Get ready to rejoice next time you open your stocking and find a lump of coal. The handcrafted white charcoal from Sort of Coal is designed for purifying everything from a cocktail to an entire room. Used by the Japanese for many centuries, Sort of Coal has adapted the mineral-rich substance for products to remove chlorine from tap water and add minerals. The charcoal blocks are made from Japanese and Korean oak, while products like soaps and shampoos are made with white charcoal powder from Korean red pine leaves.

Sort of Coal has also turned the magical substance into sculptural pieces and jewelry. And, after a piece of the charcoal has run its course, you can simply crush it and mix it with potting soil. The coal naturally nourishes plant life and regulates their pH level.
