Druid Dream Potion
This potion is a boon to someone needing to evoke dreams to help foretell the future. The spice combination contributes to an increase of intuitive sense–clearing the head so it is more receptive to dreams and/or other messages during sleep. (In addition, it is especially nice when someone has a scratchy throat or “stuffed-up” upper respiratory system. It is an offering that is usually gratefully accepted.)
