Coming from the Greek “Spao”, “to draw out”, and “Ageiro”, “to gather”, spagyrics is known to be the alchemical practice performed, and likely created, by Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, also known as Paracelsus. The art consists of breaking down matter into its 3 principles (Body, Mind, and Spirit), refining each principle to the highest purity, and bringing it back together through the marriage of the red king and the white queen, in order to create the quintessence, or spagyric tincture. Many mistaken spagyrics to be simply “herbal alchemy” due to the fact that Paracelsus himself mainly worked within the herbal kingdom. However spagyrics is a style of alchemy applicable to all 4 kingdoms, not only the herbal one.
