Hello to all,

Thank you for accepting me on this forum.
I was aware of alchemy for many years now, but only the surface level.

A few month now, the book of aquarious happen to be on my desktop and i started reading a few paragraphs. The more i was reading, the small amber of alchemy inside me began to grow, and i started to understand some concepts that were totally hidden from me before.

After this book, i read countless others, focusing on the ones below 1800, as i understand this was about the time where alchemy became more obscure and forgotten than before.

Long story short, i like the ideea of making alchemical products, that are raising the vibration of ones being, and trying to perfect it to the very most high vibrations.

I dont have a lab, but will be soon enough and start to experiment with the plant kingdom, then mineral. Altough the animal kingdom presents many healing benefits...uhm...its not for me, so i will skip this one.

I am looking mostly for the health benefits, from what i read in the old texts, the alchemical elixirs have some very amaizing effects on health and maibe more.

English is not my first language, so, if i have any mistakes, i appologise in advance.

In my searches i was looking for somebody to talk to about this special art, but was verry difficult to find, and i am glad i found this place so we can excange ideas.

Its very difficult to talk to any normal human about the difference between for example a vulgar gold and a living gold.....they just cant comprehend the concept and cant accept other ways of thinking.

Modern science is just finding out what alchemists or old philosophers or secret doctrins knew or imagined thousands of years ago.

All the above made me give alchemy a real shot into its theoretical knowledge and practical lab work.

I wish you all success in all your works.

Welcome to the Forum!

Which of the pre-1800 books have stood out most for you?

I like the works of Hollandus, it seems to give good instructions, if one is to belive his writings.

He is instructing from the making and preparation of the ingredients to a lot of alchemical recipies, without to much fables in the writings.

The secret book of Artephius, is also very well seen by the old adepta and i also like it, but one must decode his writing a bit.

The writings of Barron Urbigerus, also i like his instructions.

These are my top 3, im still new in this art, but i am trying to learn as much as i can.

Next in line the works of Abraham Eleazar, and the Golden Chain of Homer.

If you have some suggestions, they will be much appreciated.

Welcome! BoA had MANY inaccuracies but I will say it likewise did the service of setting on the course to research alchemy much further. The book at least contains a ton of great references worth looking into.

Hollandus, Urbigerus, and Homerus are some of my most cherished as well.
