These spells each have an intended function: good luck, warding off of fear, increase of love, cosmic consciousness, clarity. The materials within each vessel have specific properties for the realization of their purpose, following the order of sympathetic magic. When the objects are combined into their respective microcosms, they produce a cumulative energy that is greater than their individual essence. The mechanics and forces at play that produce the desired results cannot possibly be understood. All that matters is that the spells work, and they do.
To create these potions, Lazaros has drawn from the knowledge he has obtained from years of research and personal practice of folk magic, superstitious ritual, and esotericism.
