I have been using this product on a doctor's recommendation and like it very much. I have very sensitive skin, but tolerate it well. It does make my skin kind of sticky, but so do most other lotions. I've heard the magnesium is absorbed in the first 30 minutes and it's okay to wash it off after that. It does wash off easily. The lotion is very thick and was hard to get out of the old bottle, but the new pump container works brilliantly. The label says that 1 pump press = 20 mg magnesium + 25 mg sulfur. I filled a 1 tsp measure with 5 pump presses, which means that one tsp. delivers 100 mg magnesium. Mo' Maggies (the other brand with the best quality ingredients) claims to deliver 250 mg per teaspoon and costs significantly less, so I'm going to try it and see how well my skin tolerates it. It has the same type of magnesium (Zechstein), but different carrier oils.
After two years of hideous, debilitating pain in my neck and shoulders due to herniated discs and “text neck” with little relief having come from working with anesthesiologists, assorted neck braces and the like, I somehow stumbled upon this product. All I can say is WOW. It’s simply the best purchase I could have made. I applied it with ease, dries quickly, and within 20 minutes the pain that kept me on the couch all weekend dissipated by 90%. This product is indeed best in class.
I've been using the Ancient Minerals Magnesium in both the lotion & the oil for over a year now & we absolutely love it. My husband often gets terrible leg cramps at night & this is the only thing that has ever helped. Within minutes, the cramps go away & he is able to go right back to sleep with no further cramping that night. The oil is a bit stronger, but tends to burn if you have any cuts or scratches. The lotion doesn't seem to have that issue. As for myself, I suffer from restless leg syndrome & have had so many sleepless nights before I discovered this stuff! I rub it on my calves & feet before bed & no more creepy, crawly, heebie jeebies for me! I can't say enough good things about this product......it has been a life saver for both of us.
I have a lot of tension on the back of my neck. I've had massages, I've put heating pads on and they helped temporarily but just a little while. A friend told me about the Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion and she promised it would help. I thought it was a bit pricey, but still went ahead with it. The first night i applied it on the back of my neck, i slept like a baby. I continued applying it every night, and by the 6th or 7th day, GOOD BYE NECK TENSION! I can actually turn my head, i can look up and look down without pain! My husband was in a motorcycle accident a few months ago, had a broken foot, now that it's healed, he's experienced nerve tension on his foot and leg. This product has also worked great on him, it's helped him relieve the pain and relax his muscles. I"m in love with this product, i will totally recommend it and its worth every penny!
I get bad foot cramps & sometimes Charlie horse’s in the middle of the night & thought it was something I just had to live with. I came across this product by accident and said, “yeah right” that cream will stop my cramps? Ha. I decided to try it because of so many reviews. Well as soon as I start cramping & I apply it, it starts working immediately. I couldn’t believe it. I am buying another bottle. It works so well, no more suffering. I recommend this product.
I have taken magnesium orally for years. Unfortunately although it helps me sleep and allows my restless legs to relax, my stomach/bowels were not happy. In researching I came across this product. I love it. I get the same help without any stomach issues, and my legs are softer since using it. I would highly recommend this product.
I am so happy with the results I’m seeing using the Ancient Minerals Lotion. I have been using for about a month. I put the Ancient Minerals on my feet and legs, my hands and arms and anywhere else I feel I need it. I only do this at night.begore bedtime. I used to have pain and burin Get in the bottoms and tops of my feet. This is almost gone. I just reordered two more bottles of lotion. I don’t want to run out. I feel sleepy and relaxed after putting it on skin. I’ve also noticed less anxiety. Love this Ancient Minerals Lotion.
Purchased this product to help my CNS relax after a long night/morning working 3rd shifts. I took a hot shower after work (to open my pores so the transdermal product can absorb better) then i retired to bed. No less then lying down i was overwhelmed by an amazing feeling. It works!!! My legs were so relaxed, my body in general was relaxed. This now is part of my bed time routine to help normalize the stresses of 3rd shift zombie syndrome. Note, i have a strong sense of smell and it kinda smells like B.O. not noticeable for most people and not as offensive but it's there faintly.
