A magical potion is a concoction of ingredients that have magical properties when mixed correctly.
Magic potions belong to healing, on the one hand, magical practice on the other hand, and, if you will, also to kitchen magic. It involves brewing or mixing any ointment, potion, or compound that has magical healing, or beneficial influences, either directly on the physical body or at a higher level. Aura-Soma, for example, acts on the aura, addressing various of our subtle bodies.
The Purposes of Potions
There are many reasons you may want to brew a potion. They can be drunk, used for healing, bewitching others, and also (although this is not recommended) for poisoning. Sometimes a potion can simply attract positive energies needed to perform a spell or ritual, and sometimes the potion can be an integral part of the spell or ritual itself.
Potions are so diverse that they can be applied to almost every spell and ritual in the spectrum of magic. Some potions are drunk; others are applied to the skin, used in baths, or used in spells. You can enhance nearly every spell by adding a magic potion, regardless of whether the spell requires it or not. If there isn’t a specific potion for the spell, then certain potions help draw in positive energies and, therefore, for powering up your spell and making your magical results more potent and evident.
Different Types of Potions
There are many kinds of potions, with love potions being the most famous and used. Sleeping potions are also relatively popular, and another favorite of the magic community is the healing potion, used to both benefit you if necessary and also heal others.
A collection of ingredients can be used in potions, ranging from everyday items such as cinnamon to the more difficult-to-obtain items such as a feather from a grey swan. Most of the time, more complex potions will require rarer ingredients. Also, these ingredients for more complex potions are likely to have to be prepared in a more complicated way to work.
The versatility of potions is enhanced even further because there are many different ways to apply them to the person or spell. For instance, the archetypal, traditional potion works by the user consuming it as a liquid. However, some magical potions are rubbed into the skin, and others can work by various other methods. There are no hard and fast rules that say how to use potions; as with many magical practices, it is down to the personal preference of the practitioner.
Using Potions in Spells and Rituals
Potions can be beneficial for a practitioner as they can serve to solve problems in your life. For example, in the case of love spells, you can use them to convince someone to love you or even help you to stop loving someone that is playing on your mind too much and interfering with your life.
In terms of healing, they can help deal with physical problems that may be holding you back from your working life and your spell casting. They can solve the physical issues that other people in your life have to ease suffering.
As you can see by reading this article, potions are incredibly diverse and have a wide range of uses and potential effects. Their main issue is that they can often be challenging to put together, particularly for novices, and that they can contain problematic ingredients to find.
However, these minor niggles are usurped by the tremendous benefits available to those who can produce the potion. Potions can solve so many personal issues that the ability to brew them is an invaluable skill for any practitioner of magic.
Ingredients for potions can be
- Herbs, plants, resins
- Essential oils
- Crystals (mainly in sprays and as gemstone water)
- Carrier substances (oil, alcohol, vinegar, water)
- Purchased items such as cologne, Aura-Soma, etc
- Edibles, Spices (for brews or magical food)
How to make a Potion
That’s how it always goes in the movies: the hero drinks something from a small bottle, and something happens (like shapeshifting, love suddenly ignites, or falling into a deep sleep). My potions are not quite as dramatic, but they have magical and healing properties.
Simmer all liquid ingredients in a cauldron (or fire-pot) first, then add the other ingredients and oils after the base has cooled. Stir the potion thirteen times while concentrating on visualizing what you are going to use the potion for. This is very important; you want to infuse the brew with the right energy. While preparing potions, you may want to burn candles. Use our candle magic chart to find the color that best corresponds with your wishes. In addition, you can say personal prayers, chants, or speak out loud about what you want the potion to accomplish.
When you have finished brewing the potion, strain it, and keep the potion in tightly sealed jars.
