Preparation of potions in Minecraft

Prepare the Rare Potion.

Once you have all the chemical equipment ready, you can start assembling the bottles that will contain the powerful concoctions of the future. Follow these steps to begin your magical journey.

-Put your potion holder in your favorite place in the laboratory and open it.

-Fill each crystal bottle with water and put them in the slots at the bottom of the machine. As you can see in the picture below.


-Put enough Blaze Powder in the top left corner, because this will increase the magic power.

-Take the Nether wart carefully and put it on top of the machine.


Your rare potions are ready. The water bottles are now called “Rare Potion”. This is the basis for practically all other potions. Therefore, whenever you want to make a potion with positive or negative effects, you should have some Rare Potion at hand.

Basic formula

Almost all potions have the same base and are prepared in the same way: Rare potion + fire powder + special ingredient. What varies is the “special” ingredient that will give effect to our infusion.


In some cases, specialized potions are combined to make others more powerful or with different effects. This is the case with the invisibility potion.

In this particular case, the night vision potion is used, with the addition of a fragmented spider eye.

Prepare the speed potion:

Rare potion + fire powder + special sugar ingredient

The result, in our hands our first special potion. Its effects are “positive” as they give us a higher attribute: 20% speed.

How to have night vision:

Put a rare potion on your magic shelf and add the special ingredient, the Golden Carrot, plus the vital Flame Dust.

As a result, your night vision potion is ready to use and defeat any mob in the thickest darkness.
