Healing Spells, Charms and Potions contains spells that are rather dangerous, such as sucking life out of plants or turning them into ravenous monsters.
The cover of the book is pink with a section of writing on the top. The two right corners of the cover are yellow. The spine of the book has two white strips. In Season 5, the strips are grey and the top one has writing on it. There is a blue fabric bookmark enclosed in the book.
In "Race Against Time," the book pushes itself toward Bloom as she is looking for a book to use to practice her healing spells. Later, she attempts a spell but ends up withering a plant. She is taken aback, but she tries again later with what she thinks is a purification spell, and ends up turning another plant into a monster. Bloom takes the book to Faragonda who reveals that the book she brought to her is not in Alfea's collection and that someone planted it there for Bloom to use.
- In the 4Kids version, the book is called The Archaic Spells of Spheria.
