What is a Potion: a Spell in Liquid Form

Last Updated:


By Morningbird

A potion is any liquid intentionally prepared for its magical, healing or poisoning qualities.

A potion is basically a spell in liquid form and the term is also occasionally applied to alchemical elixirs and herbal healing tinctures and teas.

The word potion comes from the Latin potio meaning “drink”.
