2 ounces of distilled water2 ounces of colloidal silver4 ounces of witch hazel (available at any department store, drug store, or health food store).6-8 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)
Bonus Tips: For increased detoxification, you can add a tbsp. of bentonite clay (available at health food stores) to the above recipe. This will help remove blackkheads, pimples, etc., and pull toxins from your pores. You may have to add a little extra colloidal silver if you choose to add the clay.

Blue Ridge Silver Inc. is a family-owned business located in Boone in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The company was established in 2012 after Steven Griffin, who worked as a mechanical engineer, discovered a way to affordably produce colloidal silver products that were amazingly effective in improving overall health by supporting immune systems. read more...
Below is a collection of experiences, comments and results based on empirical and personal experiences, actual tests, and questions from colloidal silver producers and users. This page deals specifically with our production method and specifically with lab tests of the colloidal silver produced by our generators.
Our home colloidal silver production method produces the highest-quality, stable and effective colloidal silver available. Our test results show this below. When I am questioned about other sites and claims on those sites, I reply to them with comments onthis page.
True silver colloids are products that do not contain any protein or other additives and whose silver content is predominantly in the form of nanometer sized silver particles. The effectiveness of colloidal solutions increases with decreasing particle size. Particle surface area is what determines a colloids ability to react with its environment. Reactivity increases with increasing surface area. Particle surface area can be determined by measuring two important physical properties, namely, particle size and particle concentration. Effectiveness is defined as the ability of the colloid to react with its environment. The higher the surface area, the more reactive the colloid, hence the more effective it is in reacting with its environment.-- www.silver-colloids.com
There are those that say that agitating the water with an air bubbler has no effect on colloidal silver. While we understand that those who espouse this viewpoint are trying to build a case for selling their own, more expensive colloidal silver home production methods, you really need to understand that the simple process of agitating the water during production with an air bubbler does actually in fact produce measurable, testable results as to its efficacy. (Scroll further to view our independent test results.)
We show that this simple, inexpensive home production method will produce for you 1nm to 2nm micro-particle colloidal silver. We've always known that home production produces ionic silver. But agitating the water generates nanoparticle silver: a perfect end result for effectively producing quality colloidal silver at home.
We discovered, along with some other colloidal silver generator producers that "agitating the water" is invaluable to the colloidal silver production process. In fact, learning of the value of agitating the water was the final chapter in developing a very stable, high quality small-particle colloidal silver product at home, for mere pennies per quart.
I had been reading quite a bit about "agitating the water" to reduce the macro-particles often found in production of silver solution, to better stabilize the final product after production, and most importantly to generate a higher colloidal content. In viewing photos of agitated water, it became very apparent to me that all they were doing was pumping air through the water during the production process, thereby keeping up a constant state of agitation.
That led to purchasing a small aquarium pump to agitate the water while the generator was working. I had no idea how radically the end product would so positively change for the better! Whatever you do during colloidal silver production of your own, buy a pump (we offer one that I use every time I make Colloidal Silver). Agitate the water. It makes a huge difference in the quality of your end product.
The jar on the right, containing clearer colloidal silver, remained clear from the beginning, and continues to remain clear (and very effective) over time. (Note: Your colloidal silver does acquire "color" with longer production times. My family prefers a lower ppm product for our needs. If you prefer a higher ppm product that has a color, simply produce your product for a longer period of time.)
Conclusion: Agitating the distilled water during production of colloidal silver without doubt affects the end result of your colloidal silver product. By agitating the water, the colloidal silver end result is one that remains clear and stable over time.
Samples from the jars of colloidal silver produced above were shipped to a university lab to measure particle size. The process is called "TEM" (Transmission Electron Microscopy). You may read about the processhere. * (see note below at the end of this section regarding TEM)
Sample 1 was produced using air pump agitation with the air pump available on this site. This image illustrates the higher number of very small colloidal silver particles, measuring 1nm to 2nm in size. The age of the sample at the time of testing was 21 days old.
SAMPLE 1: The image below (21 days old at the time of testing, which allowed any silver oxide to revert to ionic silver) reflects the particle size that is generated as a result of agitating the water during colloidal silver production. The lab provided a measurement of average nanometer particle size of 1nm to 2nm. (This translates to .0010 to .0020 microns. One micron is 1/25,400 of an inch. The particles produced by our generators are therefore 1/25,400,000 of an inch in size.) These particles are identified by arrows at 200,000x magnification, in a product that was produced 21 days prior. Even smaller particles existed in the sample, along with larger, individual particles (as seen in the photo below). (The scale in the image reads: "10 nm.")
CONCLUSIONS:By agitating the water, you are dramatically altering colloidal silver during production.By agitating the water, you are indeed producing 1nm to 2nm particles in your colloidal silver solution.Even after a waiting period of 21 days, to allow particles to revert to ionic silver, we continue to see a large number of 1nm to 2nm particles in the image of Sample 1. No particles of this size are visible in the image of Sample 2.From the perspective of my and my family's personal use, agitating the water during production creates a highly stable, extremely effective small-particle colloidal silver product.* TEM is in fact the method of choice to adequately measure particle size within the industry. The "science site" publishes claims to the contrary. Again, I refer to thearticle published by Hydrosol, producers of a high-quality colloidal silver product, as they prove through science the errors published by the producers of Mesosilver.
Mainly, it is because some customers have a lot of wide-mouth jars they wish to use in which to storetheir colloidal silver. Others just like the additional "working space" available on a wide-mouth jar lid.Either jar is an option, although the "standard" jar lid continues to be the most popular, and will be shipped to you as the default jar style if you have not made a choice during the shopping process.
"In truth a TDS meter gives a more accurate reading of the purity of the water rather than giving a spot on count of silver colloids. Some of the leading manufacturers of TDS meters agree to this fact although the meters are widely used for counting silver colloids. The leading manufacturers agree that TDS meters are not the perfect tools for measuring the colloid count. On the contrary this is a perfect tool for gauging the impurities present in your distilled water. You will find TDS meters being promoted as effective tools for testing colloidal silver ppm when in truth it does not give you an accurate reading. 2b1af7f3a8
