Every child loves to make potions —  foul-smelling mixtures of mud, soap, plants and anything else you can find that makes a mess.

Here, you’ll learn to make proper potions — healing creams that you can use on your own cuts, bruises and sunburns — and those of your friends and family!

Making these potions is a lot of fun — I’ve done it with my daughter.  And it’s even more exciting to use them.  So do have a go at making them.

SAFETY FIRST: Making these potions involves heating up liquids on your cooker — and should only be done with an adult who is helping and present.
