How to Make Magnesium Sulfate Paste


How to make magnesium sulfate paste, an effective drawing salve for splinters, boils, cysts, ingrown hairs, and other skin-based home remedy purposes.

Magnesium sulfate paste is a crucial home remedy to have on hand to easily remove a splinter without using a needle.

It is a powerful drawing salve that is useful even for deep splinters that many people would go to the doctor to have removed (to the tune of $500 or more believe it or not … our medical system is SO broken).

My YouTube video showing how to remove a splinter is one of my most popular, with well over a quarter million views and counting.

In years past you could buy a small container of magnesium sulfate paste at the drugstore for under $10.

However, people have been reaching out to me recently with the news that this crucial remedy is no longer available.

I conducted my own search and cannot find it either…at least here in the United States.

Is it my imagination, or are simple, inexpensive, nontoxic remedies from the pharmacy disappearing slowly one by one?

Hopefully, it’s simply a temporary supply chain issue and not a deeper problem.

In the meantime, below is how to make your own magnesium sulfate paste, aka “Epsom salt salve”.

It will only take you a few minutes to make a batch, and a small container will last you for years!

Instructions

  1. Heat the water for 1-2 minutes in a small pan on the stovetop. Do not use the microwave.

  2. Remove the pot from the stovetop and immediately stir the Epsom salts into the hot water until fully dissolved.

  3. Let the mixture cool for 2 minutes and then pour the liquid into small containers. The mixture solidifies into a soft paste as it cools.

  4. Keep a container in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom and keep the spare in the remedy cabinet in the kitchen.

  5. If the mixture is a bit too hard when you need to use it, simply add a few drops of hot water to re-moisten and soften for ease of application to the skin.
