Charcoal Powder by Starwest Botanicals

Activated charcoal is used to treat poisonings and overdoses following oral ingestion. The use of activated carbon is contraindicated when the ingested substance is an acid, an alkali, or a petroleum product. You can find video instructions on YouTube. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 500 m2 [meters squared], with 1500 m2 [meters squared] being readily achievable.

Common charcoal is made from peat, coal, wood, coconut shell, or petroleum. Activated charcoal is similar to common charcoal, but is made especially for use as a medicine. To make activated charcoal, manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or "pores." These pores help activated charcoal "trap" chemicals.
