Activated charcoal is the normal charcoal that you know… yes that one so you don’t need to go buy if there is a woman who sells some in your area. You just need to grind it into powder. Dassor!

Whitens teeth

In recent times people have found out about this benefit and are really exploring it. Activated charcoal helps whiten teeth while promoting good oral health by changing the pH balance in the mouth, helping prevent cavities, bad breath and gum disease. Wet a toothbrush and dip into powdered activated charcoal. Brush teeth as normal, paying special attention to areas showing the most staining. Leave it on for about three minutes and then sip a bit of water, swish through your mouth thoroughly and spit it out.

Deodorant

Charcoal may absorb smells and harmful gases, making it ideal as an underarm, shoe, and refrigerator deodorant.

Skincare

Activated charcoal can help draw microparticles, such as dirt, dust, chemicals, toxins, and bacteria, to the surface of the skin, to make removing them easier. It’s effective at treating acne and relieving discomfort from insect bites, rashes from poison ivy or poison oak, and snake bites.

Diarrhoea

It is an effective absorbent in overdoses and poisonings, it follows that some people might propose activated charcoal as a treatment for diarrhoea.

Anti-ageing

Taking in prescribed amounts of charcoal helps prevent cellular damage to kidneys and liver, as well as supporting healthy adrenal glands. It’s necessary to cleanse toxins and chemicals routinely from the body by the ingestion of it.

Water filtration

People have long used activated charcoal as a natural water filter. Just as it does in the intestines and stomach, activated charcoal can absorb a number of toxins, drugs, viruses, bacteria, fungus, and chemicals found in water.
