Whether you’re looking for a supplement to help ease a bloated stomach or an itchy scalp, or simply seeking a natural beauty product to clear up your skin, the activated charcoal powder could be just the thing you need.
Here are a few examples of how to use it:
Brush your teeth with activated charcoal powder a couple of days a week and you’ll have a brighter smile.
Mix 1-2 teaspoon of activated charcoal powder with some bentonite clay and smear on your face and leave it to dry before scrubbing off. This will help pull out microparticles, such as dirt, dust, chemicals, toxins, and bacteria under your skin, making it clean and spotless.
When used on your hair, activated charcoal can draw out oil, dirt and toxins, just like it does for your skin. Massage 1/2 teaspoon of activated charcoal powder into dry scalp and leave for 15 minutes before rinsing off with water.
Activated charcoal is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, therefore can be used for wounds cleaning. Mix a little charcoal powder with water and apply as a paste, then removing with a damp, clean cloth.
Mix 1/2 tsp with a glass of water and drink at 30 minutes before and after each meal. The activated charcoal will absorb the bacteria in the intestines and can relieve bloating, discomfort and flatulence.
