Sweet Dreams Magnesium Massage Spray

This spray is helpful for insomnia, muscle pain, restless leg syndrome, restless mind, and tension. It’s safe for ages 2+ (use half the amount of essential oils for children 2 to 4 years of age.)

Magnesium deficiency is extremely common and can cause various symptoms, including migraines, anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, and muscle spasms. This bedtime magnesium spray combines the power of relaxing essential oils and magnesium to help calm and soothe your mind and body for sleep.

Ingredients:

Directions to Make:

  1. In a 4-ounce spray bottle, combine the fractionated coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, and the lavender, sweet orange, sweet marjoram, and Atlas cedarwood essential oils. (I also added 1/2 teaspoon Olivem 300 as a solubilizer.) Gently swirl the bottle to mix.
  2. Add magnesium oil to fill the bottle.
  3. Cover the bottle and label and date your creation.
  4. Shake well before use.

Note: If you are new to using a magnesium spray, your skin may begin to itch at first. If that occurs, dilute the recipe with 2 tablespoons distilled water before adding the magnesium oil. You can use the recipe at regular strength when it’s time to refill your bottle.

Helpful hint: You can use store-bought magnesium oil or easily make it yourself. To make your own magnesium oil, mix ½ cup magnesium flakes (magnesium chloride, not Epsom salt) with 3 tablespoons boiling water and stir until completely dissolved.

Magnesium Oil Bedtime Massage:

Do this before bed:

  1. Shake the Sweet Dreams Magnesium Massage Spray well before use and spray it onto your arms, legs, and feet.
  2. Using a circular motion, gently massage the magnesium oil into your skin.
