Soothing muscles & pregnancy with magnesium: Tip of the Day 9-21-22
I recently signed up for a new workout class. We'll talk about this later. Immediately after class the instructor looked at me, smiled big, and said, "Great job. You're gonna be sore tomorrow." She did not come close to lying.

Magnesium can be taken in supplement form, but applying magnesium oil topically offers faster relief and better absorption. Technically, magnesium oil isn't an oil, it just feels like one. Magnesium oil is made from a mixture of magnesium chloride flakes and water. Magnesium chloride is an easy-to-absorb form of magnesium that may be able to raise levels of magnesium in the body when applied to the skin. Researchers say magnesium deficiency is an underlying cause for many serious ailments including chronic pain, Alzheimer's, migraines, heart disease, asthma, and more. Using it after a workout is one way athletes recover from delayed muscle onset soreness (DOMS).
Magnesium oil has been referred to as the pregnant woman's BFF. This is because of its ability to decrease nausea, cramps & muscle spasms, while increasing a better night's sleep.

Do not shave or exfoliate before applying magnesium oil unless you like a good sting!
Talk to your doctor if you have a serious ailment and you want to use magnesium oil to help.
Bonus tip: Magnesium oil can be made from scratch by mixing magnesium chloride flakes and boiled, distilled water. Here's a recipe if you'd like to make your own:
