Hydroponic stores have food grade 35 percent hydrogen peroxide. For 21 years havent been to dentist until today. No cavaties. I believe it's because I healed with the hydrogen peroxide mouth wash I make.

I got "35%" from nightingale pharmacy in south lake, after using it or a few weeks and having no improvements, I put 1 drop on my skin, knowing it should oxidize, nothing at all. So I ordered H2O2 test strips, and after testing a diluted solution I've determined I was sold 3% I'll be heading back to nightingales and demanding they refund my money. Will be trying a supplier on eBay.

I got 35% from Nightingales Pharmacy, South Lake. Ask Bret, the pharmacist. If you explain what you want to do, he will make it for you in 10 minutes.

Hi elric from Rondebosch. I too reside in the Southern Suburbs, and I was wondering where I can purchase Hydrogen Peroxide 3%

My grandma told me about clove oil for tooth pain. Dentists used it long ago, and it really works. First it is an anaesthetic, it numbs the tooth and surrounding area. It is also an antiseptic, killing the bacteria in the mouth and helping prevent plaque. I just dab it on with a cotton wool bud and it works in a minute or two.
I also use hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash. I am prone to cavities, so I make sure there is no food remaining between teeth after each meal. I have been using h2o2 for a couple of years now, and haven't needed to see the dentist since starting to use it.

I had really bad toothache from a cavity. Got some clove oil from my health food store, and applied it directly to the tooth with a cotton wool tip. There was an immediate reduction in pain, and it remained soothed for hours. I feel the infection was also healing. I did this three times a day for a couple of days, and the toothache was gone. The other thing I did was rinse my mouth with hydrogen peroxide (6 drops 3% in half a glass of water) after each meal, and then spat it out. And I chewed on raw garlic, which I feel reduced the infection. Thank you - these remedies really work

In a one-mouthful-size shot glass, mix half 3% hydrogen peroxide, and half clean water. Use this as a mouth rinse, swish it around the painful tooth, and hold it against the tooth as long as you can. Do not swallow - this is a strong rinse! An alternative is to wet a cotton wool bud with 3% hydrogen peroxide and put it in the cavity or crack on the infected tooth. In a few minutes the pain will reduce. It needs a minimum of several minutes to penetrate; wet the bud several times to keep applying it to the tooth
