Love Potions 101

February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join botanist and witch Melissa Madara for this in depth look at the plants, potions and passions of love magic!

As the season of love approaches, join Catland’s co-owner and house botanist for an exciting look at the lore & legend of magical herbs for potions, attraction magic, and love charms of all kinds. We will look to the past for curious examples of love potions made from human bones, deadly broths for securing your beloved, and the strange and bizarre world of romantic magic from the ancient world to today.

In addition to looking at historical love magic, this lecture will also offer a rare look at love charms from Melissa’s own magical diaries, and provide some unique recipes & preparations for your own work at home. Join us as we fall in love with the folklore & magic of plants, and explore the power of these amorous herbs for ourselves.

All classes are recorded. A link to the recording is sent out to ticketholders the day after each event. These links stay active for 30 days.
