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, visualise 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.
Note: These are a collection of tips found in various places on the internet. While some of these are my own, they do not all belong to me.

Every time I return home from a trip, I feel a very dense, neglected energy lingering in and around my home. This is the method I use to completely cleanse my home or a room when something feels amiss.
🔮Turn off as many electronics in your home as you are able to:
Turning off as many electronics as you can in your home eliminates any waves that can interfere with the flow of natural energies. It also allows you to reconnect much better with the earth itself and recharge.
🔮Only allow natural light:
Artificial lighting tends to create a harsh environment, and can interfere with energies from the sunlight or moonlight.
🔮Light your favourite incense and candles:
Allow the incense and candles to burn down completely for the longest lasting effect. Meditate in the space they burn in and focus on bringing in positive energy and sending out the negative.
🔮Consecrate your tools:
Believe it or not, your own tools that you use in your craft can let off negative energies as well, especially if they have been exposed to it for a long period of time. They need some TLC to be used for their best effect.
🔮Clean your house:
Removing grime and grit, as well as clutter, really effects energies in your home. Doing so provides a much more open space to allow positive energies to radiate. Messy environments also reflect a “Messy” energy, causing a lethargic space.
🔮Work some basic spells:
The process of casting positive spells or creating some healing apothecary items works to lure in positive energies. By having a good-hearted intent, these energies will draw into the space naturally and on their own.
🔮Recharge sigils in your home or make new ones:
Let’s face it, even though we all tend to neglect this bit, sigils need to be recharged from time to time to keep their full effect. Roam your house and find any sigils (or wards!) that need some refreshing.
There are numerous other ways to cleanse your home or space, so please share! This full cleansing is a personal ritual of mine, and it does take quite a bit of time and energy so make sure you have a clear schedule! Blessed Be Dearies!
