Amazing Oils Bath Flakes - Magnesium Chloride
These Magnesium Bath Flakes from Amazing Oils are sourced from WA, the only organically certified source of magnesium in the world. These are pure Magnesium Chloride flakes, providing 9x the magnesium levels of traditional Epsom Salts. Taking a warm bath in magnesium flakes is an efficient way to help the body to absorb magnesium (oral supplementation from Magnesium may be destroyed in the gut).
Typically 75%* of us are magnesium deficient with symptoms ranging from lack of energy to aches, pains, muscles cramps, headaches and insomnia. According to the official Amazing Oils website, "even depression and anxiety can respond very quickly to a raising of the body’s Magnesium levels, often within a few seconds of application".
Magnesium is also known to assist in the relief of general skin conditions and is suitable for use in children to help calm them down and boost their immune systems. If you don't have a bathtub, you can add a tablespoon into a foot bath to reap the benefits or use the handy roll on magnesium gel or spray on magnesium oil.
Amazing Oils Magnesium products are also suitable for use on children*, and the manufacturer website claims "It can help to calm children down as well as boosting their immune systems. We also hear reports that it can quickly stop growing pains."
Regarding pregnancy*, Amazing Oils recommend only using the spray and bath flakes in the first and second trimester. They do not suggest using them during the last trimester simply because it is a relaxant, though many pregnant women have used both safety throughout. Most pregnant women are magnesium deficient. A sign of magnesium deficiency in pregnant women is obviously cramps, and also a very hiccupy baby! If using the bath flakes, they recommend 1/4 to 1/2 a cup in a bath 1 to 2 times a week. Please seek guidance from your personal health professional if in any doubt. Amazing Oils also report it is also perfectly safe to use during breastfeeding.
