https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnesium_sulfate

Don't forget that it is a chemical to be treated with respect.

For anyone else interested, there is one especially for use as a detox in a bath as opposed to taking internally. Discovered the chemist sells it. Many thanks for everyone's input.

I bought a kilo from a pharmacy on gasoline alley a year ago for less than €6.

Epson Salt is properly known as Magnesium Sulphate and is available in pharmacies in 1kg tubs. Just ask for Magnesium Sulphate as pharmacy may not know them as Epson Salt despite that name also appearing on the tub. I get it from the pharmacy in Stephanie Village, Tala.

Gasoline Alley is between The Main Paps store and Kennedy square. So named because of the number of Petrol stations on the road..

As Trev said, it's on the right heading from paps and just before the petrol stations. There is a small 4-5 space car park in front.
Just checked the tub and it's priced at €5.24 inc vat but that was 12-18 months ago.

At least two of the pharmacies in Chlorakas sell it for about 5 euros for a tub. I buy it all the time and swear by it for my R.A.
