I felt that the air in Philadelphia this year has been bad, because of the many big demolitions of the large old buildings in Center City. It has been fortunate that I have charcoal in my house to naturally purify the air. There are charcoals in each room to naturally filter the air. My two daughters’ light eczema has been a concern, and I have been bathing them with charcoal powders. This charcoal has been a great remedy for their skin. On a personal note, this purifying charcoal often reminds me how to live—without toxins, not only physically, but also mentally, socially, and culturally.
