Each magical tradition has its own relationship with oils and potions. From procuring the ingredients, to deciding what to include, to how the ingredients are combined, to how they are stored, to safely disposing of things once it has done its job.
It’s important to do your research before working with oils and potions, so look for books that explain them in a way that matches how you want to work with them.
These books can guide you through selecting the best ingredients to match your intention. They instruct you on the proper mindset while creating the mixture. They walk you through rituals and spells to correctly activate the mixtures.
Oils and potions are powerful, but so is knowledge, so make sure you have the information you need before proceeding.
