The Ambrosia Alchemist
~ OUR STORY ~
Illup Gravengaard, AMBROSIA founding herbalist, has been working close to with Mother Earth for a life-time growing up on the land of the ancient mound-builders in Ohio. 15 years ago, after months straight in the desert on the edge of Sedona, Arizona, Illup starting building bridges for wild plant medicine to be shared in delicious ways with people. Firstly, creating award-winning wild herbal kombucha (Best International Beverage Award) and getting featured on THE TRAVEL CHANNEL interviewed by Andrew Zimmern. Next, the work transformed further into making alchemical spagyric tinctures and highly therapeutic essential oils getting praise in THE NEW YORK TIMES and covered in magazines from VOGUE and WOMEN’S HEALTH in the United States to TRINITY internationally reaching publication out of Japan.
To further the unique promotion of plant wisdom & botanical soul empowerment, Illup has held space for years in spreading these wild medicinals in synergy with meditation and sound healing in what he has entitled; ALCHEMY CEREMONY. These are intentional group ceremonial circles that Illup has hosted from Sedona, up the west coast California to Oregon, Guatemala, Peru, Bali, New Zealand, and round again! The epitome of Illup’s work with the plants is an enlightening life-style line out now called AMBROSIA ALCHEMY based in the red rocks of Sedona. He specializes in herbal spagyric tinctures and pure essential oil blends aimed to assist in creating daily practices to help clients create an absolute nectarous life filled with peacefulness, juiciness, resilient health and pure passionate inspiration!
