How to Use Activated Charcoal Powder

Even though activated charcoal has been used since 1550 BC in ancient Egypt, it is still a great compound that can improve your life in a natural way!

Uses for Activated Charcoal Powder

  • Detox

Using activated charcoal has been an old folk remedy to cure hangovers for centuries but it is also a great way to detoxify your body.  To use, mix 1-2 teaspoons with 8oz of water and drink. Due to its intense detoxifying effects, it is important to stay hydrated and drink extra water after you ingest it.

  • Teeth Whitening

Brushing your teeth with a small amount (1/2 teaspoon) of activated charcoal once a week can help freshen your mouth, prevent cavities and even whiten your teeth without the use of harsh whitening agents such as fluoride.


  • Exfoliant

Using activated charcoal as a facial cleanser or body exfoliant is a great way to remove sweat, dirt and make up from your pores in a natural way. Simply add the charcoal powder to a naturally based soap on a washcloth and scrub the grime away!

Always check with your medical professional before starting or stopping any product, substance or treatment. This information should not be used to diagnose, treat or manage any condition.. Activated charcoal may also reduce absorption so do not use it at the same time as you take your vitamins, supplements or medications.
