about untamed alchemy

Untamed Alchemy, the Process

Like all alchemy, untamed alchemy involves a process that transforms seemingly common — but often precious and sometimes rare — ingredients into something new, uncommon, and exceptional, much more than the sum of its parts.

Mortar And Pestle With Lavender Untamed alchemy also incorporates a curious, deliberate, optimistic, playful, organic, and engaged approach to working with nature’s gifts to create something exceptional and altogether new to transform and support one’s body, mind, and spirit.

Untamed Alchemy is wild and wise, natural and intentional, pure and simple, creative and magical, ancient and dynamic. Untamed Alchemy encourages one’s joyful endeavor to elevate, own, nourish, and refresh one’s life using blessings from the earth while avoiding the use of harsh chemicals, synthetics, or over-refined ingredients.

Untamed Alchemy also invites deeper engagement with the symbology, lore, archetypes, signatures, and history that inform every aspect of the new material’s source ingredients — from their color and shape to their alignment with deities and magical associations.

Untamed alchemy recognizes the relationship between all things and celebrates the immanent miracles around us, great and small; it acknowledges the energy in all things and the intention with which “everyday” ingredients can be creatively engaged and transformed into something even more precious, deliberate, and wonderful than its original parts..
