Calming Magnesium Cream
Magnesium is critical to our health and an over balance of the body and mind. Required for so many of our daily body functions, magnesium really does stand above the rest of essential minerals. Magnesium has long been called a miracle mineral, because it is so critical to our overall health. It has been shown to help with a number of ailments and most people are deficient, even though they may not know it. Many symptoms of a deficiency can be anxiety, sleeplessness, abnormal heart beats, muscle spasms, migraines, high blood pressure, depression, irritability and many more.
"Magnesium is an essential element for both animals and plants, involved in literally hundreds of enzymatic reactions affecting virtually all aspects of life … Every single cell in the human body demands adequate magnesium to function, or it will perish. Strong bones and teeth, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous and cardiovascular system, well-functioning detoxification pathways and much more depend upon cellular magnesium sufficiency." - Weston A Price.
While we should be aware of our diets and what is causing the deficiency. Stress can deplete the body of magnesium and magnesium deficiency can lead to a ton of health problems! Research has found that putting magnesium on the transdermal way has many benefits. The greatest benefit of this type of application is that it is quickly and easily absorbed into the skin and bypasses the need to be metabolized in the gut, which if we are dealing with gut issues this may be difficult with supplementation. So, in addition to an oral supplement, this boost the magnesium our body is absorbing!

Marshmallow root is well known for its demulcent [inflammation-relieving] properties. It’s even thought to be effective at stimulating tissue regeneration, and because it’s been used for so long it’s a safe bet even for the most fragile skin types. The anti-inflammatory effect of marshmallow root may also help relieve skin irritation caused by furunculosis, eczema, and dermatitis.
Myrrh is thought to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. Studies have found that it increases collagen production as well as inhibiting elastase, the enzyme that breaks down proteins in the skin. Due to this it is thought to be a promising anti-wrinkle ingredient. Some studies have also suggested it may have some anti-cancer effects.
Lavender might be best known for its calming, aromatherapeutic properties but it actually has benefits for your skin, too.
