MINERAL WATER, To restore minerals in drinking water after distillation, reverse osmosis filtering, or in rain water, add about 3-5 flakes in 1.25 litres water.
Elektra MAGNESIUM CREAM
Elektra Magnesium Cream is another opportunity for the body to absorb magnesium via the skin. Just as the body absorbs vitamin D3 from the epidermis as required (after making it from direct sunlight exposure), magnesium is also absorbed via the epidermis via magnesium flakes hot water soaking, Magnesium Cream Moisturizer or Mg Oil Spritz topical application. The body will absorb as much as it needs to achieve homeostasis. When saturation is reached it stops absorbing at that time. Magnesium is constantly used in the tissue cells (skin, muscle, bone, hair etc) and needs to be replenished on a daily basis.
Elektra Magnesium Cream acts as a beautifully hydrating skin conditioner, whilst also providing magnesium and other trace minerals. It is made from a blend of exquisite plant oils like shea butter, macadamia nut oil, almond seed oil, apricot kernel oil and others. Magnesium chloride is infused with the oils in a special process, and natural essential oils are used for fragrance. One all-over application (13g = one dessertspoonful) gives 300mg of elemental magnesium.
Every individual is different with differing needs. You can relax and recover with Elektra Magnesium Cream once or twice a day all over your body as a moisturizer or with massage, or you can combine with magnesium flakes footsoaking or spraying Magnesium Oil Spritz on the body. Your body will give you feedback, as you start to feel the difference.
Application: Elektra Magnesium Cream works to hydrate, condition and rejuvenate the skin. It takes about 10-20 minutes to be absorbed by the epidermis after application. Avoid eye area or broken skin, as it can sting. If you feel a tingling sensation, this is normal as magnesium stimulates and improves (normalizes) circulation. The thinner and dryer the skin the more sensation is felt as it passes through. Most people don’t notice it, but in case you do, it’s only temporary during absorption. Over time a tolerance is built up. You can add any kind of extra plant oil (eg. coconut oil, rosehip oil, avocado oil etc) on top of the magnesium cream application to tone down the tingling if this happens. The more fats – the less sensation. (Hot water soaking with the magnesium chloride flakes also hydrates the skin and reduces or eliminates the tingling sensation, however, the higher the concentration, the more likely the sensation). Magnesium ions are better absorbed the more hydrated the skin.
When used in MASSAGE Elektra Magnesium Cream helps stimulate blood flow, oxygenation and circulation, and helps to relax and relieve tight muscles and joints. It is also effective in relieving itchy inflamed skin. If you happen to get a bit too much sun, apply extra magnesium cream to help soothe and rehydrate.
ELEKTRA MAGNESIUM OIL SPRITZ
Refreshing body spray. This is a water-based magnesium body spray which can be used in conjunction with Elektra Magnesium Cream (if skin is medium to dry) to deliver extra magnesium to particular areas. Each 125ml bottle of spritz contains 77 grams of magnesium chloride hexahydrate in solution of purified water (61.8%), plus essential oils of mandarin, juniperberry and rosalina for fragrance. 7 sprays contains approx. 400mg of elemental magnesium. Great for massage into tight or sore muscles and joints for relaxation.
