Today a friend pointed me to Spagyric Alchemy. I was fascinated! Here is what caught my eye as magic in his words:
“Alchemical processing gave me a way to include these essential nutrients into my tinctures, taking full advantage of the plant’s activity. After the herb is macerated in the extracting liquid (the menstruum), the used herb or marc is removed and then calcined, specifically burned and reduced to white ash. This white ash is pure minerals and almost all of it is soluble when it is added back into the tincture. To me that produces the finest, full-spectrum extract available."
If you know - Tell me more!!
