H2O2 DOES DECOMPOSE; AT ROOM TEMPERATURE IT DECREASES BY <.5% A MONTH
HOW LONG CAN H202 BE STORED? The most important rule to remember is that undiluted H202 is EXTREMELY dangerous to eyes and is fatal if swallowed while still concentrated. Therefore, store H202 in a very safe location and NEVER put it undiluted in an unmarked bottle. Though extremely rare, there have been reports of fatality when H202 in concentrated form was mistake for water.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SHIPPING h2o2 to a friend or other location There are many restrictions on shipping h2o2. This is only a summary and specifics may add additional requirements. If you reshipped h2o2 to a friend or another person, you MUST follow these rules. Please note, other rules may prohibit reshipping.
1. H2o2 may NEVER be sent by air mail, any air transportation except for extremely low concentrations in some instances. Ask us first!
2. There is a limit on the level of concentration that can be shipped by any means.
3. We HIGHLY advise that you do not reship if the bottle has been opened and the seal broken.
4. For safety to the carrier, we highly recommend double sealing the bottle in 2 bags one of which is at least 6 mil thick plastic bags.
6. You can not ship h2o2 of any concentration to any foreign country, Hawaii or Alaska due to restrictions and the strict restriction of no air transportation of h2o2.
7. Do not ship h2o2 to a military base or to a government building.
8. You can not take h2o2 in any concentration on aircraft in personal baggage.
BEFORE SHIPPING OR TRANSPORTING ANY h2o2 product, re-read the above and speak to the shipping company.
H2o2 emergency procedure
1. H2o2 contains no poisons or toxins.
2. If contact with skin, H2o2 it will TEMPORARILY bleach the skin color and will sting, do not panic. No permanent damage is done and color will return in less than one hour; the bleaching is causes by the oxygen. No poison or toxic substance have been absorbed through the skin. If contact with skin, wash off area generously with water or any potable liquid.
3. If contact with eyes, immediately flush eyes generously with water and call your health care provider.
4. If internally swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Drink as much water as possible and contact emergency medical care immediately.
5. Spill clean up? Just wash down with water. H2o2 contains no toxins or contaminants to ground or ground water.
Warnings concerning internal usage
The F.D.A. does not and has not authorized or approved of any medical usage of hydrogen peroxide. You should speak to your licensed medical doctor or qualified healthcare provider before using hydrogen peroxide for any therapeutic usage.
Hydrogen peroxide should NEVER be used for any medical purpose and never ingested or injected into the blood stream unless it is reduced and only by licensed medical doctors who approve of doing so and are who actually administer it and monitor such administration. Even if administered by a licensed medical doctor, putting hydrogen peroxide directly into the blood stream has been highly criticized and poises serious risk potential of injury or death.
You should never inject hydrogen peroxide in any concentration into your blood stream and doing so will result permanent injury or death, nor rely upon general advice by anyone on the benefits of how to do so or promising benefits. Such direct injection should only be administered by an AMA licensed doctor and administered in a VERY diluted form ONLY by that doctor and while being monitored. Hydrogen peroxide at any concentration level should NEVER be used for an eye wash, for cleaning ears or as a nasal spray.
FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE SHOULD NEVER BE USED FOR DIRECT INJECTION INTO THE BLOOD STREAM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE REGARDLESS OF METHOD OR CONCENTRATION LEVEL. There have been reports of death resulting for intravenously putting hydrogen peroxide into the blood stream.
No product offered by us is to be used for direct injection into the blood stream regardless of purpose or concentration, including by licensed medical personnel. For those few AMA licensed doctors who offer such treatment, they use a specific medical grade hydrogen peroxide generally not available to the public and it is very costly in very small volume containers.
There is no established level of safe oral ingesting of hydrogen peroxide, though it has been used in 2% to 3% concentration as mouthwash for decades but then not to be swallowed.
Internal Usage First, please read the warnings and notice at the bottom of this page. Internal consumption of hydrogen peroxide is not approved of by the F.D.A. and is controversial. Excessive or improper usage may cause serious or permanent injury. Second, you should ONLY use 35% FOOD GRADE hydrogen peroxide. Not LESSER concentrations and not unless food grade. If the person/company is offering a lower concentration but also NOT 35%, you should consider it VERY LIKELY they are NOT selling FOOD GRADE regardless of what they advertise or put on the label. THE USAGE LEVEL IS ONLY A GENERAL GUIDELINE FOR SAFE USAGE FOR ADULTS. This is not a health guideline which we strictly may not give. ADDITIONALLY, YOU SHOULD SPEAK TO YOUR LICENSED DOCTOR OR QUALIFIED HEALTHCARE PROVIDER FIRST. We CANNOT provide any guidance usage for health or therapeutic usage.
Usage: 4 to 8 drops per 8 ounces of distilled or filtered water between meals, 2 to 3 times a day, 5 to 6 days a week. You should start at a lower rather than higher level. This is presented as safety material, not health or therapy material. We can not give medical advice. There are numerous materials to read and listen to on the topic for you to consider. We can not endorse any health usage due to various regulations and rules. NEVER consume hydrogen peroxide in concentrated form. It MUST be HIGHLY diluted first! HIGHER LEVEL USAGE: Any higher concentration levels of H202 internal usage should be approached very gradually. Excessive levels can be extremely harmful and even lethal.
WARNING SIGNS OF EXCESSIVE USAGE: H202 has a distinct taste to it. For some it takes getting used to like anything else new. If there is any stinging sensation in the mouth the level is extremely too high. If there is any internal sense of stinging or stomach pain, drink as much water as possible and seek immediately emergency medical attention. Never induce vomiting as this can cause severe lung tissue damage. Occasionally people who use H202 for the first time will report diarrhea. This is not uncommon and should end the same day. Some attribute this to the body flushing out waste materials. Stomach pain, however, is a serious warning sign of excessive concentration and should be taken seriously. If the stomach pain is intense, immediate emergency care is an absolute necessity. If you are gradually increasing levels of H202 consumption across a period of time, warning signs that the levels are becoming excess are a sensation of stomach gas or blood shot eyes. You should discontinue usage for a day or two, and then resume at a lower level of concentration. You need to be aware the FDA has not and does not approve of any medical application or usage of hydrogen peroxide.
PLEASE NOTE: hydrogen peroxide should NEVER be used for any medical purpose and never ingested or injected into the blood stream unless is it GREATLY reduced. You should NEVER inject hydrogen peroxide in any concentration into your blood stream and doing so will result permanent injury or death. Such direct injection should only be administered by an AMA licensed doctor and then it would be administered in a VERY diluted form. Hydrogen peroxide at any concentration level should NEVER be used for a eye wash, for cleaning ears or as a nasal spray.
IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS:
The FDA has not approved of any medical application or usage of hydrogen peroxide.
PLEASE NOTE: Hydrogen peroxide should NEVER be used for any medical purpose and never ingested or injected into the blood stream unless is it GREATLY reduced. You should NEVER inject hydrogen peroxide in any concentration into your blood stream and doing so will result permanent injury or death.

Hydrogen peroxide at any concentration level should NEVER be used for an eye wash, for cleaning ears or as a nasal spray.
There is no established level of safe oral ingesting of hydrogen peroxide, though it has been used in 3% concentration as mouthwash for decades (though not to be swallowed). Any oral consumption of any hydrogen peroxide should only be considered if it is first VERY diluted.
1 drop per 2 ounces of water is a dilution ratio of 1/ 1,800th as there are 300 drops per ounce if 35% is used. This equates to a concentration of approximately 0.02% hydrogen peroxide.
FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE SHOULD NEVER BE USED FOR DIRECT INJECTION INTO THE BLOOD STREAM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE REGARDLESS OF METHOD OR LEVEL OF CONCENTRATION unless supervised and performed by a licensed medical doctor. Doing so yourself will result in permanent injury or death.
There are serious dangers with the misusage of hydrogen peroxide. It should NOT be used as an eye wash, ear wash or nasal spray. Direct injection into the blood stream is so dangerous that this must ONLY be done by an AMA licensed doctor and they use a HIGHLY diluted mixture of hydrogen peroxide and other substances in a process that takes hours. I have personally received AMA licensed doctor administered injection of h2o2 in the past and can not understate that you must NOT do so yourself. Improper injecting of h2o2 directly into the bloodstream will cause permanent and massive injury or death.
Excessive concentrations of oral (drinking consumption) can cause severe stomach damage and other injury. However, this is true of virtually any substance you would ingest, including virtually all over-the-counter medications and even food. Excessive consumption of food is now the 2nd leading cause of death in the USA.
