Why the Itch? Discover the Secret Behind that Magnesium Tingling Sensation.

Are you a first-time user of magnesium oil spray, wondering why it causes a tingling sensation? Look no further! We can explain. 

Magnesium: The Key to Health and Wellness

Magnesium is a powerhouse mineral, playing a crucial role in your overall well-being. It can alleviate migraines, improve sleep, reduce anxiety and more. Unfortunately, due to our busy lives and modern diets we are often left magnesium deficient. Not to worry! Boosting your magnesium levels has never been easier, thanks to our 100% natural topical, magnesium oil spray. Spray 2 - 3 times morning or night and boost your magnesium levels easily. 

Some people do experience a tingling sensation after application. Let's explore why.


The Science Behind the Tingle

The tingling sensation caused by magnesium oil is closely tied to low magnesium levels in the body. It's not necessarily a sign of sensitivity to the oil itself. Several factors contribute to this sensation:

  1. Severe Deficiency: Magnesium oil may cause itching as a sign of low mineral levels. The more severe the deficiency, the more intense the tingling sensation. More from Well + Good on this view here. Consistent use of magnesium oil will alleviate these side effects as your body adjusts. 
  2. Skin pH: In the above article, Well + Good also interviewed skin dermatologists who believe the skin itch or tingling is due to the magnesium oil spray having a different pH level to the natural pH level of your skin, which can cause an itching sensation. 
  3. Excessive Application: Applying too much magnesium oil at once can intensify the tingling sensation. Take it slow, gradually acclimating your body, especially if you're a first-time user. 
  4. Vasodilation: Magnesium oil acts as a vasodilator, relaxing muscle cells and increasing blood flow in capillaries. This can contribute to the tingling sensation - it’s actually a sign that your body is absorbing the magnesium goodness!

“I couldn't believe the results from using Salt Lab Spray. I was getting regular headaches and since I started using the spray each night they have stopped. Also sleeping much better. Can't stop using this and have recommended it to friends!” Sandra K. Verified Buyer.

Unleash Your Magnesium Potential with Ease

Don't let the tingling sensation deter you from experiencing the incredible benefits of magnesium oil. Follow these tips to turn your magnesium journey into a soothing and enjoyable experience:

  1. Dilute First: Mix our salt lab magnesium oil with water, to dilute the solution when you first start, and gradually increase the magnesium concentration as your body adapts.
  2. Target Specific Areas: Start with smaller, less sensitive areas like the bottoms of your feet or tummy. 
  3. Apply to Hands First: Dampen your hand, then spray the oil first here and then rub onto the soles of your feet. This is good for kids who are starting out too
  4. Optimal Showering Habits: Finish your shower with lukewarm water instead of hot temperatures. This helps soothe your skin and prevents sensitivity and redness.
  5. Avoid Sensitive Skin: Avoid spraying magnesium oil on irritated skin, including rashes or wounds. Wait a few hours after shaving before applying our magnesium oil. If you experience razor burn, apply a cool compress and moisturise the area. 
  6. Moisturise and Soothe: After rinsing off the oil, indulge your skin with a luxurious moisturiser or coconut oil. This replenishes moisture, soothes your skin, and keeps it feeling fabulous.
