How do I use the White Lion?
Just Rub it in!
If you have a sore muscle or skin irritation, just rub the White Lion into your skin. A number of ailments in your body can be due to a magnesium deficiency. Start with palm-sized amount in a single application, and massage the White Lion into your affected areas*. We recommend 1-3 applications daily, until the magnesium levels in the body have been fully are restored.
When using the spray bottle on larger areas of your body, try using 4 pumps per affected region. Pumping the spray bottler four times is approximately equal to 1/8 teaspoons, and provides about 100 mg of essential magnesium to where ever you spray it.
Spraying the White Lion on after a hot shower or bath has be proven to produce higher results. Since your pores are open from the steam, the magnesium is able to soak into your skin quicker!
White Lion can ALSO be used in a Bath!
We recommend you put at least 4 – 8 tablespoons, approximately 2–4 ounces**, of White Lion Magnesium Oil in your bath or foot soak, although more won’t hurt!
Soak for approximately 20 minutes for best results. We suggest soaking in your magnesium bath on a regular basis for best supplementation, depending on how much White Lion you use, it is recommended to soak in a bath 2-3 times a week!
*For intensive therapy (illness, eczema, etc.) the White Lion Brine can be used daily, although you should check with a doctor if you have any medical conditions. If you have never used a magnesium brine it is recommended that you start with a small amount to see how your body reacts.
**While 2 ounces is a desirable starting level, higher doses such as 4–16 ounces may produce better results. When using the spray bottle,16 pumps equals approximately 200 mg of essential magnesium, for baths and foot-baths it may be easier to uncap the bottle and pour the magnesium oil either into a measuring cup or directly into bath water.
What is Magnesium “Oil” / Brine
Magnesium “Oil” (or Brine) is a mixture of magnesium chloride flakes and water. Generally, when these two substances are combined the result is a liquid that has an oily feel. However, it’s not technically an oil. Most people would consider it a brine.
So, you’re probably wondering what Magnesium Chloride is! It’s basically a salt that can be extracted from brine or sea water. In North America, Magnesium Chloride is produced primarily from the Great Salt Lake in the northern part of Utah.
When Magnesium is in this form it is an easy-to-absorb solution that may be applied topically to the skin, which will raise levels of this nutrient within the body and thus giving the user its healing affects.
What other types of magnesium Supplements are there?
Magnesium can also be purchased in a supplement form such as a pill, capsule, or “oil”, typically where you would find other types of supplements. Magnesium “oil” is rubbed on the skin and is usually available at these stores in some type of spray bottle.
What are the benefits and uses of magnesium brines?
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It is an essential mineral for human nutrition and has multiple functions within the body. These functions include:
- Adjusting blood glucose levels
- Keeping the heartbeat steady
- Maintaining optimum blood pressure levels
- Maintaining a healthy immune system
- Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels
- Supporting healthy pregnancy and lactation
- Supporting protein, bone, and DNA health
- Regulating nerve and muscle functions
- And easing pain when applied topically
Magnesium can also be found naturally in many foods that we eat every day. The highest concentrations of Magnesium are found in:
- Dairy Products
- Fruits (such as Bananas, Dried Apricots, and Avocados)
- Green, Leafy Vegetables, such as Spinach
- Nuts and Seeds
- Prickly Pears
- Soy Products (such as Soy Flower and Tofu)
- White Potatoes
- Whole Grains (such as Brown Rice and Millet)
It’s also be found in some manufactured products, such as many breakfast cereals.
When you aren’t getting enough Magnesium in your system, a Magnesium Deficiency may occur in your body.
Magnesium Deficiency has been linked to many health conditions, some of which include:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Heart Disease
Most research completed on magnesium supplementation and these conditions has been centered around a dietary magnesium in food or an oral supplement. While the benefits of magnesium supplementation appear to be significant, there has been little clinical research completed to date on magnesium “oil” being delivered through the skin.
However, there has been one small study, which was reported in the Journal of Integrative Medicine, indicating that topical application of magnesium chloride on the arms and legs of patients with fibromyalgia saw reduced symptoms, such as pain. Participants were asked to spray magnesium chloride four times on each limb, twice daily, for one month. Since some people with fibromyalgia have too little magnesium in muscle cells, this would help credit the effects of topical magnesium reliving pain.

What are the side effects and risks of using topical magnesium?
In Clinical Studies, it is unclear whether topical magnesium oil has the same benefits as taking oral magnesium supplements or eating a diet rich in magnesium.
If you think you have a magnesium deficiency, or you simply wish to get more of this essential mineral into your system, you may wish to talk to your doctor or a nutritionist about your concerns!
If you decide to use a magnesium brine / oil, it is recommended that you test it out on a small patch of skin to see if you have an adverse reaction. A small amount of people has claimed to experience an unpleasant tingling, stinging, or lingering burning sensation. Other than that, no major side effects have occurred in recent studies.
It may be hard to accurately determine accurate dosage when using topical magnesium oil. Even so, it is always important not to overdo it. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommend that people, based upon their age, do not exceed the upper limits of magnesium supplementation
