February 16, 2016

Powders 1. Activated charcoal I’ve heard about this product for a while now especially from the Shea butter Cottage brand. It’s one of those natural powders that absorb/trap organic toxins and chemicals in the body. I remember using the capsules to treat poisoning. I can’t wait to use it as a teeth whitener and face mask. 2. Rhassoul clay I’ve tried bentonite clay previously and it’s only right to try…
