To make a solution for a compress, use 1 part of magnesium oil to 2-3 parts of water. You will also need a soft cloth, cling film and a warm cloth (e.g. a scarf). If you are using magnesium flakes, add 1 part of flakes to 6-7 parts of water.
For inflammations and recent injuries, where tissues are painful, hot and swollen, use a cool compress. To keep it cool, use an ice pack to apply on top of the soaked cloth. Make sure it is kept cool but not too cold since the blood needs to circulate to promote the healing.
For chronic nagging aches, muscle tension, back pain use warm to hot magnesium compresses. Do not use heat where it is already present in the body. Use cool compresses for conditions accompanied by heat, redness, pain and swelling and warm to hot ones for tight tense congested muscles, cold limbs and other areas where circulation is slow and tissues rigid and painful.
