When creature within range dies and possesses essences, you may as a standard action extract all essences that creature holds with a simple cast of this spell.

You can extract any essences from consumable items by beating a Spellcraft check that is equal to 15 + CL of the creator. An ethereal essence from a consumable imbued by a caster grants the caster an extra spell slot for that day. The spell must be the same as the spell from that scroll/potion. Failure destroys the consumable. That is, you can’t get an arcane divination essence from a scroll of identify. You may only have one such essence at any given time.

You can extract an essence from a curio by beating a Spellcraft check that is equal to 15 + CL of the creator. Certain circumstances may prohibit extraction; such as disintegration, massive damage, etc. Failure may result in damage to an area around the caster. Essences from Wonders or Relics cannot be extracted in this manner.
