I find epsom salt baths helpful for easing the colon spasm I get with IBS. For obvious reasons I don't take baths in the summer - way too warm in my apartment as it is. So I figure a cream I could rub on my abdomen would be a good substitute. I googled "magnesium topical cream" and they clearly exist, but can anyone recommend a brand? (I can't it orally - the laxative effect makes my colon even crampier.)

You can find or make your own magnesium "oil" (it's really just a suspension of magnesium salts in distilled water but it feels oily going on). http://wellnessmama.com/5804/how-to-make-your-own-magnesium-oil/
I used Epsom salts to make my own, couldn't find magnesium chloride flakes. It seems to work.
