Magnesium Chloride Liquid (Oil)

Magnesium Chloride Liquid is absorbed through the skin, delivering magnesium directly to cells. It’s a highly absorbable form of topical magnesium.

Also known as “magnesium oil” for its silky texture, magnesium chloride provides relief from muscle tension, spasms, cramps, aches and pains – and it softens skin!

Use following a workout, to release tension after a long day or anytime you experience symptoms of magnesium deficiency

Note that Magnesium Chloride Liquid is our full-strength product. For pre-diluted topical magnesium, see our Magnesium Chloride Spray or Magnesium Chloride Gel.

magnesium absorbed through the skin is fast and effective

Directions for Use:

Pour 30 ml (2 tbsp) of magnesium liquid into a tub or foot bath.

Dilute with water or a skin-friendly oil when applying directly to the skin, to test for sensitivity. Rub diluted product into muscles.

Hot Compress:  Apply Magnesium Chloride Liquid to an area of pain or tension. Take a small towel and wet it in hot water (as hot as comfortable). Place over sore area and allow the heat of the compress to drive the magnesium into the skin. When the compress cools, repeat.

Ingredients:  Each 1ml of seawater contains 450mg of magnesium chloride. Potency equivalent: 120mg

Contains no fragrance, preservatives or added ingredients.

Cautions and Warnings:   For external use only.  Keep away from the eyes.  Full-strength on the skin may cause redness, rash and irritation.  Dilute to half-strength with pure water or a skin-friendly oil.

Can you really absorb magnesium through the skin?

Consider the evidence from clinical studies:

  • A transdermal magnesium oil with a 31% magnesium concentration applied to the skin and via a foot bath was found to increase cellular magnesium concentration by 59.7% in 89% of study participants, measured through hair analysis1
  • In a two-week pilot study, blood serum and urinary magnesium concentration significantly increased in a subgroup of non-athletes following the low-dose application of 56 mg of transdermal magnesium cream per day2
  • Intracellular magnesium concentration significantly increased following the application of a transdermal magnesium chlorate spray to the skin for 4 months, measured by epithelial cell and blood serum analysis3

“Last summer I woke up about 5 days in a row with charlie-horses. I went to my physiotherapist who alleviated the problem with massage and he recommended a magnesium supplement. I had tried magnesium supplements before my bowels can’t tolerate magnesium orally. The assistant at the health food store recommended a topical supplement and I found Bolton’s Magnesium Chloride Balm. I rubbed it on my lower legs 3 times the first day, 2 times a day the next couple of days, and once a day for about a week. I was without cramps for several weeks.

The cramps did come back a couple of months later so I started the course of magnesium balm again and I now find that if I use it 2 or 3 times a week I have no recurrence. When I feel any tightness in my lower legs I rub the magnesium balm into them and I’m cramp-free.

I was talking about charlie-horses to a couple of ladies in my fitness class a few months back and mentioned I had found an easy and natural way to deal with them. One lady said she suffers terribly, and nightly, with leg cramps but she cannot take oral magnesium supplements. I explained to her that because topical magnesium supplements go nowhere the gut, they do not cause diarrhea. I gave her a small amount from my jar and she tried it. It not only did not affect her bowels, but it also cured the charlie-horses and her nightly suffering.

Next jar I’m going to try the Lavender Magnesium Chloride Balm as I am a lover of lavender.”

Absolutely love this product! I hand out as free samples to all my patients! I have used it on my charlie horses, lactic acid build up in my legs as well as sprains and strains! the results are amazing!

It makes my muscles feel much better within minutes. I use it for chronic muscle pain, and I love that it’s natural and something your body needs anyway.
