Posts Tagged ‘potion making’

A basic list of  equipment for potion brewing.
 Non- reactive pots;  that means stainless steel or teflon lined, 2 & 5 quart.
 Strainer
 Measuring cups  1/4-1 cup, pint and quart; plastic will do
 Measuring spoons
 Funnel
 Ladle 
 Non – wooden stirring spoon, Wood may look archaic and “Witchy” but steel or plastic avoids cross contamination
Heat source, such as a hot plate
Storage jars and bottles
Mortar and pestle
Now where can you get these things ?
Big Lots, Ocean State Job Lot, Family Dollar are good sources for inexpensive kitchen ware, Pier One for storage bottles and jars, and if you have access to an IKEA store, then you can find all of it.

I’m taking break from the Warding series  to do a post or two on the importance of  safety in the art of making potions and related mixtures.
So let me put on my Severus Snape hat and get started.
1: Do not use your cooking utensils for making magickal mixtures. This is both for ritual reasons (separating  the magickal from the mundane) and for safety reasons. (Some of  the materials are poisonous ) .
2: While I am all for “Green” Witchcraft,   if you can obtain new containers for your finished products, you can avoid cross contamination due to residue ingrained into the material of the container. Think pasta sauce in a plastic container.
Next time …… what you need and good places to get them.
