NEW to The Apothecary at American Farm and Larder: Activated Charcoal Toothpaste
Ingredients: Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Sesame Oil, Organic Baking Soda, Activated Charcoal, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Looking to whiten your teeth naturally? Activated Charcoal lifts stains without sensitivity. This toothpaste is made with ingredients that foster a healthy mouth and brighter smile!
Activated charcoal is made specifically for medicinal use and designed to be extremely porous. These pores allow the charcoal to absorb and trap impurities. For this reason, it’s actually used in hospitals to treat poisonings. This also makes activated charcoal a must-have natural remedy that belongs in every holistic medicine cabinet. Not only is it incredibly handy for those times when your delicious dinner out leaves you bloated and gassy but it also helps to keep pores clear and teeth white. When you apply activated charcoal to your teeth, it draws away impurities, gently lifting stains away. This simple toothpaste includes other ingredients that naturally improve oral health and whiten teeth: * Coconut and sesame seed oil: commonly used for oil pulling, these oils bind to bacteria in the mouth which then get spit out along with the oil *Peppermint essential oil: leaves breath fresh while also helping minimize bacteria *Baking soda: neutralizes odor and helps gently polish stains away I have not experienced any problem with discoloration (only whiter teeth) but avoid crowns, caps, or porcelain veneers when using this paste. I use this toothpaste at least twice a day but if you feel the baking soda is too abrasive, I recommend using it no more than twice a week. Charcoal can get stuck between your teeth so, after you brush your teeth, give them a once over with a clean brush.
