Do You Believe that "Potions" Have Effects?

Well, I was surfing the internet and saw a striking ad that sells "potions". It made me recall a book I saw in a bookstore years ago that teaches how to make potions. It was written by Jaime Licauco, a parapsychologist in the Philippines. I also remembered my ex co-worker in a law firm claiming that potions do work since she has used one to get her husband. I forgot the formula though, all I remember were eggshells. I know our world is not like those in Harry Potter or other magical fiction films, but if potions don't really have some work, why would some people teach how to make it or at least sell a potion? Do you think potions do really have an effect when taken? What is your thoughts about potions?

Some of these potions are not as far fetched as you may imagine.They come from traditional remedies that have been used for thousands of years,different plants that people believed to have beneficcial effects on your health.Some of these plants have been scientifically proven to work such as willow bark which is used in aspirin and senna which is used in laxatives.

Potions are merely old fashioned concoctions of medicinal herbs and other edible ingridients. Back in the old days, there are apothecaries like in the Harry Potter movies. These apothecaries were the first versions of laboratories we have today. I think what you saw on the web are natural substitutes and are most likely to be bought by Hippies, hehe. There's really no harm done in believing in old remedies since they are natural and have no side effects. And don't worry about ingredients like toe of frog or eye of newt if you ever see them included in the list. They are merely codenames for berries or mushrooms or other herbs to keep the recipe secret. That's what Wiccans used to do back in the old days.
