Passiflora Incarnata Spagyric Elixir

Passionflower was discovered by Spanish Jesuits in Peru in the 17th century and brought back to Europe. Of course this was not the discovery of this magical plant, the Peruvians used the flower as a sedative long before the Jesuits came there. Once it spread to Europe, it was used to treat restlessness and agitation, along with other ailments like indigestion and seizures. Today, it’s commonly used to treat anxiety.
The Spagyrisist and Alchemist talk of the Signature of a plant. SignNature, Signs of Nature. Nature communicates with us through signs, colors, shapes etc.
Purple and white coloration often has to do with the nervoussystem, the crownchakra .
Another signature is the spiraling little tendrils and that passionflowers are vines growing in upward spirals. . Passionflower is excellent to help the mind from going in loops. Very good for people that lie awake thinking in loops, unable to mellow down enough to relax and fall asleep. Repetitive and compulsive thoughts. I have used it in formulas for OCD that according to the ones that tried it work.
This spiralling signature can also be connected to the planet Uranus who travels in a spiraling orbit . The sign Aquarius is ruled by this Planet that emanates a truly electrical energy .
An overly busy mind can lead to tension and anxiety if it spirals out of control.
Passionflower is your friend if this is the case, to move down into intuition, down into the body if you are too much up in the mind for your own good.

The Wounded Healer
When I was young I went through a psychosis that lead to a period of depression. I had to stay in a mentalhospital for a while. My friends took me to a gardeningstore to get me out on an excursion away from the hospital where i was very unhappy to be. There were many plants and from all of them I picked a passionflower to bring back to the hospital to keep me company. Just to be in the presence of this magical flower helped me get out of this looping state of mind and spiraling energy so I could get out of that hospital. I did not know with my mind that this flower helped the condition I was struggeling with , but obviously my heart knew . Plants come into your life for a reason.
I have prepared a spagyric tincture of this incredible flower on the mercurial wednesdays.

The Secret Fire

"Fire is at the root and about the root - I mean about the center of all things both visible and invisible. It is in Water, Earth and Air, it´s in minerals, herbs and beasts; it is in men , stars and angels. But originally it is in God Himself; for he is the fountain of heat and fire, and from Him it is derived to the rest of the creatures in a certain stream of sunshine. "
- Dr. John Dee

Last night I  lit a Mullein-torch in the Virgo Full moon.

 The new year has begun. I am busy making elixirs as usual but I have more orders nowdays. Thank you everybody that has been supporting me. I have many returning customers and I am very happy that my elixirs have helped customers with insomnia, to stop smoking and many other things.
(To be more independent, love themselves etc. This is the initiatic aspect of spagyrics. Plants are teachers of the soul.)
Part of the Spagyric process. The plants that have been macerating in alcohol are not composted. This is what is the main difference between spagyrics and ordinary tinctures. Instead the macerated plants  are burned down to an ash and purified through distilled water or hydrosol of the herb being worked with. Recombined ; the essential oil (the sulfur aspect in Alchemy, the soul ) the tincture (the spirit) and the purified mineralcrystals (referred to as the Salt principle in Alchemy, the body) are the parts of  the  elixir separated and worked on separately and recombined in an exalted form.

Here is the Spagyric Elixir of Rosemary, extracted in this way. Making it a potent remedy working on mind, soul and body simultaneously. This is why Spagyric Tinctures are referred to as Initiatic Plantmedicine.

Cypress Hydrosol

I have been distilling cypress when the moon was in Sagitarius on the planetary day and hours of Jupiter . Wishing I could transmit the aroma. In one word: Viriditas !
Huge, wise, happy, smoky, uplifting , holy, just like Jupiter-energy. I made a parfumeoil with it that I am very happy with.

Viriditas (Latin, literally "greenness," formerly translated as "viridity"[1]) is a word meaning vitality, fecundity, lushness, verdure, or growth. It is particularly associated with abbess Hildegard von Bingen, who used it to refer to or symbolize spiritual and physical health, often as a reflection of the divine word or as an aspect of the divine nature.
