The balanced equation is:

Sodium Peroxide + Hydrocloric acid = Common Salt + Water + Sodium Chlorate
#3Na_2O_2 + 6HCl = 5NaCl + 3H_2O + NaClO_3#

Sodium Chlorate, mixed with other is found basically in any weedkiller as it is a herbicide.

It has other interesting properties which can get you into a pickle with Law Enforcement agencies, so be warned, whoever, where ever you are.
