Ultrasonic Extracts in lieu of "Essential Oils"
by Dr. Nick Berry
Ultrasonic Extracts are botanical extracts which contain the full spectrum of active constituents and phytochemicals. These Ultrasonic Extracts contain lipids, terpenes, phenols, plant alkaloids, flavonoids, carbonylic compounds, antioxidants, vitamins, pigments & enzymes – a rich, full-spectrum extract.
Ultrasonic extraction and Ultrasonic assisted extraction produces improved extraction results. This is defined as higher yields with high quality extracts offering a complete compound / aroma profile and full-flavour spectrum.
Ultrasonic waves produce a mechanical sheer force through the process of cavitation which break down the cell walls of plant material. This powerful sheering action releases the active constituents found in the plant directly into the solvent at room temperature. It’s possible to take this full-spectrum enriched Ultrasonic Solution and reduce it to a concentrated extract using vacuum distillation at low temperatures.
We are currently choosing to use water in our Ultrasonic Extracts ~ the stable solvent & medium for life. This has some advantages and several disadvantages. Currently in this phase we are most excited about diving into water with it’s stability, non-flammability and life giving & non-toxic nature.
Through this steady and time-consuming process we can produce an Ultrasonic Extract without any residual toxins and water is an abundant fluid necessary for life! What I’m discovering through subjective experience is these extracts can truly be felt when ingested – they bring forth what can previously be experienced as low-dose subtleties to a balanced and full-spectrum experience from any plant they are extracted from.
My personal experience is the Ultrasonic Extracts can produce an effective medium for delivering the full spectrum of potential therapeutic aspects offered by plants into a finalized concentrated extract. There are a few advantages to the Ultrasonic Extracts produced by EOW: ◦ Low temperature extractions (~ <105 F) using water as a solvent. ◦ Ultrasonic waves break down particle size which may enhance bioavailability.
We are taking the utmost care for each plant extraction process to minimize breakdown of delicate therapeutic molecules. Recombining final extracts with restructured water and Organic Craft Spirits for an artisan finalized product.
You will FEEL the effects of the plant when using these tinctures.
