Review: Ancient Minerals

Ancient Minerals
Ancient Minerals magnesium products offer a convenient form of transdermal magnesium — absorbed through the skin — for those who prefer to avoid the hassle of taking pills and the difficulties inherent with poorly tolerated oral supplements.

Ancient Minerals is made and distributed by LL Magnetic Clay, Inc. We produce a complete line of pure, unadulterated natural products to address environmental toxicity, health, and well being.

The very kind & wonderful people over at Ancient Minerals sent me the following products to try out! I will try make this short but there is so much information it's hard not to make this a lengthy review. Below I have included the products & information from the website plus my own opinion. But first I want to go over the benefits of using Ancient Minerals magnesium products! Make sure you read the instructions on application plus how to take your Ph balance before use.

Benefits of Ancient Minerals Magnesium Products

Ancient Minerals magnesium products are healing by way of the skin, our body’s largest organ.
A form of transdermal magnesium therapy, our magnesium oil, magnesium gel, magnesium lotion and magnesium bath flakes are designed to deliver magnesium through the skin, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract for convenient, rapid absorption into the cells.
Some benefits of Ancient Minerals topical magnesium:
  • Restores cellular magnesium levels
  • Natural cellular protectant
  • Facilitates safe and effective detoxification
  • Relief of aches, pains, spasms
  • Elevates mood and relieves stress
  • Encourages healthy skin tissue
  • Helps maintain proper muscle function
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Supports a healthy immune system
  • Balances the hormonal system
  • Calms overactive nerves
  • Improves quality of sleep
  • …and much more
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes
Dissolved in warm water, our magnesium chloride flakes provide the user with a medicinal bath of cell-restoring highly soluble magnesium chloride.
Soaking in magnesium salts has been shown to markedly improve skin hydration, speed wound healing, enhance skin barrier function, and decrease inflammation.
One cup contains approximately 15 g elemental magnesium.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Chloride Flakes are:
  • Ideal for children and other sensitive individuals
  • Effective for stress relief and relaxation
  • Great for soaking achy muscles and joints
  • Highly therapeutic for psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions
  • Able to deliver extensive topical and cosmetic benefits
  • Available in a 1.65 lb (.75 kg), 6.5 lb (3 kg) and 32 lb (14.5 kg) professional size
Ancient Minerals bath flakes offer an economical form for creating a healing magnesium footbath or full tub bath. Temperature of the water should be warm but not hot. Hot water causes the skin to eliminate rather than absorb.

If you have achy muscles or just pain in general I would highly recommend this product. It works wonders. I also noticed that when I used this product while menstrating it eased the cramps & decreased other symptoms associated with that time of the month. When I added the flakes to my bath water it made the water have a silky feeling! My skin after use felt wonderful & also looked better!
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil is considered the gold standard for rapidly restoring cellular magnesium levels through the skin.
A concentrated transdermal magnesium mineral supplement, our absorbable magnesium oil contains only raw, ultra pure magnesium chloride and other trace minerals drawn from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Northern Europe.
One teaspoon contains approximately 560 mg of elemental magnesium.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Chloride Oil is:
  • The #1 most recommended magnesium oil in the world
  • Ultra-pure and highly concentrated
  • Rapidly absorbed into the skin
  • Easily applied in a convenient spray
  • Available in an 8 oz (237 ml) spray and 64 oz (1.9 L) professional size
Magnesium oil is a transdermal magnesium supplement, designed to deliver magnesium through the skin, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract for convenient, rapid absorption into the cells.
Your magnesium oil should be applied topically with a fine mist spray bottle. Simply dispense 1-3 sprays into a cupped hand, then rub into the skin thoroughly. Repeat to cover arms, legs, and any areas needing special attention.

Ancient Minerals magnesium oil is the gold standard for quick and efficient restoration of intracellular magnesium levels.

You may notice a salt like residue on your skin after application. So about 30 minutes after I would take a shower to clean my skin. The minerals take about 20 minutes to absorb into your skin so it's fine to bath or shower afterwards.

Guide To Application for magnesium use!

Formulated for even the most sensitive individuals, Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is designed to deliver magnesium through the skin, direct to the cells.
Rich in organic plant moisturizers including coconut oil and shea butter, this lotion soothes and hydrates without leaving your skin feeling waxy or greasy.
One teaspoon contains approximately 185mg elemental magnesium.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is:
  • Ideal for children and sensitive individuals
  • Highly therapeutic for psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions
  • Significant for massage applications
  • Effective at encouraging healthy skin tissue
  • Available in an 8 oz (237 ml) squeeze bottle

This lotion is unscented but makes your skin feel awsome! I also wanted to mention again to please read the instructions that are included with your products. You have to test your Ph & the instructions tell you exactly how to use, when & how much. Make sure your skin is clean of everything including other lotions, makeup etc. before applying.

LL's Natural Detox Clay Bath
LL's Magnetic Clay bath kits are packaged in bulk and will administer 10 one cup baths per kit. Included in each kit are 5lbs of bulk formula, 8 pages of graphic step-by-step instructions, 15 pH testing strips, fiberglass drain screen, flat drain stopper, and herbal formula pack.
This formula is our only LL's Magnetic Clay Bath that is free of all herbs and spices. Just pure, LL’s Magnetic Clay. For those who are exceptionally sensitive or have allergies to any of the herbs listed in our ingredients, this is the bath kit for you.

Again you must read the instructions before using this product & test your Ph. I have to admit I had to read the instrutions 2x to fully get everything I was suppose to do before using these products. You have to use a moisturizer so your skin doesn't dry out. Make sure your moisturizer is organic or free of any chemicals. You also have to replenish your electrolytes so make sure you have plenty of water waiting along with a bath robe until your pores close.

It takes a little time to see results (well at least in my case) but the results have been fantastic! My menstral cycles have been less painful & a nice decrease in symptoms! I have also just felt better with more energy! My skin also has a brightness from a dull looking color. The bags under my eyes have also decreased!
