DIY Magnesium Oil Pain Spray including tips for making your own magnesium oil, how to use magnesium oil and information on what magnesium oil is.

I suffer from chronic pain and one of the things I hate the most about that is taking narcotic pain meds. I try to avoid them as much as possible. They have the potential for addiction, they make me feel gross and I just like to try to manage my pain as naturally as possible when I can.

I started taking detox baths a while ago for my chronic pain symptoms and I found that they really helped. The magnesium in the Epsom salt used in these baths is what is the “secret”. Although these baths help a lot, sometimes I just don’t have time to dip in the tub and when I saw you can make your own magnesium body butter, I wanted to make the oil that is used to make it. In addition to this oil (which is not actually an oil at all, but more of a thick solution), I added a bit of my Panaway essential oil blend from Young Living oils to give it an extra boost in pain relief. You should NOT use Epsom salt to make this. The kind of magnesium I used is different than what is found in Epsom salt. I used Pure Magnesium Flakes for this DIY magnesium oil pain spray.

Why You Should Use Magnesium Oil

Magnesium is a mineral our bodies need for everything from controlling muscle relaxation to being vital for our hearts. Magnesium oil can be taken through the skin so well because it absorbs into your blood so quickly this way bring relief for pain and aches within 5-10 minutes rather than the half hour to 45 minutes it would take a narcotic pain reliever. Since this is a homemade version, you also know exactly what is in it. For me, this is a huge plus. Magnesium oil is completely safe to use as well. You can use it on children to adults.

How to Use Magnesium Oil

Magnesium oil is like the coconut oil of spray on relief. I say this because it can be used for so many things! Here are a few ways you can use magnesium oil in your life:

Spray it on your feet for better sleep. do 5-10 sprays on the top of each foot and rub in. If using on children, use a bit of raw Shea butter (if they don’t have a latex allergy) or coconut oil as a carrier.

Spray 5-20 sprays on painful areas. Rub it in or allow it to sit on your skin. You will find relief within 5-10 minutes for mild to moderate pain.

Use it to boost massages. A back massage will never be the same when you spray this on before you rub it in. It will help with all those aches that we get from a long day.

The best part about magnesium oil is your aches, pains and cramps should get less and less frequent as you get your body up to par in it’s magnesium load. Most people are seriously lacking in magnesium in their bodies and this contributes to pain!

A Few Notes About Magnesium Oil

You may feel some slight stinging or tightness when you first start using it. This should get less and less as you continue to use it. If the stinging is too much for you, use it with a carrier oil such as avocado or coconut.

If you see a while film on your skin after, don’t panic. It is just the magnesium that didn’t absorb. Just brush it off.

Give your oil a gentle shake before each use to make sure it is well distributed.

This can feel drying to your skin. Feel free to apply a lotion over it after 10-15 minutes when it has mostly absorbed into your skin.

  1. Oh wow, nice I heard that Magnesium pills are good to take for headache. I didn’t know they had it as an oil. I usually use muscle cream for my headaches with rubbing it on my neck and forehead lightly. Thanks for sharing.

  3. My daughter suffers from a lot of pain. She takes Epsom salt baths, which give some help. We’ll have to check with her doctor about this idea. Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty – we’re looking forward to what you have to share next week. 🙂

  6. Can I use the magnesium oil you buy from amazon to make this? I have a great deal of pain and would love to try this.

    1. Well, you could, but this is a recipe to make magnesium oil, so I guess all you would need to do is add the essential oil.

  7. Btw, I already use the spray on oil, magnesium. Adding Panaway sounds genius. I hope this would work.

    1. I hope you find the results you need. 🙂

  8. What would the difference in effectiveness/absorbtion be if you use Epsom Salts for this recipe?

    1. Hi Robert, Thanks for stopping by! Epsom salt contains magnesium, however, it also contains it at much lower levels than magnesium chloride, which is what the flakes are and it contains other things such as sulfates. I think this would make your oil far less concentrated, thus weaker, and may not work. Hope that helped!

  9. Where can I purchase magnesium flakes ?

    1. Hi Rita, You can buy them on Amazon. These are the ones I always get as I find them to be the best value for the money. (affiliate link)>> https://amzn.to/2rOCR8H
