Our bodies eliminate toxins through four major organs: the colon (assisted by the liver), kidneys, lungs, and skin. Hydrogen peroxide baths help to cleanse and purify our skin.
Hydrogen peroxide destroys toxins, organisms, and even pulls out the residues left by soap. In other words, it makes one of our major eliminators of toxins – our skin – more effective. (Read more about the Health Benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide)
Hydrogen peroxide does all this and is environmentally friendly too, leaving its only by-products: water and oxygen.
The first time you bathe with hydrogen peroxide, be sure to notice the residue left behind after the bath. You just might be amazed!
* 2 quarts hydrogen peroxide
* Bath tub
Pour 1 quart hydrogen peroxide into a hot bath making sure to mix it well to avoid burning your skin. Be careful not to get any bath water in your eyes. Immerse yourself into the water and wait 5 minutes.
If there is no reaction to your skin, add the second quart and stir well. Relax and soak for 20 to 25 minutes.
If irritation occurs, rinse yourself off with clear water immediately. You may want to try again using 1 pint hydrogen peroxide. Women with vaginitis often experience temporary irritation and should begin with the lower dose. Always use caution when exiting a tub. Lightheadedness may occur.
Hydrogen peroxide (3%) is excellent as a facial toner and as a mouthwash.
If you suffer from athlete’s foot, try a nightly foot soak in 3% hydrogen peroxide until the condition clears.
