Magnesium: Your Secret Weapon For Calm

Have you ever felt like, when you get home, it has just been chaotic for that day. Actually, for a while. I you just feel... tense. Even a little anxious. There just seems to be the never-ending to-do list, the tiny humans demanding constant attention, the feeling like you're spinning your wheels.... and you feel tired. Tense. Chaotic. I get that too. I know these feels.

This is why I love magnesium so much. It is a natural way to calm your nervous system and bring you back to centre. This essential mineral is like a secret weapon for your nervous system, helping you move from fight-or-flight mode to a state of calm and relaxation.

The Stress Cycle & Where Magnesium Comes In:

Moving in and out of a stressed cycle is normal. Actually, it is necessary. The cycle goes a little like this.

👉 You Get Stressed: Life throws some life challenges (toddler tantrum, teenage moods, needing to be at 2 places at once, overflowing laundry basket, whatever!) and your body goes into fight-or-flight mode. This is a natural survival mechanism that releases cortisol, preparing you to deal with the stressor.

👉 The Adrenals Take Charge: Your adrenal glands release cortisol, giving you that burst of energy and focus to handle the situation. Job done.

👉 Back to Normal (Ideally): Once the stressor is gone, your body ideally should switch back to a relax-and-digest state. This is where magnesium steps in!

👉 Magnesium kicks in: Magnesium helps your body relax the sympathetic nervous system (the fight-or-flight side) and promote the parasympathetic nervous system (the relax-and-digest side). This brings you back to a state of equilibrium – calm, relaxed, and ready to tackle whatever comes next.

The Problem with Chronic Stress & Magnesium Depletion:

Now, imagine living in constant stress mode. Maybe it's a demanding job, parenting challenges, or just the general chaos of life. This can deplete your magnesium stores, making it harder for your body to naturally shift gears and enter that relaxed state.

The Result? Dis-Ease:

😣 Tightness and Tension: Muscles get all wound up, leaving you feeling stiff and achy.

😣 Headaches: Yuck, a tension headache just adds to the misery.

😣 Trouble Sleeping: Stress and a wired nervous system make it hard to drift off or stay asleep.

😣 Feeling Unrested: Even after sleep, you wake up feeling drained and exhausted.

The Power of Topical Magnesium:

So, what can you do? Consider incorporating topical magnesium into your daily routine! This convenient option allows for fast-acting absorption through the skin.

Imagine the Benefits:

😃 Loosey Goosey (in a good way!): Muscles feel relaxed and tension melts away.

😃 Clear Head: Say goodbye to brain fog and hello to a sharper mind.

😃 Sleeping Beauty: Drift off to dreamland and wake up feeling refreshed.

😃 Energized & Ready to Go: Magnesium can even boost your energy levels, helping you tackle the day with a smile.


Magnesium isn't a magic bullet, but it can be a powerful tool in your self-care arsenal. By supporting your nervous system and promoting relaxation, it can help you navigate the stresses of life with more ease. Feeling overwhelmed? Reach for the magnesium spray! Having trouble sleeping? Give your body a dose of calm before bed.

Lets ditch the dis-ease and embrace a more relaxed, energized feeling. Try our Magnesium Spray, Cream or Bath Soak. Your body (and your sanity) will thank you for it.
