I'm going by what Ive read Hebraic scholars have written on the subject. The threat of a sorceress was the harm she could do, as far as "potions," ie herbal concoctions. Healing or killing/harming was supposed to be the provenance of YHWH and his priests, not coming from others, especially women!
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
