Morihata Kishu Binchotan Charcoal
Originally created in the Kishu region of Japan during the Edo period, Binchotan Charcoal is a natural way to purify, cleanse, and naturally improve the quality of your daily life. To activate, skilled artisans burn branches of Ubame Oak at extremely high temperatures and then rapidly smother the flame with earth. This process causes the branches to become extremely porous and sensitive to chemicals and toxins, absorbing them like a sponge. It makes for a great natural water filter, as its porous nature draws chemicals out of tap water, naturally softening and improving its taste with no additives or chemicals. Beyond purifying water, Binchotan charcoal can be added to a hot bath to enhance blood circulation.
How to use
Before using, rinse charcoal sticks under running water and gently brush to remove excess ash. Bring a pot of water to a boil and insert charcoal, allowing to boil for 10 minutes. The charcoal is now ready to use.
Submerge desired amount of Binchotan Charcoal Sticks into a gallon of water. The charcoal will release alkali ions to increase the water’s pH, release natural minerals, and absorb unwanted chemicals from the water.
Add Binchotan Charcoal to a pot or steamer filled with water. The far infrared rays released by the charcoal during cooking will retain the taste of the food and eliminate any unpleasant smells. The charcoal will absorb any chlorine or chemicals from the cooking water, and also release good minerals into your food.
Add approximately one pound of Binchotan Charcoal to a hot bath. The charcoal will emit far infrared rays which improve blood circulation and keep your body warm and relaxed long after your bath.
AROUND THE HOUSE
Binchotan Charcoal works as a great deodorizer. Place charcoal pieces inside your fridge or cabinets, and the charcoal will absorb airborne odor-causing molecules and bacteria. They will also absorb moisture, helping to combat dampness and mold in a closet or drawer.
IN THE GARDEN
Recycle your used charcoal by re-purposing it as soil compost. Add broken pieces of charcoal to the soil of potted plants or in your garden to stimulate natural growth. The tiny holes in the charcoal help aerate the soil, increasing microbial activity and creating healthy natural soil for your beloved plants.
FOR HEALTHY LIVING
Place charcoal next to radiation-emitting appliances like computers, microwaves, or televisions. The activated ions block harmful low-frequency electromagnetic waves.
