The object of plant alchemy is to supplement forces lacking within the body, tempering energies and restoring balance, both physically and spiritually.
"Alchemy provides the perfect medium through which the state of perfection or harmonious balance can be gained." ~ Frater Albertus, The Alchemist's Handbook
