Thanks!
I've been adding between 1/4 and 1/2 tsp of honey or agave. I can handle a little more of the agave than the honey it seems. I add it right after I strain the seeds out, while it's still really hot, and whisk it all together.

And I usually add the mag sulfate to the water when I boil the seeds. I found it's less drying (for my hair at least) than if I add it to the gel after I strain it.
