.Ultrasonic Extracts are botanical extracts which are 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 low temperatures. It’s possible to take this full-spectrum enriched Ultrasonic Solution and reduce it down using vacuum distillation at low temperatures.  

We are currently choosing to use water ~ the stable solvent & medium for life.  This has some advantages and several disadvantages. Currently in this phase we are most excited about diving into with it’s stability, non-flammability and 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.  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.  
  • Rare & Exotic medicinal herb / plant extracts produce unique therapeutic solutions.
  • 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.  

We’re currently in the infancy stages of testing the potential of our equipment – using 1-2 pounds per run which takes us about 1-1.5 weeks per batch for our artisan extracts.  So far we’ve learned so much from our mistakes from cracked flasks, leaking jars, clogging filters with micronized gum/resin, expired saturated plant material.

Our successes have led to beautiful Ultrasonic Hydrosols of:

Frankincense, Cedar, Mugwort, Damiana Sandalwood !

We’ve also produced concentrated extracts and yielded a finished artisan tinctures:

Ultrasonic Mugwort Tincture, Ultrasonic Damiana Tincture

And a Ultrasonic Limited Edition artisan extraction of Vanilla , this was Douglas Stewart's Premier Zero-Residue Solvent Extracted Vanilla, Douglas last run using the ultrasonic extraction machine from organic vanilla beans from Indonesia.(post coming soon!)

We’ve used the ultrasonic technology to infuse flower essences into a carrier oil as well, check out lilac infusion oil and to emulsify and enhacen many of our blends, like Shower In a Bottle (back in stocked and more potent than ever ) and our Kava Kava and Hemp formulas 

Our team is small & passionate.  Dreams wide & bold. Our community is humbled by the magick of our Ultrasonic Extracts and we feel that this may be the dawn of a new type of full-spectrum therapeutic products.  We are here to test the botanical seas to swim into the depths of consciousness & vitality <3
