Nebulizing Magnesium Chloride
Vaporizing Magnesium Chloride
Magnesium Chloride Oil Concentration for use in a liquid nebulizer
chloride oil should be nebulized as a 7.5% isotonic solution –
delivering 7.5 g magnesium
chloride per 100ml of distilled water.
100 ml of this
strength solution contains a total
or ~100 mg elemental
magnesium / 5ml)
isotonic solution has the same salt concentration as cells and blood.
If making 7.5% isotonic
solution from magnesium chloride flakes -
add 7.5 g (~0.25 oz) flakes to 100mL (~3.5 oz) distilled water
If making 7.5% isotonic solution from 33%
(E.g. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Chloride Solution)
add about 3 ½ tsp. of 33% magnesium oil solution to
100 ml distilled water
If making 7.5% isotonic
solution from 35% magnesium
oil solution -
add about 3 ¼ tsp. of 35% magnesium oil solution
to 100 ml distilled water

How to Make Magnesium Oil
You should use a very
pure form of
chloride for nebulizing -
many products on the market contain contaminates, including lead and mercury.

In another study, researchers concluded that
magnesium helped to minimize the bronchoconstriction effects from sodium
metabisulfite, a common preservative in food and drugs.

Magnesium Chloride Oil used in a vaporizer
Another method for
bringing MgCl2 into the lungs -
is to add Magnesium Chloride oil to water in
a room vaporizer placed in a sick person’s bedroom at night.
