        I use this on my tmj. It is a bit messy and can leave a white residue; however, the benefits to my tmj are worth it. I apply AM/PM and it seems to help the muscles relax

          Comments about Life-Flo Health Care Pure Magnesium Oil - 8 Ounces Oil:

          I have spinal stenosis which creates pain in my lower back and down my legs. I saw someone on Dr. Oz speaking about pain and taking Epsom salt baths every evening to help with the pain. I don't care for taking a bath with Epsom salts so I did some research as to why Epsom salts work. It came down to the magnesium. One website led to another, and ultimately I found magnesium oil - and the fact that magnesium is best absorbed transdermally. Prior to using this product I was having trouble sleeping because of the pain and I was walking around like a zombie. Since using this product for the past few weeks, I'm able to sleep and I'm beginning to feel like myself again. I notice less pain in general, so I believe that it is cumulative. I have stocked up and have told my friends and family about it too. I love it!

          Comments about Life-Flo Health Care Pure Magnesium Oil - 8 Ounces Oil:

          This magnesium oil is GREAT! I have Fibromyalgia and on muscle relaxers. This oil makes it possible to "spot treat" where I am having spasms or knots. As soon as it is rubbed in you start to feel an immediate relief!! I bought this because soaking in an Epsom salt bath...well any bath is gross to me! Also I really wanted relief without using something that can make it dangerous to drive! If you have chronic pain in muscles...please try this, it might even be useful for joints...but not completely positive on that!!! Magnesium also helps with sleep, so using this at night with an oral Magnesium helps, but it doesn't make you drowsy on its own! I would have given it 5 stars, but I don't like the drying after effect. It makes my skin itch and don't put on freshly scratched skin...OUCH!! I just wipe off the extra salt left behind and apply extra virgin coconut oil! Good luck and gentle hugs to all!

          Comments about Life-Flo Health Care Pure Magnesium Oil - 8 Ounces Oil:

          Read about transdermal application of Magnesium and how it is not a pain med, but that magnesium is a relaxor and it does relax the muscles, but does much more than that, by taking it transdermal it balances with calcium to make the bones and teeth stronger. Transdermal application works because it by-passes the intestinal track and to go to work directly in the blood system to help in over 325 body functions.

          My wife's back has hurt for over 20 years and one application and 3 minutes later her back quit hurting. A friend whose legs cramp at night and one application his cramps disappeared and he got a good nights sleep for the first time in years. Rub some on the temples and headaches are gone.

                  I can't tell yet if I am seeing any benefits from using this oil. But it seems like a quality product. It does burn a little on my skin, I have to rub in extra water with it and then it is okay. It is pretty annoying to use, but I read that it gets your levels up faster than an oral supplement, so I am going to stick with it for a while.

                    Comments about Life-Flo Health Care Pure Magnesium Oil - 8 Ounces Oil:

                    I apply 3 sprays on each leg every day and then massage it into my skin. I self diagnosed magnesium deficiency based on a list I created of 37 classic symptoms of severe magnesium deficiency. I have either eliminated or noted an improvement on 12 of the 37 symptoms during the 2 week period I have been using it. I do not notice any scent to this oil and it does seem to be absorbed by my skin very quickly without leaving any kind of bothersome very thick or sticky residue. I purchased the oil after my body failed to accept the two different oral capsule forms of magnesium. I have experienced no side effects from the magnesium oil and HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

                        I purchased this oil to relieve pain. My husband has arthritis. I put in on his knees, shoulders, hands, feet and ankles. It allows him to sleep at night without pain. He also walks better during the day. I used it to lower my blood pressure as I am low in magnesium even though I eat an excellent diet, and take supplements.

                        I have been taking magnesium supplements for awhile for constipation. Although it works, I typically have to take A LOT of it for several days before anything will happen. I have been reading about the wonders of magnesium oil and decided to give it a try. It seems to help the constipation significantly faster than taking supplements and I've been exploring all of the other benefits of using magnesium oil. I carry tension in my neck and shoulders which leads to tension headaches and some massive knots. I have been massaging the magnesium oil into my shoulders and I can't believe how much it eases the tension. I've even been sleeping better since using magnesium oil. I will say that it itches pretty badly when I first apply it, but the itch goes away in a few minutes. I know another complaint is that it leaves a flaky white residue that you have to wash off but I have not experienced this at all. In fact, my skin feels great!

                          I have used other brands of magnesium and they all seem to work. However, this is the best oil at the best price. I use it to lower my blood pressure by putting in on my body after a shower. After it drys I use a cream or coconut oil to take the salty residue off my skin. I have also used it to stop a migraine headache. Magnesium deficiency has numerous effects on the body.
                          My husband has been in great pain from his arthritis he has RA, which is the worst kind of arthritis. I put it on his feet, ankles, knees, legs, hands, and shoulders. It is the first time he has been able to sleep without pain. It also gave him the ability to walk normally again.
                          My daughter-in-law uses it on her neck and for foot pain. Most of us on a Western diet are low in magnesium. This is the fastest way to get magnesium into the system.

                            The only thing i DON'T like is how it makes my skin feel very dry, but that is very typical of all magnesium oil. I just wash it off (after 20 mintues) and my skin feels fine.

                            But, to me, the added benefit is that it's the best deodorant EVER!!! and I even add a few drops on my toothbrush when I brush my teeth.

                            How fast does this work?

                            Best Answer: It enters your system rather quickly. You apply this to the skin and can actually rinse it away 20 minutes later if the residue bothers you. This is probably the fastest way to increase your body's level of magnesium since the body cannot absorb all the magnesium if you take a capsule. If you are looking to increase your magnesium level, this is the best and quickest way to accomplish the goal.

                            Does this help with tremors due to deficiency? How long before you saw results?
                            A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Mar 31, 2014
                            Best Answer: I think it would help. This product works well and I saw results pretty quickly however, it is messy and stings at first so I switched to a product called ReMag by rnadrop, because their magnesium is 100% absorbed with zero side effects. I have felt the most improvement with the ReMag.

                            I use the magnesium tablets at night to help reduce muscle spasms. What are you using the pure oil for?
                            null n on Jun 20, 2014
                            Best Answer: The oil can help reduce muscle spasms also. I cannot tolerate the tablets. I just rub the oil into my skin at night before bed where I usually get night cramps. The only problem is it is kind of sticky and can itch on sensitive skin.

                            I stand at my job all day and have achy legs - does this help that problem?
                            A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jun 11, 2014
                            Best Answer: It might help... I tend to use the magnesium oil for localized areas like a sore or painful joint, and I take a daily magnesium supplement for more generalized aches and pains. As a side note, since the magnesium oil leaves you feeling "crusty" (like you just got out of the ocean), I usually put a lotion or fractionated coconut oil over it.

                            What is this product used for and how is it used?

                            Best Answer: Some people can't tolerate magnesium orally because of digestive problems. (Loose bowels.) The oil works transdermally so you can bypass the digestive system. Most people are deficient in magnesium so it can take a while to build up your stores.

                            The oil can feel a little irritating to the skin however. You can always add some to a bath but that can get costly. I purchased the oil due to ITBS. I was able to spray it directly onto my illiotibial band to get the mg directly where I wanted it. If you find it irritating you can spray on for 20-30 minutes before a bath.

                            If you just want mg and have no problems with digestive tolerance I like Calm powder. It really helps with sleep and is easy to take. Use both together if you are highly deficient.

                            has any one had success using this for restless leg syndrome? Does it really help with sleep
                            THERESA B on Jul 22, 2013
                            Best Answer: I have been using this magnesium oil for two years and really like it, although I do get tired of applying in twice daily. I do not have restless leg syndrome, however, what helped my husband greatly with RLS is
                            Natural Calm magnesium by Natural Vitality. He says it tastes good (a little sweet)and an added benefit to curing the RSL, he now is sleeping 8 hours per night. Good health!

                            My mother in law is 104, mostly blind, has restless leg and difficulty sleeping. I am thinking the oil might help the last two problems, but am wondering if it would harm or irritate her skin. She may have trouble applying it herself but her family could help.. She lives in her own condo and uses a walker to get around, and her mind and sense of humor are intact. It would be great to give her more comfort.

                            My question: Would her skin be too fragile at this point? would the oil be absorbed well enough to help her restless leg? (She had a strep problem on one leg but I believe that has been gone for 6 months or more.)

                            Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

                            Best Answer: I am 53 and found the oil to be irritating to my skin; as well, I did not find it to be effective. I had much more success with taking chewable calcium citrate magnesium (twin labs makes a sweet-tart type of tab and pioneer makes a chalky chocolately tab). Also, I always keep a bottle of water by my bed to make sure I am properly hydrated.

                            Magnesium oil was recommended to me by a massage therapist for my ITBS. I just bought some but my question is when is the best time to use it (many answers seem to talk about before bedtime) & how many times can you use it a day...twice?
                            Jerry B on Oct 18, 2014
                            Best Answer: I am not familiar with the use of magnesium oil for ITBS.

                            When you use the magnesium oil is also up to you. It might depend on how you apply it. For example, soaking in a bath with the oil mixed in the water might indicate before bed. Applying the oil directly to the skin might mean you can apply it anytime subject to whether it is uncomfortable with clothing touching the area.

                            How many times a day it is used is also up to you. We are not aware of any adverse effects using "too much" - whatever that means. Some people find spraying a few sprays at a time but several times a day is more effective than one larger dose in a bath.

                            It is all about what works best for you.

                            I heard magnesium oil rubs and baths are good during pregnancy. But need to know if this product is pure and free of other metals, etc.? Thanks

                            Best Answer: It's pure magnesium oil, don't really know about using it when pregnant. I'm using it for calf spasms. It kind of burns when applied to skin and leaves a white film. Not sure if I'd buy it in this form again. Easier to take a pill orally. Bought for a deodorant but it burned to much when I tried it.
