Low + Low Method

Once the bioactive constituents of the herbs have been extracted, the extracts are then highly concentrated with our meticulous low + low method—low temperature in combination with low atmospheric pressure—to protect the fragile, subtle vital forces of each plant.

Preserving the full chemical makeup of what we worked so hard to capture requires a slow, careful concentration technique involving low temperature and low atmospheric pressure.

Our low + low method of concentration uses a low atmospheric pressure of 24 millibars (versus the Earth’s standard sea level pressure of 1,013.25 millibars) that allows the water and alcohol to evaporate slowly (much more slowly than other conventional concentration methods), while a low temperature of 60°C (140°F, nearly 75° below water’s boiling point of 212°F/100°C) prevents any volatile, subtle, natural compounds from being damaged. As it evaporates, the organic grain alcohol is recaptured and purified, creating a closed-loop system in which no alcohol evaporates into the environment.
