  • The 'jukyeom' means 'bamboo salt' literally but it is a proper noun invented by Korean Divine Herbalist "Insan" Kim Il-hoon(1909-1992). We can also spell it 'jukyom' in English.
  • Neither systematic methodology of jukyeom manufacture, nor any analysis of its ingredients or proper application for any particular purpose was carried out until the publication of the book 'The Universe and Mystical Medicine (宇宙와神藥, Korean)' by "Insan" Kim Il-hoon in 1981.

  • Take 10 to 20 grains of jukyeom (solid type) 5 or 7 times a day at your conveniences.
  • Take 1 teaspoon (2g) of jukyeom powder 5 or 7 times a day, 30 minutes before meal or sleeping and at your convenience between meals.
  • Take in the above-mentioned way with a tea, which is made of decocting ginger (38g) and a licorice root (29g). Adding a jujube (10g) is better for women.
  • Eat parched garlic with jukyeom several times a day.
  • It is not harmful to take jukyeom with other medicines, food, etc.

  • Jukyeom can be used for the food seasoning as a substitute of refined salt for both taste and health.

  • For mouth, take 1~ 2g jukyeom, dissolve slowly in the mouth and swallow. Repeat this 7~ 20 times a day.
  • For skin, knead jukyeom powder with clean water into a paste and spread on the troubled part. You may also apply an ointment, which is mixed with jukyeom powder.
  • For eye, dissolve jukyeom into pure spring or distilled water. Then filter out the impurities and drop the filtered jukyeom liquid (salt concentration of 10~15% is adequate) into eyes by using an eyewash bottle.
  • For nose and ear, dip cotton balls into the jukyeom dissolved in distilled water to a small degree and then put into nose or ear before sleeping.
  • For the first aid treatment of an external wound such as cutting of finger or toe, sprinkle jukyeom powder onto the troubled part.

How to make Jukyeom, Korean Bamboo Salt

  • For the sub-materials for genuine jukyeom, we need the sun-dried salt from the Western Sea Coast of the Korean Peninsula, bamboo tree of more than three years old, pure yellow soil from deep valleys, pine tree firewood and steel furnace.
  • Those four major sub-materials should be Korean origin due to their unique ingredients.
  • The reason is grounded on the fact that certain herbs such as ginseng or bamboo have a totally different ratio of its major ingredients according to its country of origin.

  • Cut the bamboo tree trunk so that one end is hollowed and the other end is closed.
  • Then fill the bamboo tubes with the sun-dried sea salt and close the opened end with kneaded yellow soil from deep valleys.

  • The bamboo tubes are then stacked inside the furnace, and roasted with pine tree firewood.

  • While the bamboo container becomes ash, the melted ingredients of bamboo soak into the salt. The stuffed salt is also melted and then becomes hardened into white column.
  • · The hand mill crushes these hardened salt columns. Then new bamboo tube containers are filled with the crushed salt and heated again.
  • This type of heating process is repeated 8 times.

  • On the 9th time, it is roasted over 2400 ℃ by sprinkling pine-resin on the pine tree firewood.
  • Through this process, the salt is beginning to melt and flow down like lava,  and finally becomes hardened like big stone.
  • This is "Jukyeom" (which means "Bamboo Salt" in Korean). People can take this salt in a type of solid or powder.
