The Gifts of the Magi is a Spagyric Preparation Consisting of a Proprietary Blend of the Alchemical Oil of Gold and Spagyric Tinctures of Frankincense and Myrrh. For pretty apparent reasons, I have called this formulation “Gifts of the Magi”, as Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh are the Gifts given to Jesus upon Eventide by the Three Magi.
This particular batch was started Astronomologically on Thursday December 22, 2022 using Yemeni Myrrh and both Red and Green Hojari Frankincense. The use of both Red and Green Frankincense was an Artistic Touch: it brought in the colors of the Christmas Season to this blend. The tinctures were allowed to macerate for months, vacuum filtered, and then had Salts added and allowed to react until its completion. We then performed a final vacuum filtration of the product to our standard of 2 microns. The finished Spagyric Tinctures were blended together, to which was added a 40+ year Vintage Tinctured Oil of Gold on Sunday, April 2, 2023.
I have found this blend to be particularly tasty, fortifying to the mind, calming to the nerves, and puts the general disposition in a state of ease. This Initiatic Creation is designed to rouse and activate the Potency of the three Philosophic Principles within each of us: Salt (Body), Mercury (Spirit), & Sulfur (Soul). In the Western Esoteric Mystery Traditions, the call to be Priest, Prophet, and King (Or Priestess, Prophetess, & Queen) corresponds to the Separation and Perfection of these three Philosophic Principles on an inner plane. The most exalted state of each Philosophic principle exists as an archetype within the subconscious mind: the Priestly Quality is that of the Spirit (Mercury), The Prophet Quality is that of the Soul (Sulfur), and the King Quality is that of the Body (Salt). As the story goes, IVSVS, Jesus Christ, the Living Embodiment of the Stone, was at birth gifted Gold, Frankincense, & Myrrh by Three Traveling Magi from the East.
Historically, in both the Eastern World as well as the Western World, these ingredients have been used for millennia in healing, mysticism, and magical practices, giving them a uniquely historical esoteric significance.
Gold is the Gift of Kings. It is an untarnishable metal - it does not corrode, and it has been deemed as the Metal that corresponds most to the Energy of the Sun. By including the Oil of Gold in this Blend, the concept is to energetically enhance the potency and effective distribution of Life Force and Vital Force within the body.
Frankincense is the Gift of Priests and it's a material that has been used at least since the time of Ancient Egypt for myriad purposes, though it is perhaps most well known for its use by Priests as a medium to Purify the Spiritual Energy in Temples, Cathedrals, and Churches. In nearly all Western Ritual Traditions, Frankincense is used in Ritual to Cleanse the space and to afford protection; this is because on an archetypal level, the volatile vapors both Overcome and Penetrate denser spiritual vibrations in the space. Frankincense has traditionally been used during birth and death ceremonies, for home clearings, and is still the most important incense used by the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches. It is of a very Priestly Nature and seems to help a great deal with the Spiritualization of space and mind. By Including an Essence of Frankincense in this blend, the concept is to be able to clear and purify the Philosophic Principle of Mercury.
Myrrh is the Gift of Prophets and it has been used for thousands of years, either alone or with Galangal, to induce visions. This Psychic Resin is traditionally Burnt while a decoction of the root is drunk - it has been noted that this causes visions that can provide clarity to future events or impart great wisdom from other worlds. Myrrh and Frankincense are often burned together in various Magickal Rituals that are used for bringing things into the Astral and/or Physical Matrix. Traditionally, Myrrh preparations have been used by Seers and Psychics of all sorts. It taps into the Psychic (deriving from "PSYCHE", or Soul) Vibrations of materials and offers prophecies and insight. Myrrh has been added to this blend to clear and purify the Soul as well as to potentize the Philosophic Principle of Sulfur.
As a result, the Gifts of the Magi is a complete blend to enhance the potency and receptivity of the Three Philosophic Essentials as they present themselves in the Physiology, the Channels of Life Force, and the Psyche. I've found it to be tremendously beneficial for use before and/or after meditations, prayer, ritual, ceremonies, laboratory work, etc. In my personal practice, I even consume it as a daily sacrament.

UPCOMING & NEW SPAGYRICS
The inclusion of Robert Bartlett's vintage Oil of Gold is what grabbed my attention on this formulation and alone makes this product worth its weight in gold. I use as a solar elixir in planetary magick rites and find that it also facilitates "rising on the planes" in an almost instantaneous manner.
The Gift of the Magi is an exceptional Spagyric. I found it to be incredibly wholesome and uplifting, providing a delightful experience. The product emits a pleasant aroma that enhances the overall ambiance and promotes a profound sense of calm and well-being. I was thoroughly impressed with its ability to integrate and harmonize the mind, body, and spirit. Having tried this product, I am eager to order more. It has undoubtedly left a lasting impression on me, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to others seeking a transformative experience. The Gift of the Magi is a true gem that deserves recognition for its remarkable qualities. Thank You!
