INGREDIENTS: 100% pure magnesium chloride flakes from the ancient Zechstein seabed in the Netherlands. One cup of flakes contains approximately 51 grams of pure magnesium chloride, and numerous trace elements from ancient seawater.

DIRECTIONS: For relaxing your body and mind, we recommend you put 1-2 cups (8-16 ounces) or more in the bathtub or footbath, and then soak for a minimum of 20 minutes. NOTE: The temperature of the magnesium bath should be warm (101 F to 105 F) rather than hot. When you add the flakes to warm (i.e., not hot) bath water, your skin will feel the results more effectively.

CAUTION: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. If irritation, redness, or discomfort occurs, discontinue use and consult a licensed health care practitioner.

Life-Flo offers a truly unique and extraordinary product: Pure Magnesium Flakes that are 100% pure and super concentrated! They are from the ancient zechstein seabed and work wonders for body and foot soaks! They are highly concentrated crystals of magnesium chloride; nothing added, nothing removed. They are extremely pure because the seabed lies 1,600 to 2,000 meters beneath the surface of the earth where it has been protected. Refresh your mind and body with these crystals in a bath or foot soak!

Pure Magnesium Flakes is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making my own magnesium oil I use magnesium oil (just flakes plus water and a MSM capsule added so that it doesn't sting) and the magnesium benefits get delivered right away, much faster than a tablet. Using flakes to make your own magnesium oil costs 1/10 the price of the pre-made stuff. Love my magnesium oil and I take a small bottle with me in my purse for quick pick me ups sprayed on my arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Learning about Magnesium I haven't been using the Magnesium long enough to truly comment on the effectiveness. I used the flakes to make Magnesium oil which I used to make a magnesium lotion. Love it so far :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You are most likely deficient in this mineral Add this to your bath or foot soak for a great nights sleep & general wellbeing. In general-Do your research, learn to listen and interpret what your body is telling you. It's time well spent & all you potentially have to lose is ill health.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes good magnesium oil Product was delivered undamaged and on time. The flakes dissolved quickly when mixed to make magnesium oil. The solution does not clog spray or become cloudy over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I Have Found I cannot recommend these magnesium flakes highly enough. I use 2 ozs. of flakes to 4 ozs. very warm water in a basin for a foot soak each day. I cannot tell you what they have done for me, but I recommend them to everyone I know and they are as excited about them as I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a great oil! I purchased this product so I can make my own magnesium oil at a fraction of the cost. I can say I am very happy with this product. The flakes dissolve and mix very well and there is no powdery residue when the oil is absorbed by the skin. To make the oil mix equal parts heated filtered water with magnesium flakes in a bowl. Mix well until the flakes are fully dissolved and then place the oil in an appropriate atomizer or simple spray bottle. So if the bottle holds 12 oz, its 6oz of heated water mixed with 6 oz of flakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I searched for a good magnesium for skin application and found this product. It was a good price and a good product, win win.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh... I got some of these flakes to try taking a magnesium bath. Tried it once and wasn't impressed. So I dissolved some in water to make "magnesium oil" to be used topically. Wasn't impressed with that *at all*. I rubbed some on my arms to try it. It felt sticky and slightly uncomfortable, with a mild stinging sensation. And it dried leaving a scaly residue. I may try doing a foot soak just to use up the remainder of it sometime. For now it is just sitting on the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I've been using the Swanson mag flakes for awhile and then discovered this new product, which is the same exact ingredient for much cheaper. Life-Flo is a good brand so it's a great find! I use a cup of these plus a cup of Epsom and a cup of baking soda in my bath for clearing out toxins. The addition of the mag flakes leaves my skin super soft. Just make sure to drink plenty of water (I add tiny pinch Himalayan salt for max hydration) and be careful getting out of the bath because the detoxing can leave you lightheaded.
