Using Activated Charcoal for Teeth Whitening

Get a pearly white smile by using activated charcoal for teeth whitening

Everyone wants a sparkling white smile, but with the foods we eat and the beverages we drink it can be hard to keep your teeth looking their brightest.

There are a lot of natural ways to achieve a whiter smile. Regular brushing, flossing and visits to your dentist all help, as well as avoiding smoking, which can cause teeth to yellow.

Certain foods and drinks can also contribute to teeth staining such as:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Berries
  • And tomato sauce

Avoiding or brushing after eating or drinking these foods can help to reduce visible staining on your teeth.

Other methods like brushing with baking soda, or doing oil pulling are easy and affordable ways to help whiten your smile. Our favourite way however, is using activated charcoal for teeth whitening.

Organika® Activated Charcoal Powder is an all-natural, pure powder that can be mixed with water to create an easy whitening alternative for your teeth! It can also be used to create a homemade face mask! Even better, it’s ecologically sourced from sustainably sourced hardwood/beech poplar trees, ensuring that no old growth forests are affected.

One questions we get asked is if its safe for your enamel? On the MOH’s scale of hardness your tooth enamel measures a 5, our powder is the finest grade and only measures a 1-2, thus, it will not damage your teeth, and does not adsorb the calcium salts your tooth enamel is made of. However, we do recommend you only do this 2-4x a month.

Activated charcoal powder mixed with water creates a paste that can be brushed onto teeth to help reduce visible staining. It turns your whole smile black for a few minutes while brushing, which can be quite frightening, but don’t worry! Just continue by rinsing with water, then brush your teeth with toothpaste as you normally would. Your smile will look bright, white and beautiful!

Activated Charcoal for Teeth Whitening Recipe



Combine 1/2 tsp of Organika® Activated Charcoal Powder with 3-5 drops of water in a small bowl until it forms a paste. Using a toothbrush, brush the activated charcoal paste onto your teeth for 1-2 minutes. Rinse with water, and brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste.

Many people notice a whiter smile immediately after use, but for best results, try brushing with activated charcoal a couple of times per week.

Tip: Activated Charcoal can be a bit messy to use and may stain surfaces or fabrics. Avoid using white cloths or towels to clean up. Make sure to clean up any bowls or surfaces directly after use.
