Say Goodbye to the Magnesium Itch: Tips for a Smooth Experience

"Why does Magnesium Oil make me feel itchy sometimes?" Is this you? If so, read on!

Magnesium oil, derived from magnesium chloride, is a popular supplement used to enhance magnesium levels in the body. However, some users experience a mild itching or tingling sensation upon application. If you've encountered this, rest assured—it's a common reaction and usually easy to manage. Let's explore why this happens and how you can enjoy the benefits of magnesium oil without the itch.

Why Does Magnesium Oil Cause Itching?

The sensation of itching or tingling when using magnesium oil can be attributed to several factors:

  1. High Concentration: Poppins Period Magnesium Mist is an undiluted solution. When applied to the skin, it can sometimes create a tingling sensation, especially if the skin is not used to it.
  2. Sensitive Skin: Individuals with sensitive skin or existing skin conditions may be more prone to experiencing irritation.
  3. Dry Skin: Magnesium oil can draw moisture from the skin, leading to dryness and irritation.
  4. Freshly Shaved: If the skin has just been shaved, you might feel more stinging.

Solutions to Reduce Itching

To help you get the most out of your magnesium oil without the discomfort, here are some tried-and-true methods:

  1. Follow Up with Lotion: After applying magnesium oil, wait for it to be absorbed (usually about 20 minutes), then follow up with a quality moisturizer. This can help soothe the skin and lock in moisture, reducing the likelihood of itching.

  2. Spray Before Showering: Applying magnesium oil 20 minutes before you shower allows the oil to absorb and do its job while minimizing the residue that can cause itching. The shower helps rinse off any residue that might otherwise irritate the skin.

  3. Dilute the Solution: If you find the pure magnesium oil (like our Magnesium Mist) too strong, consider diluting it. Our product ships as a pure, undiluted solution, but you can create a gentler mix. Remove some of the magnesium oil from the bottle and add back in water, giving you a 1:2 ratio of water to magnesium. (Feel free to add more or less water for desired potency.) Shake the bottle well before use. This diluted solution can be more comfortable for those with sensitive skin.

Additional Tips

  • Patch Test: Before applying magnesium oil to a larger area, do a patch test on a small section of your skin to check for any adverse reactions.
  • Gradual Use: If you're new to magnesium oil, start with smaller amounts and gradually increase the application as your skin adjusts.
  • Stay Hydrated: Ensuring your body is well-hydrated can help your skin cope better with magnesium oil application.

By understanding the reasons behind the itch and implementing these strategies, you can enjoy the numerous benefits of magnesium oil without discomfort. Whether you're using it for muscle relaxation, stress relief, cramps, headaches, or improved sleep, these simple adjustments can make your experience much more pleasant.

I hope these tips help you make the most of your magnesium oil. Magnesium Mist has been a huge part of my journey to leaning into natural solutions as my first stop! I'm so grateful for it's quick results. If you have any questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out. Happy spritzing!
