Default Sulfur and MSM

What's the difference between the two?

I'm thinking about making my own growth aide comparable to MTG/BT. I have a lot of msm sitting around the house and was wondering if i could use that instead.

Also, to people who make their own sulfur/oil mix, does it stink?

I don't know about putting msm in shampoo but I take it orally. It's short for methylsulfonylmethane. Good for joints, pain (excellent anti-inflammatory properties), helping to alleviate allergies, and hair growth.

Sulfur is well..... sulfur. lol I tried.

MSM is either a type of sulfur or derived from sulfur. It's definitely closely related to sulfur...

I just don't know if it has the same properties

MSM is promoted as a natural source of sulfur by the supplement and health food industry, suggesting that people are deficient in sulfur intake

there is another thread here that spells out the difference between sulfa, sulfur, sulfate, sulfuric acid, etc and why those, like me, who are allergic to sulfa based drugs can still use sulfur....
