Who doesn't want whiter teeth? Whiter teeth without sensitivity and a chunk of your change? Yes, please! Black and Whitening Toothpaste packs a punch, you'll get whiter teeth and a crazy clean mouth by adding activated coconut charcoal and Peppermint Essential Oil to the anti-dentist DIY toothpaste that I just love, love, LOVE. This paste is easy to make but beware, there is a learning curve to using black paste - it can get messy. Stick with me, I'll share a few tips at the end to keep things tidy, the results are worth the extra steps.
Just a few facts about activated charcoal -
This type of charcoal is not the same as the everyday charcoal from your barbecue in the backyard, activated coconut charcoal is designed for wellness and very effective at binding to those teeth staining culprits - plaque, coffee and wine stains.
  • whitens teeth
  • improves gum health
  • attracts stains and toxins
  • totally safe and beneficial should you ingest some activated coconut charcoal while using Black and Whitening Toothpaste

    You may have seen recipes online for an activated charcoal toothpaste but mine is a bit different. I go lighter on the activated coconut charcoal, blend it (carefully) with a readymade natural toothpaste and add a few drops of an essential oil like Peppermint, it's minty fresh and anti-microbial.  I prefer an all in one whitening/cleaning toothpaste that's effective and affordable that I can use 2 to 3x a week. I alternate with the anti-dentist DIY Toothpaste found here

    I suggest blending up 2 oz of Black and Whitening Toothpaste at a time and storing in an empty Camp Wander Salve Jar, I prefer glass over plastic whenever possible especially when essential oils are involved. You could also use a 4 oz mason jar or even a clean baby food jar, simply adjust amounts accordingly. 

    Tips & Tricks to keep the splatters to a minimum -
    • use Black and Whitening Toothpaste during a shower
    • carefully spit toothpaste close to the drain to avoid splashing (shower or sink)
    • rinse your mouth out several times, your teeth will feel SO CLEAN
    • rinse toothbrush and smile at yourself in the mirror!
      Lastly, be careful...activated charcoal can stain grout and fabrics.

      I heard this but I’ve also read that because glycerin is water soluble, saliva or any intake of liquid (water etc) would wash any leftover residue of organic glycerin that might be left behind. In the end, it’s personal choice.

      Thank you! But I have a question, I’ve done some research awhile back regarding glycerin in the toothpaste, and found out that glycerin prevents tooth remineralization by coating the tooth and not allowing saliva deposit minerals and calcium. Have you ever heard that? Any ideas? Dr. Bronners toothpaste you are using here got glycerin. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Again, thanx for the article, I’ll be trying this out!! )))

      I have crowns and have had no issues whatsoever.

      Is activated charcoal safe for use with dental crowns (or can it stain them)?
