Does any one know where in Los Angeles I can find the 35% Peroxide solution? I have ideas but would prefer to find it in one trip. Instead of bouncing around from shop to shop. LA is a big place. Or if I can get it online here in the US that would be okay too. Thanks.

To anyone looking for Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in Orange County, near Los Angeles, there is a small health food store in Garden Grove, CA at the intersection of Chapman Ave and Brookhurst St that sells it. The best place I have found to purchase it locally is call The Living Temple, in Huntington Beach, CA. Its a small health and nutrition store that has it for a very reasonable price, along with a lot of other awesome products. The Living Temple is located off the 4O5 freeway on Goldenwest St and Bolsa Ave.

Looking for local puchase site 35% H202 food grade

I had the same problem, where to find 35% h202. I stopped into a farm supply store, and only noticed the 3% H2O2 on the shelves. (this particular store carries medicines, supplies for cattle, horese, sheep etc.) On a whim, because of H2O2 desinfectant qualities, I asked the clerk at the order desk. Apparently it is kept in the back of the store in special containers (caustic). I was only able to purchase it in a specialized 4 liter container. Hope this leads you in the right direction.

I am also trying to find hydrogen peroxide in a SMALL quantity, and do not wish to pay 50% shipping charges. I tried diff. stores in Escondido, but found nothing. Did you ever find it?

Where to buy 35% Food Grade H2o2 in Hawaii:

Aloha Friends, Can anyone tell me where to buy 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in Hawaii--specifically on Oahu? No one will ship this to Hawaii due to strict shipping guidelines. Also, can't find a health food store which carries this. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Can anyone tell me where I can buy food grade peroxide in Northern Nevada (Carson or Reno)? I know I can order it from, but I would like to know if there is a store in this area that carries it. Thanks for your help.

I have just moved from south Texas to Bonham, Tx, and don't know where I can purchase and pick up large quanities of 35% food grade Hydrogen peroxide. I have search the Internet but to no avail. I thought perhaps you might tell me how I could obtain the address of the nearest location where I can purchase this. Thank you so much, John Carr

Hi, I have been dealing with for about a year now. They ship it all over world and are always great on the phone. Very helpful people.

I have confirmed for myself as others have in these posts that the family dollar hydrogen peroxide contains no stabilizers. It is produced by Aaron Industries who has never used stabilizers. They sell the 16 oz for less than a dollar. Enjoy!

Thanks! I found the Walgreen's brand that are sold separate have the stablizers, but the ones that they sell that are a package of two, DO NOT have the stabilizers. I purchased mine yesterday.

Hello, Can someone tell me if the 3% hydrogen peroxide they're getting from Walmart is okay for internal use? Thank you!

No Laura. If you read the ingredents. The Wal-Mart brand says it is stablized ( Meaning stablizers are in it ). Family Dollar is stablizer free, I have been using Family Dollar brand for cleaning produce. You can always dilute 35% food grade down to 3% if you can't find a Family Dollar. Google Aaron indutries and see where their brands are sold.

To Laura from Birch Run, Mi. You need to just read the ingredients. At one Walmart the peroxide had stabilizers in it. So I checked at a different Walmart and it had peroxide with no stabilizers included.

Is the 3% hydrogen peroxide, stabilizer-free, found at Walmart or Family Dollar, okay for internal use? Or, is it for external use only, such as washing produce? Is the stabilizer-free Aaron Industry 3% hydrogen peroxide for external use only? I'm sorry I still am not sure, and thank you.

Hello Everybody! I was reading on the site and I found an old post of 2008 mentioning that Aaron industy had a hydrogen peroxide 3% without stabilizers sold at Walmart. I don't know about then, but now they told me by phone that their bulk source put a stabilizer and the source refuses to list it under the trade secret act. So here you are; even when it's not listed it is there!!! Maybe we should update the old post to not be misleading. Peace to all, take good care of yourself and those around you!

Isabelle fr. Garden Grove, CA - Thank you for posting your 7/27/10 update on Aaron Industry's H2O2 and the added stabilizer from their bulk source. I'm so disappointed since I bought 2 - 32 oz bottles for use in an oral rinse recipe, but hoped I'd be able to use it for internal use.

Maybe there should be a warning about this, in case someone doesn't read the entire thread to your post.

Hi, I found food grade hydrogen peroxide 12% strength on I think I paid under $30 for two bottles including shipping. That was at least one year ago and I am still using out of the first bottle.

I told my health food store about this product when I saw they didn't carry it and now they do. So, you can also check in at your local hfs and ask them to order it for you.

I have purchased H2O2 from twice now, and have received my order in four or five days each time.
I have no connection to the company, just a very happy customer.

To the person in Las Angeles looking for 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide, I recommend Clark's Nutritional Store in Loma Linda, this is where I purchase my last supply of it. I hope you do know that you need to dilute this stuff with distilled water, in sterile plastic or glass containers,preferably down to a 1% concentration for internal use.

I ordered Guardian of Eden supplies (H202, sea salt, hot tub sanitizer) on Saturday and received them Wednesday. Very prompt service and a pleasure to deal with! I will not hesitate to use this company again.

Buying 35% H2O2 in the US

I purchased years ago from the Garden of Eden folks and was happy with the products. Twice, however, within the last year and a half, I purchased a quantity of H2O2 and it arrived badly degraded. Diluting it down to 3% in the recommended way produced a product with no H2O2 taste. I emailed them to ask them to send fresher H2O2 and never heard from them. Months later, I figured I'd give them another try and ordered a smaller quantity and it was also badly degraded when I received it. I emailed again and never received a response from them.

I recently ordered a 6% food grade H2O2 solution which can be stored almost indefinitely without degradation from Dancing Algae. The H2O2 I received was a strong, active H2O2.

I wonder how many people who have ordered from DFWX are receiving and using degraded H2O2. Active "young" H2O2 has a very strong bleachy taste even when diluted to 3% and added to water. If yours doesn't taste yukky, then it may be old H202.

If you are looking for food grade hydrogen peroxide in the Seattle area, you can go to Green Earth in Renton. They always keep it in stock there!

I ordered hydrogen peroxide from GOE, 8/23/07, received it today, 8/29/07. Pretty cool. Dennis in Seattle, should contact Paypal and get his dinero back. Me, I'm getting ready to use it, after I cut it. Hopefully, good news follows. Oh yeah, I got two eyedropper bottles at the same time. ED

Just to let your readers know... It has now been over 7 weeks since I ordered some 35% food grade H2O2 from the Guardian Of Eden people ( and still haven't received my order. Luckily I paid via PayPal, so hopefully it will be easy to get a refund.

EC: Per feedback from a few of our readers, if you decide to buy food grade from, it seems to take 3-4 weeks for delivery and they won't respond to your emails! We guess selling food grade H202 is a touchy subject, especially if the FDA is at your back.

Posted by Dan (Seattle, USA) on 07/06/2007

It is true... the 3% H2O2 sold by Walmart manufactured by Aaron Industries Inc., South Carolina is, indeed, made without stabilizers confirmed by a response from the company. The base is purified water only.

I've read through all the posts on H202 and have been searching for a good source of it locally. This brand (Aaron) has been mentioned several times with conflicting info on whether it is safe or not. So, I wrote to the company today to ask and this is their reply:

Aaron Industries, Inc. Manufactures 3% Hydrogen Peroxide by diluting a concentrated solution of Hydrogen Peroxide with purified water. Aaron Industries does not add stabilizers to the Hydrogen Peroxide solution. However, the supplier of our concentrated Hydrogen Peroxide solution has stated that their product contains stabilizers. In the 3% Solution, the amount of stabilizers in the product is less than 30 parts per million. The amount of stabilizers in the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide solution is very, very low.

Our Hydrogen Peroxide is not Food Grade, it is USP grade.

I hope this answers your questions.

Well, it does, sort of. Now I'm left wondering exactly what those stabilizers are and whether at 30ppm, they're safe to ingest. Probably not but I'm interested in other people's thoughts on the matter.

Guess it's good enough to wash veggies with and to use as a mouth rinse though.

re: Where to get pure 30% H202: UnitedNuclear.Com out of Abq NM. I use to live right down the street from them. It's an AWESOME website where you can obtain just about every element on the periodic table...including uranium,...really.

I have read that the hydrogen peroxide used in swimming pools is actually food grade, and that you can order it from swimming pool suppliers, therefore. I use Oxy-Klenz concentrate, food grade 35% H2O2, distributed by M&A distributors in Atlanta, GA 404.634.8881. Freezer storage is recommended, but it must be at least refrigerated. I used to know someone whose breast cancer was cured who regularly bathed in a solution of this.

Comment dating 5/2/2007 from Sara in Atlanta, GA regarding knowing someone whose breast cancer was cured when bathing regularly in a solution of this. Does Sara know the concentration or measurement of peroxide to water ratio? Also, how long did it take for her friend to see any results? Would greatly appreciate your response.
