Binchotan charcoal comes from…

      Binchotan Charcoal is a type of Activated Carbon that has been traditionally produced for over 300 years by charcoal manufacturers in the Kishayama Prefecture of Wakayama, Japan. To produce charcoal of excellent quality, they used the extremely hard Ubame oak tree that grows in the forested hills of Kishu. Oak tree branches are carefully selected and placed into large kilns built in the mountains. Next, the villagers burn them at low temperatures for several weeks to control the flow of oxygen. Finally, they increased the temperature inside the furnace to over 1000 degrees and monitored the color of the smoke. Observe until the smoke color becomes pure white, this means all impurities have been burned, the charcoal bar will reach its highest purity.

      Binchotan coal contains nearly 100% carbon. The name Binchotan comes from a famous charcoal artist, Binchoya Chozaemon. It is also called White Coal because the outside surface is covered with a layer of white ash. This ash layer is after heating the coal to the point, people remove the coal from the furnace and immediately cover it with a layer of white ash to cool it quickly. . This type of charcoal also has another very beautiful name, Chrysanthemum Charcoal. As you can see, the cross-section of the charcoal bar looks like an image of a chrysanthemum, right? 

      The process of making Binchotan charcoal eventually became known in other parts of Japan, but Kishu Binchotan remains the finest, densest and purest charcoal and is still made by hand through a process passed down through many generations. generation.

How does Binchotan charcoal work?

      In the 20th century, scientists began to study the benefits of Binchotan and its properties, discovering that it has a structure of microscopic pores. The area of ​​these pores reaches 270 square meters of surface per gram of coal. How surprising ! These pores also explain why people use charcoal to filter dirty water and dirt: Through the process of ‘absorption, whereby particles are attracted and adhere to surfaces, pores clean the environment. by absorbing gases from the atmosphere, electromagnetic waves and radio frequencies as well as chlorine and heavy metals from water. Radiation is also weakened when passing through Binchotan. Binchotan produces good energy by generating negative ions. Negative ions are negatively charged atoms that attract positive ions in the air. An excessive amount of positive ions in the environment can affect respiratory function and cause fatigue. Binchotan absorbs these positive ions and instead releases negative ions found in natural energies such as waves, waterfalls and thunderstorms.
