Pretty potions & poisons 

A faery witch info HERE
Potionology book story notes HERE

Jasmoon Butterfly's Apothecary 
 Jasmoon Butterfly keeps her apothecary upon a shelf in what appears to be a book.
This protects the potions from prying eyes and prevents accidents ie: accidental drinking





A faery witches apothecary

Jasmoon Butterfly had attended a meeting with the fae 
 using a little of the potion she had left for sight.
She was all but seven at the time the fae embraced her willingly
 as Jasmoon's heart was kind. 
Jasmoon cared for mother nature, well actually all living things.

The fae taught her many secrets of alchemy 
but they told her to never tell a soul of all the proceedures 
(be that any living thing not just humans).
Jasmoon promised and here she shares some of that fae
 world with you,but sadly not all ingredients are listed.

Some of the ingredients only exist in the fae realm.
Jasmoon is permitted to share some of that info with you.
The processes  also have a secret chant spoken while sealing the potion.
Of course Jasmoon can only tell you that the words as soft as ...
erm.... oh ..to quote the fae...a lovers breath (yea just like that) 
spoken and gently blown into the bottle.

The words are in Elvish, as that is the language the fae speak .....
Oh did you not know?
Whoops don't tell! That can be our little secret :0)




An Apothecary of Potions & Poisons :

PoTiOn LiSt :
  1. Henneth (hehn-ehth) means window : To see the fae (faeries) - A mixture of herbs  
  2. Megil (meh-gill) means sword: Protection and healing against Elf Shot (humankind)  
  3. Nor means above : All heal for the fae

  10. Vísi álfa is the ruler of all potions that include magic, it is a rare ingredient from the faery homeland. Even the fae do not in truth know what it consists of/how it enables such power in potions. They have knowledge of it through their recorded histories. The substance used in potions grows upon a rare fungi, like dew in hidden, dark places. It is said it does this to bring light into what would only be darkness. Hopes promise is its common name. This mushroom derived from the faes original home not the fairyland we are aware of today. Once it is said they grew in humankind lands and that we visualize the toadstool now as a type of symbol for the fae....In a way it is, but its not the correct shroom. At present Jasmoon has not been informed of the shrooms name but  Vísi álfa is the dew type residue that forms upon the shroom.
  11. Ælfwaru - a female guardian potion for the fae.

Nathron (nah-thron) means webmaster:  Unkindness to mother nature - hairy spider venom and sorry to say it fae poop (please note : no spider is harmed in the process) The fae said Jasmoon can reveal these ingredients only because humans might be kinder if they are made aware of what is in the potion prior to committing this crime. Jasmoon quotes from the fae directly: A horrid potion for a horrid deed. Simple as that!
  3. Athan (ah-thahn) means beyond: Unkindly/Unseelie Sidhe (bad faeries) - Banishment potion, sends them back to original source.

Vísi álfa is the ruler of all potions that include magic, it is a rare ingredient from the faery homeland. Even the fae do not in truth know what it consists of/how it enables such power in potions. They have knowledge of it through their recorded histories. The substance used in potions grows upon a rare fungi, like dew in hidden, dark places. It is said it does this to bring light into what would only be darkness. Hopes promise is its common name. This mushroom derived from the faes original home not the fairyland we are aware of today. Once it is said they grew in humankind lands and that we visualize the toadstool now as a type of symbol for the fae....In a way it is, but its not the correct shroom. At present Jasmoon has not been informed of the shrooms name but  Vísi álfa is the dew type residue that forms upon the shroom.

Athan (ah-thahn) means beyond: Unkindly/Unseelie Sidhe (bad faeries) 
- Banishment potion, sends them back to original source.


Note: The fae have many potions for humankind. 
Many years ago (ancient times not documented by humans) 
they befriended the humans that showed kindness. 
I guess you do not have to be a faery-witch to know how that ended. Some humans betrayed the faery kindness, 
knowledge and then became extremely hateful towards them.


They called the faery human friends 'witches,' 
but in fact they were 'wise-women', it is a sad tale best 
left to another day. The fae then went into hiding 
(visualize what we know as Avalon) 
being the kind beings they were they kept the books 
containing potion recipes for our kind in the hope 
that one day they can share this information once again 
...with us all. 
Jasmoon has tried humankind relations 
but it will be a very long time until total trust is resumed. 



Elvish written potion list HERE


The Faery Witch always has a portable carry case.
She places the potions from her apothecary that she requires inside.
She also encloses dried herbs and notebooks.
The faery witch apothecary carry case


 Herbs used for protection & healing -
concealed in the case side panels

Most herbs for potions are harvested at dusk:

Dusk



At a time that is not a time,

in a place that is not a place,

on a day that is not a day..








rose-water and marygolde water ; 











.


Some say - astro, fairy thrones can usually be identified 
without actually seeing the fairies...pondering thought...

Other ideas on how to see the fae are:




Jasmoon was informed that the green beverage
 we all know today as 'Absinthe' was actually faery wine.
Although the original was a produced a little different.
A fae befriended a human doctor,  
in Switzerland in the 1790's.
Sadly the faes trust was diminished by deceit.
The doctor marketed the faery wine, as an herbal elixir
as it  actually improves the cognitive function of the brain.

Luckily for the fae the human had to leave out 
a certain plant that was in place of Wormwood used today.
Due to the faes own variety : stjarna absinthium
not grown in humankinds lands.

However the human style of faery wine is quite potent.
Humans nicknamed the beverage 'Green fairy'
due to the colour caused by the sickness 
the fae felt upon human betrayal.

Another faes story goes as far back as biblical times,
(not long for them) when the fae gave the potion only, 
not recipe, to humankind.
It was. . .used in medicine and magic. . .
to rouse a languid appetite and stimulate digestion’. 
It treated ‘epilepsy, gout, drunkenness, kidney stones, colic,
 headaches’and worms.”
Humankind believed the faes spirit 
was captured within the bottle.

 Absinthe Recipe
1/2 Dropper full of Wormwood Essential Oil.* 
1/3 - 2/3 Bottle of Anise Extract (To taste)
1 tsp Mint Extract *
2-10 shots Ouzo* (To taste) - to replace missing ingredient

The fae poured their faery wine over faery  flamed sugar, 
Luckily the human doctor only came up with this recipe,
absolutely not faery sugar 
but close enough for humans to be happy.
(The fae use their faery sugar in the
 Ælfwaru - a female guardian potion.)

3 cups fine white sugar

1 tablespoon Vanilla extract (the good stuff)

1/8 teaspoon red food coloring

Glass container

Lay sugar on wax paper and sprinkle on the Vanilla; 

stir into the sugar till all mixed in.

Next sprinkle on the red food coloring
and incorporate in till sugar turns 'Faery pink'. 

Save in glass container,


The fae said that even though they speak with 
what sounds like an Elvish tongue
it is actually a language that uses hieroglyphs!!! Wow!
They explained that this form of hieroglyph is from their original source....
Where you ask.... oh that's for another time :0) 

Jasmoon was permitted to copy their alphabet
they use for human encounters, 
connections that last at least one whole year - 
(it takes some many years and that's if you were 
lucky enough to make initial contact). 
Jasmoon has been extremely blessed to have had 
contact over quite a long period of time..

However you are extremely fortunate too as 
Jasmoon has permission 
to share her alphabet sketches.
The fae are aware that You (yes you) are 
very, very, special person, 
kindness oooozes from your fingertips 
via the keypad right through 
to this page...amazing!
Hence being able to see the following sketches, 
sadly some can not - those those break the fae rules.
Please note: For those that can not see the fae symbols....naughty naughty! 
Jasmoon hears the fae stirring your IâNathron potion already!

Well enough of all that ...where were we, oh yes below is the faery alphabet,
Please remember do not give your knowledge to just anyone....
The fae gave permission to share but the symbols can only be shared with flowing, goodness :0) 

Here goes:

Faery alphabet
Here is a sketch Jasmoon created aged seven 
(a sacred number to the fae) 

Faery flower

It is via her first encounter with a fae of which appeared to grow from a flower...
As this is Jasmoon's interpretation please do not take the image in a literal sense
as to what a fae actually looks like. This is the imagery that Jasmoon witnessed
as the fae showed itself beginning to take shape. 
Hopefully one day you will may experience this encounter with the fae yourself  x


Below is a photograph of where Jasmoon first met with the fae...
At the age of seven Jasmoon used to call them 
the Gûl (gool) magic Gwaith (gwithe) people.

(could they be fairy mounds?) 
Sorry can not share exact location, faery rules.

Jasmoon butterfly then became a faery witch 
or a faery wise as the fae call her.
This is our ikkle secret...shhhhh x

I have really enjoyed your wonderful company, 
please come and visit again.
The fae wish you happiness and health, sorry they are not into wealth
that's one you have apply  ;0)


The fae said remember to empower yourself 
this is due to your beautiful kindness, giving and love.
love, peace & light
Trace
xoxo
Note: I used this translator so that I could translate the potions correctly via the fae to you
