- Liquid DMSO can and will crystallize in a cold
environment. If this occurs, place or keep the DMSO bottle in a warm
location (15°C – 20°C), and within a few hours it should go back to
liquid form. For faster results, place the bottle in a clean zip lock
bag, seal it, and place it in warm water. Under any circumstances, do not microwave it!
- When using DMSO, always make sure to have clean
hands and skin. DMSO is a powerful pain reliever and transporter. If
you have dirt or anything else on your hands and /or skin, DMSO will
take it down to your deep tissue, as far as to the seventh layer into
the dermis, and it can cause irritation or discomfort.
- If using DMSO after a shower, it is recommended
to wait 30 minutes to an hour, as the pores in the body are wide open
and too much DMSO can be absorbed by the body, causing irritation or
discomfort. Also, do not cover areas where DMSO is applied; it should be
allowed to air dry.

starting with a small amount and gradually increasing the dosage, as the
product is very strong. If the DMSO is still too strong, we recommend

DMSO has many uses, but it is known mostly as a natural pain killer
and transporter. First synthesized in 1866, DMSO is a sulfur-containing
organic compound that is derived from MSM, and, according to Dr. Morton
Walker’s book DMSO: Nature’s Healer, it can be used internally or externally. As per our label claim, we only advise external usage.
DMSO can aid injuries such as sprained ankles, sore muscles and joints,
and even fractures. The process starts when DMSO enters the bloodstream
by osmosis through capillary walls. Then, DMSO is distributed
throughout the circulatory system.
DMSO has also been found to be a great product for Reflex Sympathetic
dystrophy (RSD). A 2001 clinical study conducted in the Netherlands
compared DMSO with NAC (n-acetyl-l-cysteine) for the treatment of
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). The study was randomized,
double-dummy controlled, and double-blind. For 17 weeks, 146 patients
received treatment, with the option to continue or switch medication up
to one year after beginning treatment. The study found that DMSO 50%
showed more overall improvement, especially for patients with lower
extremity CRPS and warm CRPS I.
DMSO also promotes immune system activity and can help in bodily
detoxification. Historically, DMSO has also helped conditions such as
neurological damage, arthritis, back problems, keloids, acne, burns,
musculoskeletal problems, sinusitis, headaches, skin ulcers, herpes, and
cataracts. Topical application has been associated with redness and
inflammation of skin, and a garlic-like taste and odor on the breath
have been reported.
