Magnesium Oil or Magnesium Butter - which one is best?


Can't decide which one will suit you best? Here are some tips:

MAGNESIUM BODY BUTTER

Designed for ritual application and enjoyment the Magnesium Body Butter is the one for massaging into your muscles and body. It's gold for getting right into tight muscles and soothing them into relaxation.

Even though both will work as effectively as each other the Magnesium Body Butter is absolutely sublime on the soles of your feet at night for encouraging better sleep. And you cant beat a good night's sleep! We like to keep it on the bedside table and apply last thing at night after a shower when the pores are nice and open.

Magnesium Body Butter can be enjoyed on the legs; calves, quads, hamstrings and glutes after exercise to soothe and iron out sore muscles when you need extra rubbing. We know that the Magnesium Body Butter with Peppermint is especially liked by runners as it has a cooling effect on the calves.

Magnesium Body Butter is the best one to try on kids because its more gentle. Mixed with organic Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil the butter softens the effect of the magnesium but carries it through the skin to where its needed. Our products are 100% natural and safe to use on kids.

For pregnancy we recommend trying the Magnesium Body Butter for the same reason, its more gentle on the skin. Especially suitable for stretching tummies and relieving stretching ligaments. For sore aching legs and feet it's just the best! Just avoid trimester one to be safe and start with a little pea sized amount to see how you go. A little bit goes a long way. Once you have had baby the Magnesium Body Butter is super useful on the shoulders and neck for relieving breastfeeding aches and pains, and a little bit on babies feet for helping them get off to sleep. 

MAGNESIUM OIL

Despite it's name the Magnesium Oil is actually a brine! Its a spray application, straight onto the affected area and it soaks into your skin quickly. So if you are on the run during the day and don't have much time, this is the one. Like a spray and walk away!

We also love the Magnesium Oil for places like the tummy it dries super quickly and its less oily under clothes. For a quick feeling of calm and to help reduce anxiety, a couple of sprays on the tummy and voila!

Or try the Magnesium Oil on the top of your spine to ward off headaches and migraines. Keep a bottle in your kitchen and as soon as you feel one coming on, apply straight away.

For period pain, spray the Magnesium Oil on your hips and lower tummy over the hormone areas.

You may feel a tingle on the skin when applying, and if so dont worry its perfectly normal. Its just the body telling you its depleted of magnesium and after time it will go away.

The Magnesium Oil is stronger than the Magnesium Body Butter although they both work effectively and are interchangeable. At the end of the day it comes down to your personal preference. Still can't decide? Try both with our Magnesium Duo Giftbox value packs. They come in medium and large so the whole family can use.

TIP FOR MEN: We find that men prefer the Magnesium Oil over the Magnesium Body Butter because it's quicker to apply.
