Hugo Erbe, a German biodynamic farmer, developed HE #8 and HE #9 as companion sprays to be used as offerings to the elemental kingdom who work to release the forces that enable a plant to root, sprout, grow, blossom, and more. HE #8 was originated to help “protect against the activities of opposing forces;” and HE #9 is intended to serve as “an expression of gratitude to the elemental beings.”

Note: It is recommended that one should not use the Three Kings Preparation unless one has first used all nine of the biodynamic preparations on the area to be treated.

Background Information
The Three Kings Preparation is one of a whole group of preparations created by Hugo Erbe (1885-1965) as a result of his lifelong work as a biodynamic farmer in Germany. He experienced a very close connection to the elemental world and sought ways of encouraging their beneficial influences.

The precious gifts brought by the three kings from the East to present to the Jesus child were: Gold, symbol for worldly wisdom, Frankincense, devotional offering to the Gods and Myrrh, symbol for the victory of life over death.

Ancient mystery wisdom has always held these three substances as symbols of awareness for the spiritual events taking place behind the outer physical phenomena. When prepared in the right way these three holy substances can also serve as gifts to the earth and to the elemental world.

How to use The Three King’s Preparation (method given by Hugo Erbe)
Take 5g each of:

  • Aurum metallicum D2 (Weleda) – gold
  • Frankincense (olibanum) (Weleda)
  • Myrrh resin

Grind these together in a porcelain mortar for one hour until a fine powder is attained. This powder is then thoroughly mixed with 8.33g of rainwater and 8.33g of glycerin (Weleda) in order to create an emulsion. These quantities will provide about 32g thick emulsion or paste. This preparation can be used immediately or stored for years in an airtight, non-metallic container in a dark, cool, dry place. According to Michael Hahn who has long experience with this preparation the best time for making the mixture is on New Year’s Eve 11:30pm-12:30am. This is a very significant time since according to Rudolf Steiner the transition from one year to the next coincides with a unique moment when the consciousness of the plant world and that of the minerals is united.

On Three Kings Day (6th January)  5cc/1tsp of the preparation is first dissolved in a little warm water (60 degrees Celsius) (140 degrees Fahrenheit) to stirring in about eight liters/2 gallons plus two cups of hand warm rainwater or pond water thoroughly warmed by the sun. A non-metallic container should be used and stirring should proceed for an hour in the manner described for the Horn Manure preparation. While stirring, the purpose for which the spray is intended should be held in consciousness. It should be sprayed out immediately after stirring during late afternoon (the cosmic-etheric inbreathing period) using a bucket and brush or knapsack sprayer as with Horn Manure. It should be sprayed outwards along the estate boundary at 5m/16.5 ft intervals. For each kilometer/3,280ft of boundary about two liters/0.5 gallons of spray liquid is required. We use the form of an outward-moving spiral from the central focus of the estate on which it was applied to bless the land and the elementals with this preparation.
