Fire Salts is an ingredient in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It can be used to make potions at an alchemy lab as part of Alchemy.


Fire Salts normally drop from enemy-summoned Flame Atronachs. They can also be purchased or stolen from some characters or obtained via the means listed below. Three fire salts can be found at Hjerim.




Note: Most of the purchased fire salts can be looted from shelves, but this will remove the ability to buy them.
