Colloidal silver is a traditional remedy that has been used successfully for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, including flu, skin rashes, MRSA, sinus infections and wounds.
It was widely used in hospitals before antibiotics were invented. My husband Dr Alex tells me it’s still being used in bandage wounds today.
Colloidal silver is tiny particles of silver suspended in water. A solid suspended through a liquid base is known in chemistry as a colloid.
It’s one of my TOP FIRST AID HOME REMEDIES
It’s a fabulous first aid remedy to have on hand as it has many amazing uses…..
We personally use it these ways….
Topically – Spritzed directly onto burns, cuts and grazes. Great for all those scrapes kids get, as it doesn’t sting (unlike some antibacterial wipes), helps them heal quickly and prevents them from getting infected.
Throat and mouth gargle – dilute 1 tsp in a small cup of water and use as a gargle to soothe a sore throat, or as a mouth wash to prevent tooth cavities.
Sicky eye wash – as a contact lens wearer I find this fantastic! I use it at the first sign of a sticky eye on myself or my children. Put on cotton wool and wipe, or add to warm salt water for an eye bath soak.
Facial toner – with it’s antibacterial properties colloidal silver it’s great for treating an acne breakout. Spritz on the face and allow to dry.
Internally, it’s also antibacterial and antiviral. So when my children have an illness I give them 1tsp a day in conjunction with my strategy to Fight Infections with the 3 F’s! Plus plenty of nourishing Chicken Soup.
Here are the many documented uses…..

- Bad Breath
- Cold Sores
- Cuts and grazes
- Ear infections
- Gum Disease
- Insect Bites
- Nappy Rash and skin infections
- Throat Infections
