Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes are dry flakes of magnesium chloride hexahydrate and other trace minerals, in a convenient and economical form for utilization in baths and foot soaks. Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes are approximately 47% magnesium chloride by weight, which means they blow epsom salts out of the water in terms of magnesium content, efficacy and absorption.
Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes are extracted from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe, which is 1600 to 2000 meters deep in the interior of the Earth. Well protected for the last 250 million years, this seabed offers the most pure magnesium flakes in the world and this is why you’ll find a mark of purity on every container of Ancient Minerals bath flakes.
For therapeutic use, simply dissolve 1 to 3 cups of magnesium flakes (or more) in full tub bath or foot bath and soak for 30 minutes or more. The temperature of the water should be 101F to 103F (not hot), since excessively hot bath water causes the skin to eliminate rather than absorb. Following the bath, rinse skin with cool running water, then pat skin dry with a towel and apply a natural moisturizer.
When you take just one to two baths per week in these magnesium flakes, you’ll find yourself with faster workout recovery time, better sleep, more relaxation and less stress!
