You can use this Activated Charcoal Detox Scrub on areas that need a little more detoxing than others- under arms, feet, knees, elbows.
*Remember that Activated Charcoal easily stain clothing and grout. Use old towels, paper towels and a natural cleaner to clean and rinse out sink, or shower after use. I uses the Thieves All-Purpose Cleaner by Young Living and it works amazingly well! If you are wanting to kick chemicals out of your home- that is a great place to start!
