Activated Charcoal Toothpaste Recipe

I recommend smearing the toothpaste on your teeth (instead of brushing with it) and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes while you go about your morning routine. This way you’ll give the charcoal time to come in contact with, and bind to the stains. Rinse away or gently brush to remove the paste.

    Recipe Notes

    Storage & How to Use

    Keep out only what you’ll use within 5-7 days and store the rest in the fridge.  The Activated Charcoal Toothpaste is made from real food ingredients and therefore doesn’t contain any preservatives.  Keeping it in the fridge will extend its shelf life, but don’t expect it to last more than a month. Use your senses to determine if you need to toss it and create a fresh batch.  Also, the temperature and humidity of where you live (as well as your bathroom, where you store the paste) will determine how long the toothpaste lasts.

    Consider discarding used toothpaste in the trash to avoid clogging sink pipes, as the coconut oil can leave a residue over time.
