Daily Detox Rituals: Whiter Teeth With Activated Charcoal
Hellooooo Gorgeous! Are you still using whitening gels and those harsh white strips instead of activated charcoal to whiten your teeth?
BABE. HOLD UP. Let me let you in on one of my D.D.R.:
(D.D.R. as in Daily Detox Ritual, in case you didn’t connect the two 😉 )
Activated charcoal has recently been on the rise; we’ve loved it for our face masks for years, recently we started drinking it to detoxify the body and now we can whiten our teeth with it.
This is my FAVORITE way to whiten my teeth and keep them that way. Unlike those white strips there is no issue with teeth sensitivity, no toxins, no synthetic additives, no preservatives, no fluoride, no artificial colors or flavors, and no abrasive baking soda or salt. PLUS it’s extremely affordable. This little 2.75 oz jar contains enough for close to 300 brushes, which if you use it like me – I only brush with it at night and use non-fluoride toothpaste in the morning/afternoon – it will last you quite some time!
*INGREDIENTS: Activated Bamboo Charcoal, Bentonite Clay, Myrrh Gum Powder, Organic Hibiscus Petal Powder, Organic Stevia Leaf Powder, Organic Orris Root Powder, Organic Peppermint Extract and Organic Cinnamon Extract.
I got this particular one from Amazon!
(No, I’m not getting paid for this post; I genuinely love this stuff)
Now the only down side is this can get a little messy if you’re not careful and it will leave a slight stain on your tooth-brush, so I use a separate toothbrush for when I brush with charcoal.. but I mean I’m kind of OCD when it comes to cleanliness so if you feel inclined to use the same tooth-brush then by all means, go ahead babe.
Throw out your old school white strips babes; It’s all about the charcoal now !
PS How cute is this copper toothbrush from QUIP ?! I’m obsessed!
