The Essences of Time are Items in Oracle of Ages.[1]

Location and Uses

The Essences of Time are the eight relics that Link must obtain to help the Maku Tree and save Nayru. Each one is hidden in one of the puzzle- and enemy-filled Dungeons spread across Labrynna. When Link obtains all eight Essences, the Maku Tree gives him a special Seed called the Huge Maku Seed needed to enter Black Tower and defeat the evil Veran.
