If you've seen magnesium oil used in different recipes and wondered why it's great for you then today's blog post is perfect for learning more about it! Although it might seem like just a typical oil, there are many ways you can use it to maximise its awesome effects. In today's blog post, we'll go over 3 ways you can use for great results.
The Origin of Magnesium
Magnesium oil, although called an oil, is actually the chemical magnesium chloride mixed with water to form a liquid concentrated version of magnesium.
Magnesium is a mineral that is found in the earth's crust and has been used by people for centuries. It is used in many different ways, including as a dietary supplement and a topical treatment. Dietary magnesium is known to help improve your health in many ways, while others claim that it has benefits such as reducing stress and anxiety levels, improving sleep quality, and relieving pain.
At N-essentials, we provide magnesium oil that's only to be used for topical treatments such as DIY skincare and there are three great ways you can use it in your next project to see great results:
Use magnesium oil in your DIY moisturiser
One of the best ways to use magnesium oil is to add it to your favourite DIY moisturiser recipe. This is a great way to get all the benefits of magnesium as it's great for improving skin tone and encouraging smoother and clearer skin. It's great for dry or patchy skin that needs that extra bit of nourishment in your skincare routine and for reducing extra oil if your skin type is on the oilier side.
To use magnesium oil in your moisturiser, simply add a few drops to your recipe and mix well. You can then apply it to your skin as you would any other moisturiser, massaging it in until it's fully absorbed. We love using this, particularly if you're looking to wear makeup as it creates a lovely smooth and dewy complexion to create that glass skin effect.
Add magnesium oil to your bathwater
Another great way to use magnesium oil is to add it to your bathwater. Everyone knows how relaxing a warm bath can be! Enhance the entire experience with the addition of magnesium oil.
To use magnesium oil in your bath, simply add a few drops to your bath water and mix well. You can then soak in the tub for 20-30 minutes, allowing the magnesium to cover your skin and nourish your skin as you relax.
Make a magnesium oil hair treatment
If you're looking for a way to improve the condition of your hair, then magnesium oil is a great option. This mineral can help to nourish your hair, making it look and feel healthier, and shinier and also helps to tame any frizziness you might have.
To use magnesium oil in your hair, simply massage a few drops into wet hair and leave for 20-30 minutes, or even overnight for best results to allow the oil to hydrate your hair from within. You can then shampoo and condition your hair as normal.
