Unlocking the potential: creative uses for organic alcohol

Herbal tinctures

With its high solubility and purity, organic ethyl alcohol efficiently breaks down cell walls, allowing it to dissolve essential oils, alkaloids, and other bioactive constituents from the plant material. This extraction process results in highly concentrated and potent tinctures, offering consumers a convenient and effective way to access the therapeutic benefits of herbs.

Mushroom tinctures

Mushrooms contain a variety of beneficial compounds such as polysaccharides, beta-glucans, triterpenoids, and other extractable compounds which are soluble in alcohol. Organic ethyl alcohol effectively breaks down the cell walls of mushrooms, allowing it to extract these compounds and concentrate them into the tincture solution. This extraction process preserves the therapeutic properties of the mushrooms, resulting in potent and easily absorbable tinctures that offer a convenient way to incorporate the health benefits of mushrooms into one's daily routine.

Limoncello, cello, fruit & berry liqueurs

Organic ethyl alcohol serves as the perfect base for crafting exquisite limoncello, cello, and various fruit and berry liqueurs. When combined with fresh, organic ingredients such as lemons, oranges, berries, or other fruits, the high-proof alcohol acts as a solvent, drawing out the essence and aroma of the ingredients. Its high alcohol content ensures rapid extraction, resulting in robust flavors infused into the liquor. The combination of quality organic alcohol and fresh organic produce yields liqueurs of unparalleled richness and depth, making each sip a delightful experience of pure, natural flavors.

Natural perfume

Organic ethyl alcohol serves as a versatile base for making natural organic perfume due to its ability to effectively dissolve and carry aromatic compounds derived from botanical sources. With its high purity and neutral odor, organic ethyl alcohol acts as a solvent, extracting the essential oils and fragrances from various flowers, herbs, and spices. Perfumers blend these alcohol-based extracts to create unique scent compositions, which, when applied to the skin, release layers of delicate and nuanced aromas. The evaporation of alcohol leaves behind the pure essence of the botanicals, resulting in a long-lasting and enchanting fragrance experience.

Why choose organic alcohol?

No chemical residues

Organic alcohol is produced from organic crops that are grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. This means there are no chemical residues in the alcohol, which can lead to a cleaner and more natural end product.

Safety

Organic alcohol does not contain harmful chemicals or toxins that can be present in conventional alcohols. This can be especially important when using alcohol-based tinctures for medicinal or dietary purposes, as you want to avoid introducing unnecessary contaminants.

Enhanced flavor and aroma

Organic alcohol is often considered to have a cleaner and purer taste compared to non-organic varieties. This can be particularly relevant when making herbal tinctures, as it may allow the natural flavors and aromas of the herbs to shine through.

Environmental benefits

Organic farming practices are generally more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Organic alcohol production tends to have a lower impact on soil and water quality, which can contribute to a healthier ecosystem. ​​Organic farming tends to prioritize animal welfare, biodiversity, and sustainable land use.

How to make a tincture with organic food grade alcohol

You'll need:

  • dried activated plant material
  • high-proof organic ethyl alcohol
  • mason jars or glass containers
  • fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth
  • funnel
  • amber glass dropper botles for storing the final tincture

01 PREPARE THE PLANT MATERIAL

Ensure your plant material is fully dried. Moisture can introduce unwanted elements and promote the growth of mould. Grind or break up the plant material into smaller pieces. This increases the surface area and enhances extraction.

02 CHOOSE THE RIGHT ALCOHOL

Select a high-proof organic ethyl alcohol. The alcohol should be safe for consumption and of high quality.

03 COMBINE ALCOHOL AND PLANT MATERIAL

Place the dried plant material in a glass jar. Pour enough alcohol over the plant material to fully submerge it. The plant material should be covered by the alcohol.

04 ​SEAL AND SHAKE

Seal the jar tightly and shake it gently to mix the alcohol and plant material. Allow the mixture to sit in a cool, dark place for a period of time. The extraction time can vary depending on the plant and the compounds you're extracting. Shake the jar gently each day. This helps distribute the plant material and encourages thorough extraction.

05 ​STRAIN THE MIXTURE

After the extraction period, strain the mixture to remove the plant material. You can use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. You might need to strain it multiple times to ensure no plant material remains.

06 ​STORE THE TINCTURE

Transfer the strained tincture into amber glass dropper bottles. Amber glass helps protect the tincture from light exposure. Label the bottles with the date and type of tincture.

07 ​OPTIONAL: EVAPORATE FOR CONCENTRATION

If you want to concentrate the tincture further, you can allow some of the alcohol to evaporate. Place the tincture in an open container in a well-ventilated area. Keep in mind that this will also concentrate the potency of the tincture.

08 USAGE

Tinctures can be consumed orally, typically by placing a few drops under the tongue. You can also add tinctures to beverages or foods.

Why isopropyl alcohol must not be used in food preparation

We sometimes hear growers use isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to make tinctures. Isopropyl alcohol, also known as rubbing alcohol or IPA should not be used in food preparation because it is not intended for human consumption. It contains impurities that could be harmful if ingested, such as methanol or acetone. Even small amounts of these substances can be fatal. And if you evaporate alcohol, the impurities still remain in the end product in concentrated levels. Therefore, it is important to use only food-grade alcohol when preparing or handling food. Organic ethyl alcohol is safe for human consumption in small amounts and is commonly used in cooking and food processing.
