Magnesium flakes are an incredibly beneficial mineral, promoting wellness and relaxation. The Salt Box offers a premium range of magnesium flakes in Australia, helping you perfect your self-care routine.
Magnesium flakes are a highly concentrated form of magnesium chloride, a natural form of magnesium. Magnesium chloride naturally occurs in the ocean - Mg + Cl (2), which means it’s a salt. Magnesium chloride is also present in the intercellular fluid in our bodies, with the flakes typically being used in baths to promote rest and relaxation.
At The Salt Box, our magnesium flakes are from the Ancient Zechstein seabed, 1600m below Northern Europe. These exquisite flakes are free from modern pollutants, making them incredibly nourishing for the body, skin and soul. The brine (salty water) is drawn up from deep under the earth and then dried into flakes, making it one of the most nourishing substances to soak and relax in.
It is generally not recommended to consume magnesium flakes, as excess consumption can cause a laxative effect. Instead, magnesium flakes are typically used in foot baths or full body baths to promote bodily relaxation.
We suggest using magnesium flakes to promote psychological wellness, like stress relief, making it an ideal component of your self-care routine. Some physical benefits of soaking in magnesium flakes include:
The above benefits make magnesium flakes ideal for those who regularly work out, experience arthritis, suffer from constipation, or even face certain skin conditions. Chloride is also known to ease blood pressure and the body’s digestive system, making it an all-round wellness experience.
The Salt Box makes it easy to enjoy this enriching compound, selling magnesium flakes in various sized packages for your own personal needs.
We suggest applying magnesium topically and let it absorb transdermally. Typically, magnesium flakes can be enjoyed in a therapeutic bath. Simply add 1-3 cups of magnesium flakes into a warm bath, and soak in the bath for around 20 minutes to let the magnesium penetrate the skin. If you happen to be pregnant, try using a warm (not hot) bath. You can also use magnesium flakes in a smaller vessel as a foot bath. Finally, make sure to hydrate after your bath ro replenish your body.
