Goodrick-Clarke (U. of Exeter, UK), a homeopath who lectures on the history of alchemy, introduces spagyrics as a branch of medicinal alchemy that enhances the healing energies of plants. She traces its philosophical roots to Paracelsus and homeopathy, comments on contemporary spagyric pharmaceutical companies, and presents methods for making spagyric essences for self-care. The book includes plant profiles (which add "the ruling planet" to typical herbal description categories), and resources.
