Respected for its purifying ability and regarded as the purest and most effective type of charcoal, Binchotan charcoal is made from 100% Ubame Oak and when added to water easily removes unwanted toxins and impurities while softening and beautifying the taste. Entirely natural, the Binchotan charcoal sticks are great for the garden and may be disposed of in soil once efficacy is diminished (roughly 3 months). As seen in The Lekker Creative.

By burning oak branches until they are red hot and then rapidly cooling them, artisans in the Kishu region of Japan have been making Binchotan Charcoal for centuries. Regarded as the best quality charcoal for purifying water, Binchotan charcoal is also known to enhance blood circulation, capture moisture and odors from the air, and stimulate healthy soil in the garden.

Materials: Charcoal; 100% Ubame Oak

Measures: Available in 1/2 lb and 1/4 lb bags. Each bag includes an assortment of charcoal pieces of various sizes

Imported from Wakayama, Japan.
