Zechstein Magnesium Chloride Mother Earth’s 250 Million Year Old Healing Treasure

Last week Fighting With Fibro  shared a cream that worked on her Fibromyalgia pain. It was a magnesium based product, being curious I had to understand the difference of the type she purchased. The magic word is Zechstein, many products claimed to relieve pain and a host of other problems but they didn’t have Zechstein included in ingredients. https://fightingwithfibro.com/2019/02/19/finally-something-that-actually-works-for-my-fibro-and-rls-pain/

I could not find the brand she bought and bought two other brands from Amazon. Austra Melt pain away and Ancient Minerals Ultra with OptiMSM. The Austra Melt pain away smells so good with Lemongrass essential oil. It’s non-toxic, eco-friendly, not tested on animals and Paraben free. The container is round and you have to scoop out how much you want. I felt relief but was having a rough day so didn’t judge too harshly.

The next day I tried the Ancient Minerals Ultra with OptiMSM. WOW, this did make a difference in some of my ongoing and most painful areas. I also like that it is a pump and you can control better the amount needed. It soaks in the skin very quickly, very light pleasant smell. I get up in the morning before writing and rub into hands and it’s pretty amazing for a critic like me.


The Zechstein is a unit of sedimentary rock layers of Middle to Late Permian age located in the European Permian Basin which stretches from the east coast of England to northern Poland. The name Zechstein was formerly also used as a unit of time in the geologic timescale, but nowadays it is only used for the corresponding sedimentary deposits in Europe.

If you want to read the history of Zechstein in depth here is a great site,
