Well, yeah, it seems kind of counter-intuitive to me, as well. I think she said that it absorbs the yucky stuff (or something) and whitens the teeth. I'd imagine it might be hard on the enamal?
Well, thank you for the advice. I think I'm going to hold off on the charcoal for now. I got a little caught up in her enthusiasm there for a while.
(her teeth really are very white, and she's been doing this for 30 years, though!)
Back to the tea tree oil for me!
THANK YOU SMILEMOMMA!
