I'm wondering if the labeled Borax available here in Australia as a multi-purpose cleaner, stain remover & deodoriser is safe to ingest? It is made by "Bare Essentials", developed with "shannon lush" and marketed by Pascoe's, 13 Casino St, Welshpool, Western Australia 6106 - www.pascoes.com.au.
The label states it contains 990g/kg Borax and comes in a 500g container.
Is there anyone living in Australia, who has posted on this website that knows of, or has used, this particular product internally.
I would be most grateful for any responses.
Hi, You can buy Harper's powdered borax at IGA; I did until I discovered I could get a 20kg. bag from Blants wellbeing and lifestyle, much cheaper even with freight. They are closed over Christmas New Year.
In Australia, we have packages of borax in the clothes washing aisle. Not a large selection. Don't get the scented one.
Emanuel , try IGA that's where I bought mine
Hi guys, I search to find good quality Borax which is safe to take. I find only Glitz Green by Bunnings Melbourne from Pascoes 100% made in china. I don't trust this Product... Have you a tip where can I find borax in Melbourne. Kind regards emanuel
Bare Essentials Borax 500g is available from Coles supermarkets in Australia. You'll find it in the cleaning aisle. I add a tiny bit to a drink every now and then.
I bought Borax today at Bunnings in the cleaning section. Borax hasn't been available for number of years but it might enjoy a comeback. According to the label it is imported from china, contains 100% borax and has no further additives.
Hi I bought it from coles in the clean aisle!
Borax / pure from Turkey can be purchased on ebay australia, good price, fast delivery
Hi... Great website.... I was hoping you coud tell me where to buy borax in australia... Many thanks, Stacy
I think Borax has been removed (banned?) from normal retails sales in Australia.
I was able to get a 25kg bag from an agricultural supplier ('Landmark') as it is used on farms for various purposes including as a fertilizer supplement. When they asked me what I used it for I just said to control ants (it clogs their digestive system and kills them very effectively).
They gave me an MSDS (Materials Safety Data Sheet) which was very informative and I paid $28 for the bag.
No probs. The product was "Actibor 11", and it is over 99.9% pure borax decahydrate (11% Boron). There is also "Actibor 15" which is the Pentahydrate version (15% Boron).
This is the product. It is made in Malaysia: www.activemicrofert.com.my/products_agriculture_actibor11.html
Hi fellow Earthclinic readers. I would like to follow up on some older (2009-2010) entries about availability of Borax in Australia. I live in Tasmania and have searched IGA, Woolworth, Bunnings and some hardware store and no luck. Some staff knew exactly what I wanted but stores no longer sell. This could be because of Tasmania's isolation, could also be across the board in Australia. The only source I finally found was at a waste management firm in Melbourne that sells it for A$ 4 per kilo. I just ordered 2 kg and was told that product is pure and has no added chemicals or fillers, but could not obtain a chemical analysis. Does anyone know about or use this product? At present day what is the availability elsewhere in Australia. I am regularly in Melbourne and have friends in Adelaide, so if there is a better source could you pls let me know. Blessings of health to all readers.
I use Sigma Borax powder 250 gram tube (blue/white label) which I obtain from the local chemist. It costs about $9.00.
Hi All, I have been getting ready for taking Borax in Australia. First I was thinking of getting it from USA but delivery is over $60. I then followed your comments and got it from Bunnings. The problem is that Hovex Borax from Bunning has only 980g/kg of Borax the rest is other staff like deodorants etc. I then went to Woollies and got it as Bare Essentials Borax small container. Both products are made by Pascoes. I knew Hovex Borax has 98% of Borax and other chemicals which I would not like to drink but I did not know what Bare Essentials had so I asked the company to send me the Material Safety Data Sheet. I learned that Borax Bare Essentials is Chemical Formula:B4-O7. 2Na. 10H2-OChemical name/ingredient DISODIUM TETRABORATE DECAHYDRATE 100%. I then asked for Material Safety Data Sheet from the most popular Borax taken by most people in USA 20 MULE Team Borax and compared the ingredients etc. Chemical Formula:Na2B4O7·10H2O. Chemical name/synonyms:Sodium tetraborate decahydrate, disodium tetraborate decahydrate, borax decahydrate, Borax 10 Mol 99%. I was not terribly good at chemistry but it looks to me the same. I can only tell you this: Borax Bare Essentials is even better because contains 100% of Borax and 20 MULE has 99% of Borax and 1% of something they did not describe. Please be careful, after my experience with colonics with Myrrh I learned that taking things easy is important. I am also impatient due to the years of suffering but this time I took my time and it paid off. Good luck, I am drinking my first liter of water with borax today. After drinking lemon and BS for 3 weeks I also noticed that my skin is cleaner- less oil coming out etc. I think I will get there with this Candida.
I get my borax from IGA the independant store, it was in a round plastic tub in the laundry aisle32 and is 99% borax, I have used it and it hasn't killed me. I'm wondering if the other 1% is just fillers, dust, and whatever comes with the borax when they abstract it. Hope this helps. Lily.
Borax is also available in Woolworths in Australia in the cleaners/disinfectant aisle. 500g tub for $4.00
i qouted the price for the borax wrong. it is actually a bit over $5.
hi tracey bunnings sells 1kg tubs of Hovex Borax in the laundry aisle where the cleaning products are 4 arnd $11. i jus stumbled across it 2 weeks ago at my local iga supermarket next to the bleach products. it costs abt same price as bunnings & so saves me having to go out of my way 2 get it next time
Hi Tracey, You can actually buy Borax from Bunnings or any other hardware store. I have just started with both topical and internal treatment, and can already feel it working.
Hi Tracey, 20 Mule Team borax is what is sold in my part of 'the States'.....another post here stated the gentleman ordered it online; I find it in the grocery store in the detergent aisle.
I have been reading about Rosecea and specifically Ted's Borax remedy and have been trowling the website. I have been suffering from this ailment since 1998 and have been using a steroid cream this whole time which doesn't cure but controls. Ted Thank you so much for you research and information as I have tried many different meaures over the years with only limited success and this is the first real sign of hope.
My question has been asked before by a Melbourne person but could not find the answer - as I live in Australia, what is the brand of BORAX/BORON that I purchase to safely use in your preparations. I am keen to start your remedy and eagerly await your reply.
Thank you again for a wonderful site...I too have recently started to reduce my flouride intact so will read more haevily on this topic. TS
