The Natural Chill Pill

The Natural Chill Pill

Do you need to chill? Are you stressed, overwhelmed, feeling like you’re highly strung? Then you need some Salt Lab Magnesium Oil in your daily routine!

It’s Stress Down Day this month on July 24th. Did you know that magnesium has been dubbed the natural “chill pill”?

“Hands down the best magnesium spray I have ever used. Perfect for stress, anxiety, sleep & digestion. Can’t live without this now!” Alana M.  

It plays two important roles in the brain, which help relieve stress and anxiety. 

Firstly, it blocks the activity of more stimulating neurotransmitters and binds to calming receptors, resulting in a more peaceful, resting state.

It also helps regulate the release of stress hormones like cortisol, acting like a brake on your body’s nervous system.

Spraying our premium magnesium oil products daily and/or soaking in our bath salts can help ground you and bring a calmer state of mind. Check out our Starter Bundle and give it a go. 

The oil really works. My restless legs disappeared and my sleep has improved. Love this product. Helps when you get sore muscles or even with anxiety it calms you down for a good night's sleep. Thoroughly recommend this.” Karin K. 

The skin is the body's largest organ and has the ability to absorb substances, including magnesium, into the bloodstream. Topical magnesium spray allows for rapid absorption, bypassing the digestive system, which may be beneficial if you have compromised gut health or difficulty absorbing nutrients through the digestive tract.

Proper magnesium levels are associated with improved sleep quality too. Magnesium helps regulate the production of melatonin, a hormone that plays a crucial role in promoting a healthy sleep-wake cycle. By using our magnesium spray before bed, it may support a more relaxed state and enhance your ability to fall asleep and experience restful sleep throughout the night. And we all know how much better we function, when we’ve had more sleep right?

Magnesium can be a near miracle for alleviating stress and anxiety.

This incredible mineral works by a surprising number of mechanisms to induce a state of relaxation, calm anxiety, and keep the brain healthy.

Magnesium counters stress by binding to and stimulating GABA receptors in the brain. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a primary inhibitory neurotransmitter, one that slows brain activity.

When GABA is low, your brain gets stuck in the “on” position and it becomes very hard to relax. If you are easily overwhelmed, always finding something new to worry about, or lying awake at night with racing thoughts, you likely have low GABA levels.

A low GABA level is associated with numerous stress-related disorders, including generalised anxiety, panic attacks, and irritable bowel syndrome - just to name a few.

Excess levels of the primary stress hormone cortisol contribute to stress anxiety, brain fog, depression, mood swings, memory loss, dementia, concentration problems, insomnia, and mental disorders of all kind.

Magnesium restricts the release of stress hormones and acts as a filter to prevent them from entering the brain.


One of the most common signs of magnesium deficiency related to stress is tight muscles and tension. Sound familiar?

Tight muscles don’t just make you feel tense, they actually trigger the flight-or-fight response which, in turn, releases the stress hormones epinephrine and cortisol.  Our premium and all natural magnesium oil spray products can help your muscles relax and end this problematic cycle.


Addressing a magnesium deficiency can have a profound impact on your life. Expect to experience better overall mental well-being — feel happier, more relaxed, and more resilient to stress, have improved focus and concentration, increased energy, and better sleep. 

Our products are the ideal way to increase and maintain your magnesium levels with a few simple sprays added to your daily routine.
