Epsom salts
« on: May 05, 2018, 03:50:34 PM »
Hi all, has anyone ever bought any Epsom salt, magnesium sulfate in the Buriram area . I want it for gardening purposes and not for beauty, I am well past saving 555
The usual places in Nang Rong that I know don't have it and I even tried a pharmacy and no joy either. The quantity is pretty much immaterial as 1Kg or 25 Kg bag I would have to take what was on offer.
If you can help then thanks very much.
Regards
Bart

P.S is anyone else suffering blank white pages and missing photos on the site today or am I just my usual lucky self.

Thanks Freddy I had searched lazada but they are aiming at the beauty bunch and too expensive and some are perfumed too. I was hoping for somewhere that I could go to and look at it but thanks for looking anyway.

Thanks to a request from a good expat customer of my family owned home Buriram builders merchants store I now have in stock 25KG bags of Magnesium Sulphate also known as Epsom Salt. It seems popular for gardening purposes and according to Wikipedia Magnesium sulfate is used as a brewing salt in Beer brewing. Mr. Bob states Epsom salt can be used as a foliar spray or soil additive which will help tomato and pepper plants grow to produce larger, tastier fruits and vegetable in Buriram.

 If a product is on the ground in Thailand and sensible to transport to Buriram I am delighted to order new products for customers.  Thank you Mr. Pichai.

Other uses ;)

Epsom Salt Uses: HEALTH
Athlete?s foot: Soak feet in an Epsom salt bath to help relieve the symptoms of athlete?s foot.

Remove splinters: Soak affected skin area in an Epsom salt bath to draw out the splinter.

Treat toenail fungus: Soak your affected toes in hot water mixed with a handful of Epsom salt three times a day.

Soothe sprains and bruises: Add 2 cups of Epsom salt to a warm bath and soak to reduce the pain and swelling of sprains and bruises.

Ease discomfort of gout: Ease the discomfort of gout and reduce inflammation by adding 2?3 teaspoons of Epsom salts into a basin and immersing the affected foot/joint. The water should be as hot as it is comfortable. Soak for about 30 minutes.

Epsom Salt Uses: BEAUTY
Exfoliate dead skin: In the shower or bath, mix a handful of Epsom salt with a tablespoon of bath or olive oil and rub all over your wet skin to exfoliate and soften. Rinse thoroughly.

Exfoliating face cleanser: To clean your face and exfoliate skin at the same time, mix a half-teaspoon of Epsom salt with your regular cleansing cream. Gently massage into skin and rinse with cold water.

Dislodge blackheads: Add a teaspoon of Epsom salt and 3 drops of iodine into a half cup of boiling water. Apply this mixture to the blackheads with a cotton ball.

Remove foot odor: Mix a half cup of Epsom salt in warm water and soak your feet for 10 minutes to remove bad odor, sooth achy feet, and soften rough skin.

Remove hairspray: Combine 1 gallon of water, 1 cup of lemon juice, and 1 cup Epsom salt. Cover the mixture and let set for 24 hours. The next day, pour the mixture into your dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes before shampooing as normal.

Hair volumizer: Combine equal parts deep conditioner and Epsom salt and warm in a pan. Work the warm mixture through your hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Epsom Salt Uses: HOUSEHOLD
Clean bathroom tiles: Mix equal parts Epsom salt and liquid dish detergent and use as a scrub on bathroom tile.

Prevent slugs: Sprinkle Epsom salt on or near interior entry points to prevent slugs.

As a hand wash: Mix Epsom salt with baby oil and keep by the sink for an effective hand wash.

Clean detergent build-up on washing machines: Fill the machine tub with hot water, add Epsom salt, and run an agitate/soak/agitate cycle to dissolve detergent build-up (please consult your machine's instruction manual for specific instructions).

Epsom Salt Uses: GARDENING
Fertilize your houseplants: Most plants need nutrients like magnesium and sulfur to stay in good health, and Epsom salt makes the primary nutrients in most plant foods (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) more effective. Sprinkle Epsom salt once weekly to help nourish your houseplants, flowers, and vegetables.

Keep your lawn green: Magnesium sulfate crystals, when added to the soil, provide vital nutrients that help prevent yellowing leaves and the loss of green color (magnesium is an essential element in the chlorophyll molecule) in plants. Add 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt to a gallon of water and sprinkle on your lawn to keep the grass healthy and green.

Insecticide spray: Use Epsom salts on your lawn and in your garden to safely and naturally get rid of plant pests.

Every report I've read about Epsom Salts suggests it's a miracle substance. So I'm keen to try it on my veg garden. For a supplier I looked everywhere, including pharmacies and garden centres, but without luck.  Again Mr Pichai rides to the rescue.  But is there any chance of breaking down those 25kg bags for smaller users.  Perhaps one to five kilo bags while I work out its effects, storage requirements, shelf life etc.
Please import western yard brushes next, the local bundle of sticks is not very good.

With 101 uses in house and garden I reckon 380 baht is worth a punt. 

Now about those yard brushes, Mr Pichai
