Kitchen Witchcraft's Peace Potion

This simple potion is my go-to thing when I need some peace of mind. I drink it, I bathe in it, I use it as a component in rituals. Given that it's technically a herbal decoction, it may also be labelled "tea," I guess, but due to the intended use I tend to think of it as a potion.



Ingredients


  • Lavender
  • Vervain
  • Lemonbalm (equal parts)
  • Water

Preparation


Put a pot on the stove and boil the water in it. When the water is boiling and bubbling, keep the heat on. Add the first herbal ingredient and reduce the heat so that the water calms a bit. Add a second ingredient, and further reduce the heat. Add the last ingredient, stir them together, and turn the heat off completely.
Cover the pot and leave it to infuse. For maximum effect, let the potion cool off completely before use. This is not strictly necessary, however, and for some purposes (such as baths) may be undesirable.

You may add chants, gestures, or other ritual components to the process as you add the ingredients. Or not. Whatever feels right to you.
