harvested from ancient deep Mediterranean deposits, free of fragrances, and other additional chemicals, and has many health benefits & uses. Natural Borax is an authentic pure BLANTs Natural Borax Do you know the origin of the Borax you buy? Are you aware much of the available Borax is produced synthetically? Why settle for a synthetic man-made alternative when

  • To Soften and Freshen Laundry - add about a cup of Borax to each washing load, either with the detergent or in the rinse cycle, to add freshness and softness to your laundry. One blogger commented It totally helps get the musty smell out of wet towels or workout clothes that have been left damp a little too long!
  • As an all purpose cleaning agent - mix 2 teaspoons of Borax with 2 cups of hot water. Shake to blend. Pour into a spray bottle. Somefolk suggest mixing 2 tablespoons of Borax for a more concentrated mix.
  • For the Bathroom and Kitchen - Distribute 1 cup of Borax into the toilet bowl at night. The next morning, clean out the toilet bowl with a brush. You will find the job effortless because the Borax has loosened all the grime buildup.This non-abrasive cleaner can also be used in the bathtub or on the counters. Remove stains from stainless steel or porcelain sinks with the following recipe - Make a paste with 1 cup Borax and 1/4 cup lemon juice. Using a sponge or cloth, rub the stain with the paste. Rinse with warm water.
  • As an insecticide - for flees, cockroaches and ants sprinkle Borax on dog beds, carpets, and other areas where you suspect that fleas are hatching. Shake out or vacuum. To stop ants invading your house, sprinkle Borax along ant tracks. They will be gone in no time! Also reported to eliminate pesky Asian ladybugs.
  • Mould Inhibitor - One blogger commented This method of inhibiting mould is very good to use on areas where mould and mildew is growing with the benefit of not damaging painted areas. Make a thick Borax and water paste. Smear it on the mouldy area. Let set until dry (overnight or longer). Sweep up the powder, and rinse off the rest.
  • Unclog drains with 1/2 cup of Borax followed by 2 cups of boiling water. Let is sit for 15 minutes, then run your water for a few minutes to flush it out.
  • Borax is an essential plant mineral.

Those uses alone are enough to merit Borax as an ideal substitute to harmful chemicals alternatives which can cause havoc with our health and environment.

Did you know Borax is an essential trace element for humans, and being low in this mineral allows a host of chronic diseases to take hold. BLANTs have researched its use in the body, and are convinced it can genuinely bring relief to many chronic muscle and bone conditions such as arthritis, and as with Magnesium, many of us are very low in Boron.


Although our research leads us to believe Borax warrants mention as beneficial to humans, it is controversial, as Australian regulatory authorities have banned the sale of Borax as an oral supplement regarding it as poison if taken orally. Since the only testimonies we could source were in reference to oral use of Borax BLANTs have chosen to include references and testimonies to Borax being taken orally, yet we as distributors are obliged to follow Australian regulation and do not endorse its oral use. However, very similar results can be achieved if used as a Bath Salt. Just as Magnesium is well absorbed transdermally [through the skin] so is Borax as this is exactly how it is absorbed in natural Boron mineralised waters that could be labelled ‘Miracle Waters’ where folk are reported to be healed of a host of chronic arthritic type conditions.

BLANTs have consulted with experts in this field who have provided priceless information regarding Borax concentrations in these ‘Miracle Waters’ We are confident that a Bath soak or even a foot-soak with our suggested concentrations will yield results similar to those ‘Miracle Waters’.

Much of the following illuminating information is extracted with permission from the literature of respected scientist, Walter Last and others.

Bones, Joints and Arthritis

Borax has excellent antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties with mild antibacterial action. It is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls, and the way signals are transmitted across membranes.
Borax is essential for healthy bone and joint function, regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus through its influence on the parathyroid glands. Boron deficiency causes the parathyroids to become overactive, releasing too much parathyroid hormone which raises the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from bones and teeth. This may lead to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay. With advancing age high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries; arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. Boron deficiency combined with magnesium deficiency is especially damaging to the bones and teeth.

Bone analysis showed that arthritic joints and nearby bones had only half the boron content of healthy joints. Equally, synovial fluid that lubricates joints and provides nutrients to the cartilage is boron deficient in arthritic joints. After boron supplementation bones were much harder than normal and surgeons found them more difficult to saw through. With additional boron bone fractures heal in about half the normal time in both man and animal. Borax is effective with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Juvenile Arthritis, and Lupus (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus). It is reported Dr Newnham wrote “It is commonplace to be rid of their pain, swelling and stiffness in about 1 to 3 months. Then reduce treatment to a maintenance dose”.

Borax, Calcium and Sex Hormones

Calcium and Magnesium that should be present in bones and teeth is lost in the urine as a result of Boron deficiency. Supplementing Borax will reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50% resulting in healthy teeth and bones! The beneficial effect of borax on bones seems to be due to a higher boron content of the bones which makes them harder, and a normalisation of sex hormones which stimulates the growth of new bone. Low oestrogen levels after menopause are thought to be the main reason why so many older women develop osteoporosis. In men, testosterone levels decline more gradually which is reflected in a later onset of osteoporosis. A study in men aged 29 - 50 showed that the level of free testosterone (the form that matters most) had risen by one third after a daily supplementation of about 100 mg of borax for one week. This is of special interest for bodybuilders. Research with boron has shown that elevated testosterone levels are beneficial by shrinking prostate tumours and PSA levels, PSA being a marker for tumours and inflammation in the prostate. Also significantly improved memory and cognition in elderly individuals may be partly due to increased levels of sex hormones and partly to improved membrane functions of brain cells

Borax and Candida

In normal healthy conditions Candida exists as harmless oval yeast cells. Under favourable conditions it can develop into chains of elongated cells and finally strongly invasive long, narrow and tube-like filaments which damage the intestinal wall, and cause inflammation and Leaky Gut Syndrome. Candida can also form tough layers of biofilm. This same study shows that borax inhibits the formation of biofilms and also the transformation of harmless yeast cells into invasive hyphal form.

Borax and Fluoride

Borax can also be used to remove accumulated fluoride and heavy metals from the body. Fluoride not only causes bones to deteriorate, but also the pineal gland to calcify and the thyroid to become underactive. Borax reacts with fluoride ions to form boron fluorides which are then excreted in the urine. In a Chinese study borax was used to treat 31 patients with skeletal fluorosis. The amount was gradually increased from 300 to 1100 mg/day during a three month period, with one week off each month. The treatment was effective with 50 to 80% improvement.Australian regulatory authorities have banned the sale of Borax as an oral supplement regarding it as poison if taken orally. Since the only testimonies we could source were in reference to oral use of Borax BLANTs have chosen to include references and testimonies to Borax being taken orally,yet we as distributors are obliged to follow Australian regulation and donot endorse its oral use. However, very similar results can be achieved if used as a Bath Salt. Just as Magnesium is well absorbed transdermally [through the skin] so is Borax as this is exactly how it is absorbed in natural boron mineralised waters that could be labelled ‘Miracle Waters’ where folk are reported to be healed of a host of chronic arthritic type conditions.

Borax as a regulator of Calcium-Magnesium Metabolism

About half of the total body magnesium is found in bones and the other halfinsidethe cells of tissues and organs. Only 1% is in the blood, and the kidneys try to keep the levels constant by excreting more or less with the urine.

In contrast, 99% of calcium is in bones, and the rest in the fluidoutsideof cells. Muscles contract when calcium moves into the cells, and they relax when calcium is again pumped out and magnesium moves in. This cellular pump requires much energy to pump calcium out, and if cells are low in energy, then calcium may accumulate inside cells. Low cellular energy may be due to Candida, faulty sugar or fat metabolism, deficiencies, or accumulating metabolic wastes and toxins.

This then leads to only partial relaxation of the muscles with stiffness, a tendency to cramps, and poor blood and lymph circulation. The problem gets worse the more calcium moves from bones into soft tissue. Nerve cells can also accumulate calcium, leading to faulty nerve transmission, in the lens it causes cataracts, hormonal output keeps reducing as endocrine glands increasingly calcify, and all other cells become handicapped in their normal functions. In addition it causes intracellular magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is needed to activate countless enzymes, and a deficiency leads to inefficient and blocked energy production.

A further problem is that excess calcium damages the cell membrane and makes it difficult for nutrients to move in and wastes to move out. When the intracellular calcium level gets too high the cell will die.

Here we can see the importance of boron as a regulator of cell membrane functions, especially in regard to movements of calcium and magnesium. With boron deficiency too much calcium moves into the cell while magnesium cannot move inside to displace it. This is a condition of old age and of the boron-deficiency diseases leading up to it.

For boron to be fully effective in reversing tissue calcification ample magnesium is required. Some doubt whether calcium supplements are needed and beneficial, even in case of osteoporosis as these individuals have plenty of calcium stored in soft tissues where it does not belong, and supplementing boron and magnesium is expected to redeposit this misplaced calcium into bones. The medical focus on a high calcium intake could be regarded as a prescription for accelerated aging.

Borax and Brain function

Borax is reported to improve attention, both short and long term memory, perception, hand-eye coordination, and manual dexterity.

Borax and Gout

Boron is reported to be an effective remedy for gout.

What to expect and Side effects

When supplementing Boron, one way experience improvement within days! This is a functional response to high cellular calcium levels moving out of the cells as a result of Boron, especially together with Magnesium rapidly relaxing muscles. However, with long-standing severe calcifications a large amount of calcium cannot be redistributed in a short time. As Borax mobilises calcified calcium, one may experience a side effect of increased calcium levels in the affected area, especially the hips and shoulders which may be uncomfortable for a considerable time, such as severe cramping and pain, or problems with the blood circulation, or nerve transmission. Nerve-related effects in hands and feet may be numbness, or reduced sensitivity or feeling in the skin. Higher amounts of calcium and fluoride passing through the kidneys may cause temporary kidney pain. Such healing reactions cannot be avoided when aiming for a higher level of health.

Some report a reaction known as Herxheimer reaction which is due to toxin release from a die-off of Candida and mycoplasma. The symptoms of Herxheimer reaction are aggravated pain, swelling or stiffness for a few weeks. Although unpleasant this should be viewed as an excellent indication that your body is on the mend.

If side effects are causing distress or too uncomfortable reduce or temporarily stop borax until the problem subsides. Then gradually resume. Helpful additional measures are a greatly increased fluid intake, using more organic acids such as lemon juice, ascorbic acid or vinegar, and improving lymph flow as with rebounding, walking or inverted positions.
Boron tends to increase the levels of calcium and oestrogen, and lower blood glucose, and levels of vitamin B6 and zinc. Boron's antidote is vitamin B2.

For any serious disease, or if you are unsure about a particular course of action, seek the help of a competent health professional.

Bath or Foot-soak ... How Much to Use

Assuming a bath holds 100 litres of water add from 50-300grms of Borax per warm bath. 300grms per 100litres is equivalent to Boron concentrations in those natural hot springs known as ‘Miracle Waters’! {A large cup is about 300grms}

A foot soak of 15 grams Borax to 5 litres of warm water is an approx equivalent to 300grms per 100litre bath.

Bath at least a few times per week until relief is experienced.



I also have psoriasis, so maybe the soreness in my joints is the psoriatic arthritis creeping in. I thought, after reading about borax I would give it a try. OMG! In one day, the soreness in my knees has vanished! .... Also, my psoriasis seems a lot better.

Another one about toe fungus: He wet his feet and then took a handful (of borax) and rubbed it all over his feet. He said it stopped itching immediately! He was stunned. A few weeks later I asked him how his athletes foot was and he said: oh wow! it hasn't come back! That stuff totally cured it !!!

Another post: I contracted thyroid cancer, the next year adrenal fatigue, then early menopause, the following year uterine prolapse followed by hysterectomy - the following year fibromyalgia and neuropathy. Early Childhood was fluorinated water along with fluoride tablets. I was looking at total disability. I could barely walk and couldn't sleep because of the pain and was throwing up daily from the pain in my back. ... After reading about fluoride I came to understand where all of my problems originated. ... I began the borax detox and within 3 days my symptoms were almost gone.

Rebecca from Ohio wrote: My comment is on the Borax for arthritis. The next day after adding the borax, my knees (where I was having arthritis pains, I'm guessing, I was never diagnosed officially.) began to feel less swollen. It's been about a week and my knees feel about 80% better. For now, I believe it has given my knees a big turnaround in a small amount of time.
