Binchotan Charcoal

Binchotan Charcoal


Regular price $0 $15

Binchotan charcoal is regarded as the purest and most effective type of activated charcoal, and is revered for its purifying ability. These sticks are 100%Ubame Oak, and are exactly as they are when removed from the ancient kilns in which they are made. The high temperatures and quick cooling, by dousing with ash, result in glass-like and beautiful branches.

When simply added to a carafe of water, the thousands of microscopic cavities left in the wood effortlessly remove unwanted toxins and impurities, while softening and improving waters taste. Completely natural, the sticks are great for the garden and can be disposed of in soil once they start to diminish in efficacy (about 3 months).
