Kishu Binchotan Water Purifier
Japanese Kishu Binchotan is the best quality white charcoal for purifying water. White charcoal is naturally activated through a controlled burning process done by hand and based on traditional Japanese methods. Binchotan soaks up chlorine and other unpleasant tastes from drinking water while releasing natural minerals into it. Binchotan has an alkaline effect, softening the water and improving the overall taste. To use Binchotan, boil it for 5 minutes to 'activate', then place in your water pitcher. Re-use it up to 3 months and then recycle it by breaking it apart into your plant soil. They will benefit from its nutrients. You can boil Binchotan once a month in order to optimize freshness. If Binchotan breaks, thats ok, its still good!
