Binchotan 1 Pound Bits

Prized in Japan for its amazing absorptive properties, Binchotan charcoal pieces have been used to deodorize humid spaces for centuries.  Every single charcoal bit contains thousands of microscopic cavities that naturally attract, retain, and neutralize odors and moisture from the air. To use, simply place a few bits in the corners of damp, humid places inside your house. Ideal for basements, bathrooms, and other small spaces with high levels of humidity, these eco-friendly bits can also be planted into the garden to stimulate healthy soil.   

About Binchotan Charcoal

Activated charcoal has been used for centuries in Japan as a natural air and water purifier. Our private label Binchotan Charcoal is activated by burning branches of Japanese Ubame oak at extremely high temperatures inside an artisan kiln for fourteen days. This process, known as nerashi, naturally carbonizes the structure of the wood, transforming it into an extremely porous and absorbent deodorizer.
