Alchemy is known to have its origin in ancient Egypt, but exactly where it comes from is hard to say. But we can find traces of alchemy in many countries and cultures worldwide. For many thousands of years, alchemy has been a part of humanity as the true science, but during the industrializing, alchemy has slowly fallen into oblivion.
The fact that alchemy has been seen as suspicious humbug is actually not very hard to understand. The ancient authors to the old scripts, books, and texts that were written, often hid their messages behind symbols and codes. This was made for a simple reason so that the knowledge would not end up in the wrong hands and would only be deciphered by the adept of pure heart. Only the wise and open-minded was seen as worthy to carry the keys to unlock nature. This made the alchemist understand how body, mind and soul were ultimately connected and how the extension of life would be possible. But the alchemists were worried that the knowledge would end up in the of the greedy, where it could be used for evil means, power and control.
So instead, the obscure and coded texts become of non-interest for the modern western man, who together with the globalizing and industrializing made huge progress in science and knowledge. Our modern science split off from spirituality and focused solely on the physical side of matter, and only on what could be observed and measured. In many parts of the world, alchemical knowledge is still a big part of science, herbalism, and astrology. Many natural herbalists and people of traditional cultures say that western and modern science has forgotten a very important part of the knowledge of health, the relationship between matter and consciousness.
