History Of Alchemy

Alchemy is about refining things to a higher form than they were previously, but it is also about so much more. It has become a large part of science and medicine in many cultures and although it may not be apparent at first glance, our relationship with alchemy is intertwined with history. It’s the true precursor of today’s modern chemistry. Ancient alchemy has a more holistic view than modern chemistry, and its three basic principles can be symbolically described as follows:

Sulfur – Soul – Essential Oils

Mercury – Mind – Alcohol

Salt – Body – Mineral salts
