How do I use My Magic Mud®?
The most effective way to use our products is to replace your current toothpaste with our toothpaste, and to use our tooth powder at night just before bedtime when you need that extra deep cleaning and whitening effect.
You don’t need to use both products, but they do work so well together. Our toothpaste is very simple to use and totally delicious, however there’s just nothing like the raw detoxifying power of the original tooth powder.
We suggest using the tooth powder in the shower because it can be a bit messy, but we’ve included very detailed instructions in every product box, and we have this awesome How To Use Rap Video.
Only fresh product is shipped. Date stamps are manufactured dates. Average shelf life is 2 years from this date.
Is My Magic Mud® safe for children and nursing/pregnant mothers?
All of our products use the cleanest ingredients on the market. We’re talking only the highest quality natural and organic ingredients. It’s always important for Mommies to listen to their instincts and consult their midwives and health practitioners.
Children really like the Wintergreen flavor because it’s a sweeter blend. If product is swallowed, you’re only dealing with food grade ingredients, coconut oil, and essential oils, so there’s really no problem.
Are your products safe on dental work and all teeth conditions?
Our products don’t contain peroxides or any harsh chemicals and are very gentle. We have tons of customer anecdotes about its safety and efficacy on dental work and a range of dental conditions, however our activated charcoal oral care products are dark in color so it’s completely up to you to make this assessment exercising your own caution and common sense. Our products should not be used on overly porous or damaged teeth as staining can occur. For normal teeth, our products remove stains, polish, and whiten teeth.

How long does it take to work?
My Magic Mud® Activated Charcoal Toothpaste and Toothpowder takes an average of 6 to 14 days to show results. It really depends on what is causing your current tooth discoloration. Teenagers and young people typically see results instantly.
If you’re dealing with plaque and stains from build up over the years, you’ll likely see results quickly.
For deeper wine, coffee, and tea stains, it can take several weeks but you’ll see incremental results and the more committed you are, the better. We suggest using our products at least 3 times a day, and using the powder every time you take a shower.
If you have yellowing from prescription drugs or just naturally yellow dentin, our products will not whiten your teeth, however there are so many other benefits you’ll likely experience.
Do your products cause sensitivity?
Generally speaking, no. In fact, our activated charcoal powder and cinnamon clove toothpaste can reverse the current sensitivity you may be dealing with. You can view these products here.
However, the powder can cause sensitivity within the first few days of use if you have inflammation in this area before using this product.
Commonly, sensitivity is caused from brushing too hard because you’re simply so excited to use The Mud! We suggest brushing gently and slowly and use a soft-bristle toothbrushes.
Some people experience sensitivities to peppermint essential oil, so if you notice this, you may want to switch flavors. It’s pretty rare, but it happens.
