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!!! 🙂
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!! 😀
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!! 🙂
I sprayed it on my legs and will see by tomorrow how it goes! So far no drying, and feeling pretty relaxed 🙂
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 🙂
How easy is that?! Took me about 5 mins 🙂
To break it down: Use 2 Tbsp melted Epsom salt water for ¼ cup lotion. Mine turned out really runny, I poured it in a spray bottle and just spray my legs after my shower in the evening 🙂 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!! 🙂 Have you tried Magnesium Lotion/ Epsom Salt lotion? How do you like it?
