H2O2 – Many Uses of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

21 Jan

H2O2 - Hydrogen PeroxideAfter 20 something years of using food grade Hydrogen Peroxide, we are still constantly amazed over its many uses…

Where to buy food grade H2O2
Garden of Eden

Store food grade H2O2 in a labeled UV protected bottle and place in a cool, dark, and safe place away from pets and children. H2O2 reduces in strength less than 1/2 of 1% per month when stored in a refrigerator (but not in a freezer!).

To make a 3% Solution, mix 1 oz. of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide with 11 oz. of Distilled Water.

Some of the many uses of food grade Hydrogen Peroxide


  • Sprouting Seeds: Add 1 ounce of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide into 1 pint of water and soak the seeds overnight. Add the SAME amount of Hydrogen Peroxide when you rinse the seeds. (Some people have reported 3/4 inch Sprouts in 24 hours!)
  • Plants & Flowers: Add 1 oz. of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in 1 quart of water to water or mist plants. (This will enhance the growing environment)
  • Insecticide Spray: Add 8 ounces white sugar and 4 – 8 ounces 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to 1 gallon of water.

Food and Water Storage

  • Salad: Add 1 Tbsp. of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to 1/2 cup of water and spray the top of the salad before covering and refrigerating.
  • Vegetable Soak: Add 1/4 cup of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide into a gallon of cold water. Soak light/thin vegetables (Lettuce, etc.) for 20 minutes. For thicker skinned vegetables (like Cucumbers) for 30 minutes. Drain and dry (they’ll keep longer). If time is an issue, you can spray vegetables with straight 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, let stand for a couple of minutes, rinse and dry.
  • Milk: Add 2 drops of 35% Hydrogen Peroxide (full strength) per gallon of milk. This extends the expiration date considerably (works great for us!).
  • Water Storage (For two months or more): Add 30-50 drops of 35% Hydrogen Peroxide in 1 gallon of water.

Cleaning House

  • Sparkly Clean Glassware: Add 2 oz. of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to your regular dishwasher washing formula.
  • Kitchen: Keep a Spray Bottle of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in the kitchen. Use it to wipe clean counter tops, inside your refrigerator and appliances.
  • Washing/Laundry: Add 8 oz. of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to your wash instead of Bleach .

Health and Hygiene

  • Bath: Add 1/2 to 1 pint of 35% Hydrogen Peroxide to a full bathtub. ( Try not to use this close to your bedtime as the increased oxygen absorption may keep you awake.)
  • Mouth and Teeth: Add enough 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to baking soda to make a toothpaste. Use 3% Hydrogen Peroxide as a mouthwash.
  • Humidifiers/Steamers: Use 1 pint of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to 1 gallon of water.

Wheatgrass Tonic

4 May

Grow Wheatgrass for Health and Wellbeing Are you feeling tired or depressed?

Fresh wheatgrass, vegetables and special spices help you maintain a healthy body and mind. The following health drink is easy to make, and it is guaranteed to give you a liquid buzz!
You need a blender.

Wheatgrass Energy Tonic (serves 4-6)

1 tray wheatgrass(A5 size)cut down to the roots and washed
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 small beetroot and leaves
1 spinach leaf
1 small carrot
1 stalk celery
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 chunk ginger, peeled and chopped
2 pints cold water Raw honey, sesame seeds, cumin and cinnamon powder are obtainable at health food shops.

Wash the vegetables.
Blend together all the above ingredients and strain into a jug.
If this is the first time you are drinking wheatgrass juice, limit your intake to 1/8 of a tray of wheatgrass.
Increase your intake gradually.

How much juice to take

As with any health regime, it is important to begin and to proceed with caution. Start off with 1/8 tray of freshly juiced wheatgrass. This is about an ounce.

Wheatgrass can be expressed in a wheatgrass juicer, or the grass can be blended in a liquidizer with purified water (raw honey, herbs, etc. are optional) and strained to make a refreshing drink. Strain the liquid and serve immediately. Left-over juice can be refrigerated for about 12 hours or deep frozen.

Ideally, it is best to drink the juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It takes fast-acting wheatgrass juice just 20 minutes to be assimilated into the system and to start its process of breaking down old mucus and toxins. Brimming with natural enzymes, chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals and vitamins, wheatgrass is the perfect, complete whole-food.

It will compensate for nutritional deficiencies, naturally, and add vigour to your step.
