Beccah Posted April 9, 2013 Share Posted April 9, 2013 Ionia The supremely glamorous Ionia the Enchantress was one of the few female magicians of her time, the youngest daughter of magicians Charles and Julia de Vere. Her specialty was Grand Illusion and she had a famously beautiful trick where she filled a room with a shower of glittering confetti by first starting with a lump of wet paper. The mechanics of her illusion involved filling an eggshell with dry confetti and crushing it while producing an ornate Chinese fan to send it swirling in the air, concealing the wet paper beneath in her palm. Our potion is an ode to her mysterious ways and includes an egg as well...a dessert recipe which was popular in her day: a pastry crafted of a spiced almond paste and egg mixture, swirled with raspberry jam. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.ALMOND ~ Fertility, stamina, masculine energy, business success, money, prosperity, wisdom, intuition, insight, talisman for successful and fertile marriage.RASPBERRY ~ Love inducing, aids in pregnancy discomforts, protection.
