A delightfully aromatic Magnesium Tallow Balm formulated to calm the mind, gently relieve mild discomfort & support restful slumber. Magnesium is a crucial mineral to over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, especially those involved in stress and detoxification. By infusing our highly concentrated magnesium oil into tallow, we ensure that it penetrates deep into your skin, reaching cells with magnesium receptors.

Grass-fed & finished Tallow, Concentrated Magnesium Oil (Pure magnesium chloride harvested from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed, distilled water), simmondsia chinensis (jojoba oil) Olea europaea (olive oil), Whole/In-House Extracts of lavandula angustifolia (lavender), and Vanilla planifolia (vanilla), Local/Raw Beeswax
Begin with clean & dry skin. Scoop a small amount (a teensy bit goes a long way!) with clean hands or a teaspoon to lengthen shelf life and reduce risk of contamination.
Massage gently into desired area & allow time for absorption. Focus on any sore muscles or achy joints. I prefer applying to the bottoms of my feet before slumber or massaging my neck with a small amount when I need some extra calm. Avoid applying to freshly shaven skin or cuts, it WILL sting!
Note: If you happen to experience a slight stinging sensation, don't fret, this goes away quickly& may be attributed to a magnesium deficiency. To minimize, you can always add a small amount of another balm or oil before applying to skin or wipe off after 5-10 minutes to allow for optimal absorption.
Use as needed & adjust as you see fit. Safe for babes, young children & during pregnancy.

"Some 250 million years ago the Zechstein Sea was a concentrated inland saltwater sea, with many of the characteristics of the Dead Sea today...Magnesium chloride, a natural salt of magnesium, was plentiful in this sea and concentrated by a combination of flooding by sea waters and slow evaporation. Over time, these dense waters found their way deep into underground deposits, slowly accumulating through fissures in the earth over millions of years, trapped underground by overlying rock. Though the Zechstein Sea itself no longer exists today, the Zechstein salt beds are a perfectly preserved snapshot of pure magnesium chloride as it existed in its natural state, millions of years ago. This unadulterated pure magnesium chloride is drawn from the ancient Zechstein Seabed from approximately 2 miles beneath the surface of the earth."

Even though ALL of Slow's creations are made with pure and organic ingredients, and it is highly unlikely that any reaction will occur, it is still wise to always begin with a small amount to test for irritation.
Each product is made in micro batches by me in our home-based apothecary and there may be some variation from batch to batch, but ratios remain the same.
