The Alchemist Potion Kit

Regular price $78.00

The Alchemist Potion Kit is perfect for the earnest student of classical potion making. Looking like it travelled straight from the 1700's, this is the mysterious book found in the corner of Grandma's attic. The book box is filled with potion recipes for "Lost & Found" or "Scholarly Success" and ingredients like "Ember Glow" and "Albedo of Snow". Learn about the history of the Philosopher's Stone and how to work with gold for everyday magic.

The book box comes in two patterns; select between either a richly colored "Magic Carpet" or a "Blue Tapestry" design. Both are gorgeous books made from a leatherette stretched over a wood frame and lined with velour flocking, closing with a magnetic clasp. All the potions and supplies come packed inside the hidden compartment for safe keeping. 

The Alchemist Potion Kit comes in three sizes with ever increasing amounts of treasures. All include The Alchemist Potions:

  • Deck of 15 tarot sized cards with recipes, ingredient histories and mythological learnings
  • 4 beautiful liquid potions in glass droppers
  • 3 dry ingredients in glass vials with corks
  • 4 teeny tiny mini-potion bottles to hold completed potions

Truly a dream gift for the busy Alchemist! This extra large book is around the size of a phone book. It comes with both The Alchemist Potions and The Epic Adventure Potions for a total of 30 cards, 8 liquid ingredients, and 6 dry ingredients. Along with the potions the book comes with supplies and tools, including an additional large bottle, more curios, and extra mini-bottles.

  • Ceramic Mortar & Pestle
  • Large glass potion bottle with a cork
  • 2 extra empty vials
  • Potion bottle necklace on a silk ribbon
  • Enchanted crystal spoon
  • 3-5 curios like feathers, crystals and found treasures
  • 2 extra sets of tiny potion bottles (for a total of 16)
  • Book is sized at 13 x 8.5 x 2.75 inches

    A deck of 15 unique cards comes with each set of potion ingredients. Potions and spells are rooted in age-appropriate traditional folkways, magical history (yes, the Philosopher's Stone is a real thing!) and growing emotional intelligence (like how to manage a thought that won't go away).

    Using their potion recipes and included ingredients and tools, as well as some simple household items like salt or honey, the recipe or spell is made.

    Most potions take several simple steps to complete, a wonderful exercise in following multi-step directions. Adult supervision is not usually required to complete a potion (and in our opinion, that makes the perfect toy).

    Then what?

    Potions are used in non-consumable ways. For example, it maybe droppered into the potion necklace or put on a piece of paper and left under a pillow. All require imagination and intention, which captures the spirit of keeping magic alive through childhood! Kids really can run faster and sleep better after using their potion.

    We have found that kids, once they have used their kit ingredients, quickly venture out into the yard and cupboards to come up with their own potions. This is the most exciting part! Kids use the potion kit as the starting point for even more imaginative and magical thinking.

     

     

    Ages 5+

    Small parts, glassware, spills and fine motor skills make potion kits unsuitable for children under five. 

    Potion and ingredient cards are written at a 3rd - 5th grade reading level, younger children will need help reading their cards. Recipes have been created with accurate herbal and mythological references - what a fun way to start exploring plant medicine and myths!
