Potion

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Any medicinal drink may be referred to as a potion. Witches, as the wise people of the villages, were very knowledgeable about the use of herbs and brewed potions as medicines to administer to the sick. The term can also be used for a drink of poison. Many herbal teas are termed potions; though, in fact, they are more specifically decoctions or infusions. In the past, and especially in literature, the use of potions is associated with love (or lust) magic.
