Binchotan charcoal is regarded as the purest and most effective type of activated charcoal, and is revered for its purifying ability. These sticks are 100% Ubame Oak, and are exactly as they are when removed from the ancient kilns in which they are made. The high temperatures and quick cooling, by dousing with ash, result in glass-like and beautiful branches.
When simply added to a carafe of water, the thousands of microscopic cavities left in the wood effortlessly remove unwanted toxins and impurities, while softening and improving water's taste. Completely natural, the sticks are great for the garden and can be disposed of in soil once they start to diminish in efficacy (about 3 months).
Materials: Charcoal; 100% Ubame Oak
Dimensions: ¼ lb bags. Each bag includes an assortment of charcoal pieces of various sizes.
Approximate stick sizes: 1/4 lb: 4"-6" in length and 1/2"-1" in diameter
7 EASY WAYS TO REALISE ITS BENEFITS
1. In drinking water.
Add 110g of Binchotan in a pitcher of tap water. Binchotan helps release alkali ions to increase the pH in water - around pH 8-8.5 - to create naturally made mineral water.
2. For cooking rice.
Binchotan emits far infrared rays when the temperature rises in the rice cooker, and the rice will cook completely. Ultra infrared rays can retain the taste of the food and eliminate any unpleasant smells. Binchotan will release healthy minerals into your food.
3. In the bath.
Add approximately 300g of Binchotan in hot bath water. This way, Binchotan emits ultra infrared rays which enhance blood circulation and keep your body warm and relaxed for a long time after.
4. By electrical appliances.
Place near appliances such as televisions, microwaves, computers and mobile phones which emit certain amounts of electromagnetic energy. Binchotan can block harmful electromagnetic waves with its unique electrical conductivity.
5. In your home environment.
The charged ions in our environment due to unhealthy smoke, noise, and harmful electromagnetic waves result in unclean air. Like the air at the seashore or in the forests, Binchotan introduces negative ions to the environment, which are said to put people in a better frame of mind.
6. Around your home.
Place Binchotan inside your refrigerator to work as a deodorizer, and eliminate those unwanted smells. Try Binchotan in your closet or in your shoe box. It also protects from dampness and molds. The cavities inside Binchotan absorbs bacteria which causes unpleasant smells and unnecessary moisture.
7. In your garden.
Recycle old, used charcoal. Broken pieces of Binchotan can be mixed or applied over regular soil. The infinite number of tiny holes in Binchotan creates great air and water passages in soil. This use helps to increase microbe activity and creates ideal soil for healthy plants.
