The main focus is on the ART OF THE APOTHECARY as mentioned in the KING JAMES VERSION BIBLE.
The mission of the Herbal Potion Lab is to address healing holistically from a Biblical perspective, as we believe it was intended to be from before the beginning of Creation, with The Holy Bible as main source of reference.
This website is in itself an offering of thanksgiving to the LORD, God Most High, Creator of Heaven and Earth. Genesis 1.

“Apothecary” verses in the KING JAMES VERSION:
And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.
And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:
And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.
Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.
SIRACH (ECCLESIASTICUS) 38:1-14
Written by Ben Sira in 200-175 BC
Concerning Physicians and Health
1Honour physicians for their services,
for the Lord created them;
2for their gift of healing comes from the Most High,
and they are rewarded by the king.
3The skill of physicians makes them distinguished,
and in the presence of the great they are admired.
4The Lord created medicines out of the earth,
and the sensible will not despise them.
5Was not water made sweet with a tree
in order that its power might be known?
6And he gave skill to human beings
that he might be glorified in his marvellous works.
7By them the physician heals and takes away pain;
8the pharmacist makes a mixture from them.
God’s works will never be finished;
and from him health spreads over all the earth.
9My child, when you are ill, do not delay,
but pray to the Lord, and he will heal you.
10Give up your faults and direct your hands rightly,
and cleanse your heart from all sin.
11Offer a sweet-smelling sacrifice, and a memorial portion of choice flour,
and pour oil on your offering, as much as you can afford.
12Then give the physician his place, for the Lord created him;
do not let him leave you, for you need him.
13There may come a time when recovery lies in the hands of physicians,
14for they too pray to the Lord
that he will grant them success in diagnosis
and in healing, for the sake of preserving life.
15He who sins against his Maker
will be defiant towards the physician.
