Anything from Macbeth:
In the poison'd entrails throw.--
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Fillet of a fenny snake,
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,--
Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witch's mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangl'd babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,--
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,


Also, fairy skeletons (tiny skeletons with or without wings), Dragon's blood, slugs, leeches, bezoars, virgins tears or blood, vampire teeth or werewolf teeth/claws

fairy dust can just be glitter. worms, they now have gummy worms that look like real worms. they have gummy eyes and gummy brains. theres also these weird looking mushrooms my daughter refers to as looking like brains. see if you can make bat wings out of cut and bent clothes hangers and glued on black pantyhose material. ghosts can be made from cheesecloth and homemade paste [flour and water]. there's recipes for homemade blood [look up in google]. find some dead butterflies and you can use them. spider, frogs, and lizards should be easy to find in $ stores. pumpkin seeds you can buy like sunflower seeds unless you still have a pumpkin around from halloween. you can find recipes in google on how to dry them. you can use an apple cut up in the shape of a head for your shrunken head. lots of people make apple head dolls. go to a craft store or walmart and see if they have any beeds in the shape of bones. i got some beads that are skeleton heads. frenchy could possibly help you with translations. sheepies 666 has some good ideas for labels there. noodles called bloodworms.

hallorenescene , thanks for all the help but i have aleready all that i mentioned in my initial post to make those bottles ,i am not missing the ingredients , i have fake worms used for fish lures , fake fishes used as fishing lures they look like sardines , i have bat wings , frogs , snakes , mushrooms , etc all those i have i also have the shrunken heads

only thing i am puzzled is how to make fire in a bottle for dragons breath , is their a small enough fake flame lamp that exsist that could fit in a jar ?

i love making new potion bottles & jars every year. I had a jar with toads breath this year - I used wisps of green spiderweb - you could use red/orange spiderweb for dragons breath.

I also squeezed a small rubber skeleton into an old JD bottle & filled it with water & made a lable 'shrinking potion' - just poured the water out at the end of halloween & can refill it next time.

i also had a packet of rubber worms & did the same with them - on the label i had 'pickled bloodsuckers'

i had 'mummy dust' (used cigarette ash!) & 'graveyard dirt' (compost)

LOL, I don't know why I didn't think of toad's breath (okay, frog's breath) and mummy dust - I have those labels on my potion bottles...d'oh!

I also have Wolfsbane, Deadly Nightshade and pickled spiders.

I'll try to think of more stuff tonight. :D

Cat's paws could work too, now that I think about it, or their tails or eyes. And lizard tails or lizard's gizzards (which is always fun for kids to say), powdered ogre horns (or any other monster you want to sub in) and magic beans.

i would love to make really neat labels in color , i dont remember who on this forum made some but they wore just amazing , any program suggestions i can use to make these that might have templates and be easy to use ? or use our own images ? programs that a free on the internet or a really good program thats worth spending the $ to make some ...

i also like the black and white labels that are aged with tea , both are very diffrent style .

Deadly Nightshade - berries
Eye of Newt - berries or whole black peppercorns

Ground fairy wings - flour
Moon dust - flour with silver glitter
Charcoaled slugs - burnt potato wedges
Love potion - red or pink liquid
Unicorn tail - long wig strands
Pheonix feathers - red and gold feathers
Clairvoyance Potion
Witch Hazel
Cod Liver Oil
Toad’s Wart
Snake Oil - cooking oil
Ogre Nose Hair - Wig hair
