Greetings from PotionKit!
Made for kids who love mixing up magic, PotionKit collects beautiful potion making supplies and ingredients together into secret-compartment book boxes. Spices, oils and minerals are transformed into cosmically and mythological inspired magical potions, all bundled together as an unforgettable gift.
It all started with a Christmas gift for our daughter Io. Our criteria for the “perfect toy” is long: Something homemade. Unusual. Imaginative. Something played with for hours. Authentic. Beautiful. We knew she loved mixing things from the kitchen and garden. We are always washing out her latest “concoction” in the sink. What if she had something just for her love of potions? Something magical and surprising? Something she would remember in 20 years from now?
We started with a beautiful book box with a secret hidden compartment. Then we filled it with little bottles, spices, herbs, incense and flowers. Then tools of all types: mortar & pestle, tweezers, pipettes. Anything she would need to start bringing any spell to life. Her opening that book was such a delight. It stole the show for Christmas. First for hours, then for days and then weeks later - she mixed, mashed, stirred and bottled. Her older brother joined in, learning how to use carbon dioxide to pop cork stoppers out of their bottles. She and he collected new things from the garden, made teas and tinctures, and wrote down their own recipes. The magic grew far beyond that Christmas morning.
So, we decided this was too much fun and we had to make more. Now we are making the kits in small batches and to order. It’s been amazing seeing more kids playing for hours on their own, making discoveries with all their senses and keeping the magic alive for just one more year.
This weekend, PotionKit is generously offering the following gift to TWO lucky SouleMama readers:
The Alchemist Book Box is perfect for the earnest student of classical potion making. This is the mysterious book found in the corner of Grandma's attic. Looking like it travelled straight from the 1700's, the book box is covered in medieval scrolling embossed onto leatherette. The velour lined box is then filled with all the materials and tools for concocting a variety of essential potions.
