Magnesium sulfate (7)
Hydrated magnesium sulphate known as bitter salt, English salt, epsomite or Epsom salt is a compound having a number of valuable properties.
It is presented as an odorless crystal. It reminds us well of the famous kitchen salt, but in taste the magnesium sulphate is not salty, but bitter. Hence its name - bitter salt. Salt from Epsom was formerly mined in England in Epsom - hence the name.
We sell it in pure form in kilogram packages.
