Charcoal Powder - 4oz
Common charcoal is manufactured out of coal, peat, wood, petroleum or even coconut shells. This “Activated charcoal” is made by manufacturers heating common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop internal spaces or pores that allow activated charcoal to trap chemicals. It is for this reason that activated charcoal is often used to absorb toxic substances.
Our Activated Charcoal is derived from Willow Bark.
Here are some uses to consider:
- Remove stains from your teeth by mixing a little with enough water to give it a thick consistency. Brush your teeth gently and wait 3 minutes before rinsing. WARNING: Your teeth will look VERY strange while you're doing it, and it may discolor your toothbrush bristles. It won't hurt anything, though!
- Make a clarifying face mask by adding a teaspoon to warm water. Add a teaspoon of honey and 1-2 drops of essential oil (like frankincense, lavender, etc) and apply a thin layer to your face. Rinse after 5-10 mins.\
- Alleviate gas & bloating by taking 1/4 teaspoon with a full glass of water. Follow with an additional glass of water immediately to help get the charcoal into your system, where it can bind with gas-producing elements.
