Oil of Gold

A true alchemical aurum potable is a rare and special thing, for people living in any age.   The power of herbs and their medicinal properties is well known to pharmacology and the public. However extracting the medicinal qualities of minerals and metals is an art still reserved to alchemy and the few, for various reasons.

A true alchemical oil of gold should not contain any actual gold in it.  The same is true of any metallic oil.  Some products out there claiming to be oils of gold are actually colloidal.  What is a colloidal?  It is a metal which is broken down into very small (nano) particles and put into a liquid suspension.  So when you drink a colloidal, you are actually drinking a metal.  This is not good for you, sometimes it is toxic; with the exception of iron and trace minerals we do not need these metals for survival.  If gold itself is consumed it is technically inert and would pass right through your body, so a bit pointless really.

In English we get the word “tincture” from Latin, which means the “colour”. In alchemy the colour or “soul” of the matter is in the tincture, this contains the consciousness or personality of the material. So here in the picture of the diluted bottled tincture, the colour you can see is the medicinal qualities of the gold, but there is no actual gold in the finished product. Stephanos of Alexandria said “Alchemy is the art of seperating bodies from souls”. So an alchemical oil will have the soul (tincture) of the gold in it but not the body (the gold itself).  The basic process is that we have to first open the gold to unlock it’s healing potential.  The gold is then made into a crystalline form and purified of any corrosives from the previous step.  Next, a special menstruum (alchemical terminology for a solvent) is added to extract the gold.  The preparation is then allowed to digest for several months.  A catalytic reaction takes place here, whereby the liquid solvent is imprinted by the chemical profile of the gold.  Finally the menstruum is separated from the oil and the oil is then circulated with spirits and rainwater.

If you want to test whether an oil of gold is a true oil (solution), or if it is a colloidal or a suspension you can shine a laser through it and examine the pattern of light – this in science is called the Tyndall effect, see here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Laser-Tyndall-Effect/

Gold settles out the bottom after digestion is complete.

Another important test on anything claiming to be an alchemical oil is to put a drop of it on a copper plate. If, over time, the plate corrodes it is not safe to drink. Some oils sold have not reached full maturation and can be unsafe. You can also test them with pH paper to be sure they are not too acidic or alkaline. Finally when a true alchemical gold tincturing process is complete, an alchemist gets his/her gold back because it is no longer in solution, and they can reuse it again many many times. You can see this in one of the final images, the gold has settled out at the bottom of the bottle after extraction.

In alchemy we seek to test and replicate not just physical creation of life like in science, but also the spiritual qualities inherent. We come to know through our work that mind and matter are inextricably connected – as we work on something it works on us, there are also many subtle levels where consciousness interacts with the physical. All physical things have unique qualities and signatures, and we utilise these in our alchemical Great Work, for our evolution. I would encourage anyone curious or doubtful to test this concept by doing the work themselves via this ancient and well trodden path.

Working with and ingesting gold connects someone with their own inner sun, that place we feel blessed, radiant, a source of light, glory and “ruling” our inner domain and external life too, for “As above, so below” says the Emerald Tablet of Hermes. Gold has a strong resonance with the heart as the Sun and gold exists on this correspondence, and whenever I take it, it feels as if my heart is beaming out of my chest with energy, power and satisfaction.
