Restores magnesium levels while hydrating skin

Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in over 300 biochemical processes. It supports heart health, builds strong bones, promotes nervous system and muscle health, and is essential to energy production. Every cell in your body needs magnesium to thrive, yet many of us are deficient. Formulated for use in therapeutic massage, Ancient Minerals® Magnesium Gel replenishes depleted magnesium at the cellular level while soothing and hydrating the skin with organic aloe vera.

Supports stress relief & relaxation

Topical magnesium provides a powerful way to ease stress and tension. Often called the “relaxation mineral,” magnesium calms nerves and muscles, supports healthy brain function and improves mood by regulating neurotransmitters that send messages throughout your brain and nervous system.

Eases achy muscles

Magnesium offers fast, powerful relief from everyday muscle aches and discomfort. It supports the healthy function of muscles, helping them relax and contract properly. Ideal for use in sports massage and other therapies, Ancient Minerals® Magnesium Gel can help ease post-exercise muscle soreness and general muscle tightness.

Promotes restful sleep

In addition to supporting stress relief, magnesium can help you get a good night’s sleep by helping to relax the body as your body prepares for rest. Especially when applied in the evening before bed, the “relaxation mineral” can help you fall asleep and sleep soundly through the night.


Genuine Zechstein Magnesium Chloride

Unadulterated pure magnesium chloride drawn from the ancient Zechstein Seabed, approximately 2 miles beneath the surface of the earth.

Organic Aloe

Widely considered an ancient gift from nature, aloe is a succulent plant that contains skin-hydrating polysaccharides. The gel its leaves contain is known for its powerful cooling, soothing and antibacterial effects.

Ingredients List

Water, Genuine Zechstein® magnesium chloride, hydroxypropyl starch phosphate, certified organic aloe barbadensis leaf juice.

100mg elemental magnesium per 1ml

How To Use

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel is a viscous formulation designed to remain hydrated on the skin.

Apply desired amount and massage thoroughly onto clean skin. If the magnesium gel begins to dry during extended use, wet your hands slightly and continue massaging skin to rehydrate.

Gel will not fully absorb. After use, rinse or wipe off with a damp towel.

It is normal to experience a tingling sensation during initial use.

Why topical magnesium?

Since ancient times, people have bathed in mineral-rich hot springs to reap the many health benefits that come from taking in minerals through the skin, a practice known as balneotherapy. Today, people all over the world continue to seek out hot springs for healing and rejuvenation. 

Topical magnesium is a convenient and effective way to replicate the ancient art of balneotherapy. It also allows you to maximize your daily magnesium intake without additional pills or the laxative effect often caused by oral supplements. And it can be applied directly where you need it most, with immediate results. 

Ancient Minerals® topical magnesium products offer a powerful way to replenish magnesium at a cellular level through your most efficient organ of absorption—your skin.

Where does Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride come from?

Ancient Minerals magnesium is harvested from the Zechstein seabed, isolated from the forces of modern pollution. Genuine Zechstein magnesium is globally the most coveted source of naturally occurring magnesium chloride in existence. The Genuine Zechstein emblem is a mark of purity on every Ancient Mienrals product, and is an assurance that you are receiving only the finest natural magnesium chloride in the world.

Is there a maximum daily limit for using Ancient Minerals topically?

No. The skin has a unique ability to self-regulate absorption, and therefore overuse is of little concern.

Are there any precautions for using Ancient Minerals magnesium products?

Avoid using Ancient Minerals magnesium gel, magnesium lotion or magnesium oil near mucus membranes such as the eyes and nose, which can cause some irritation.

In addition, though applying the magnesium oil and/or gel to broken skin or wounds can be highly therapeutic and cleansing, the high concentration of magnesium salts may cause discomfort. If you are using Ancient Minerals on broken skin or lesions (i.e. psoriasis, eczema, acne, etc.) it is strongly advised to begin with magnesium baths until the skin had a chance to start healing and become less sensitive to the higher concentration of magnesium chloride in the oil and gel.

Do I need to shower or rinse off Ancient Minerals Gel after using it?

Yes, our magnesium gels are formulated for massage therapy and will not fully dry on the surface of the skin. They are designed to remain to hydrated for maximum glide during deep tissue work. We strongly recommend rinsing or wiping off after allowing a minimum of 20 minutes for absorption, as our magnesium gels can become sticky/tacky if allowed to remain on the skin for extended periods of time.

Ancient Minerals Gel stings my skin. Is this normal?

Some users of magnesium oil and magnesium gel with sensitive skin may experience tingling and/or slight irritation at the site of application due to the high concentration of magnesium chloride. This is completely harmless and varies based on a number of factors, including how much is applied and where it is applied to the body.

Another option is to choose Ancient Minerals magnesium lotion or magnesium bath flakes, for use in foot soaks and/or full body soaks, which offer a gentler form of transdermal magnesium therapy, for those with extremely sensitive or broken skin.

Are Ancient Minerals products safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Our Ancient Minerals products are safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding. That being said, if it's your first time using our products, you may still want to consult with your practitioner prior to using them.
