The Detoxification Benefits of a Hydrogen Peroxide Bath

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Our bodies eliminate toxins through four major organs: the colon (assisted by the liver), kidneys, lungs, and skin. A hydrogen peroxide bath can help to cleanse and purify our skin. A hydrogen peroxide bath can help destroy toxins, organisms, and even pull out the residues left by soap. In other words, it makes one of our major eliminators of toxins-our skin-more effective.

Hydrogen peroxide does all this and is environmentally friendly too, leaving its only by-products: water and oxygen.

The first time you take a hydrogen peroxide bath, be sure to notice the residue left behind after the bath. You just might be amazed!

Supplies Needed:

* 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.

Dry Skin Brushing:

A hydrogen peroxide bath, as well as all bath therapies, are more effective when you utilize dry skin brushing on the entire body. Dry skin brushing removes the layer of dead skin that can block the absorption of energy and nutrients from this bath and also stimulates the blood and lymph fluids to rise to the skin to accept the healing effects of the bath.

How Often?

It is recommended that you use this therapy for a least seven consecutive days, or as recommended by your doctor. Continued use daily, or as needed is fine. Even weekly or monthly bath treatments will provide benefit.


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.

Other substances you can add to this bath:

You can also use sea salt, epsom salts or essential oils, (great for detoxing!) right along with the hydrogen peroxide. I’ve used Epsom salts, essential oils, and herbal infusions for my peroxide bath soaks.

Other Uses:

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.

      YOU’RE A LIAR! Sure, your claim that the body uses it is correct but the rest is garbage. Of course you would never connect the application of peroxide to the body’s use of it because the two are unrelated. The body makes its own and can never and will never use any from skin contact.

      Furthermore, hydrogen peroxide is so laughably ineffective at disinfection that your article was almost taken by me as satire. For anyone that doubts this, look up the enzyme PEROXIDASE. That bubbling on a cut? That’s not microbial death, that’s peroxidase in action, taunting you. It truly does nothing.

      Luckily, this article is complete nonsense. Were it to be true, the writer may very well face criminal charges. Instructing people to destroy the microbial flora on their skin would rapidly lead to infection and likely death through an opportunistic and massively pathogenic/ virulent strain. We live in symbiosis with bacteria. Hell, 9/10ths of your mass is bacterial!! Look it up people.

      @Anonymous, You’re a genius! Hydrogen Peroxide is laughably ineffective as a disinfectant that Asda sells basically 35% hydrogen peroxide under the name, Non-Chlorine Bleach because it’s useless for disinfecting!?! :lol: Makes total sense to me.

      First i’d like to say great & FACTUAL article, well written. I’d also like to say hello to the disinformation/fear mongering agents who claim so cruelly and unusually vehemently that this is BS. Sigh…they may even be the same person as our lovely government loves to cover up cheap and effective cures, who knows and who cares.

      Okay, so I never get sick. I do the whole organic natural thing, no use of Draconian chemicals/pills to heal myself for 3 years now. I DID just get an awful bug about 3 days ago…great way to ring in the new year! I was going nuts with the itching in my nose/sinus/constant sneezing and tried a capful of peroxide mixed with clean water (I use a Zero Water Filter you can get 20% off a Bed Bath Beyond- this wonder beats ALL other filters and costs about $30 and I promise you’ve never tasted cleaner water- delicious) inside a blue baby nose dropper thingy. I dribbled some in each nostril one at a time and then blew my nose. WOW…immediately the itching stopped cause it killed the bacteria- simple science people. Then I was all fired up so I slowly dribbled some in each ear one at a time then tilted my ear into a tissue to empty it…the crackling is fun or i’m just easily amused :roll:

      BOTTOM LINE: Peroxide is cheap, SAFE & it works! I will spray my room down after my cold goes away, this stuff kills everything! I am a huge Kevin Trudeau & Dr. Mercola follower for natural health, check them out. I trust the info cause it always works…go natural. your body will love you (and last longer) for it. Happy 2014 everyone.

      “Supplies Needed:

      * 2 quarts hydrogen peroxide
      * Bath tub”

      Is this a typo? 2 Quarts In metric it is 2.7 liters. You really suggesting to add 2.7liters of H202 35% in and soak in it?
      I’ve seen a recommended amount starting lower – at ¼ cup of 35% peroxide. But usually it is ½ to 1 cup of 35% that is recommended most places iv searched. What you are suggesting is alarmingly higher and I would like to someone to do this on live mice if you have some spare time and report back how they are doing.
