The Process of Spagyrics.
Paracelsus was an Alchemist who brought The Art of Alchemy into the realm of medicine, where it received its name "Spagyrics".
The term Spagyric comes from the ancient greek terms σπάω spao "to draw out" and ἀγείρω ageiro "to gather".
The process involves extracting the three principles of the matter (in this case plant), refining those three extractions and then reintroducing them to each other in whats known as "cohobation" or marriage.
This process renders a refined herbal medicine, imbibed with the hermetic art.
It's the path of The Inner Grove Apothecary
to offer these remedies to those that wish to experience their virtues.
Another important factor in the work of Alchemy is Astrology.
We see that each of the main 7 planets represents one of the 7 energy centers in our body.
All of manifestation fits into one or more of these archetypical energies/planetary influences.
This knowledge is used in all stages of the preparation of these medicines, and thus the Spagyric Tincture becomes a magnet for the universal planetary force in which it is worked.
The Three Principles.
"Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided."
