    1. While magnesium chloride is great for pain, I do not know about its ability to absorb moisture. But you could give it a whirl! You can use OxyClean – free, but I have found that it contains a lot of ash, typically in the form of washing soda. I have preferred to use Oxy products from a Dollar Store, but they have started to add fragrance, so I may return to OxyClean – Free. 😉

    I keep wanting to make my own. But end up always buying Tom’s. Or using nada. My fear is the expense and time. I love making my own essential oil blends. Adding some to this would make it even more awesome!
