The pump on my spray has stopped working. What do I do now?
Unfortunately, due to the nature of our products, occasionally crystallisation can occur in the pump mechanism, preventing it from working. This can often occur if the product hasn't been stored at room temperature or hasn't been used in a while. This can usually be fixed by removing the pump from the bottle and soaking it in warm water for no less than 10 minutes. After soaking, press the pump down firmly a few times whilst it is immersed in the water to clear any crystallisation. The pump must be clear of all water and dry before returning to the bottle.
Why does my body tingle when I apply it to my skin?
The most important fact to remember is that this isn’t an allergic reaction to magnesium, as magnesium is naturally found within the body and is vital to good health. This can actually be a sign that the body’s cellular magnesium levels are low. This tingling sensation is caused by the magnesium, which is a large molecule being rapidly absorbed through the epidermis. Another factor that can influence this reaction is the amount used on one area. We recommend using a small amount per area and increasing gradually. Also if you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation so avoid these areas. This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.
To reduce the reaction we recommend the following techniques:
- Apply only a small amount to any individual skin area. Massage in well
- Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open
- Vary the application areas to increase the bodies overall magnesium level
- Little but often is the key. Massage in and wait for a minute or so then try a little more
The key is to apply transdermal magnesium wherever it feels comfortable. The magnesium, once absorbed into the skin, is circulated around the body so there is no direct need to focus just on a single area. However, once your magnesium levels begin to rise you will find areas that were sensitive before are no longer. Magnesium Flakes can provide a gentle solution to raising your levels. Added to a bath or foot bath they can provide a lower concentration of the solution that will still help increase your magnesium levels.
