Magical Notes

Book of Shadows


Piper mentions from the entry on Nymphs that only certain types of magical beings can be turned into Nymphs. The entry itself is never seen and the content is thus unknown.



Piper and Phoebe are Teleported to the forest.

To Locate Nymphs

Paige was working on a Spell to locate Nymphs, based on combining the four elements: water, wind, earth and fire. However, because the Nymphs were on TV, she never finished it. But later, Piper and Phoebe finished it to find Paige. It teleported them to the forest where the Eternal Spring was. The Spell itself is never seen casting and thus unknown.

To Turn an Immortal Demon Into a Tree


Tull is transformed into a tree.

When Tull drank from the Eternal Spring, he became invincible and immortal. As a Vanquishing Spell wouldn't work, Paige suggested that they could cast a Spell to turn Tull into something else immortal, like a tree. She then improvised the first part of the Spell, and Piper continued to finish it.

Changing Seasons Changes All
Life Renews as Creation Call
Nothing is Immune, Everything Transmutes
So take this demon and give him roots.



Xavier is vanquished.

Vanquishing Potion

Phoebe brought a Vanquishing Potion with her to vanquish Xavier and Tull. Xavier still tried to attack Piper and Phoebe, but they dodged his stream of fire and Phoebe threw the Vanquishing Potion. She later tried the same Potion on Tull, but because he had drunk from the Eternal Spring, he was invincible and thus Immune to the potion.
