For centuries, artisans in Japan’s Kishu region have been burning oak branches to yield Binchotan charcoal, renowned for its purifying properties. These charcoal sticks can be used to filter water (pop one in a carafe), bring out flavor while cooking rice, absorb odors in rooms and refrigerators, or give a healthy boost to soil in your garden or potted plants. We grab one to add a moment of Zen to bathtime. Each bag includes a random assortment of charcoal pieces of varying length and thickness.
