Try the "Drogerie" instead of the Apotheke.
At the pharmacy, they will sell you "Bittersalz" which is sold at around 5 CHF per 100 g.

At the Drogerie, MagnesiumSulfat is currently selling at 25 CHF per Kg here in Zurich. The price has double in the last 3 years.

Re: Where can I find Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate)?

My experience is to buy online from Vitacost in the USA.

Just put some numbers in the computer...
3x1 lbs. of Aaron Industries Epsom Salts Item No. 715256200028 = $6.87
Shipping to Switzerland = $9.99
Total = $ 16.86

Warning: Don't order a larger package or the Swiss customs will charge you extras. The smaller packages for $9.99 nearly always come through without any charges.
Vitacost at http://www.vitacost.com/
PS I am not American and get no commission LOL

Epsom Salt AND Baking Soda in one stone (online)

Long story short, I have been a read-only-member for a long time and thank you thank you for all of you, for helping me so many times.

But today, I have joined so that I can let you know of my new discovery

http://www.bonneville-shop.ch/

Has
1) Epsom Salt for bath: 1kg = 6.4CHF, 25kg = 49CHF
2) Baking Soda: 250g=CHF 3.90, 1kg=CHF 5.90, 25Kg=CHF 49.00

I'm just ordering 7Kg of Epsom & Baking Soda. They all ship for 9.9CHF.

Isn't it a great price or what???
We don't need food grade (=expensive) for bath, right? And, a big bag of Baking Soda while you are at it.

Enjoy!

Re: Where can I find Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate)?

Depending on where you live in Switzerland, you can have them send this to an address on the german border and go pick it up there. Like

EPS - Europaketshop
http://www.europaketshop.ch/index.ph...fenburg‎

It's perfectly legal, you might need to declare whatever you order and pay MWST, but otherwise that should work.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

Re: Where can I find Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate)?

You buy it everywhere in the UK very cheaply, supermarkets stock it for £2 per 500g...
All health stores stock it too so if you are really deep try ordering it online from the UK!
You say its a gift you can avoid heavy import taxes too! ;-)

Re: Where can I find Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate)?

Hi.
I made the same question here in 2003.

Meanwhile prices look like this:
25kg for 89SFr. http://www.kaia.ch/p/7/bonneville-bittersalz-25kg
and 1kg for about 10 SFr.

Regards.

Re: Where can I find Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate)?

When Bonneville became Kaia the Epsom Salts price almost doubled. I used to buy 25kg for CHF 49.40 from Bonneville in 2014 and like other posters mention the exact same product is now CHF 89.90. It's still the cheapest I have found but I'm looking for alternative suppliers out of principle.

Re: Where can I find Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate)?

For all of you who do salt baths, the best option by far is to buy in Germany and get it delivered to the boarder.

Faey mentioned Europaketshop, but there are others. I used swisspaket.ch, they have the best prices for my needs.

And where to buy the salts? Try amazon.de, there they have, for example:

- Bittersalz 1 kg, TOP Pharma Qualität - CHF 5.79 + 4.17 shipping. Here the link.

But the very best is to buy a 25Kg sack from Salz Schwarzmann. I was searching for almost 3 hours now and no one can beat they prices! See:

- Bittersalz 25Kg - 22.80 Euro.
- Dead sea salt 25Kg - 19.90 euro.
- And much more ...

The shipping is around 10 to 20 euros, depending on how much you order.

Even if you live away from the boarder, it may be worth it a trip there just for this, you can even combine it with a nice walk in a German city.
