good brand of magnesium topical cream?

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.)

Except for seafood, most foods higher in Magnesium are simply going to exacerbate her IBS.

Any reason you aren't just getting magnesium from whole food sources? Are you Low carbing or something?

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.
