I have gotten the first round of potion bottles painted, glossed and labels (Paper bags) crumpled and dipped in tea, so now, I get to add the lables...I am at a stone wall with names for the potions. ( I have come down with the flu and punimonia:( so my brain isn't working at full capacity.) Any ideas?? I really don't want "cheesy" If I can help it. THANKS in advance! :D

Oh, here are what I have so far.
Bubotuber pus
Pepperpup potion
Wolfsbane
Veritaserum
Flesh eating slug repellant
Amortentia
Wart- cap powder
Aging potion
Beauty restore
Powder of Mandrake

Hey angelicdrkness, this seems like a cool idea! Sometimes coming up with the right names can be tricky, and of course it all depends on how "dark" or "light" you want to go with them (Ex: virgin's blood versus pixie dust) but from the names you have, it looks like you're in more neutral/mystical territory.
Here are few in the same vein, all from real plants:
Tongue of a Turnip
Adder's Tongue
Beggar's Buttons
Friar's Cowl

Those were my favorites, but those and more can be found on this website. I think it has just what you're looking for. But if you need any other suggestions, let me know! I've done my share of witch themed haunts, so I might be able to help. :D
