Kishu Binchotan Charcoal Sticks

from 18.00

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. This process of heating and cooling carbonizes the structure of the wood, leaving countless microscopic cavities that easily trap unwanted chemicals. One gram of Binchotan charcoal has as much surface area as a tennis court.

Kishu Binchotan charcoal is known as the highest quality activated charcoal for purifying, softening and improving the taste of tap water, and can also be used to enhance flavors when cooking, remove toxins from the skin, capture moisture and odors from the air, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, and stimulate healthy soil in the garden.

Available in 1/4 pound, 1/2 pound, and 1 pound bags, each bag includes a random assortment of charcoal pieces of various sizes. Scroll down to watch a quick video about using and caring for your Binchotan charcoal sticks...
