Potion is an item added by Minecraft. It is created in a Brewing Stand and holds an effect that can be applied to any mob or player. There are three types of potions:

  • Standard Potions: The player has to drink this potion to get the effect.
  • Splash Potions: When combined with Gunpowder in a Brewing Stand, a normal potion will be transformed into a Splash Potion. This can be thrown at any player or mob to give it the potion's effect.
  • Lingering Potions: When combined with Dragon's Breath in a Brewing Stand, a normal potion will become a Lingering Potion. This can be thrown on the ground to create an effect cloud. Any mob or player that walks into this cloud will get the potion's effect, decreasing the size of the cloud.

Any normal potion can be extended in time by brewing it with Redstone Dust, can be strengthened with Glowstone Dust, or reverted into a different effect using a Fermented Spider Eye.


Potion has no known uses in crafting.
