“Health is not just the absence of a disease. It’s an inner joyfulness that should be ours all the time; a state of positive well-being.” ~ Deepak Chopra
My dear friends Paul Hardacre and Marissa Newell make the most deliciously health-giving spagyric herbal tinctures through their small family business Mare Maia.
To close out 2015 they are generously offering us one final sale, which they’ve dubbed the ‘DOUBLE HAPPINESS SALE’ . Between now and January 1, 2016 they have a special deal for their new spagyric tincture blends.
If you buy the Digestive Blend, Penang Blend and/or Anti-Inflammatory Blend, they’ll give you A SECOND BOTTLE OF THE SAME FOR FREE! So much love, care and thought goes into each batch of these tinctures, and I can attest to their efficacy. This is a great opportunity to stock up on some truly helpful tonics for your body.
Paul explains that a spagyric tincture ‘is an alcohol-based extract that utilises the Spirit, Soul and Body of a given plant. In alchemy, the Spirit of a plant is referred to as the ‘Mercury’; the Soul as the ‘Sulphur’, and the Body as the ‘Salt’.
In a tangible, physical sense these three principles of Spirit, Soul and Body manifest in the ‘physical vehicles’ of alcohol, essential oils and mineral salts, respectively.
A spagyric tincture differs from the usual herbal tincture in that it contains the plant salts that complete the full therapeutic profile of the plant in question. As such, alchemical products like spagyric tinctures are much more potent and intensified than basic herbal tinctures.’
I can certainly attest to the power of Mare Maia’s products, which have helped me enormously as I overcome late-stage Lyme disease.
Here are the New Blends they are offering:
A healthy digestive system is one of the cornerstones of well-being. Mare Maia’s DIGESTIVE BLEND offers the traditional Ayurvedic digestive remedy of coriander, cumin and fennel (or CCF) in spagyric tincture form, for the first time. The revitalising but mild blend of coriander, cumin and fennel is known to improve digestion, reduce gas and bloating, and detoxify.
Coriander seeds aid digestion, reduce bloating, and support optimal liver function. Cumin seeds stimulate digestive enzymes (referred to as ‘agni’ or ‘digestive fire’ in Ayurveda) and thus improve nutrient assimilation. Fennel seeds stimulate digestive juices, reduce indigestion, prevent gas, and address constipation. The blend of coriander, cumin and fennel also acts as a diuretic, which helps against water retention and cleanses the urinary tract.
According to Ayurveda, the blend of coriander, cumin and fennel is ‘tri-doshic’, which means that all three ‘doshas’ – or primary energies which govern our physiology – are in balance. This balancing effect helps to ensure that we experience good health.

Mare Maia’s PENANG BLEND combines spagyric tinctures of tongkat ali and coffee to offer an energy tonic inspired by the culture of ‘coffee-with-tongkat-ali’ encountered in Penang, Malaysia.
The many benefits of tongkat ali – including increased strength, stamina and muscle mass, improved workout recovery times, enhanced libido and mood, and reduced fatigue, lethargy and body fat – are complimented by the well-known stimulant effects of coffee.
These stimulant effects improve energy levels, mood and various aspects of brain function, including memory, vigilance (i.e. sustained attention or tonic alertness), reaction times, and general cognitive function.

This is a favourite blend of mine! Mare Maia’s Anti-Inflammatory Blend combines spagyric tinctures of turmeric and black pepper to offer enhanced action against muscular aches, bruising, joint inflammation and pain, and arthritis. It’s also a super treatment for lyme and fibromyalgia.
Black pepper enhances the effectiveness of turmeric. It does this via its key chemical, piperine, which helps make curcumin – the key ingredient of turmeric – more bioavailable.
Other benefits of turmeric and black pepper include powerful anti-oxidant effects and benefits to the digestive and respiratory systems.

All you need to do is order between now and January 1, and Paul and Marissa will match your order of any of these three products one-for-one. That’s Double Happiness! 🙂
