Potions are brewable items that can give the player potion effects for an amount of time.

Obtaining

The empty bottle is returned when any type of potion is drunk.

Crafting

Three empty bottles, which are a type of potion, can be crafted using three pieces of glass.

Filling Bottles

An empty bottle can be filled using a water block or filled cauldron to create a bottle of water, another type of potion. It also uses up a third of the water in a cauldron, however it doesn't affect water source blocks.

Fishing

It is possible to catch a bottle of water while fishing using a fishing rod. This makes potions renewable.

Brewing

Main article: Brewing

Different types of potions can be obtained by brewing. This involves inserting a base potion, giving a fuel and an input, and receiving an output potion. The first base potion you need when you are trying to brew any potion is the bottle of water.

Usage

Enchanting

The empty bottle can be enchanted to create a bottle of enchanting.

Crafting Ingredient

The bottle of water is used in the crafting recipes of juices, which are lemonade, apple juice and orange juice.

Modifiers

Potions can be modified in three ways. The first is by adding glowstone dust to enhance the effect level. The second is by adding redstone dust to extend the duration of the effect. The third is by adding a fermented spider eye to corrupt the effect, turning it into a different one. The result of a corruption is usually the inverse of the original effect (for example: swiftness to slowness). Some potions cannot be modified in some ways, for example, the weakness potion cannot be enhanced with glowstone dust, and no potion can be enhanced and have an extended duration.

Base Potions

Base potions are potions that are created first to brew into other potions.

Name Use
Bottle of Water The starting point for every potion
Awkward Potion The base for all effect potions

(weakness can also be brewed directly from the bottle of water)

Thick Potion No use
Mundane Potion No use

Drinking

Apart from the empty bottle and potion item which both cannot be drunk, potions can be drunk by shift-clicking. They give off the slurp sound effect and also give back an empty bottle.

These tables show the effects of potions which can be drunk:

Unusable Potion

The unusable potion is an item simply called "Potion" that cannot be drunk or used in brewing. It can only be obtained if there is no "type" value given when using the /give or if that value does not exist.

Data Values

The id for potions is potion.

Data Tags

Different types of potions can be specified using different values for the "type" data tag.
