Earlier this year a “new” plant came across our radar and it sounded so interesting that we decided to work with it. I put “new” in quotes there because, although we never made a Spagyric from it, we’ve been familiar with Bee Balm since we lived in the mountains of Northern Arizona.
There, this gorgeous plant [...]

It may seem strange and even a little bit disrespectful to call such a beloved flower a weed, but here at Al-Kemi, we don’t consider “weed” an insult, and in any case, many kinds of roses do grow freely, wild and naturalized, all over the world. Their abundance, toughness, and adaptability don’t make them any [...]

As many of you know, Paul’s original profession was as a goldsmith and jeweler, and he still creates beautiful work in his studio, finding that it connects very well philosophically to his work in the lab.
Over the years, I have made jewelry as well, first helping Paul with his work, and then learning to create [...]

For a recent custom formula Paul is working on for a friend, we wanted a new Spagyric that would bring in a high, sacred energy relating to the Sun and its golden light of clarity. This formula will also contain some Oil of Gold, and so we thought of our much-beloved Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh [...]

Both of these new Spagyrics are probably familiar to many of you in other forms- we’ve worked with Calamus for years as an Initiatic, and wine grapes give us the alcohol we use in our higher Spagyrics. Exploring different facets of these plants through different levels of Spagyric work has been interesting, and we hope [...]

Years ago we went on a quest. We had heard about an amazing medicinal mushroom that we wanted to work with, and this being the pre-internet days, we had to hit the pavement in person to find it.
All over San Francisco Chinatown we went, asking at every herb shop we came to. The answer was [...]
