Mordor essences currently come in 3 variants: Dark, Empowered Dark, and Shadowed. All three can drop from mobs, and Shadowed essences have also been found in Rare Mordor Chests. They are all level 106, so require level 106 or higher essence gear. (An early quest reward is a level 105 pocket item, which cannot hold a 106 essence. There are higher-level pockets later in the quest lines.)
A Shadowed Essence box can be crafted by Jewellers, Metalsmiths, Tailors, Weaponsmiths or Woodworkers (No Cook or Scholar recipes). The recipes are single-use and not bound, and the essence boxes also not bound, so you can get a recipe and have someone else make it for you. There is no upgrading or recycling of essences at this point.
Here are the current essences:
Restoration (Incoming Healing)
* Not in box
Most Dark essences are about 2/3 of the Shadowed essence; Physical and Tactical Mastery are about 4/5. Empowered Dark essences are about 95% of Shadowed.
There does not appear to be a Dark or Empowered Dark essence of Morale, although the Shadowed Essence of Morale is in the box.
The essence called Healing is for outgoing healing.
Incoming healing and Light of Earendil essences can drop, but are not in the box. The incoming healing essence is called Restoration. All three Restoration essences are the same amount.
The Empowered Gleaming Essence of Light gives +14 Light of Earendil and can drop from mobs or be in a Rare Mordor Chest. The Glowing Essence of Lightgives +10 LoE and can drop from mobs.
