hi all - does anybody in ireland know where to purchase 20 mule borax or another ingestable brand without having to buy through the internet. So far all I have been able to get is small 100g tubs and each time have to eaplain to the chemist what I want it for as they have to order it in especially. I cant see it in the supermarkets. It went off the market here years ago. I want ot use it in the bath and as a shampoo so the small quantity isnt enough.

Hi Tricia,

I've found an Irish website which sells lots of eco products for babies and they sell Borax in a 400g box for €2.40. I don't know if I can mention their name but they're based at Old Singland Road, Limerick. If you google 'eco baby products and free delivery in Limerick you should get them. I've just ordered a box for myself to tackle rosacea and recurring blepharitis and delivery is costing me €3.70 so altogether €6.10 which is very reasonable when you consider ordering from the US on ebay could set you back $30 for delivery alone.

Hope this helps!

EC: Hi Kitty,

Please let us know the name of the company -- would be helpful to our Irish readers. Thanks!

Hi Kitty,

How do you use borax for blepharitis. Can you give me details of how much to use, how often to use it, and what do you do with it, etc?

The company is called ecobrats.ie and I'm awaiting my delivery of Borax with great anticipation! Jackie, I've figured out that the rosacea and blepharitis have to be connected through my reading of various posts on Earth Clinic about demodex mites. When my Borax arrives I'm going to wash every stitch of bedding and clothing in Borax because it kills the mites. I also plan to wash myself with Borax. There are instructions on E.C.regarding ways to do this.

Until then I'm changing my pillowcase every night and taking one teaspoon of turmeric in hot water (topped up with cold) 3 times a day to clear the blepharitis. It is causing the gunk in my eyelid to surface quickly and clearing it up much faster than any other time I've had a flare up. I clean my eyes throughout the day with a moistened cotton-bud/q-tip to remove said gunk. The rosacea on my cheek also seems to have calmed down. I wash my face every night with about a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda with a little water added to make a paste. Rub it in like an exfoliant and rinse off with tepid water. Use apple cider vinegar to tone - you may want to dilute the vinegar if you find it's too drying. I then dab some tea tree oil on my rosacea, let it soak in and then use virgin coconut oil to moisturise my whole face and neck. I put the CO on my eyelids and eyebrows too and inside my nostrils as that's one hiding place for the mites! EW! In the morning I wash my face with a clean flannel and warm water and tone again with ACV diluted with a little water. You'll know yourself what feels ok for your skin. Moisturise again with VCO avoiding eyebrows as I don't want to look greasy during the day. It's early days but I do see an improvement. I might try Ted's remedy of drinking Borax solution also. I'll try it for washing only first and if need be I'll give drinking it a go.

The mites exist on everybody but only cause trouble when your immune system is weak. In my case this is linked to candida, something which is so hard to beat into submission. I've had success previously with sugar and yeast free diet but it's very hard to stick to when everywhere you go the only food you can eat on the move is laden with candida friendly ingredients. I have to instigate a lifestyle change, stop being so busy and make time to restore my health with good food. Thanks to Earth Clinic I am even more inspired to take charge of my health and get rid of candida for good this time and then hopefully become super healthy! Congratulations on your wonderful site and thanks to all.
