helps to calm overactive nerves
* Supports the balance of the hormonal system
* Improves insomnia and sleep quality
* Alleviates eye twitching
* Relieves growing pains
* Supplemented with calcium, may help reverse osteoporosis
* Helps regulate high blood pressure
* May help lower the risk of coronary heart diseases
* Helps decrease the risk of diabetes
* Treats migraines and headaches
* Helps calm the symptoms of depression, panic attacks and anxiety
* Relief from PMS and menopause symptoms
Why oil and flakes? What about food and tablets?
Using Magnesium Chloride transdermally (on the skin) is 100 times more effective than using oral supplementation. Unfortunately, food sources are quite low in magnesium due to depletion in our soils. So, for best results we recommend using magnesium oil on the body or soaking in magnesium chloride flakes.
Hang on, isn’t this the same as Epsom Salts?
No, epsom salts is magnesium sulphate. Our magnesium products are magnesium chloride and are 12 times stronger than your common epsom salts. This is due to the difference in the magnesium molecule (chloride is the way the body best absorbs the mineral), as opposed to sulfate, a larger, less concentrated molecule aka epsom salts. It’s fantastic in the bath for relaxing muscles and reducing tightness in the body.
(I can attest to this – an Amazing Oils bath reduces my body to jelly! Love it. Sonia)
How do you use it?
* Spray a little on feet and lower legs for a good night’s sleep
* Spray under armpits and knees for general health
* Rub into temples for headaches and migraines
* Rub straight into sore muscles for almost instant relief
* Gargle to fix colds and sore throats
* Rub on the chest to lower blood pressure
* Apply to the face to repair damaged skin
* Soak in a bath with the flakes
Be aware that if you have sensitive skin or are very deficient, the spray may tingle or sting a little. Use the oil after bathing for a week or so until your body becomes used to it. You can also use it on your feet, which are typically less sensitive.
