***May experience temporary itchiness…it is normal*** This is quite a common reaction when first applying magnesium topically, however this will subside with continued use.
To reduce the reaction, we recommend the following techniques: -
Apply only a small amount to any individual skin area and massage in well.
Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open.
Vary the application areas, avoiding sensitive or broken skin areas.
Little but often is the key. Massage in and wait for a minute or so then try a little more.
Magnesium oil causing itchiness can be the sign of low levels of the mineral in your body. Therefore, the more severe the deficiency is, the more severe the sensation. Itchiness is often a side effect when magnesium deficient skin is first introduced to Magnesium Oil. This "urgency reaction" causes the blood vessels to open quickly, creating friction under the skin. This sensation and other side effects should subside when the product is used consistently and the body no longer has the "urgency reaction".
Too much magnesium at once
Slapping a ton of magnesium oil on your skin can be tempting if you are deficient, however, it is not always the best idea. Suddenly ramping up the amount of magnesium oil you apply may contribute to the stinging sensation. Gradually get your body get used to the topical magnesium oil, especially if you are a first-time user.
Magnesium oil acts as the vasodilator that relaxes muscle cells and increases blood flow in capillaries. This may also cause a stinging sensation.
Technically speaking, magnesium oil is Magnesium Chloride Brine, i.e. salt water. Once the oil has been absorbed into the skin, it may leave behind a slight residue, which can trigger itchiness for individuals with sensitive skin.
