The Safe Haunted Lab

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake, 
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, 
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,---
For a charm of powerful trouble, 
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. 

~ Macbeth
William Shakespeare

Good reference material is important to any lab set up. And you can always use an extra hand for those little details that get away from you.
 Speaking of handy, a good magnifying glass is a must for that small print on bottles. You aren't getting any younger, dearie!

Keep a hand near your pets, to protect them from harmful toxins.

Keep all receipts to refill orders.

Keep all specimens bottled up. Loose specimens make a sloppy lab.

Safety demands you keep an eye on lit candles.

All bottled goods should be arranged alphabetically for quick spells. V,W, X etc.

A well stocked lab is a good thing......

Get out of the lab and engage in social activities.

Put on your party hat.  All work and no play makes a crabby witch.

Keep your lab stocked with a variety of hostess gifts for the season. A little candy or an appetizer ( see below) make nice presentations. A little ribbon and you're ready to go!

Home is where the lab is.
