I haven' tried that yet. Does it work well for you? Do you buy it or make your own?
It works really well
for me. I seriously wonder if I could have made much progress at all just taking oral Mg. I now look at oral Mg as being very second rate compared to transdermal Mg.
I buy both magnesium chloride flakes and Mg "oil". I bought the Mg "oil" when it was 1/2 price at swansonvitamins.com I buy the Ancient Minerals flakes (clinical pack) at amazon.com
I make foot soaks from the flakes. I have also made Mg "oil" from the flakes a few times by mixing water with the flakes. The mixture was about 2 cups of flakes to 1 cup of water.
I find the transdermal Mg to be far superior at getting Mg into my body and with no stool-softening effect whatsoever it never even goes into the GI tract.
It is recommended to start at a low dose of Mg (oral or transdermal) and gradually increase the amount.
Epsom salts are another form of transdermal Mg and is magnesium sulfate
. I have read that magnesium sulfate is not as effective, though. So I use the magnesium chloride, instead.
Transdermal Mg does seem kind of pricey, but If one is serious about getting magnesium, I consider it clearly the way to go.
Here is an article from the "Mg doctor" I have found to be really helpful:
