Magic reagents are items used by witches to cast spells.

Sims can obtain them in two ways:

  1. Craft them with a cauldron.
  2. Buy from the high witch of the Sim's alignment.

  • There is a mod at Mod the Sims that allows spells to be cast without reagents.
  • Reagents can be used for decorations or sold in a player-owned business if The Sims 2: Open for Business is installed. There is no controller to assign employees to make the reagents or other witch-items, however, regardless of witch-status; any reagents and other magical objects that are made by other lot residents besides the owner will have to be manually moved to the owner's inventory before they can be restocked.
