Q: Why does it sting & make me itchy?

A: There is a very strong link between low levels of magnesium in the body and the stinging caused by magnesium oil. In most cases, people who experience this burning sensation during or after applying magnesium spray believe that their skin is sensitive to magnesium oil. However, this is not always true. The reasons why magnesium oil can cause skin tingling can be any or a combination of the following:

Lower levels

Magnesium oil causing itchiness can be the sign of lower levels of the mineral in your body. Therefore, the more severe the deficiency is, the more severe the sensation. Itchiness is often a side effect when magnesium deficient skin is first introduced to Magnesium Oil. This sensation and other side effects should subside when the product is used consistently and the body no longer has the "urgency reaction".

Too much magnesium at once

Slapping a ton of magnesium oil on your skin can be tempting if you are lower in magnesium, however, it is not always the best idea. Suddenly ramping up the amount of magnesium oil you apply may contribute to the stinging sensation. Gradually get your body get used to the topical magnesium oil, especially if you are a first-time user.


Magnesium oil acts as the vasodilator that helps relax muscles. This may also cause a stinging sensation.

Salt residue

Technically speaking, magnesium oil is Magnesium Chloride Brine, i.e. salt water. Once the oil has been absorbed into the skin, it may leave behind a slight residue, which can trigger itchiness for individuals with sensitive skin.
