How to Lose Weight Using Magnesium Oil



How to Lose Weight Using Magnesium OilMagnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body, taking part in over 350 body reactions. Without magnesium a cell wouldn’t be able to produce energy, the body wouldn’t be able to make hormones we need to function. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in metabolising sugars.


Magnesium deficiency leads to stiffness in the muscles and joints, build up of cholesterol plaques in the blood vessels, anxiety, lethargy, depression, poor sleep, water retention, weight gain.  If you want to start your weight loss program, make sure that you take ample amounts of magnesium, because without sufficient magnesium levels your body will not be able to produce enough energy to start shedding the pounds.

Best Ways to Supplement Magnesium


Oral supplementation (in capsules, or tablets) is probably what most of us would think about first.  However, not all of us can absorb oral magnesium efficiently.  Much magnesium we take orally passes through the body without a chance of ever getting to the cells where it is needed most, since it is a natural laxative.


This makes transdermal (via the skin) magnesium supplementation a more suitable and attractive option for most people. Transdermally, magnesium gets into the cells – where it is most needed – much more quickly than it does when taken by mouth.


The most popular ways to supplement magnesium through the skin is a bath, a spray, or a massage. Body spray and massage are most economical ways to do it. Just spray or massage the body with magnesium oil once a day after a bath or a shower. Leave it on for 1 hour, or even overnight if you can, and you should feel the relaxing and tension relieving effects of magnesium very soon.


Transdermally, magnesium can also be added to a bath, foot bath, or used in a compress. For a bath I suggest using magnesium flakes as the more economical way to achieve the best concentration. Use about 500g -1kg of magnesium chloride flake in a bath, and 250g – 500g in a foot bath. Such procedures are most beneficial before bed time, since deep relaxation resulting from and increase of magnesium in the body will certainly promote sleep. To use it in a compress, mix magnesium oil with hot water (1: 4 ratio), soak a cloth, apply on the area which is causing problems, cover it with a plastic sheet, and leave on for 2-3 hours, or overnight.


The Wrap – Lose Weight Using Magnesium Oil


Far Infrared Magnesium Wrap is an amazingly relaxing and therapeutic treatment  aimed at those who are desperately deficient in magnesium and need quick supplementation. The symptoms of magnesium deficiency are general fatigue, slow metabolism, raised levels of blood sugar, cramps, mood swings, anxiety, muscle stiffness, cramps, low energy levels.


The treatment uses far-infrared heat to open up pores and boost circulation not only in the skin, but in deeper body structures. With the pores open and blood flow increased, magnesium stands a better chance to be absorbed quickly and in large quantities.


The treatment is preceded by a massage to stimulate circulation and soften up the tissues. The infrared heat helps open up the cell membranes, which contributes towards magnesium absorption. It promotes detoxification on a cellular level, helps to relieve aches, pains, muscle spasms, arthritis, sleep problems, fatigue, boost immunity, promote relaxation, help relieve water retention and is a really great start to a weight loss program. People generally lose a lot of water during the treatment which has an added physical effect of feeling lighter afterwards.


Unlike many other weight loss activities, transdermal magnesium supplementation does not require you to starve yourself, or go for hours on the treadmill, even though if you are serious about weight loss, making gradual changes in the your physical activity levels and nutritional habits would help speed it up.

Anyone can learn to do the wrap – therapists and members of the public. It can be done at home. If you want to learn how to do it, see more information here.

    Very Interesting!! I knew about the oral form of magnesium, but never knew you could use it as a massage oil. Will have to look for some and give it a try.

    Hi Tamsin,

    Yes, magnesium is such a versatile mineral, and the good thing is that it gets absorbed through the skin. You will feel the effect straight away – excellent for aches and pains if you have any, or just to relax.

    Best wishes,

    Oh wow, this is definitely something I need to look into! I know I am suffering from a lack of magnesium because I experience all the symptoms you mentioned!

    Thanks Galina!

    Hi Bonnie,

    I think all of us can benefit from more magnesium in our bodies, and transdermal supplementation is such an enjoyable way to top them up. Do get some Epsom salt, and start enjoying your magnesium baths! 🙂

    Best wishes,

    It’s been ages since I had a magnesium bath – so relaxing. Time to dig out the old epsom salts maybe!

  8. galina Says:

    Hi Jan,

    And you won’t regret it one single bit, I promise! Excellent for any aches, pains, a stressed mind, and better sleep! So do dig that Epsom salt out, and enjoy the experience! 🙂

    I never knew about magnesium to lose weight, but I have been aware of it for aches and pains. I often get these horrible pains in my shins at night and my doctor said it was due to not having enough magnesium. Right now I just make sure to eat plenty of bananas but I wonder if one of these oil baths would work in its place…gotta admit a break from bananas would be nice lol

    Hi Misty,

    Try taking baths – or at least foot baths. Make the foot bath quite hot and deep, to submerge the ankles and shins. Use about 200g of Epsom salt per bath, as often as you need. It should help you with the pain fairly quickly. 🙂

    Best wishes,

    What an interesting article. I had no idea magnesium oil even existed. I have a lot of these symptoms, but my labs return normal for this mineral. Even so, I would imagine that I am lacking since my diet is poor and I lead a sedentary lifestyle.

    I’ll keep this in mind for future reference. Great article!

    Hi Cynthia, it is a remarkable salt, and I cannot live without it – helps with any aches, pains, or tension. Try introducing it into your life, and see the way you feel change. 🙂
