You may never have heard of it, but magnesium oil is beneficial to so many different aspects of your life. Whether it’s for hair or skin, magnesium oil offers a plethora of benefits. And, you can use it as an easy-to-apply spray!

In this N-Essentials article, we will explore the benefits of magnesium oil and how you can turn it into your very own spray. Keep reading to learn more!

But First, What Exactly Is Magnesium Oil Spray?

Although referred to as an oil, magnesium oil is actually a highly saturated mineral solution of magnesium chloride. This solution, typically derived from seawater or ancient seabeds, possesses an oily and slippery texture, leading to its designation as an 'oil', even though it lacks the lipid content found in traditional oils. Magnesium oil is known for its ease of absorption through the skin.

This property makes it a popular choice for those interested in exploring different methods of incorporating minerals into their personal care routines. The use of magnesium in various forms has been a topic of interest in wellness circles, and its topical application in the form of magnesium oil is a unique approach. Magnesium oil is often chosen for its direct application to the skin, and its use spans a wide range of personal care practices. It is also noted as a component in various skin care formulations.

Who Should Use Magnesium Oil Spray?

Truthfully, just about anyone can use magnesium oil spray! It’s beneficial for a wide variety of uses and is particularly appealing to those who prefer topical applications, either for convenience or personal preference.

If you have a busy lifestyle, spritzing magnesium oil on is quick and efficient. Simply spray it minimally on the desired areas after a shower before continuing on with your day.

Magnesium oil spray is also great for those who have an active lifestyle. Those engaged in regular physical activity may incorporate magnesium oil spray into their post-workout routine for its ease of use and direct application to the skin.

How Can I Incorporate Magnesium Oil Spray Into My Daily Routine?

Gentle and natural, magnesium oil is an amazing ingredient to add to your beauty routine. N-essentials has ready-made magnesium oil that can be used directly onto the skin and can be purchased in our online store. However, you can use common home ingredients to make your own DIY magnesium oil spray.


  • Magnesium Chloride flakes -½ cup
  • Water- ½ cup (Preferably distilled)
  • Measuring cup or glass bowl

  3. Stir continuously until the flakes dissolve completely.
  4. After it cools, transfer the content to the spray bottle.
