Celestial Dew

Celestial dew
Celestial dew, enriched by the rays of the Sun and the Moon, is collected in dishes, in the Mutus Liber, attributed to Altus, 1677.

Celestial dew is condensed moisture with alchemical properties. Dew is considered a gift of heaven or the gods, sent down to Earth, and thus has a special purity. In Alchemy, dew gathered in the morning is Prima Materia for the process of making the Philosopher’s Stone.

Paracelsus used Dew in his medical treatments. He captured des on plates of glass under various astrological auspices, which he believed imbued themselves into the dew itself. He gave the dew to patients to ingest.
