Explanation of Essential Oils
The extraction of essential oils cannot be dissociated from the art of spagyria which descends directly from the art of alchemy.
Spagyria is the art of extracting the three principles “body, soul and spirit” from the plant. The essential oil is the “Fire” principle, the “spirit” of the plant.
For example, if you burn a plant, you get ashes from it in which is the “Salt” of the plant that corresponds to its “body” principle.
If you put the plant to macerate in alcohol or water, you will extract a tincture that corresponds to the “soul” of the plant with its “Water” principle.
The essential oil is extracted by different processes, the most used historically is distillation: this corresponds to the “spirit” of the plant.
It is for this reason that essential oils contain the subtle smell of the plant and have an anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and magical effectiveness for some plants since they represent the “Fire” principle.
These three analog principles “body, soul and spirit” exist in all matter whether vegetable, mineral or crystalline. We find these three principles inside the human body but also in the atom, with the representation of the proton, the electron and the neutron.
