Restores magnesium levels while moisturizing your 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. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion replenishes depleted magnesium at the cellular level while soothing, hydrating and nourishing skin with a blend of plant moisturizers.

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. Applying magnesium lotion after a workout can help ease post-exercise muscle soreness.

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.

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.

I really love this lotion. I use it nightly on the backs of my legs and my feet, and I no longer have nightmares on the nights that I use it.

For now, I am happy and staying with Ancient Minerals magnesium lotion. It’s worth the price to at least try a bottle and see if it helps. Meanwhile, it helps me sleep!


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.

How many pumps do I use?

As general application instructions, we recommend 1 to 5 pumps per application, as often as you can work into your daily routine.

Where do I apply the product?

We recommend broad application to the torso, arms, and legs. Due to the potency of our topical magnesium products, please take care to avoid sensitive areas on the body such as the face, eyes, etc.

What kind of vegetable glycerin is used in Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion?

The vegetable glycerin that we use in our Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is organic glycerin derived from organic sunflower oil.

My lotion pump is not working – will not dispense. How can I fix this?

We’re sorry to hear that you are having an issue with our product. It is often necessary to “prime” the airless pump dispensing system utilized in our Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion. In order to prime the system, simply depress the dispenser button slowly 15 to 20 times in succession. This process of priming will activate the vacuum pump system and after completion, the system should function properly.

Airless pump bottles protect our magnesium lotions by preventing them from excessive exposure to air and other contaminants, thus increasing product shelf life and effectiveness. The airless bottle does not have a tube, but rather a diaphragm that rises to evacuate the product. When the pump is depressed it creates a vacuum effect, drawing the product upwards. Consumers can use almost all of the product without any waste or struggle to utilize the portion that ends up trapped in the bottom of a standard tube system.

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.
