The use of activated charcoal has become a popular method of teeth whitening, but it should also be noted for it’s effectiveness against bad breath. It is used as a natural remedy to absorb toxins from the body, and has the same affect in the mouth by absorbing many times its body weight in plaque. Activated charcoal, along with baking soda and bentonite clay, eliminates bad breath, balances pH in the mouth, and naturally whitens teeth. Peppermint essential oil leaves behind a fresh, amazingly clean mouth.
NOTE: Even though there are many oral health benefits, Cottontail Company does NOT recommend brushing with this charcoal tooth powder alone as a dental care solution.
Speak with your dental care provider for advice on using charcoal as a supplementary means of achieving your oral health goals.
-Hardwood activated charcoal powder
-Sodium hydrogen carbonate (Baking Soda)

-Pure therapeutic grade peppermint essential oil
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush that you won’t want mind getting stained. Nothing will be wrong with it, but it will be noticeably blackened from here on out. Simply wet your toothbrush with water, dip the head fully into the charcoal powder, remove, and place in your mouth. Do this over the sink: it will be a little messy until you’ve had some practice. I like to start on my tongue, fully covering it with the powder, before I gently brush my teeth for 1 full minute. You will need to rinse thoroughly with water, and brush your tongue, teeth and gums until all the visible powder is removed. Yes, you will look like you have a black hole for a mouth. Don’t worry, it won’t stain your skin or mouth at all. After rinsing completely, your mouth will feel cleaner than it ever has before! I’m always a little surprised by it.
-4 oz in reusable glass flip top jar.
This tooth powder is truly 100% natural with only the natural preservative qualities of the ingredients themselves, and therefore it is best to store in a cool, dry environment out of direct sunlight. Shelf life in favorable conditions ranges from 8-12 months, but use your own judgement if you feel that your product has gone bad. Exposure to hot and humid temperatures may alter the consistency while conditions continue, but will not spoil the product, and the consistency will return to normal when returned to a cooler environment. However if exposed to extreme heat for a prolonged period of time, it may shorten the shelf life by several months. Use clean hands and instruments when handling the product and removing it from the container to prolong the shelf life.
