Making Magnesium Oil (Helps with Sleep, Skin, Hair, Heart, Bone, Stress … issues)

A cheap solution to make magnesium oil at home and solve many health issues!

A few days ago I was preparing magnesium oil in my home and I thought I would share this with all interested. I started using Magnesium oil to solve my skin issues in 2018. Here is the link to that blog:
Hope for Psoriasis (and possibly other skin issues e.g. Vitiligo/Leucoderma, Eczema etc)?

Due to this, I came to know about the vitality of magnesium in our body. Of course, a large number of vitamins and minerals are important for our body functions and we expect to get these through food and nature (e.g. sun). However, due to many reasons including our lifestyle changes, food habits, etc., we are deficient in these and they show up through various health issues that we face. Worsening topsoil health has also reduced the availability of nutrients in our food. I would share a video of Dr. Sanjay Gupta talking about the role of magnesium:

Why Magnesium is so good for you. Dr Sanjay Gupta explains the benefits of magnesium.

While working on my skin issues, I learned that transdermal absorption of magnesium is more effective than oral intake. For this one can use magnesium oil and apply it to the body and leave it for about 20 minutes before washing it off. One can also use the foot soak method in lukewarm water with Epsom salt mixed. Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate.
However, to prepare magnesium oil, we use magnesium chloride, which gets absorbed better by our body. We can buy magnesium oil from the market but it costs much more than making it through a simple process at home.

I procured “Magnesium Chloride Flakes” from the market (mostly from online markets like Amazon). A few days ago, I procured 1 Kg of Acorn Bath Salt for Rs 349 only.

To make magnesium oil from here, we need to mix an equal volume of these flakes and hot water. Stir it till it is fully dissolved. It becomes a bit sticky and can now be stored in a plastic container.
