What is Alchemy?
“a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation and combination”
An ancient practice sworn to secrecy and filled with mystery, Alchemy was historically a type of medieval chemistry that focused on transforming ordinary substances into gold, ‘seeming like magic’ within medieval chemistry and tales. Since then, Alchemy has gained a rich history as it has woven into different cultures across the world and lives in the heart of traditional practices and sacred rituals. Rooted in the philosophy that everything holds spiritual properties, Alchemists attempt to purify ingredients, creating an elixir of mystery. They take something ordinary and transform it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot always be explained…
ESPA explore the beauty of this unexplained, mysterious philosophy, and take solace in higher concepts and deeper, spiritual journeys that humans seek for. In the current climate of uncertainty, people are hungry for a deeper sense of connection, with themselves, each other and some form of universe, the divine or spirit.
Inspired by the harmonising rituals of ancient Ayurvedic Healing, Chinese Medicine and Shamanic practices, this experiential collection takes you on a sensual journey of transformative textures and self-care rituals for holistic rejuvenation of skin, body and mind. As humans, we desire a greater sense of connection and compassion and as a direct response to this, ESPA have carefully formulated the new Modern Alchemy Collection.
