Odd Wisconsin Archives: Love Potions

Love potions were popular among superstitious country folk and many druggists sold their own unique blend to help the love-lorn. Howard knew that much of this trade was created merely for thrills, though he noted that the majority of results seemed to be positive. This suggested to him that the power of faith in a medicine could at times be as effective as the chemical content itself.
