These ingredients are two of my original ones in the magic potions kit that I use in my creative writing classes on the five senses. Any of my past students will assure you that mixing them in the wrong quantities can lead to rather . . . explosive results. As such, these are the two ingredients that I must constantly restock in quantity. Actually, I’ve taken to re-portioning them into smaller bottles to try and encourage everyone to use less!
This student from a past class used just the right amount of Een sugar and basilisk blood in his potion, but was over zealous with his dashes of mummy dust and sprinkles of acid. By the way, it’s impossible to get a magic potion stain out of ANYTHING.
