Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I find this very helpful for getting my magnesium uptake when I need it. Works quicker than tablets. Very satisfied with the ease of spraying it on. June 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product Easy to use, love this product. I spray it in my hand, rub it on my feet then I put little footies on. Or rub it on my arms, let it soak in for 20-30 minutes. Then rinse the area with clear water. I feel a difference, in my physical and mental health already. May 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Quality & Effectiveness Extremely greasy; does not rub in at all. Must wear protective, absorbable clothing after application. Also, doesn't seem to be nearly as potent or effective as other brands I've tried... no discernable benefit from using this brand of magnesium oil. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great natural deodorant I bought this as an alternative to all the natural deodorants that I have tried on the market. This isn't really an oil, because it is not oily. After researching online for natural deodorant I decided to try this. It works better then the other stick and roll-on natural deodorants I have tried, which either did not work or were uncomfortably sticky. After first trying it plain, I decided to add add a bit of essential oil just for fun. Actually I put about half an ounce of Magnesium oil in a little spray bottle with a few drops of lavender oil. I did not want to commit to a whole bottle of it, so that I could change my essential oil scent on a whim. Works great, the best deodorant ever used. But do not use immediately after shaving, wait until the next morning, or it will sting. Highly recommend. November 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product at a fair price The Magnesium Oil is a good product. It does burn a little, but not all the time. I am thankful to have found it at Swanson's. February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this Magnesium Oil! I shopped around and located this great product on Swanson Vitamins. I can't tell you how much it has helped me. I have bought bottles of it and shared with several others. I tell everyone to shop Swanson Vitamins for Magnesium Oil! November 1, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by burns I was hopeful after reading all the reviews. there is not statement anywhere that it might burn you! the salt is gives horrible burning feeling. I forced myself to use this. not sure if there is any health benefits using this. February 21, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Be prepared for itching! I've used a wonderful magnesium gel for several years, but I needed a spray for areas that I can't reach like my back. I had to jump in the shower to get it off me, since it made me itch and burn so badly. Whatever you do, do NOT put it on your face! I diluted it with water as someone suggested, but it still made me itch and burn. No more for me! October 11, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Burns like crazy!! I couldn't wash this off my body fast enough, it burned so bad. I threw one in the garbage. Then I read somewhere to dilute it with water, so I did that. Still burns. Other Magnesium gels I've purchased are a dream! I'm going back to them. This was money wasted. I'm so disappointed. I thought the spray would be more convenient. October 9, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Warning!!! Read reviews before buying this product You always know you have found a great product when you get results. I have found many great products on SwansonVitamins, but sadly, this is NOT one of them. This product has so many issues, I don't want to write a book, but I will mention a few. First, as other people have stated, this product severely aggravates skin in many people after having showered/bathed. I didn't ever feel a burn like most people, but I was covered in what looked like a severe case of hives or eczema for three days. Please keep in mind, I've never had eczema or any skin issues in my life. I have used other topical minerals at full strength without issue. Second, I noticed that this doesn't seem to absorb well at all. I have tried using this on every part of my body and it never absorbs. It will sit on the surface for over an hour and eventually dry on the surface of your skin. Perhaps it has to do with the size of the molecular structure. I have not had this experience with ancient minerals which is advertised as a million times smaller for high absorption. Don't waste your time or money. We have performed lots of consumer testing with this product on many individuals. No one we have given this product to has liked it September 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I rub it on my legs every morning as I am getting dressed. Very effective if used regularly. June 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent a multitude of uses........... if it stings a little, it helps to dilute the mag oil in a little bit of water. let it absorb and then wash away April 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow!!! My body loves this product... I put it on my feet, stomach and in my armpits for deodorant... I am reading a book about magnesium oil and it is some pretty amazing stuff!!! August 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic This seems to be a much more helpful form of magnesium for me, I've tried other forms. I rub it on my feet before bed, and usually apply a few sprays to each arm in the morning, but I do not like applying it right after a shower. My skin is not crazy about it, it does sting a little. Still, it is well worth it. I love this stuff!!! I've bought some to send to friends and family. Another great Swanson product at a great price. February 24, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth and well packaged Very goo dquality and easily applied and absorbed... will buy again January 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson does it again! I've known magnesium is an important part of maintaining optimum health and I realized it was missing on my supplement shelf. So I thought I'd try this newfangled oil stuff. To my great pleasure it has proven to be highly effective. And, further research has shown Swanson to have (as usual) the best price around. December 31, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by Itchy Stuff ! I tried magnesium oil after a dry sauna and shower. The spray caused a rash and immediate itching. The same happened to my daughter to and her daughter (my granddaughter). I gave the oil to my sister-in-law who loves it--so it might be prudent to share a bottle with a couple of friends and split the cost before trying it yourself. I happen to purchase every quarter, so I bought 3 bottle....Lucky for my sister-in-law! June 6, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Magnesium Oil I purchased this as a natural deodorant. It seems to be working so far. It is NOT and antiperspirant. I am pleased with this product. April 20, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best price by far Great product! An excellent way to get your magnesium. And I've priced shopped in stores and online and this is the best price anywhere by far for this product! March 20, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great product from Dr. Hendel! This is great to use after a shower or a foot soak, especially on the feet in a massage treatment, or upon the exterior part of the hands in circular motion. I have found magnesium oil to impart the feeling of a European health spa or mineral hot springs. Just two applications have been wonderfully effective in smoothing and toning both hands and feet in a remarkably therapeutic manner. Highly recommended! February 25, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by great value I am pleased with the quality of this oil. the price is great. works very well. this magnesium oil is odorless. December 25, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by magnesium oil love this product. I use it as a deodorant as well as other uses December 14, 2009
Rated 3 out of 5 by sticky and drying I was disappointed in this oil. It left my skin dry and itchy. It also made my skin burn a little. November 15, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by good product but it does leave skin itchy and dry. important to rinse off after a few minutes - which is not always convenient. October 5, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and warm to the touch I personaly use Magnesium oil for my massages. It is smooth and warm on my skin September 27, 2009
