Twenty-five potions well worth knowing by heart.

  • Ageing Potion
    • ages the drinker to various ages, depending on the amount taken.
  • Amortentia
    • the world's strongest love potion does not create real love, as it is impossible to manufacture or imitate love, just powerful obsession.

    • regrows skin over a wound.
  • Elixir to Induce Euphoria
    • a sunshine-yellow potion which induces a sense of inexplicable, irrational happiness upon the drinker, with occasional side effects of excessive singing and nose-tweaking (but adding peppermint counterbalances these).
  • Felix Felicis (also known as Liquid Luck)
    • a "molten gold" potion that makes the taker successful in all their endeavors, however, if taken in excess the potion causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence, and it is highly toxic in large quantities.
