every day for the first 7 days, (starting at lighter concentrations and
building up) then continue with a maintenance program of 2-3 times a
week for 6-8 weeks or longer. Sensitive care must be taken especially

Magnesium Chloride solution on the body is a very
effective and economical way of transdermal application of this mineral. It
delivers magnesium for internal body processes and is an excellent
remedy for various skin conditions, as well as to prevent magnesium
deficiency and a variety of conditions associated with it.
For people with muscle injuries concentrated magnesium baths or several
applications of the solution a day should be used. Dilution rate - 1-2 tbsp per 200ml of water.

to achieve the same effect.
Magnesium Chloride is especially effective when used as a
massage medium. It has an oily consistency which makes it very suitable for
massage. Massage speeds up circulation, opens up pores and raises
the skin temperature by attracting blood to the area. This improves the
absorption by the body of Magnesium and other minerals contained
in the product.
Mask/ body wrap/ compress / poultice
Add 5% magnesium chloride solution to clay and mud packs, body wraps,
compresses and poultices. Such applications ensure a more prolonged action and
therefore stronger effect on the body due to the fact that they stay on
the body much longer than any other applications and in a more
concentrated form. Also, muds and clays have a thermal effect on the
body raising the skin temperature under the application. This is
especially useful in the treatment of arthritis, muscle
aches and pains, musculo-skeletal disorders, as well as any other
conditions associated with magnesium deficiency.
Why is it effective?
The effectiveness of transdermal
applications of Magnesium Chloride is explained by the skin's
ability to absorb substances which are then transported by the
circulatory system around the body.
Transdermal applications are widely used in the orthodox medicine in
the form of patches for a variety of medications where continuous
intake of medical substances is required (e.g. HRT, cigarette
patches,etc.).Transdermal effect is also used in holisitc
therapies (e.g. Aromatherapy).
