Prue and Piper with a counter full of potion ingredients

Creating a potion requires not only the proper ingredients but precise measurements and quantities of each ingredient. Potion Ingredients can range from a pinch of salt to a handful of pomegranate seeds to a Hemlock Root. In some cases, the ingredients can be very volatile and explosive and must not be improperly combined or used therefore Instructions for potions must be followed exactly how they appear in a magical tome, such as the Book of Shadows. Whether a potion is going to be used for Vanquishing, Summoning, Banishing, Disempowering, Empowering, or as an Antidote for infection, potion ingredients are an important, if not the most crucial, part of magical practice.
