Dr. Barbara Hendel's Magnesium Oil
Got this mag oil for my mother and she swears by it. She doesn't have to use much of it to get the full benefit, so the bottle will likely last her quite a while.

If skin sensitive, Use in foot bath
The only drawback is that if you use it full strength or half strength and spray it on your body, it does not absorb well. Some also have a skin sensitivity to it.
To alleviate this problem, I use it in my homedics foot bath. But, any container, that a foot or your feet fit into will work. Just add an ounce or two and soak for 15 minutes. I do it watching the TV or reading a book.
When magnesium levels are low, transdermal, as mentioned, is a great way, and from what I've read, the only way to increase magnesium levels.
This does work well and I have not skin sensitivity issues when used in a foot soak.

I read an article about how necessary magnesium is for the body, but that in the oral form, its hard for our body to use. I checked out other sources for the magnesium oil but Swanson had the lowest price, Of course the high quality is just what I've come to expect from Swanson. It has been very very effective for me.

I bought this product as a way to add magnesium to my system through my skin but it gave me a rash and burned my skin. My skin is a little sensitive so I'm sure this product is fine for some people, just not for me.

Best price of all Magnesium Oils
Three times less expensive than Ancient Minerals.
Exact same product, exact same Ancient Seabed, Exact same concentration of Magnesium and other minerals and trace minerals.
Why would anyone pay $120.00 for Ancient Minerals when you can get the exact same product for $39.99????

Desire to have full effect
I bought this product because I wanted to have full effect of magnesium for better health.
using a liquid spray is a different form of taking supplements. other than it being runny after spraying it works fine.

Thank you Swanson vitamins! I love the quick service and the quality products. I've already recommended both this product and your website to many family, friends and acquaintances. My husband and I enjoy foot soaks every weekend and enjoy a relaxing night's sleep on a night when we can sleep in the next morning.

Don't waste your money
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.

Mag Oil Stings Revisited
Yes, I just received my jug of magesium oil and rubbed the oil sparingly into my knees after a shower and it also stung my skin.
I remember the previous reviewer mentioning this in their review.
It does go away slowly. I read the printed material on the jug and it states if it irritates the skin discontinue use.
I am going to dry it again this time without having bathed. Maybe the shower opens the pores? Here I go.........NO
So my advice is do not use after bathing or being in warm water to avoid opening the pores and feeling the sting.

Might just be me.
I love Swanson and the great products and prices, however, the Magnesium Oil burns my skin. At first I thought it was just because I had shaved my legs, but it even stings my arms, face, etc. The feeling goes away eventually, but it is not fun. Would not buy again and don't know what to do with this bottle.

Outstanding stuff. Would recommend Magnesium oil to most everyone. My skin never felt so good. The price is the best I've found anywhere.

The best source of Magnesium I have found.

I tried this after having used the pricier Ancient Minerals Magnesium for a couple of months, and the only significant difference is in the price. Quality is on the same level, and Swanson Ultra Magnesium Oil is so much less expensive, it's a no-brainer. This is the best value on the market for Mag. Oil... thanks Swanson!!!
