BUTTERFLY PEA FLOWER spagyric tincture - alchemically enhanced plant extraction


Native to south-east Asia, BUTTERFLY PEA is an annual vine known for its exquisite, brightly coloured and edible flower. In addition to its many culinary uses, butterfly pea flower has long been recognised in Ayurveda and other forms of traditional medicine for its medicinal properties. Butterfly pea flower has been used as a ‘smart drug’ (or nootropic) to enhance memory, cognition and intelligence; as a calmative / anxiolytic to reduce stress and anxiety; and also as an anti-depressant, anti-convulsant and anti-inflammatory. It has also been shown to possess anti-microbial, anti-pyretic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, diuretic, local anesthetic, anti-diabetic, insecticidal, blood platelet aggregation inhibiting, and vascular smooth muscle relaxing properties. Butterfly pea flower helps to maintain healthy eyesight, due to the anti-oxidant proanthocyanidin which improves blood flow through the capillaries of the eyes. This improved circulation helps the eyes to adjust more quickly to changes in light and improves sharpness of vision. Butterfly pea flower has also been shown to be effective in preventing cataracts and glaucoma, treating retinal damage, reducing blurred vision and watery eyes, soothing inflamed eyes, and improving night vision. Another of the traditional uses for butterfly pea flower is to promote the growth of dark, lustrous, thick hair. The butterfly pea flower is able to combat hair loss and restore hair colour as it is rich in bioflavonoids (an ingredient in modern products that stimulate hair growth). Butterfly pea flower nourishes and revitalises not only hair, but skin also. The anti-oxidants in butterfly pea flower increase the collagen and elasticity of the skin cells, and so help to reduce premature wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. Traditionally, butterfly pea flower is considered an aphrodisiac for women. It is also used to treat leucorrhoea (white vaginal discharge) and problems associated with menstruation. In Thailand, where these flowers are organically grown, butterfly pea flower is better known as anchan flower.

SPAGYRIC TINCTURES offer a more energetically complete herb or plant extraction. These concentrated extractions contain the three essentials – that is, the body, soul and spirit – of the herb or plant, purified and recombined in an exalted medicinal form. The spagyric technique is part of the ancient initiatic tradition of alchemy – the Art that lies at the heart of the inner traditions of the West.

Ordinary herbal tinctures only partially utilise the curative powers of the plants from which they are prepared. Spagyric tinctures are made according to unique processes which ‘open’ the plant or herb and liberate stronger curative powers. The spagyric technique of confecting herbal remedies embodies another – more synergistic – way of considering Nature and its powers.



"Definitely my favorite of mine I won't live without! Used as a smart drug as it helps with memory, cognitive and intelligence while also assisting in the health of your eyes, helps anxiety and stress yet aids in skin care and hair loss and quite a few other ailments. I am much calmer at work! Obviously intelligence is one I ordered two this time!! Love it and hope it never runs out!!"
— Thanh Thibodeaux (Sugar Land, Texas, USA)

I've been taking their Butterfly Pea Flower tincture for a month or so now and notice a marked difference in the quality and thickness of my hair. Their formulas are indeed more potent than store-bought alcohol extracts. They're also very helpful in answering questions and concerns. Cheers!

“Anyone interested in alchemical spagyric herbalism MUST check out what Paul Hardacre and Marissa Newell are creating! I take the Mare Maia coriander / cilantro and turmeric daily! I will never forget tasting these for the first time! Transported me back to India and the power of true alchemical healing!”
— Craig Williams (Ayurvedic Acharya, Clinical Herbalist and Acupuncturist, and author of Cave of the Numinous)

“Turmeric, maca root and tongkat ali are my go-to tinctures, they work good for me and all the people I have recommended them to have been happy. I’m probably going to introduce myself to some new tinctures and explore the benefits of these natural medicines.”
— Glenn ‘Teddy Bear’ Sparv (#1 mixed martial arts welterweight in Finland, ranked top 100 in the world)

“I take Mare Maia’s turmeric and coriander-cilantro spagyric tinctures every day, based on my physician’s advice. In addition to these, I have enjoyed working with other types of tinctures you offer. Of late, I have particularly enjoyed your German chamomile – for me, it beats kava kava, when it comes to helping me relax and maintain focus, especially when I meditate.”
— Melissa Blythe Harrell (Austin, Texas, USA)

“Mare Maia’s garlic, goji berry, and turmeric tinctures are truly wonderful. The turmeric has improved my recovery after runs and other work-outs; my knees, prone to pain, feel great! It has also improved my skin condition, reducing inflammation and acne. Garlic and goji go great together as part of the inner alchemy of my Yoga and Tantra practice, not to mention the health benefits. Giving them a try was a great idea; I started to see results inside a week.”
— Purnacandra Sivarupa (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA)

“I use Mare Maia’s turmeric and tongkat ali spagyric tinctures and love them both. The turmeric is basically a cure for joint pain. The tongkat ali really gives me a boost for the hard workouts. Whether you are a pro athlete or just someone who likes to work out and be healthy, these products really help with all the nagging little things that come from intense exercise.”
— Ryan McKelvy (MMA fighter, Chiang Mai, Thailand)

“In the world of big pharma thank you Marissa Newell and Paul Hardacre for reigniting this ancient art.”
— Dalia Mikhail (Brisbane, Australia)

“I take spagyric tinctures of graviola leaf, sage, chamomile, garlic, and goji berry. I have found that a combination of all these in rotation two times per day yields the best results. I take garlic, goji and graviola in the morning, 10 drops each in juice. Then garlic, sage and chamomile in the evening, 10 drops each in juice. Normally, by this time of year, after rains and humidity, I would have succumbed to a progression of colds by now. This has not been the case this year, so the main function of all these in combination seems to be helping boost the immune system.”
— Aye (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

“I’ve been enjoying a cocktail of spagyric tinctures from Mare Maia over the past few weeks including garlic, sage, goji berry, German chamomile, turmeric, and coriander-cilantro. The most definitive improvement I have found is an increase in energy levels and general well being. Also the anti-inflammatory properties of the turmeric have noticeably helped with my back pain. Thanks Paul Hardacre, Marissa Newell and Balthus for all the effort that goes into the extraction process and by bringing a little alchemy to Chiang Mai!”
— Aaron Faulkner (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

“I have been using your tinctures for few months now, but as an energy intuitive guide I am very sensitive to the pure and natural and enjoyed your tinctures and their healing powers from the start … Your great presence is felt in your force to expand and grow and provide what once was your own alchemy [work] in your private laboratory to a valuable healing power that many people can enjoy. Anyone who tries your tinctures will enjoy the same movement of expansion and healing that you bring into them … May people discover your gift and add this valuable alchemy product to their life.”
— Shelly Sharon ((Modena, Italy)
