    The borax shampoo and soak were very helpful for me in soothing the itchy skin and scalp caused by demodex skin mites. Borax will kill demodex mites. Doctors have recommended borax soaks for years for yeast (fungal) infections.

    The 20 Mule Team Borax powder is a mineral form of Borax that is mined in the US. The box says that it is sodium tetraborate a natural mineral. Borax, also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate, is an important boron compound, a mineral, and a salt of boric acid.

    It has many uses. It is a water softener, laundry booster, and cleaner. It is for external use only. It will not harm you when diluted. It is best to avoid getting it in the eyes.

    I have never had any problems using the borax. Unlike most salts, Borax will not irritate your skin.

    Here is what we use in the US:

    Here is some more information on Borax and its uses:

    I do not know if it is sold in Europe.
