Binchotan Charcoal Sticks
Binchotan charcoal is historically regarded as the highest quality activated charcoal for purifying water and absorbing toxins. Its process of activation carbonizes the structure of the wood, leaving countless microscopic cavities that easily trap unwanted toxins. Its porous nature draws chemicals out of tap water, naturally softening and improving its taste. Place a charcoal stick in a bottle or water container and leave to infuse overnight to transform regular tap water. Beyond purifying water, charcoal traps odours in the air and can be planted in garden earth to stimulate healthy soil, or added to a hot bath to enhance blood circulation. Each bag includes an assortment of charcoal pieces of various sizes.
Made in the Kishu region of Japan.
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).
Materials: Charcoal; 100% Ubame Oak
How to use: Place 1 stick into water to purify it and remove chemicals and heavy metals. Binchotan can be placed in a water jug or bottle and left in the fridge overnight to purify and alkalise the water.
Each stick can be used for around 2-3 months before needing to be replaced.
We recommend boiling your sticks every 2-3 weeks to remove the absorbed chemicals and refresh them.
More About Binchotan Charcoal
Binchotan Charcoal is a type of Activated Charcoal that has been traditionally made in the Kishu province of Wakayama in Japan for over 300 years.
Over the past 30 years, scientists have began to study the benefits of Binchotan and its properties, finding that it had a micro-porous structure with 270 square metres of internal surface in each gram. Through a process of ‘adsorption’, whereby particles are attracted and adhere to the surface, the pores cleanse the environment by adsorbing gases from the atmosphere, electromagnetic waves and radio frequencies as well as chlorine and heavy metals from water. Radiation is also weakened as it passes through Binchotan.
