Dr. Barbara Hendel's Magnesium Oil
assuming it's working
this is a great price for equal quality compared to other brands i've researched. i've only used it a few times so i can't tell a difference in how i feel, but i'm assuming it's supplementing my magnesium requirements

can't be without it !
This oil has become a household staple for me. It is a fast,well-absorbed form of magnesium that assists in me in neuro-muscular health; the price at Swanson is excellent for this product. Thank you !

It's an easy and effective way for my body to get magnesium, but it does cause my skin to itch.

Seems To Work
I either put this on before or after a shower. It's involving, but I will sit inwards on the side of my tub and spray it all over my body. I then sit for 20 minutes, then get up and shower it off. Be careful when standing, as the oil is slippery. It relaxes me. You can spray small areas(back of knees) after you shower, but it irritates the skin. So I always like rinsing it off in a shower. It mildly burns/reacts with some areas of your skin, but it is tolerable and showering it off always remedies that. I think it has been effective in relaxing me after a tough, long day. It is wortha try!

This a great product and helps keep my husband and I active. We have shared it with many friends and they agree.

Much easier to use than taking pills or capsules.

When I received the oil, 1 of the tops had come loose and had leaked. I'm glad they took the care to put each bottle in a seperate ziplock bag. If they hadn't done that I would have had a big mess. ... the product is great by the way.

So far I have found this product easy to use and like it. Love the bargain of buying 3 at once.

A great product
This is an excellent product that seems to be of great quality. It is hard to find it in quality elsewhere, and Swanson's has priced it at an excellent price. You'd be surprised at how many great uses magnesium oil has. Look it up on the web and you will be surprised at what it can do.

I saw no change after using this product. It also stings my skin to the point of much discomfort, that tells me that it a true product though. I wish I had only bought the 1 bottle. Oh well, different strokes for different folks. Still love Swanson products though!

Magnesium In Biology
Magnesium is an essential element in biological systems. Magnesium occurs typically as the Mg2+ ion. It is an essential mineral nutrient for life and is present in every cell type in every organism. For example, ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the main source of energy in cells, must be bound to a magnesium ion in order to be biologically active. What is called ATP is often actually Mg-ATP. Similarly, magnesium plays a role in the stability of all polyphosphate compounds in the cells, including those associated with DNA and RNA synthesis. A balance of magnesium is vital to the well being of all organisms.

This helped relax me...!
I bought this to help with my tight muscles. This was helpful in relaxing my muscles. I spray it on at night before going to bed. Sometimes I have sprayed it on during the first thing in the morning if I need to.

I bought three bottles, in the beginning, but should have tried one first. I think this is a great idea, as I already take too many pills. However, I have sensitive skin, and when I use it my skin itches, for a while afterwards. I'm not sure if it is the product itself, or that my skin is sensitive.
It does feel oily, to the touch when first applied. But, it absorbs into the skin quickly, without leaving any residue.
I am not worried about having bought three bottles, though, as Swanson has such a great return policy.

Do a google search on the benefits of magnesium oil. Outstanding benefits! When I can't get the "namebrand original" I get this for far less cost. May not be as potent, but good product.

I am a massage therapist and I am always interested in products that are helpful for the muscles. Since I started using it I feel that I have less tension in my own problem areas. I also use it at night to help me relax and sleep better. I have been using it on my clients and encourage them to check out the benefits of magnesium chloride.

My faovrite product. Have had long term (3 year) discomfort for three years from accident that caused shoulder seperation. This spray gives me relief for several hours with no side effects. Had hamstring tighten up from bike riding recently and helped that also.

Love this stuff
I've read a bunch about magnesium oil and it seems like a great option for those of us who need more mag and want to make sure it's being absorbed well, which the oil purportedly is. Seems like great value for the money.
