“Magic potions” have been a part of Witchcraft lore for thousands of years.
In tales of old, Witches boiled Magic potions in big bubbling cauldrons…calling on the spirits to help imbue them with Magical powers.
Today, many beginning Witches wonder if there is any power in Magic potions at all. And some still believe potions are a part of the dark arts and are “evil” in some way.
4. Let’s see how Magic potions work…what is possible…and how they are commonly used by the Witch of today.
First of all, it’s important to reiterate that most Magical practitioners today follow the Wiccan Reed…or a similar set of beliefs. Anyone practicing Witchcraft is strongly advised not to harm anyone in any way…Magickally or otherwise.
The same goes for Magic potions of course.
For best (and safest results) Magic spells, potions, rituals, and other techniques should be used to influence positive change in the world… without harming any thing or anyone.
That being said, Magic potions can be used in a variety of ways to cultivate and release Magic energy. You can sprinkle them, drink them, anoint them, bathe in them, etc. They can also be used to absorb energy. Of course, most are not meant for consumption and could be harmful if swallowed. Make sure you know what you are dealing with, and how to use the potion.
In order to brew Magic potions that actually work, you’ve either got to have a proven, tested recipe…or be a skilled herbalist.
Additionally, it helps to know the lunar phases, astrological correspondences, and be proficient in the art of spell casting…using crystals, candles, incense, and oil.
Magic spells and rituals are used in the brewing of Magic potions themselves.
Planning is important…gathering everything you need, going over the recipe/directions/spell is critical to brew a successful Magic potion.
Keep in mind…as you are performing the ritual and creating the potion, it is important to charge the ingredients with your will, intent, and emotion. The more of yourself you put into the potion, the better your results.
Always use the purest and most natural ingredients you can. Especially the water you use. Use rainwater, spring water, or distilled water whenever possible.
Avoid using microwave ovens for potion brewing purposes. Keep it natural. Also, try to avoid the use of metal containers. Instead use pottery, glass, or enamel containers.
Heating over an open flame is also recommended.
Once your potion is complete, use it as quickly as possible as it’s Magic essence will fade over time.
Always spill them back into the earth when you are done with them.
A final word on how (and why) Magic potions work.
