I Tried Magnesium Body Lotion to Help Me Sleep. Here’s How it Went!

If you’ve been following me on social media, I’ve been sharing how I’ve been dealing with insomnia issues brought on by stress. I’ve gotten tons of great advice from you guys like drinking tart cherry juice and putting magnesium oil on my feet (thank youuu!).

Something I was super surprised by was how well applying magnesium products topically on the soles of my feet worked at lulling me to sleep faster. Of course, it doesn’t substitute the effects of actually taking magnesium but it’s suuuch a good addition to my sleep care routine.

I just HAD to share more about my experience with using this super simple ingredient on my feet!

How I use Magnesium Body Lotion on my Feet

It’s sooo easy and only takes barely 3 seconds to do before cozying under the sheets. I just take a dollop of product for each foot and rub it gently into my soles. That’s literally it!

After 5-10 minutes I start to feel the effects. My mind and body begin to slow down and relax. I believe it really helps me fall asleep faster.

So I’ve basically tried all kinds of magnesium body products. I’ve tried magnesium sprays in the past, but I can confirm that they don’t work as well as lotions and oils, at least for me. I also don’t like the tacky feeling they leave after they dry.

I’ve really been enjoying this particular small business-made body butter made by Moonglow Minerals. There’s several things I like about it.

The ingredients are suuuuper simple. It has just 4 ingredients and they’re all organic: Organic Mango Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Magnesium Chloride. I don’t need a dozens of ingredients for what I’m using it for – just give me a ton of magnesium and an extra ingredient or two to moisturize my skin.

It’s housed in a glass jar when most products I’ve tried are used plastic or post consumer recycled plastic.

They have an unscented version. This is my personal preference because I already use a lot of scented products at night for my body lotion and my bedtime perfume, so it feels like overkill to use another scented product just for my feet.

This is also a brand whose entire line is magnesium-focused so they truly believe in the power of magnesium!

If you’re having issues falling asleep, give it try and let me know how it goes!

Interview with Moonglow Minerals Founder

I also interviewed the founder of Moonglow Minerals!

It’s wonderful to have you on the blog! Tell us a more about yourself and your path to creating Moonglow Minerals.

Gina: When I was expecting my 2nd child I was experiencing all kinds of issues from leg cramps, migraines, anxiety, unable to sleep and mood swings. About halfway through my pregnancy I went to an acupuncturist to get some relief. She recommended I try magnesium oil, especially for my leg cramps as they were awful. I went home that night and rubbed this oil all over my legs and it was the first time I was able to sleep through the night. I went on to use this oil everyday as it was helping with so many things, but I could not stand the way the oil felt on my skin. Even after I had my daughter I continued to use the oil as it also helped with postpartum depression. I knew there had to be a better way to get this magical magnesium oil into my body without the itching, drying of my skin and stinging it would do. That’s when I decided to infuse the oil into a body cream and started taking it to farmers markets and would sell out! That was 9 years ago where I started making magnesium products in my kitchen and now I’m manufactured and sold in a variety of places.</p>

What do you hope your customer experiences when using your products?

Gina: I hope they experience better sleep, less pain, less anxiety, better mood and most importantly better health. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for our health and one of the best ways to get more magnesium into the body is through the skin.

What have been your biggest learnings/successes/challenges with Moonglow Minerals?

Gina: I’ve learned the most about myself by being an entrepreneur. It takes a lot of discipline, patience and perseverance when running a business. The biggest thing is to not give up, especially when it’s not going how you thought. My heart has always been in this, so even though I didn’t know one thing about running a business, I know I love helping people and that is by far my biggest success, all the people I have helped with getting more magnesium.

Running a small business is harder than ever – do you have any advice for fellow solopreneurs?

Gina: My advice would be to be ready to put in the work. It’s not easy, but when you love doing something your ambition is bigger, your mission is bigger. Don’t give up on yourself, you have to be your biggest cheerleader!

What is your favorite product from the line?

Gina: My favorite product has always been my magnesium creams, though since introducing the bath bombs, they come pretty close to being my favorite.

What do you envision for Moonglow Minerals’ future and are there any projects you’re working on that you can divulge to our readers?

Gina: I envision Moonglow Minerals being a brand that makes people feel good, that gives them that glow from the inside out. Magnesium changed my life, my health. Many aren’t aware of how important it is to keep your magnesium levels up and Moonglow Minerals creates products all infused with magnesium to keep people glowing!
