  1. This is such a huge winner in our house from kids up to us adults. I have horrible restless legs and this has made a huge difference to me.

  2. This gel has been amazing on my nurses back but since being pregnant for the second time and having the worst restless legs this gel has become worth its weight in gold! So easy to make and provides so much relief

  3. Hi Krissy,
    This one is hands down one of my favourite especially having leg pain and back pain all the time. How long will the product last and how often can I apply it daily?

    Thank you so much?

  4. I have tried the recipe of magnesium gel, it did not combine well as in your video. I am wondering if there was not enough xantham gum. Your recipe calls for 2g, but one teaspoon should be around 4-5g depends on the ingredients. Please help.

  5. Can an organic sunflower lecithin work as the thickener? I use magnesium gell daily and it’s quite expensive at 100$ a gallon and I’m greatly interested in making my own. But I have very sensative skin and concerned about using anything new on my skin.

  6. Hi Krissy, would I be able to add Ice Blue oil blend from Doterra to this recipe for extra help to sooth aching and painful muscles? Thanks for your help.

  7. Thanks Krissy, love how easy this was for being a new DIYer. When I transfer to jar it is still quite warm, do I leave uncovered to completely cool or place in fridge or anything? Sorry but worried about ruining it now I have had what seems a successful creation.

  8. Hi Krissy I’m wondering would this go into a roll on bottle as I bought some magnesium rollons and they were really handy ☺️

  9. I made this today with Guar Gum, as my health food shop didn’t have any Xantham Gum in stock. It turned out very think and sticky, almost like slime. Is this because I used Guar Gum, or is it meant to be this consistency?

  10. I already use and luv the Whipped Magnesium Cream & the Magnesium Oil so decided to try the Gel. So easy to make and great addition to my pain management routine. Thanks Krissy for continuing to inspire us
