Enviromedica’s Ancient Minerals line of topical magnesium products are an effective, safe, and healing supplement for symptoms including anxiety, insomnia, and migraines.
Magnesium is seriously my favorite mineral out there, and I have found it to be transformative for the management of stress and symptoms related to PMS (here’s a great article with some ways to determine if you might have a deficiency). I have a feeling that I should do a whole blog post or podcast episode about all the types and forms of magnesium, but today’s review and giveaway include some fantastic topical magnesium products + information about how they work.
I was first introduced to the Austin, TX-based company Enviromedica when I attended the PaleoFx show back in 2016. I got to chat with the representatives and take home some samples. I never knew products like topical magnesium oil and magnesium lotions existed before then.
A major benefit of using topical magnesium products is that this type of use is not associated with digestive stress that can occur with other magnesium supplements that you take orally.
Additionally, here’s some information about the benefits of using the Ancient Minerals magnesium products by Enviromedica:
- Enviromedica is the only company that sources Genuine Zechstein® magnesium chloride source. Other manufacturers use inferior forms of magnesium, sourced from impure ocean deposits and contaminated inland water sources
- Enviromedica doesn’t use fragrances or toxic preservatives in its products. I’m particularly in love with the magnesium lotions that are so simple to apply and aren’t greasy at all. You may have heard me rave about the Goodnight lotion on my podcast; this one includes melatonin and it’s been awesome for helping me sleep through the night.
- It’s difficult to overdose using these topical magnesium products by Enviromedica because the skin self-regulates; that means they are even safe for kiddos and folks usually sensitivity to oral magnesium supplements

Besides the Ancient Minerals line, Enviromedica also sells other really interesting products, including one called Magnetic Clay. This one is also new-to-me and I had to do some research to find out exactly what it is. This clay bath kit comes with detailed instructions for how it is to be used, but it’s essentially a way to support the body’s detoxification of metals and other chemicals that can build up. You can read more here. I’m going to ask my functional medicine doctor about if/when I should do this, but I’m thinking close to the new year would be a good time (“out with the old, in with the new”-kinda thing).
Magnesium in general is one of my favorite and most healing supplements (read about how magnesium helps with insomnia, anxiety, and migraines here), and using it topically is one of my daily self-care routines. I buy the 8-pound bags of magnesium flakes and take a regular bath or a foot bath with them at least 3-4 times a week. I always sleep like a baby, too!
