Handmade Magnesium Body Lotion Created From New Zealand Native Oils
A natural blend of Magnesium and organic oils combined with essential oils of Black Pepper, Camphor, Wintergreen and Kanuka to relieve aching and tight muscles.
Magnesium allows increased muscle flexibility and helps reduce the build-up of lactic acid, which causes pain and tightness in muscles. By alkalizing and restoring a proper pH balance it works in conjunction with other minerals in your body to help your muscles contract and relax. Not getting enough magnesium in your diet can lead to muscular side effects, such as muscle weakness, cramps, spasms, or twitching.
Applied directly onto the skin Magnesium Oil Body Lotion is absorbed into the highly porous epidermis and through to the blood vessels and muscles beneath. Completely bypassing the digestive system where many nutrients are not absorbed. Transdermal magnesium offers an effective alternative to tablets and capsules
Essential Oils :
Camphor Essential Oil has excellent anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties which will help relieve muscular pain and reduce inflammation. Camphor essential oil has soothing and cooling properties and acts as an analgesic when applied to the body. When applied to the skin, it imparts a cooling effect similar to peppermint oil and helps block the pain nerves in the skin.
Wintergreen Essential Oil is readily absorbed through the skin and contains methyl salicylate which induces numbness and has an anaesthetic effect on the nerves. This property means that Camphor can eliminate pain and induce relaxation. Therefore, it is a combination of an analgesic and a relaxant. Wintergreen essential oil will eradicate pain and drive out stress and tension
Black pepper oil has anti-inflammatory properties and, therefore, can be used to relieve muscle pain and injuries. Perfect for the treatment of minor muscle injuries and aches.
Kanuka was used originally by the Maori for pain and inflammation relief, skin diseases, and to promote calmness and sleep. Kanuka essential oil is antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. Kanuka can be used for the relief of swelling and muscular pain, for sprains, strains and sports injuries.
