USING THE OIL

What exactly is Magnesium Oil used for?

There are many different conditions that magnesium oil can be used for. It can be a more effective replacement for your daily oral magnesium supplement, for relaxation, muscle recovery or assisting with sleep. It is suitable for people of all ages.

How much magnesium oil should I use?

There is no real set amount as everyone is different but here are some guidelines. If you are applying to the skin, start with 1-2 pumps directly to the area. Depending on the reason for using the magnesium oil and with continued use, you may wish to increase the dose over time, but if you haven’t used the oil before — as it is quite pure — we recommend you start off with 1-2 pumps and go from there.
If adding to the bath, for adults use 30-50ml, for children, add from a few pumps through to 30mls, depending on their age. For a footbath, add 10-20mls.

Sometimes I experience a tingling sensation after I apply the oil. Is this normal?

Yes, this can be normal for some people — in fact, we think tingling is good! It means that the magnesium oil is doing its job.
A tingling sensation can occur when a person is magnesium deficient. With continued use and as your magnesium levels increase, you may no longer experience the feeling. The tingling sensation can also come from a build-up of toxins in the skin’s cells.
If the tingling sensation seems to be excessive or annoys you, you can dilute the magnesium oil with distilled or filtered water. An alternative way to use the magnesium oil, is to add it to your bath and soak in it for 20 minutes.
If you are concerned about experiencing this sensation please contact us. We are always happy to help and speak to you about the many different ways of using MgLIFE Magnesium Oil in a way that’s right for you and your body.

Do I have to wash it off after 30 minutes?

No, you don’t have to wash the oil off, this is just a recommendation for anyone who doesn’t like the feeling of oil on their skin. However, if you are going to wash the oil off, please wait 30 minutes before doing so to make sure you still get the benefits.

Is magnesium oil safe for children?

Yes it is. Kids sometimes don’t enjoy the feeling of the oil on their skin, so adding it to their bath is a great way for them to receive all the magnesium oil’s benefits without them knowing that they are! (Kind of like finding a way to ‘sneak’ healthy veggies into their meal…)

ABOUT THE OIL

You say you are South Australian owned and made, but are the ingredients themselves sourced in Australia?

Yes! We are proud to be a small family-owned business located in Lobethal SA, with all our operations happening there. All of our ingredients are sourced locally here in Australia. With more and more people wanting to know exactly where their food and health products are coming from, and/or wanting to buy local, we’re very happy to be able to say that MgLIFE Magnesium Oil is 100% natural and an all Australian product.

(Please note: Unfortunately ‘Australian Made’ can mean that a product is packaged here in Australia, but the actual ingredients may well be imported. It pays to check.)

How is MgLIFE Magnesium Oil different from other magnesium oils?

With quite a few magnesium oils on the market, it’s good to compare products — but we understand it can get quite confusing. Here are some things you might like to consider, when you’re choosing to buy a magnesium oil…

Where is it made? Where are the ingredients from?
Our product is 100% Australian made and owned with ALL the ingredients being sourced here in Australia, not overseas like many others on the market.

How is it made? What does it contain?
Our magnesium oil contains no chemicals and has no nasties. It is extracted from pure sea water and not made from flakes like many others.

Has it been scientifically tested?
Our oil has been tested against others on the market and found to be the highest in magnesium content. Which means you get more value for your money.

Is it easy to use?
We have designed the product to be very easy to use. Instead of a generic spray top, which tends to clog, we use a premium serum top dispenser — so it can easily be applied directly to the skin. And will never clog.

Is MgLIFE magnesium oil actually an ‘oil’?

No. The product gets its name magnesium oil purely from the feel of the product. The product contains no oil.

Disclaimer
MgLIFE magnesium oil is 100% natural and made with organic ingredients chosen specially for their beneficial properties. MgLIFE is designed for external use only. Research suggests that magnesium oil is safe for general use, however we recommend consultation with your General Practitioner in certain circumstances, especially for young children or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If in doubt, we recommend a patch test. Apply a small amount of MgLIFE to clean skin on the underside of your arm, halfway between the wrist and elbow and wait 24 hours. If any redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use. Although some people experience immediate relief of symptoms, it can take time to increase the magnesium levels in your body, especially if you are extremely deficient, so we recommend continued use, daily.
