Made in the Kishu region of Japan since the Edo period, Binchotan charcoal is activated by burning oak branches at extremely high temperatures for several days and then rapidly cooling them. Known as the highest quality activated charcoal for purifying water, Binchotan charcoal can be used to absorb chemicals in tap water, remove toxins from the skin, capture moisture and odors from the air, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, stimulate healthy soil in the garden and deflect negative ions in your home.
These charcoal sticks are truly multi-purpose... You can use them purely decoratively or put them to work:
- Excellent air purifier.
- OR turn your tap water into mineral water! Binchotan will absorb up to 75% of the chlorine found in tap water in addition to releasing into your water it's very own wonderful minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus.
