Alchemy Lab

The Alchemy Lab as it appears in the Alchemy Lab extension of the Hearthfire Homestead (in this case, the home in Falkreath Hold).

Potions are consumable items in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that produce temporary effects on the Dragonborn. Potions can be created at an Alchemy Lab using ingredients and the Alchemy Skill.

For information on non-created potions — those which appear in vendors' inventories, loot, and so forth, and are not made by the Dragonborn — see Potions (Skyrim).

IngredientsEdit

Main article: Ingredients (Skyrim)

Potions are made from ingredients found throughout Skyrim. The ingredients must share at least one effect in order for a potion to result from the mixture. If the Dragonborn Alchemist has not done much alchemy, potions can be created by the trial-and-error mixing of random ingredients. If they have done a lot of alchemy, they can select the desired effect in the Alchemy Lab menu and mix the ingredients presented in the following submenu.

Alternately, eating an individual ingredient will allow one to learn one of its properties (or more, if the Dragonborn has invested one or more points in the Experimenter perk). This allows the selection of the desired effects in the Alchemy Lab menu without the use of trial-and-error combinations.

List of EffectsEdit

Potions can have one or more effects depending on the ingredients used to make them. The following is a table of all the effects that can exist in potions with the ingredients used to make that effect. You will need ingredients.

Using this table: The easiest way to make potions using this information is to find your desired effect, select an ingredient on hand from the list, and find ingredients with compatible effects.

Created PotionsEdit

Note: This section (and the following "Poisons" section) is probably most useful for new characters who don't want to waste ingredients experimenting with alchemy.

Each of the tables below contains the ingredients to make the potion listed above it. Shared secondary effects are included in the tables. The target effect and unique effects (those not shared with others on the table) are omitted to make it easier to see the shared effects.

You can scroll down and find each effect (or use the table of contents provided at the top of the page), but it may be easier to use the browser's "Find" function to type in either the desired effect or the ingredient you want to use. The latter method, applied to an ingredient, is likely the most useful for creating three-ingredient potions.

For each ingredient's locations, stats, and other information, click its name to go to its page.

Multi-effectsEdit

Combining ingredients that share the same alchemical effects creates a potion or a poison with multiple effects. This also increases the potions value.

  • One of the most created multi-purpose potions (and least used), is made by combining Wheat + Giant's Toe + Creep Cluster or River Betty. It makes a potion/poison with three effects and, prior to the Hearthfire add-on, was the single most expensive potion one could make. In addition to being a good way to make money, it is also a great way to increase the Alchemy skill quickly, because the skill increase is directly proportional to the value of the potion created. The effects are: Damage Stamina Regen + Fortify Health + Fortify Carry Weight.
  • A well-known multi-purpose potion is the Creep Cluster + Large Antlers + River Betty. However, the ingredients are more difficult to obtain, as merchants do not stock antlers. The effects are: Damage Stamina Regen + Fortify Carry Weight + Slow.
  • Another useful potion can be made with a Beehive Husk, Bear Claws, and a Hawk Feathers. The result potion will include Fortify Sneak, Fortify Light Armor, and Fortify One-Handed skill. It is a very useful potion for an assassin.
  • Restore Stamina, Restore Magicka, and Restore Health are the most commonly occurring effects on alchemical ingredients. Combining ingredients to produce multiple effects is therefore easier if one of the said effects is of the restore variety.
  • The most expensive potion discovered to date uses Histcarp, Jazbay Grapes and Salmon Roe. The result grants Water breathing, Fortify Magicka, Fortify Magicka Regeneration, and Restore Stamina. With correct perks and gear, one potion can be worth over 10,000 GoldIcon.
  • Using Mora Tapinella, Scaly Pholiota and Creep Cluster will grant a potion that has at least five effects.
  • Using Crimson Nirnroot and Nirnroot will grant a potion with four effects: Damage Health, Damage Stamina, Invisibility and Resist Magic. Since both are nirnroots, their effecs are shared.

  • If the Dragonborn has two Void Salts separately listed on the menu, they can make a potion with both of them and Giant Lichen, resulting in a potion of Weakness to Shock with Poison Damage.
