Chlorophyll in its natural state is found abundantly in nature in plants and green vegetables. After it was discovered that chlorophyll exhibits many of the same properties as hemoglobin, further research concluded that it could be used for many purposes in the human body. Most commercial products contain elements of mint for a pleasurable taste.

Step 1

Add a few drops to water to clean fruits and vegetables, ridding them of pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Exposure to pesticides may cause symptoms as mild as skin irritation or as severe as cancer, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Step 2

Take 1 teaspoon in water twice a day as a natural "deodorant" and detoxing agent for the body. The Linus Pauling Institute reports that chlorophyll has been used for decades as an internal deodorizing agent. Taking liquid chlorophyll daily also helps to strengthen the circulatory system and blood cells.

Step 3

Mix 1 tablespoon with 2 to 3 ounces of water and gargle to combat bad breath and germs in the mouth.

Tip

Be careful when utilizing liquid chlorophyll. It is dark green in color, and the pigment can easily stain clothing or countertops.
