About Alchemillas Apotek
Lisa is an artist with a passion for alchemy and the healing power of plants. The herbs are her teachers and co-creators in this practice. She lives and work in close connection with the plant-kingdom.
All her spagyric products are organic, ethically foraged in the wild or grown in her garden. Sometimes friends bring plants that they have grown or collected on travels and in some cases she buys dried organic plants from reliable sources.
For the majority Lisa uses fresh plants in her practice, as the viriditas, the green life-force of the plants are harvested in tune with the celestial forces. The spagyric operations are timed astrologically with the phases of the moon and its orbit through the signs of the zodiac.
Lisa follows the cycles of nature and works in ceremony as close to the earth as to the stars. She brings the plants into her lab and guides them through the initiatic processes of transforming into spagyric tinctures.
The intelligence of nature is at the centre of this practice.
“Alchemy is the gentle acceleration of growth through the use of the fire of nature” – Paracelsus
Lisa also teaches workshops in the art of spagyria. She teaches intensive courses during the summer in her laboratory in the forest and she is a guest teacher at Biskops Arnö, at Naturens Medicin.
She has a background in visual art and is still working as an artist.
She studied ayurveda at The Norhern European School of Ayurveda , gong as a therapeutic instrument with Mehtab Benton, herbalism with The School of Evolutionary Herbalism, astrology with Tyler Penor and Johan Andao , Alchemy with Alkemiska Akademin and Phoenix Aurelius.
