The History of Potion Making

The History of Potion Making

In mythology and literature, a potion is usually made by a magician, fairy or witch and has magical properties. It is used for various motives including healing. Creations of potions and salves of different kinds were a common practice of alchemy and were commonly associated with witchcraft. ‘Glamorous’ comes from the idea of the ‘glamour’ that witches created to increase beauty through their magic spells and potions.

Those three words, Witch, Magic and Potions, have fascinated from the time humans first gathered together into tribes and villages. As with so many things, some people feared what they did not understand. But most people appreciated having a person available to them who had researched and experimented with the herbal gifts that nature provides, learning the properties and benefits, in order to help others.

Of course, not all witches have the same level of skill as others. The most talented and experienced created potions and salves that really worked. The others, not so much.

Our modern world of effective medicines and skin care cosmetics has its roots in the experiments and learning of those brilliant people. And what seems like magic, is actually what we now call science.

Just as in ancient times, it is not simply knowing the properties and effects of ingredients that is the key to creating the most effective recipes. A true Potion Master needs to be adept at combining the right ingredients, in the perfect amounts to achieve the best possible results. There is an art involved, a talent that only a few are gifted with. It means the difference between being a somewhat helpful hedge witch … and a talented and effective sorceress of beautiful, healthy skin.

Our decades of experience working in the natural skin care industry, taught us about ingredients, and about what works for real. We were curious and concerned that in many cases, products were only mildly effective (utilizing only a few common ingredients, with little creativity) and also, surprisingly expensive to the customer. We became even more concerned by the common use of chemical additives and preservatives that are unnecessary, if a product could just be formulated differently.

We decided to invent our own recipes and test them on ourselves and other volunteer humans. The results have been beyond even our own high expectations. Our Potions are complex and carefully formulated. We create them in small batches, by hand. Our potions work so effectively that you will usually see a difference in your own skin within just a week of use.

There is Magic in our Science, and Science in our Magic.

We are the Potion Masters.
