Powerful purification. Kishu Binchotan in its purest form.
Binchotan charcoal is regarded as the purest and most effective type of activated charcoal and is revered for its purifying ability. Made from 100% ubame oak and are exactly as they were when removed from the ancient kilns in which they are made. The high temperatures firing and short cooling times - done by dousing the new charcoal with ash - result in beautiful, glass-like branches of binchotan.
When simply added to a carafe of water, it will remove unwanted toxins and impurities, while softening and improving water's taste. The sticks are great for the garden and can be broken up and disposed of in soil once they start to diminish in efficacy (about 3 months).
