Magnesium Lotion (epsom salt lotion) Guai safe

Epsom Salt lotion/ Magnesium lotion DIY!

So, of course I try Magnesium Lotion when I have so little lotion left in my container that I can’t make a whole batch! But I LOVE it! It makes the lotion go further. YAY! and gives the wonderful benefits of epsom salts without the long bath. Double YAY!!! πŸ™‚

Magnesium is SOOOO good for you! Especially if you have fibromyalgia like me.

The weather is hot here, and being a healthier person (thanks to the Guaifenesin Protocol), I actually find it too hot! This is new for me! I used to live in Africa, just under the Sahara dessert. It would get 49 degrees Celcius in the shade, and I’d be out there for a run. Yep, sweating, but not unbearable! Now, it’s 28 degrees Celcius and I’m hiding in the shade! haha! My hubby tells me he knows when I am feeling healthy because I can’t sit in the hot sun like I used to! Apparently I am ‘normal’ now! BAHA!! πŸ˜€

All that said, I can’t do epsom salt baths, but I miss that relaxed feeling from the epsom salts! And to just spray the melted epsom salts would kinda dry out the skin, so this is a win win!! πŸ™‚

I sprayed it on my legs and will see by tomorrow how it goes! So far no drying, and feeling pretty relaxed πŸ™‚

Ok, so here’s how:

  • Melt your epsom salts in water, it will take a few minutes of stirring, just fyi:
  • 1/2 cup salts
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • once all salts are dissolved, add 2 cups sal-free lotion. I used Lubriderm unscented. It separates when it’s an oil-based lotion, if you want it to be thick instead of a spray, use a water-based thicker lotion, don’t use the one I did! lol πŸ™‚
  • Stir!

How easy is that?! Took me about 5 mins πŸ™‚

To break it down: Use 2 Tbsp melted Epsom salt water for ΒΌ cup lotion. Mine turned out really runny, I poured it in a spray bottle and just spray my legs after my shower Β in the evening πŸ™‚ Works wonderfully!

I am planning to make my own Epsom Salt lotion from scratch soon, subscribe so you don’t miss it! <3

I still take my magnesium Citrate at night, but this is an added bonus!! πŸ™‚ Have you tried Magnesium Lotion/ Epsom Salt lotion? How do you like it?

    What is sal lotion ???? please when your dding it all together

    • Christine says:

      Hi Sue! Sal-free lotion is Salicylate free lotion. For those of us on the Guaifenesin Protocol to treat the fibromyalgia. We cannot have salicylates in our topical stuff, it blocks the affect of the Guaifenesin from working to reverse our fibromyalgis symptoms <3
      thanks for asking!! πŸ™‚

    I am going to try this for me and also my mom who has terrible night cramps. May I ask how much mag you take to sleep? I am just trying this to get off Melotonin which I think is making me more foggy brained than normal. Thanks so much. I’m excited to try it. Kim Olson from FibroBuddies. πŸ˜€

      Hey Kim! Thanks for leaving a comment here! πŸ™‚ I have to take twice as much mag when I cheat on the HG diet, which has been alot lately. I’m on 6 150mg mag citrate and then lots of epsom salt lotion. Now I’m taking 50mg of bio-identical projesterone, which is really helping with the sleep too. I have chronic sinusitis and bronchitis now, so I take Benadryl at night too. But the Projesterone is what helps me to sleep through the whole night and not wake up caughing my brains out lol.

      Another thing you might try for the leg cramps is that dill pickle juice, works better than I ever imagined it would! Seriously! EVen if you have to buy tons of pickles to do it, it’s totally worth it! <3

    I’m only just getting started with the protocol, and I’ve been using homemade mag-a-hol for awhile now. I use magnesium chloride flakes and vodka. mostly because it absorbs through the skin so well. How guai-friendly is vodka?

Leave a lovely comment! I read and respond to all comments here and love to hear from you! <3
