For centuries, the Japanese have been using Binchotan charcoal for its purifying properties. This super-absorbent activated charcoal is made in Japan the traditional way, from oak branches burned at high temperatures and then cooled rapidly. Use it to capture odors and moisture in the air, as a "hippy Brita" to purify water (its porous nature draws chemicals out of tap water, naturally softening and improving taste), to remove toxins from the skin (added to a hot bath it enhances blood circulation), to stimulate healthy soil in your garden or potted plants, and to deflect negative ions in your home.
Paper-wrapped package contains approximately 1/4lbs of ~6" long Kishu Binchotan charcoal sticks.
Made in Wakayama, Japan
