Spirit Molecule - DMT Molecule
N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT or N,N-DMT) – C12H16N2

Welcome to the Spirit Molecule Extraction Guide. Here you will learn what you need to know to begin extracting your own organic compounds such as DMT if you live in a country in which doing so is legal. You will find a list of all the supplies you will need, as well as for instructions on how to get started.

Pleaste note: Extracting DMT is a conceivably illegal action in most countries, we do not support or condone illegal activities in countries where the law does not permit. This guide is for those who wish to extract legal organic compounds for research and educational purposes only, as well as for those who wish to carry out the operation regardless, with the intention of providing educated advice in order to reduce the risk of harm.


DMT, also known as the Spirit Molecule, is one of the most powerful psychedelics on the planet known to man, it is produced naturally in many species of plant and many mammals roaming the earth today, including humans. That’s right, your lungs (and theorised your brain) are producing it right now, your body is producing a Class A substance! The issue is controversial, but it is also debated that the release of natural DMT is a factor in out-of-body experiences or spiritual states of mind.

Much like other classic psychedelics such as Psilocybin (Magic Mushrooms) and LSD, DMT is a molecule that mimics serotonin, a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in the human body. The DMT molecule has the ability to bind to the 5-HT2A receptors in the brain, this gives it its psychological effects which can be beyond anything words could ever describe! The 5-HT2A receptor is known to play a role in areas of the brain linked to self-awareness, emotions, high-level cognition and introspection.

“When smoked or injected intravenously, DMT causes a very rapid, very intense psychedelic experience which lasts a few minutes. Users report the feeling of being ripped from their bodies and thrown through space at incredible speeds. DMT produces intense visual and auditory hallucinations of otherworldly landscapes, hidden dimensions and god-like beings. It often produces deep introspection in its users, allowing the revisitation of past memories and providing a fresh perspective on life.”

DMT can also be ingested in the form of the ancient psychedelic brew Ayahuasca, which is drunk in traditional healing ceremonies throughout South America. This experience is significantly different from that of smoked or injected DMT, lasting several hours rather than several minutes, and often causing vomiting and diarrhoea. Despite the relatively unpleasant sounding experience, ayahuasca has been associated with a variety of therapeutic benefits, including the treatment of depression.

Below we have provided a simple guide to help you on your journey to becoming self-sufficient. It will guide you through how to successfully carry out an organic extraction.


To start your extraction operation you will need to gather a few items. Some you can find here in our store, everything else you can find in your local department store or on eBay if you prefer to shop online. Once you have gathered all the necessary supplies you’re ready to move on to the next step.

Tip: When referring to “organic compound”, this can be whatever it is you’re extracting, such as Mimosa Hostilis root bark if your organic compound is DMT.


  •  Fume Mask, Safety Goggles and Gloves
  • Grinder or Blender that is capable of crushing ice
  • Glass mixing jar – with a wide mouth and tight-fitting lid
  • 4 x Glass Jars with lids (Jam jars will do)
  • Coffee Filters
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Freezer
  • Pipette
  • Eyedropper


  •  Mimosa Hostilis*
  • Water
  • Lye**
  • White Vinegar
  • Naptha***

Spirit Jar XL

Spirit Pot

Spirit Jar

Spirit Box XL

* This is your organic compound, if you are extracting DMT it will be Mimosa Hostilis
** Lye is also known as Granulated Sodium Hydroxide
*** Naptha is the same thing as lighter fluid



DMT is illegal in many countries, but the legality of the plants that contain DMT works differently. In many countries, it is still possible to order DMT containing plants online. There are constant new findings and plants with high DMT content being discovered, so keep an eye out for new appearances. Here is a list of many plants that contain DMT, many of which could be available through online vendors in your country.

The Mimosa hostilis root is the most commonly used plant matter for extracting DMT and it is what this guide is based on. However, the extraction process will still work with other DMT-containing organic materials – simply adjust the quantity of your starting material based on how much DMT is present in the species of plant you are using in place of the Mimosa hostilis.

Mimosa hostilis root bark can be purchased online from various vendors, however, restrictions may apply in your country on DMT containing plants so do make sure you check this first or you may risk your package being seized on delivery, although this is not always the case and many have reported successful delivery in their country.

The Psychotria viridis plant contains DMT and is used in traditional ayahuasca brews. It is also known as Chacruna to indigenous peoples and can be purchased online through various vendors.

If you have the patience, you can grow your own DMT-containing plant from seeds, which are often not regulated to the same extent as plants. An example is Reed Canary Grass seeds, which can be purchased online in many countries.


Once you have gathered all the necessary supplies and prepared your work area you are ready to begin. We have divided the extraction in to 4 steps you should follow in order. Its worth having a read through the whole process once fully before beginning your extraction operation. The steps in this process are as detailed below.

Once you are ready to start go to Step 1, good luck on your extraction operation and remember, the most important thing is to ENJOY yourself!

Spirit Molecule DMT Extraction Guide - 4 Steps to Extracting DMT


In this first step, you will be preparing the organic compound and extracting the DMT from the plant. The amount of each ingredient you need will depend on how much plant material you have.

For 50g Mimosa Hostilis bark, you will need 750ml Water and 50g of Lye.

First thing is to cut and then blend your plant material until it is as fine as you can get it – wear a mask to avoid breathing in the powder. Once your plant material is as soft as you can get it, slowly add your Lye to your Water, mixing until dissolved, in your mixing jar.  NOTE: Lye is extremely dangerous and can cause chemical burns and should be treated with care. NEVER add water to the lye, always add the lye to the water and do it SLOWLY. Neutralise any spills with vinegar. Wear gloves and safety glasses.

Once your lye is mixed in with the water, add your powdered plant to the jar, tightly close the lid and shake thoroughly for 1 minute, then leave to sit for approximately 15 minutes. After 15 minutes shake it again for about 1 minute and let to rest for another 15 minutes, do this 4 times and on the last shake, let the jar sit for 1 full hour without further shaking.


After completing Step 1, you have successfully extracted the DMT from the plant matter. It is now time to transfer the DMT into a solution we can later make a clean extraction from, for this we will use Naptha, also known as lighter fluid. Going by the ratios we have been using so far, for this step, you will need 50ml Naptha.

Take 50ml of Naptha and slowly add it into your mixture from Step 1. Put the lid back on tightly and give it a subtle mix by turning the jar around, you don’t want to shake the jar too harshly as this will make the separation more difficult. As the Naptha swirls around inside the jar it is pulling out the DMT molecules, be gentle and give it swirls in different directions. Once you have done this for about 1 minute, set the jar down and allow the two layers of liquid to separate, you should notice the naptha sitting on top of the black mixture. Once your two layers have separated, repeat the above step a further 2 times.

Once the layers have separated after your final agitation, use your pipette to slowly remove the top layer (clear naptha layer) into one of your collection jars. This contains your DMT. Try to avoid taking any of the darker liquid from the bottom layer, this layer contains lye and plant matter, which you don’t want in your final product.

When the top layer is removed and stored in your first jar, close the lid and set it aside. Take another 50ml of Naptha and repeat the above step. Remove the top layer after your final shake and store the solution in your 2nd jar, secure the lid tightly and repeat again for the 3rd jar. On the 4th pull, allow the Naptha to sit in the jar for 24 hours, during this time give it as many mixes throughout the day as you can. This will ensure you pull out as much of the DMT from the plant as possible.

Once all of your jars are filled with clear yellowish liquid, place them in the freezer for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Well done for making it this far, you are almost there. During this step, we will extract the DMT from the crystalised naptha solution. After completing this step your DMT is ready. You don’t have to carry out the 4th step, however, we highly recommend you do, as this will ensure a cleaner yield with fewer impurities.

Remove your jars from the freezer, you should see white/yellow crystals stuck to the inside of the jar with the naptha liquid still in soluble form. Open the jars and pour the liquid naptha through a coffee filter into a larger 5th jar and close the lid, the coffee filter will catch any loose DMT that flows out. Do not throw your naptha away.

Next, leave the jars with the lid open near a window to allow the remaining naptha to evaporate. Give it a good 2 hours to be sure. Once all the naptha has evaporated, use a scalpel or plastic spatula to scrape off all the dry DMT from the jars. Don’t forget to combine what you collected from the coffee filter with the rest of your DMT.

Once you have scraped off all the DMT from your jars, you can pour the naptha from your 5th jar back into your 4 smaller jars and refreeze. This should give you a bit more DMT that was still in the solution.

Tip: Save your naptha and store it in the freezer once you are done. Your naptha will always have small traces of DMT in it and you can reuse it for future extractions.

You are now ready to move on to Step 4, however, this is not compulsory, at this stage your DMT is ready to smoke. See you in hyperspace!


During this final stage, we will further refine our DMT to make it as pure as we can. We will do this by recrystallizing the DMT one final time to wash out any impurities.

First, place all your collected DMT powder into a small glass container that has a lid. Then prepare your solvent, for this you can use Naptha again, however, Heptane is another option, which can work better. If you cannot get hold of Heptane don’t worry, Naptha will work just fine. You will need 25ml of solvent for each 1 gram of DMT powder that you have. Place your solvent in a separate glass jar.

Place both glass containers in a pan of hot water, do not heat the water once the glass containers are inside, you want the heat from the water to slowly warm up the solvent and DMT powder. Make sure you don’t get any water into your glass containers.

Use an eyedropper to add tiny bits of your hot solvent to the DMT powder. Swirl the glass container around and keep adding solvent until all the DMT is dissolved. Try to use as little solvent as you can get away with. Once all your DMT is dissolved, remove the glass container from the pan and let your dissolved DMT solution reach room temperature, make sure you have the lid on so your solvent does not evaporate. Now place your container into the fridge.

Once the solvent has cooled down, take it out of the fridge and move it into the freezer for 12 hours. After 12 hours remove the container from the freezer and drain out any remaining liquid through a coffee filter, let the residue to evaporate and scrape off your Spirit Molecule.

Safety Tip: Your solvent will give off flammable fumes, so DO NOT use a gas stove or have open flames around.

See you in hyperspace!

Can DMT really allow people to perceive another dimension of reality?

DMT is illegal in most countries and we don’t condone breaking the law or using DMT outside a legal and traditional context. If you do decide to take DMT, make sure you research its effects and risks. This guide is only for those living in countries where DMT extraction is legal and should not be misused.

DMT is a very powerful psychedelic and should be treated with respect. You should understand how best to prepare for a psychedelic experience, and integrate it afterwards.

Be aware of your dosage! A recommended first-time dose of smoked DMT powder is 15mg.

When following these extraction guides, make sure to understand the process before you start. If you are using a DMT-containing plant other than Mimosa hostilis, make sure you are aware of the differences and adjust your procedure accordingly. Always wear rubber gloves and safety goggles, and a dust mask if you are grinding up plant matter.

If using lye (sodium hydroxide), avoid getting it on your skin, and always wear safety goggles. If you get it on your skin, wash it off with copious amounts of water (and ideally use vinegar too, if it’s within reach, to neutralise the lye). If you get it in your eye, run your eye under tap water for at least 20 minutes and see a doctor. If you spill a large amount, neutralise it with vinegar before cleaning it up. When adding lye to water, add it slowly and mix well.



If you follow the steps carefully and ensure you use good quality ingredients, your DMT should be safe to consume. If you do a poor job and not pay attention to detail your product could turn out impure and you would need to start the process over.

You cannot tell the purity of the DMT from its colour, this is in fact a myth – there are a many factors that contribute to the colour of the final product. Generally speaking, if your powder is whiteyellowred or brown, it is safe to consume. If it is green or blue, something has gone horribly wrong during your extraction process and you should discard of the DMT and start over.
