Activated Charcoal?!

I have 5 kids. My oldest is 12 and my next oldest is 10. They ALWAYS pronounce charcoal "Car-Coal" and it makes me laugh so much!!!

They are, as am I, captivated by the blackness of this powder. I have heard lots of talk about activated charcoal and have also used Posh's charcoal soap and been happy with it, so I decided that of course I'd like to try it. When the opportunity came to review it (for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest review), I jumped at it.

Then it came and suddenly, I was scared and didn't know what to do with it. Pinterest had a few ideas, but none that I was super excited about. So I let it sit for a while before trying anything with it.

I did have a friend use it for a tummy ache. We followed the instructions and put it in very cold water. She was able to drink a good enough bit of it to sooth her tummy and even said that she'd try it again if her tummy hurt again.

Juliana was willing to be my guinea pig and try it as a teeth whitener. I still haven't had the guts to do it. Here's her video:

I did, however, sort of make some eyeliner/mascara. Unfortunately, I didn't follow the instructions very well and THIS

only looked that good for about 10 minutes. THAT WAS NOT THE CHARCOAL's FAULT. It was way too much coconut oil in the recipe and I'll DEFINITELY try it the right way soon because the color was spectacular!!! #saganofresh
