      I guess that a potion is just a mixture of chemicals all together. So, yes there is a thing such as potions but scientists will call them reaction mixtures. On the TV and in films potions are often shown to be steaming or have white smoke coming out of them. These things can also happen when a scientist reacts chemicals together in the lab.
