Alchemy is a branch of magic and an ancient science concerned with the study of the four basic elements, as well as the study of the transmutation of substances; it is thus intimately connected with potion-makingchemistry and transformation magic.1 Alchemy also concerns philosophy; alchemical literature is dominated by mystical and metaphysical speculation.1 The science dates back to antiquity,1 although there were still wizards actively studying and practising it in the twentieth century.2 A less well known branch of Alchemy is Spagyric, or "plant alchemy".
