This is a powder you can use right on you wet toothbrush.
When I took off the lid it looks like this:
It's an inner lid that pops off easily. The scraper is just meant to put the charcoal on your toothbrush. The only downfall of charcoal is that it can be messy. It's messy when I take this inner lid off, and I get black speckles here and there from brushing. Speckles happen with any toothpaste, but it's more noticeable when you're brushing with something black.
It's a great natural cleaner. It cleans off tea and coffee. With whiteners I always worry about the enamel of my teeth going bye bye. Not with charcoal. I've been using charcoal tooth cleaners for a few years, and I haven't had one cavity. Why? Because it cleans.
You can use this charcoal powder on a wet toothbrush. It will do its job. If it seems too strange, you can make a paste. I used:
- 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
- 1 Tablespoon of Charcoal Powder
- 5 Drops of Essential Oil (I prefer orange, lemon or peppermint)
- 7 Drops of Liquid Stevia
There is no need to worry about using an essential oil that can swallowed. You're spitting it out anyhow.
$15, but on sale for $12.50 with Prime. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way!
I notice some people cringe when I tell them about using charcoal on my teeth. Have you ever used charcoal to clean your teeth?
