Ashwagandha Extracts (Withania somnifera), or Indian ginseng, is revered for its ability to meet the body where it is and provide deep support for the hormonal, reproductive, nervous, and immune system. Ashwagandha is known as an enemy of inflammation and a keeper of youthfulness. As an adaptogen, ashwagandha can help to support the body’s unique response to stress and maintain overall optimal mental and bodily health.
Our extracts are made from the aerial parts and/or roots of each plant that are organically, locally cultivated or sustainably wildcrafted and harvested by hand during their seasons of peak freshness and potency. In order to make sure that the final product is optimally effective, we carefully harvest the plants according to their unique cycles and seasons, before immersing them (at a potent ratio of 1:2 herb to liquid) immediately into alcohol according to their individual botanical compounds. This blend then steeps in a carefully controlled environment for at least six weeks to reach its full strength, before being decanted and bottled by hand and with love.
We use 100 proof organic cane alcohol to make our extracts. For the sake of absolute transparency, here’s more about our process: we dilute 190 proof cane with distilled water to arrive at a safe, effective 100 proof which is just the right strength. We use fresh plant material harvested at its peak and processed immediately in a 1:2 ratio with almost all of our extracts to make them as potent as possible, so if anyone is concerned about high “grain” alcohol (or cane), please understand that the fresh plant material dilutes the extract even more to take most extracts to a proof between 60-80 (30-40% alcohol by volume). In days gone by, we used 100 proof vodka (which is usually made with whatever grain is available) and 100 proof organic grain alcohol (corn or wheat) and we found numerous customers who mentioned their sensitivity to corn or wheat and so decided to make the switch to cane. Please let us know if you have any questions concerning our medicine making process.
