Potent Potable Potions and Wicked Halloween Brews

Updated on October 5, 2012

Wicked Brew and Potion Recipes for The Adult Halloween Bash

Before I give you a few recipes to concoct a magical witches brew for your Halloween bash, lets delve into the history of witchcraft and it's association with Halloween.

First, the word "witch" originates from the old English word "Wicca" (meaning healer). A witch was once considered a wise-woman, skilled in the use of herbs and they were considered valuable local healers. They used cauldrons (pots) to mix magical potions and to scry (look into the future on the water's surface). These powers to heal and read the future gave them a supernatural mystical aura that grew into the many legends and tales we still hear about today and associate with All Hallows Eve...

The Three Witches Cauldron Spell

from Shakespeare's Macbeth

Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.

Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined.

Harpier cries 'Tis time, 'tis time.

Round about the cauldron go;

In the poison'd entrails throw.

Toad, that under cold stone

Days and nights has thirty-one

Swelter'd venom sleeping got,

Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the cauldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,

Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,

Witches' mummy, maw and gulf

Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,

Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,

Liver of blaspheming Jew,

Gall of goat, and slips of yew

Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,

Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,

Finger of birth-strangled babe

Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,

Make the gruel thick and slab:

Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,

For the ingredients of our cauldron.

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Cool it with a baboon's blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.
