Magnesium Sleep Lotion is an expertly-blended lotion that’s clinically proven to relax tired muscles, slow down sensory activity and quieten that busy mind, helping you reap the benefits of a deeper, less interrupted night’s sleep. It’s an essential part of our bedtime routine. 

This beautiful blend of Magnesium Chloride and Lavender comes in a quick-to-absorb water-in-oil formulation that maximises transdermal adsorption to relax both mind and body. 

A powerful mineral, magnesium is responsible for 325 chemical reactions inside the body and helps support calcium absorption, maintenance of normal bones and teeth, normal psychological function, and healthy functioning of the nervous system.  Magnesium also helps improve rest and recovery by contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, maintaining electrolyte balance and supporting normal energy-yielding metabolism.

With its deeply calming effect, Magnesium has long been regarded as nature’s finest relaxant for the entire body. In addition, Lavender helps slow a racing mind. Ideal for those who find it difficult to swallow tablets, it’s suitable for vegetarians and use during pregnancy, as well as being free from Parabens, Synthetic colours and Fragrances.  

Benefits of Magnesium Sleep Lotion: 

  • 5ml delivers 120mg of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium
  • A natural aid to better sleep
  • Absorbs rapidly into the skin, helping prepare the body for sleep
  • Naturally relaxes tired muscles
  • Lavender helps slow sensory activity and quieten the mind
  • Manufactured from carbon-negative, plant-based packaging
  • Suitable for children aged 13 and above
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Sensitive skin approved and atopic skin approved (suitable for eczema/psoriasis)

Directions: For optimal results, use as a part of your bedtime routine for a minimum of 4 weeks. Gently massage 5ml of the lotion onto clean, dry skin up to 30 minutes before sleep. After a shower or bath is a great time to apply as the skin is warm and the pores are open, which aids absorption. Suitable for use all over the body. Focus on areas such as the neck, shoulders and legs. Reapply whenever needed.

On initial application, you may experience a slight tingling sensation. This may indicate low magnesium levels and is the result of the high speed absorption of magnesium through the pores. This will pass with regular use and as absorption commences immediately, skin can be towelled off after massaging in.

For external use only, avoid contact with eyes. Do not use on damaged or broken skin. Supplements should not replace a healthy diet and exercise. Keep out of children's reach. No known contraindications with prescribed medications.

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 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.
