Activated Charcoal 100g

£6.95

Activated charcoal derived from the heating of coconut husks has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It has the incredible power of binding toxins and chemicals and can be used externally and internally. We add it to water to detox, help soothe stomach issues, sickness and bloating whilst also using it to brush our teeth to whiten them naturally! Mix it into a paste too for a cleansing face mask!

H O W  T O  U S E

Drink it up: Mix 1 teaspoon of charcoal in a glass of water, stir well and drink. Add lemon or lime for a refreshing mix!

Paint it on: Charcoal is a really effective face mask helping to draw out toxins and preventing breakouts! Mix up half a teaspoon with a little water to create a paste, add more charcoal and water if needed depending on your desired consistency, but you want it paste-y, not runny! Leave on for about 15 minutes or until dry and then wash it off – in the bath or shower is usually the best way and then continue with your normal skin care routine. We’d recommend coconut oil as our go-to moisturiser.

Brush it off: Yup. Who would have thought that this black stuff could make your pearly whites, whiter? Charcoal draws out impurities naturally and safely helping to rid your teeth of stains. Add toothpaste to your brush as normal and then dip the brush in the charcoal, coating the toothpaste with charcoal and then brush as normal. Repeat twice a day, every day for at least 2 weeks and then show off that SMILE.

Charcoal binds toxins and chemicals, so if you are taking medication be sure to NOT consume charcoal within a 2 hour period of doing so. Just in case.

Also, charcoal can SOMETIMES be a little messy, but it wipes off easily so nothing to worry about. Honest.
