Binchotan Charcoal Sticks
Pack contains 1/4LB of Binchotan charcoal (3 sticks)
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).
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.
