Activated Charcoal Products

What is Activated Charcoal? Activated Charcoal is normal charcoal that has been heated in the presence of steam as to increase its absorptive properties, creating pores which can help “trap” chemicals. It has a wide range of uses, including odor control, medicinal, water purification, soil remediation, scours in calves, colic in babies, etc., making it one of the most incredibly versatile products you’ll ever encounter. Below are just a few of its amazing properties:
 Medicinal: Activated charcoal can be used to reduce intestinal gas, treat poisonings, lower cholesterol levels, and even treat Brown Recluse spider bites. There have been many studies that show activated charcoal is effective, making it an affordable and natural alternative to allopathic and over the counter medicines.
 Odor Control: Because of its filtration properties, charcoal (activated) can eliminate odors in the home. In place of replacing the stench with sweet, sickly, chemical smells that simply cover up stinky odors, it actually adsorbs the odor causing particles into itself, without letting go, thus eliminating odors completely.
 Air Filters: Many buy activated charcoal to purify air going through an air conditioner or fan, and for good reason too! Activated charcoal filters are one of the most effective types of filters on the market, giving you clean, odor free air.
We were able to try a variety of great products! Pure Non-Scents is made from a blend of virgin coconut shell granular charcoals that are acid-washed for extra strength. Granular Activated Coconut Charcoal was first used in gas masks during WW I and has been used ever since as the premier activated charcoal for air and vapor applications.
Kitty's Odor Stopper, stops feline litter odor in its tracks. It eliminates them and not just covers them up with a noxious perfume and or chemical. Kitty's Odor Stopper is non-toxic, chemical free, Activated Charcoal granular. It is ideal for the chemically sensitive person or animal and of course is safe for both humans and pets if ingested. This stuff really really works! Within a few hours we noticed that there was no more odor from the litter box! Amazing!
Dog Treats - Healthy and homemade, right here in the US, with organic ingredients. Annie's Super Natural Organic Charcoal Dog Biscuits adsorb odors and gas in the stomach to stop stinky doggy breath and also adsorbs stomach gas so they will take care of the other end too!
Activated charcoal tablets for internal use - indigestion, gas, nausea. Charcoal Tablets also work well for oral/dental complaints. For affected teeth just place a charcoal tablet next to the tooth. Good to suck on for a sore throat or bad breath. Rinse mouth with water when done and swallow. Vegetarian and gluten free. USP Food Grade charcoal tablets are made from a medicinal, steam activated carbon of 100% natural origin and have been processed to meet purification standards required for medical use.
Baa Baa black sheep have you any charcoal? The answer is yes! A whimsical, 3 dimensional black sheep made with bamboo charcoal and organic coconut oil. The perfect gift for all the black sheep in your life, maybe even ewe? Fun to use, amazingly detoxifying and moisturizing. Ideal for all skin conditions.

So many cool products and great uses! Plus, I was sent a book to learn all about the uses for Activated Charcoal! Very interesting!
