Magnesium Carrier Oil & Deodorant


I've long been a fan of blending pure essential oils with organic carriers and remedy bases like organic manuka honey, organic hand processed coconut oil, alcohol-free witch hazel, and Naked Salve.  Recently, I've added a new one to my list of favorites, magnesium oil!  After researching magnesium deficiency and the symptoms a deficiency can trigger, it was a no-brainer to incorporate magnesium any way I could using them right along with my EOs.

I recently shared how to make your own magnesium oil, it's incredibly simple and only two ingredients are needed.  Be sure to jump over and to learn how to make your own and, how important it is that our bodies operate with an adequate amount magnesium. "Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong.

Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.” Some of the best news of all? Magnesium is safe for the whole family! Even infants benefit. The tiny ones need approximately 30mg daily from birth to 7 months.  

While it's ultimately best to get magnesium from our food and water modern farming and fluoridated water is making it harder and harder to get magnesium naturally.  Using simple supplements like magnesium oil in a roller bottle blend or spray bottle protocol is smart way to add just a little more magnesium from the tiniest to the tallest in your family! Speaking of the tiniest, just as we dilute our essential oil for babies, dilution is important with magnesium oil as well. To make magnesium oil for the whole family, follow instructions {HERE}.

DILUTION -  Infants and young children under six:  Dilute magnesium oil by 50% simply by adding more distilled water. Magnesium has no known ill side effects however, it can cause a tingling, borderline stinging sensation the first few times you use it especially just out of the shower or bath when pores are wide open. You can dilute it further with distilled water or, wait 5 minutes to let the magnesium in then diffuse the sensation by applying coconut oil or a natural moisturizer.  Too much magnesium can cause loose stools, cut back on usage if this occurs. FYI:  If you've used magnesium oil or gel you know that after it dries your skin will feel like you just walked out of ocean and dried off in the sun, it's something to get used to. Applying to the bottoms of feet, is the optimal application for magnesium carrier/remedy base, you won't notice that salty residue at all!

Magnesium Oil Roller Bottle Protocols:

Aches and Pain Remedies are excellent candidates for magnesium oil carrier, sufficient magnesium benefits joints, muscles and can ease arthritis symptoms. Sleep Remedies are fabulous choices!  Magnesium is known as the "silver bullet" for sleep.  Lots of studies show that adequate amounts of magnesium in the body can help insomnia, sleep disorders and disrupted sleep! Jeddy's Blend for ADHD and anxiety is a perfect match for magnesium oil.  Studies show that proper magnesium levels in the body can help alleviate ADHD and stress symptoms. Here's the source for my favorite 5ml  roller bottles with metal balls roller balls {as shown above} and, magnesium chloride bath flakes for more effective and long lasting magnesium supplementation.  Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate which is another good alternative.  However, if you do a little research you'll find like I did that magnesium chloride is an all around better choice and the BEST choice for magnesium oil.

Magnesium Deodorant Protocol:

Once you make and start using magnesium oil you'll be amazed at the many applications you'll discover for its use! This is my latest. Yet another DIY healthy deodorant alternative brought to you by pure essential oils and magnesium oil. Simply fill a small spray bottle with magnesium oil, add 10 drops per 2 ounce bottle of any pure essential oils of choice and be sure to shake before use.  I can't wait to hear what you think about the results!

That's all for now!  Do yourself a favor and do all you can to increase your magnesium levels. Your calcium absorption will improve, vitamin D intake will be more effective and you just might sleep better, be more regular, handle stress like a boss and help your heart out.
