"Love Potion" is the twenty-first single by Japanese recording artist Alisa Mizuki. It was released on August 21, 2002, as the fifth single from Mizuki's fourth compilation album History: Alisa Mizuki Complete Single Collection. The title track is a Japanese-language cover Christina Aguilera's "Genie in a Bottle" (1998). The Japanese lyrics were written by Takeshi Aida (相田毅?). The song served as theme song for the fourth and final season of the Fuji TV drama Nurse no Oshigoto.

The A-side and theme song for the drama was initially announced to be a cover of Madonna's "Crazy for You" (1985), however "Genie in a Bottle" ended up being the song Mizuki covered for the drama.[1] The said cover of "Crazy for You" subsequently went unreleased.

"Love Potion" is Mizuki's second single to be issued in CCCD format.
