WHAT ARE SPAGYRICS?
The term Spagyric originated in ancient Greece. It literally means to extract or separate and to collect, join and unite. It is a natural system and procedure of health and healing that is derived from pure plant essences, making it the perfect process for creating wholesome, all natural skin care. Spagyric procedures allows us to preserve and intensify the positive qualities and energies of plants, minerals, and metals. Principles of alchemy and hermetic ways of thinking and working are represented in the spagyric procedure. Basically, Spagyric is the process of separating, purifying, and then recombining. This process produces concentrated aromatic solutions that are extracted and separated from the bulk plant matter. After fermentation is completed, the plant material is distilled in a special device, and the remainder dried and burned. The ashes are extracted and purified via distillation, then recombined with the concentrated solution. As a result, the finished spagyric essence contained the mineral constituent parts of the plant.Through this process, damaging and cell-harming substances that are not beneficial to your skin are gently separated and discarded.The ultimate goal of using Spagyric is to present you and your skin with wholesome and holistic skin care products, free from any damaging materials. Your skin cells are rejuvenated and your mind is harmonized and calmed with clarity and vigilance. Through plant, gemstone and metal refinement, all energies and healing properties are released from these components.
