For alchemy I decided to make The Elixir of Life. Having searched the internet for recipes, I settled on two modern ‘wellness’ type ones and one that had been extrapolated by archaeologists from an 1800s bottle that claimed to be an Elixir of Long Life.

These are the two modern ones, I haven’t photographed the third as it took longer to make and didn’t look much different to the orange one below. Incidentally, these were both rather unpleasant, so I combined them both and made them into a Curry of Life instead, which was much more palatable and may have cured my husband of a cold. 🙂 Turns out it ironically doesn’t have much of a shelf life, so we didn’t get to finish it.
