I don't know the answer. I suspect it is not safe but I wonder why you want to do this? A good person to ask would be your pharmacist.

Type in "borax" on Wikipedia and read all about it.

I just read a recipe to help improve psoriasis and it says to add a pinch of borax. I was wondering the same thing... is it safe? Not sure. You're asking if it's safe to add a pinch, if I find out more, I'll let ya know :)
