Welcome back to my Inn. It’s a pleasure to see you again. A witch always shares his or her secrets with those who are intrigued in their craft. So let’s get right into getting a peep into my book of shadows.
How To Make & Use Potions
Potions are usually made with a liquid base of either water, milk, syrup, or other. Depending on the intent of the potion, a spell can be (ritually) recited over the cauldron or pot during the brew, while stirring either clockwise (to direct energy) or anticlockwise (can be used to reverse spells).
Unlike magickal tea, a potion can be either drunk on its own or a few drops added to another beverage. During the brew, visualize the intent of each herb or ingredient added and state its use. Afterwards, pour the liquid into a vial and use the potion within a span of one to three days, depending on the ingredients used. A potion can be left to charge overnight in the light of the moon to add more spiritual power.
