Nature’s Perfect Cleanser: Hydrogen Peroxide

You’ve probably heard of hydrogen peroxide and may have even used it to clean cuts and scrapes on your skin, but did you know that it occurs in many natural cycles on Earth?

Hydrogen peroxide is present in rain, snow and mountain streams, and can also be found in nearly every living organism. Our bodies create hydrogen peroxide to help fight infection. White blood cells produce hydrogen peroxide as a first line of defense against bacteria, viruses, yeast, etc. It is also created in plants through the process of photosynthesis.

Being so abundant in our ecosystem, you can see that hydrogen peroxide is Nature’s very own natural cleanser.

Hydrogen peroxide can be used in a wide variety of applications. It is powerful enough to be used as an alternative to harsh chemical cleaners like bleach and ammonia, yet gentle enough to be used as a mouthwash.

What is Hydrogen Peroxide?

Hydrogen peroxide has nearly the same molecular structure as water (H2O).The difference is that it contains an additional atom of oxygen, hence the chemical name H2O2. In the atmosphere hydrogen peroxide is formed after oxygen combines with sunlight and becomes ozone (O3).

As the ozone interacts with water (clouds) hydrogen peroxide is formed. It then comes down in rainwater, cleansing the landscape and oxygenating the soil, lakes and seas. The power of hydrogen peroxide lies in this extra atom of oxygen. Use the power of nature to your advantage.

How to Use Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful disinfectant and cleanser, but is completely non-toxic. After it has done its job the only byproducts are oxygen and water, making it gentle on the environment!Hydrogen peroxide is antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial.

Use it on any surface that you want to remain free of microscopic bad guys, such as: countertops, cutting boards, showers and tubs, in the fridge, etc.

Beyond its traditional uses to treat cuts and abrasions and clean house, hydrogen peroxide has some unexpected benefits, too.

Did you know that it can be used as a gentle facial exfoliator and after-shower body mist to replace the skin’s acid mantle that soap removes? Personal hygiene applications are plentiful: hydrogen peroxide works as an effective ear cleansing solution or a mouthwash for dental health.

In the kitchen it makes an excellent vegetable wash to remove bacteria and can even be used to enhance results when sprouting seeds. Add it to your laundry and even to humidifiers and steamers for increased steam purity.
