Why we use Magnesium Chloride // Magnesium Flakes in our bath soaks.

Magnesium flakes are an incredibly beneficial mineral, calming the nervous system while promoting wellness and relaxation. At Hide + Soak we offer a premium range of magnesium flakes blended with other wellness enhancing minerals, botanicals and essential oils. We care deeply about your wellbeing. Our goal is to create products to help you to slow down and enhance your self-care routine.


Magnesium flakes are a highly concentrated form of magnesium chloride, a natural form of magnesium. Magnesium chloride occurs naturally in the ocean, making it a salt that is a combination of magnesium and chloride. The magnesium chloride formula is MgCl2. This means it consists of one magnesium atom and two chloride atoms. Magnesium chloride is also present in our bodies and a critical component for over 300 biochemical functions in the body. 

Our Magnesium Chloride is harvested using solar energy from a pristine lake high up in the Tibetan Plateau. Naturally chemical free and tested in Australia for contaminants. Our Magnesium is high in minerals and an approved ingredient by Australian Certified Organic. These amazing flakes are free from modern pollutants, making them incredibly nourishing for the body and mind.



We love Magnesium Chloride (magnesium flakes) as they are highly soluble in water making them easily absorbed and utilized by the body.

Magnesium Chloride has the ability to increase magnesium levels in the body when absorbed through the skin. 

Soaking in Magnesium Chloride has a long list of benefits including:

  • Easing cramps 
  • Soothing sore muscles and joints
  • Improved circulation
  • Hydrating of dry or damaged skin
  • Balancing Hormones naturally
  • Help with sleep, falling asleep and staying asleep
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Ease migraines

The above benefits make magnesium flakes ideal for those who are active, are athletes or work in physically demanding jobs. If you suffer from arthritis constipation, digestive upset or even certain skin conditions you may benefit from a soak in Magnesium Chloride. 

Our Magnesium Bath Salt Soaks have been lovingly designed to calm your body and mind while assisting your overall health and wellbeing.  Simply add 1-3 cups of one of our magnesium bath soaks into a warm bath, and soak for around 20 minutes. If you want to soak just in Magnesium Chloride, why not try our bulk 25kg bag? You can use in a warm bath, in your cold plunge pool, your backyard pool or in a simple foot bath.
