Spagyrics, what's that?

spagyrik heidak flascheSpagyrics is a very old healing method that was already known in the Middle Ages to Paracelsus, the great doctor and mentor.
Spagyric essences belong to the most effective and compatible remedies. They are produced from healing plants through a special process and are non toxic, do no harm, and contain very little alcohol. They can be applied in acute as well as chronic diseases.

The name "spagyrics" derives from the Greek words "spao" (= separate) and "ageiro" (= bring together).

How are spagyric essences produced?

In 1870, the physician Carl-Friedrich Zimpel developed the spagyric preparation process, based on Paracelsus' and Glauber's foundation, that is still valid today. This preparation method aims at the highest possible activation of all medical healing powers; thus, the herbs with their effective healing substances, are turned into a solubilised spagyric essence, liberated from ballast, that can hardly be compared to the homeopathic mother tincture.

The base for spagyric essences are dried or fresh healing plants from biologic cultivation. After a precise quality examination, the healing plants are cut, fermented for about 3 weeks, and then distilled. The soluble and volatile active agents are obtained, using steam distillation.
The remaining mash is burnt to ashes and then calcinated at 400°C to maintain the plants' highly potent mineral substances. Subsequently, the ashes are being dissolved in the distillate, which is referred to as "spagyric matrimony". Selected essences are then potentiated and thus dynamized.

    How to apply spagyric essences?

    Spagyric essences are taken with the practical mouth spray. For chronic diseases we recommend 3x3 spray pumps a day. A bottle of 50 ml is sufficient for about 50 days. In acute cases, you can also take one spray pump each hour, for a brief period of time (2-3 days). All essences are also suitable for external application. A light massage with the essence on the corresponding acupressure point has a good effect.

    Who can apply spagyric essences?

    Since spagyrics cause no side effects, they can be applied by all age groups. Our spagyric essences also show very good results through application on animals. Please inquire for the informative folder "spagyrics for animals".

    On what symptoms can you apply spagyrics?

    A precise answer to this question would definitely go beyond the scope of this manual! Presume, that you can find essences for any kind of discomforts and diseases, that help to soothe the symptoms.

    For example…

    In autumn, an important topic is to get stronger, not to fall prey to every cough or cold that's going around, and not to catch a cold that easily - it's important to reinforce the immune system! Being more susceptible to infections is usually due to stress and psychological burdens. Therefore, it's important to strengthen the body as a whole!

    Strengthening your resistance is possible using the following essences:

    • sonnenhutEchinacea

      Echinacea has a positive effect on the whole immune system. It reinforces the immune condition, and provides good resistance against pathogenic agents of any kind. In a situation with current infections, the essence helps to overcome the disease faster.

    • Eleutherococcus (Eleutherococcus radix)

      Eleutherococcus is an essence that strengthens the body and psyche, makes them resistant, and helps to fight infections. This stabilizing effect is seen especially in physical and psychological stress situations. Eleutherococcus helps to better cope with that kind of strains.
    • propolis


      Propolis Is considered one of the best anti-inflammatory and infection inhibiting essences in spagyrics. Thus, it's range of application is very large. Propolis possesses natural "antibiotic" qualities and actively fights bacteria, viruses, and fungi in a multitude of mainly acute diseases in the body. In addition, propolis supports the tissue regeneration and wound healing.

    • kapuzinerkresse


      Due to its high concentration of sulphureous oils, Tropaeolum possesses a natural "antibiotic" effect that makes the essence a valuable remedy for a multitude of infectious diseases. Especially infections of the respiratory tract, the kidneys, and the bladder react well. Tropaeolum prevents the bacteria and viruses from spreading any further, and helps the immune system to fight infections.

    When do you need medical assistance from a physician?

    Every recurring infection should be checked by a physician; when high fever (39°) continues for more than 3 days.


    From autumn until spring, three spray pumps a day. At the onset of symptoms, one spray pump every half hour.


    In spite of the great effectiveness of spagyric essences and the comprehensive consultation that you receive in our pharmacy, we would like to emphasize that the application and information about spagyrics doesn't replace any medical treatment or consultation by a doctor!

    Spagyrics for mood swings and troubled states of mind

    Dull state (uneasiness) - weak nerves. How to address mood swings with spagyrics.

    verstimmung 01Modern life demands an ever increasing quantity of capacity and ability of productivity. Daily professional life is a growing factor for negative stress inducers. If there are additional burdens in the private environment, the point where body and soul react with distinctive discomforts and symptoms is reached very fast.

    Often, you can also find a reduced productivity and work capacity since the power and energy reserves are challenged. This leads to a vicious circle that often leads to a depressive reaction, which can only be addressed through consequent intervention by a physician or psychotherapist.

    To avoid to even get there, it is important to do something for the body and the soul at the onset of the first symptoms of negative stress reactions, such as weakness of productivity, bad nerves, mood swings, and psychosomatic discomfort.

    Here, the spagyric essences from medicinal plants and mineral substances can be a valuable help..

    There is a multitude of spagyric essences that can help the irritated nervous system. If applied early and consistently, they can improve the capacity to overcome stress and reduce possible discomforts. One of the main remedies is the essence

    haferkraut 01


    which is produced from the taiga root. This remedy makes the body more resistant physically and psychologically, as well as more stable, so that it can better cope with burdens of any kind. Besides, Eleutherococcus supports the immune defense and prevents stress-induced weaknesses of the immune system.
    A similar effect is produced by

    Avena sativa

    The spagyric essence from oats. In contrast to the taiga root, it has a more calming effect and thus helps very well with states of agitation and irritation with sleep disorders. Avena sativa is also given at times, when the energy reserves have to be restored after physical or psychological stress or strain.

    An energetic restructure not only demands a stabilization of the nervous system but also needs to reinforce and stimulate the physical functions, such as blood circulation, blood regeneration, and the hormone system. An increase of blood circulation is especially increased by the essences:

    Ginkgo (ginkgo leaves) und Yohimbe (yohimbe bark)

    ginko 01

    Even though both remedies are mostly given to patients of an advanced age to equilibrate the effects of a worsening blood circulation, it has been shown lately that especially children and adolescents can also profit from these two essences. Nervous discomfort, conspicuous behavior such as learning and concentration disturbances, often respond well to these remedies.

    Yet during midlife, when the hormone production is slowly decreasing, two other essences are of major importance:

    Angelica archangelica

    the Essence from the Erzengelwurz and


    from  Meisterwurz. Both remedies possess reinforcing, invigorating, and regenerative qualities, they stabilize the nervous system, and regulate the function of the hormonal glands. Here, the Angelica essence shows a very good effect especially on women, whereas men receive more from imperatoria.

    eisenkraut 01

    If there are signs of an insufficient blood production (e.g. low iron level in the blood) then Verbena essence is of great importance.


    is very rich in blood regenerating minerals, and trace elements, and it is one of the most important remedies for anemia.

    Verbena also has an effect on the nervous system by improving the mood and thus, it can be helpful in states of gloom and melancholy.

    In this respect, the essence also supports another important remedy to improve the emotional state:

    Hypericum from

    johanniskraut 01St. John's Wort

    With this remedy, you can soothe a depressive emotional state and enhance the joy of living. Yet, if the symptoms of stress and anxiety are more in the foreground, spagyrics offers a valuable remedy to resolve emotional and physical stress.

    Piper methysticum

    Besides these vegetal essences, also certain spagyric mineral essences have a nerve stabilizing effect and can prevent the negative consequences of stress.

    Here, the main remedy in this regard is

    Kalium phosphoricum

    which is also known as Schüssler Salt and is considered the most important nerve remedy. It has a wide range of effects and e.g. helps with nervousness, exhaustion, depression,  loss of mental acuity, leraning disorders, memory loss, and nervous insomnia.

    With children and adolescents there might be an additional need for

    Calcium phosphoricum

    This salt is an important regenerative remedy for the growth period and at the same time it has a distinct nerve strengthening effect. According to the individual case, you can compose a suitable mixture of essences from these remedies that can be easily applied in a practical way through a spray.

    There have been good experiences with so called "energy sprays", which are special mixtures of specific spagyric complexes for women, men, and children. Through their contents, they cover a big part of possible causes for physical and psychological stress reactions with states of exhaustion. Besides

    erzengelwurz 01Eleutherococcus, Ginkgo und Yohimbe the "energy spray for women" also contains the essence Angelica archangelica, 

    as well as the mineral essence

    Kalium phosphoricum.

    The „Energy Spray for men“ has the same formulation, only here, Angelica is substituted by Imperatoria.

    Such an "energy spray" can also be helpful for children and adolescents, e.g. a mix of Eleutherococcus, Ginkgo, Yohimbe, Kalium phosphoricum, and Calcium phosphoricum.
