The word spagyric was coined in the 1600s by the renowned alchemist Paracelsus. It is Greek for “to separate and recombine” and indicates the mysterious process involved in the creation of these peculiar elixirs. A spagyric (pronounced “spah-jir-ik”) is a concentrated liquid herbal product that contains the three alchemical principles known as the Sulphur (essential oils) , Mercury (spirit) and Salt or body (alkaline mineral salts) of a plant. They are created using the entire plant through an alchemical process involving fermentation, distillation and the extraction of crystallized mineral components from the ash of the plant through extended calcination. Typical herbal tinctures only use the Sulphur and Mercury of the plant for their creation, making spagyric tinctures a holistic product in that all of its elements are retained. The tincture now contains all the acids, oils and minerals the plant originally had but now in much a more potent and purified form.
