Magick practitioners and ancient herbal healers use potions to achieve their aims. These liquid mixtures were used in attraction and love magick, to give people special abilities, to heal, or even to poison! Potions evolved into health tonics, aphrodisiacs, and nutritious drinks. These spells work like meal spells in that you need to ingest your spell to manifest it.
