How To Make a Magnesium Sulfate Paste?

Answer: Simply mix a small amount of Epsom Salts with a small amount of water - only a little at first -- and stir until it becomes a paste. It can be applied directly, as a dressing, or part of a poultice. It is typically used as a drawing and drying agent to draw out boils and abscess. The paste should be put onto a dressing then applied, it needs to be changed daily until it draws all the muck out. It will take a while for the head to form, could be a day, could be a few, but it will draw out everything. The paste should not be applied to broken skin.
