here are just a few recipes / ideas:
SALTED CARAMEL AND PRETZEL
3 scoops vanilla ice cream, milk, caramel sauce, salted pretzels
for cleansing and positivity
MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP 🍫🍬
3 scoops mint ice cream, milk, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup for love and wealth, fortune
3 scoops strawberry ice cream, milk, crake crumbles, fresh strawberries. for friendship and young love

3 scoops vanilla ice cream, milk, mini marshmallows, crumbled graham crackers, chocolate syrup for domestic magic, and familiar bonds
BANANA CREAM PIE 🍌🍰
3 scoops vanilla ice cream, milk, 1 banana, ½ packet vanilla pudding mix for prosperity, protection, and happiness
A potion to open new financial opportunities and invite prosperity. All of the ingredients were chosen for their association with wealth. This recipe makes 1 cup of tea.
¾ tsp Jasmine Tea
¼ tsp Mint
A generous pinch of Basil
1 Blackberry (fresh or frozen; alternatively, a small bit of blackberry preserves makes a good substitute)
I suggest combining jasmine tea, mint, and basil in a tea bag or strainer to avoid mess, but use your preferred method of steeping.
Pour hot water over the herbs and blackberry. For optimum flavor, I suggest water around 180°. An easy way to achieve this is to boil water, then let it sit for five minutes before pouring it over the tea. I use the green tea setting on my kettle. This is, of course, optional!
Muddle (crush) the blackberry slightly to help release its flavors. If you’re substituting preserves, stir them into the water so that it fully dissolves.
Let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes.
Serve piping hot, or chill and garnish with additional blackberries. As you sip, picture your wealth blooming like a jasmine flower!
Imagine that you and your friend find a love potion recipe on the Internet, which is not real of course, but you want to try it. You drink one-half of it and just for fun, to see what would happen, you give the other half to Loki. To your surprise and shock the potion works and Loki is now following you around like a lovesick puppy. You find it really cute at first, but soon it starts to get annoying. You don’t get a single minute of alone time anymore. When you finally tell Loki to stop following you around, he laughs and says that the potion never really worked. He heard you making it and just played along. You feel really embarrassed about the whole situation, but then Loki confesses that he really is in love with you.
This recipe can go hand in hand with the Storm Water Spell I posted earlier. Blessed water is used in quite a few spells and rituals, especially ones from the Grimoire for the Green Witch. Anyways, lets get started!
Water in a cup/pitcher
Timing: Full Moon; Hour of the Moon, Mercury, Mars, or Sun.
Raise arms under the Moonlight. Recite:
I call upon Thee Great Lady of the Night, to bless this water I pour in Thy Light.
Pour water into bowl, add rose petal and hold bowl up in the Moonlight. Recite:
In this water doth shine Thy Light, that it be consecrated in Thy Sight. Cleansed and purified on this Esbat night, this water is blessed by Thy Sacred Sight.
Lift salt in the Moonlight. Recite:
Through the Lady hast all thing their form, taking salt in the waters and lands of the Earth. Through Thy Bright Light, I consecrate this salt to aid in my work.
Add 3 pinches of salt to the water.
Stir 3 times.
Then use mirror to reflect the Full Moon into the water if the light is not currently touching it. Recite:
By the light of the Moon, through the Power in Thy Tides, a portion of Thy Power now herein resides, that blessed be this water. By 3 times 3 this spell I bind, that it be cast with the power of nine. For as I will, SO MOTE IT BE!
Set down mirror and bowl.
Turn bowl 9 times desoil in the Moonlight. Recite:
With power gathered and sent within, this spell is sealed 9 times again, that adds together 9 and more, that with these 3 is 9 the core. SO MOTE IT BE!
Place water in a bottle with lid and store away from light.

Hufflepuffs are always trying to make things a little better than the last time. Tweak a potion recipe, innovate a tool, reorganize an entire system… “leaving something better than you found it” is a natural tendency.
Hi, I like your blog, and I'm new to potion making... I was wondering if you have a recipe for a concentration/focus potion? Thanks :)
So I got my books in the mail and I finally wrote the recipe ! I didn’t test it because, well, I didn’t have the time and occasion to do so, but I do hope it will work !
So, this is the recipe :
Potion for concentration/focusing
½ tea spoon cinnamon powder
some lemon zest
3 lilac flowers
1 tea spoon chopped rosemary
½ tea spoon caraway seeds
½ table spoon chopped spearmint
500 mL water
Heat the water till it’s just about to boil, Throw in all the ingredients (except the water of course, haha ! sorry.) and stir clockwise, visualizing a part of your energy flowing into the brew. Then lower the heat, let brew for approx. 10 minutes. Strain, sweeten if needed, and drink - and good luck for your studies and exams !
So I was feeling pretty crappy - one of those days where you’re just sad, feeling kind of icky because of it, with zero motivation for anything - so I decided to have a rummage in the cupboards and see if I could knock something up to make me feel better, and this is what I came up with:
1 Mug Apple Juice (love and healing properties)
Cinnamon, a good sprinkling (not only very tasty but healing, protection and love properties)
Mint, a few leaves (happen to have this fresh) (good for healing and strength)
A pinch each of basil (love and protection) and thyme (health, healing, sleep, love and courage) (these were dried from the shops not fresh)
Put all of them in a pan and simmer until the juice is hot and all the herbs have had a chance to infuse (it will smell great), stirring clockwise with hopes/the intent to feel better.
Been reading Viridarium Umbris lately, by the author Daniel Schulke. I’d really recommend it to any witch who wishes to work with plant or grove.
Above is a photo of my potions grimoire, in which i have added a lovely tea recipe that i found in the book. It is to be ingested during the sacred process of fasting, during which the practitioner creates a clean, empty, permeable atmosphere within the body, and as such makes of themselves a fit vessel for spirit.
• Oat straw
• Nettle tops
• Rose hips
• Clover blossom
• Peppermint leaf
• Ginger root
The ginger root and rose hips are to be brought to boil in eight measures of water. Reduce the heat, letting the mixture cook for a short while, after which the other ingredients are added and the pot is taken off the heat.
Let the whole mixture infuse for a half hour, after which the plant pulp is returned to the earth, and the tea consumed.
In regards to measurements, i simply play around with different amounts until i feel i’ve got it right. It depends a lot on the quantity of tea you wish to make. As the Wayfarer’s Tea is intended to be consumed as a sustenance during the act of fasting, i would create enough to sip on throughout the day.
Potion to ward off the suicidal demons who linger.
before I give you the recipe I made I’d like to tell you that if you are feeling suicidal, please do not hesitate to contact a hotline (number depends on your country) or an online hotline like imalive.com. They can offer you support and help. Also please seek help in your family and friends if you can and trust them enough. Stay safe, please.
So this is the recipe - I haven’t tested it on myself as I usually do because I am not feeling suicidal at the moment. I hope it will work. But please bear in mind that professional help is also needed, the potion is not a miracle cure.
- 500 mL of water
- 1 tablespoon chopped sage
- 1 tablespoon anise seeds
- 1 tablespoon bay leaves, chopped
- 3 cloves
- ½ tea spoon black pepper
- 1 tea spoon fennel
- 1 tablespoon peppermint
- ½ tablespoon rosemary
Heat up the water till it’s boiling, then reduce heating and put all the ingredients into the brew. Stir deosil (clockwise) and visualize energy flowing into the brew. Then let it stand on low heat for 13 minutes. Strain, and drink three days, before going to bed. By the fourth day there should be no potion left.
And please, anon, if you want to talk, come to my inbox. I’m always available.
