    I've experimented with grinding down organic egg shells to powder form; then use a soxhlet extractor to make my spagyric medicine. American alchemist Jack Glass suggested the elixir after a Swedish physician had great results with his patients. The story goes that the physician, after seeing very convincing results, became obsessive collecting eggs; even advertised in newspapers to ask people to bring him egg shells.

    Funny, no?

    When shopping for He[Ho] Shou Wu [also sometimes referred to as "Fo Ti Tieng"] be sure it has been processed [or DIY]:

    "During the Tang Dynasty, Lin Daoren wrote the book The Secret Recipes of the Immortals for Treating Wounds and Fractures (Xian Shou Li Shang Xu Duan Mi Fang, 846 A.D.). In that book, he described the processing of ho-shou-wu to enhance its tonic properties (processed ho-shou-wu is sometimes called zhi heshouwu to distinguish it from the unprocessed form, which may be designated sheng shouwu). The processing method is to stew or steam the ho-shou-wu in black soybean (heidou) juice for several hours (up to three days, depending on the devotion of the processor to this method) and then dry the roots. This is a technique that is still used today. The black soy bean juice is prepared by boiling black soybeans in water for about 4 hours; the liquid that is left after the cooking is poured off and the beans are cooked again with less water for 3 hours; the resulting extract is combined with the former extract to make the juice. About 10 kg of black beans are used to process 100 kg of ho-shou-wu roots. Black beans are traditionally attributed with the property of supplementing blood and essence, and prolonged cooking or steaming of the herb is associated with enhancing its enriching and warming nature. The alchemical version of this processing, which is similar to the recommended method for making processed rehmannia, is to repeat the stewing or steaming 9 times. Thus, after preparing with the black soybean (overnight) and drying, it is again prepared with black soybean on the next day, and so on, until nine cycles have been completed. This repetition of processing was questioned by Chen Shiduo in his book New Compilation of Herbs (Qing Dynasty), in which he felt that the repeated processing would destroy the quality of the herb. Today, the single processing is relied upon."

    The above quote was extracted from the article HO-SHOU-WU: WHAT'S IN AN HERB NAME? on this page: http://therootofthematter.net/cgi-bi...ootofthematter

    However, personally, I would purchase it from the following source [because not only it is "prepared" but it is also in a powdered extract form]:

    Hehe, I think it means to take back the grey color from aging hair. However, the name of this herb is translated from chinesse as "black hair Mr Wu". MAybe because there are no blond chinesse people.

    Thanks Albion for your information and the provider's links you offer!

    Hello Brennus,

    All the tinctures, made spagerically will purify your astral/etherical and even physical body of all the parasites.
    A tincture of Cinnorhoddon, or rose flower will kill or put out all spiders and scorpios out of the body, one can have some dreams of this occuring, and also some zips on the skin as purification process.
