Magnesium Chloride Flakes
Great for mag.oil
I've been using mag oil for about 10 years, and using the flakes to make mag oil is the best option.
I don't measure when making the oil, I simply have a one qt. brown glass jar w/tight fitting lid.
I fill the jar to almost full, (>3/4, leave room for the foaming action), then I begin to slowly fill the jar w/filtered water,no need for it to be hot,cold filtered water is best. It simply takes longer to dissolve.
When using topically,I take 2 T.solution, add it to a one pt. glass jar, then fill with filtered water.This then becomes my mag.oil.
(1T.solution/16 oz. water is good,I double up on it.)

I love this stuff

I use this to make my own "magnesium oil" by dissolving it with equal parts of hot water, then pouring into a spray bottle. This is WAY cheaper than buying it in liquid form, plus it takes up less storage space. I like using topical magnesium, because I don't have to worry about having a bad reaction to additives in oral products.

I didn't know that such a product existed! I make my own body lotions and this melted easily into water. I then blended the magnesium water into some melted coconut oil with beeswax and it makes the most luxurious lotion! Would be great for a bath too. Great product at a terrific price.

This product was recommended by wellnessmama and I decided to try it.
2.2lbs is a lot of flakes. I've been able to share some with friends and family.
It helps with falling asleep quicker and deeper.
I plan on buying again when I run out.

swanson Magnesium Flakes
These mag chloride flakes are good. I used them as a foot soak and a bath. They were as well, if not better than the big name brand bath flakes. I also made my own magnesium oil with 1 cup of flakes to 2 cups boiling water. I then cooled it down and poured it into a bottle, capped it and used it as if it were the expensive mag oil. Nice! Swanson, I love you!

Love the foot soaks
My hubby and I do foot soaks using the mag flakes every weekend. We pick a night when we can sleep in as we are so relaxed and enjoy the rest and rejuvenation! Highly recommend.

Great stuff for foot soaks (20 - 45 min - best done in stainless or glass dish or pan). I dissolve it in distilled water to saturation and use in a spray bottle on bottoms of feet, and also on underarms for deodorant (but not if you have sensitive underarms).

I bought this so I could make my own magnesium oil. Its so easy to do and a much better value. I also enjoy having the flakes around to throw into a foot soak when needed. Magnesium is so important!

I use these flakes to make a supersaturated solution with distilled water (Mg oil). I use it out of spray bottles. I have given a lot to friends. They are all very impressed with the effects they have experienced.
