Binchotan Charcoal Sticks
Binchotan charcoal is historically regarded as the highest quality activated charcoal for purifying water and absorbing toxins. Its process of activation carbonises 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 Wakayama, Japan.
Binchotan charcoal is known as the highest quality activated purifying charcoal. Made in the Kishu region of Japan since the Edo period, Binchotan charcoal is created by burning oak branches at extremely high temperature and then rapidly cooling them down. This ancient technique and product now translates into best sellers like Binchotan's Charcoal Eye Mask, which relaxes the area while absorbing excess oil and toxins, and the Binchotan Facial Soap, which revives your skin by gently exfoliating, moisturizing and absorbing impurities. Fans of minimalist Japanese design will love the eco-friendly Chikuno Cube air purifier, which was awarded the Japanese Good Design Award.
