The various types of Potions.






Yes (In Cauldrons)

First Appearance

Update 0.12.1

Potions are Items added in Update 0.12.1. They are created by combining various ingredients and Water Bottles in a Brewing Stand. When drunk or thrown, these Potions give the Player or Mobs Status Effects.


There are currently three types of Potions:

  • Drinkable Potions: The Player can drink the Potion to get a status effect for a certain duration of time. It will not affect any mob/Player around the Player, and the Player will retain the empty bottle for further use.
  • Splash Potions: The Player must throw the Potion, which will affect any Players/mobs within range of the splash, and the bottle will break upon hitting any mob or Block and give off particles.
  • Lingering Potions: The Player must throw the Potion like a Splash Potion, which will create a "cloud" of that status effect in a 3-block radius. The cloud lasts for roughly 30 seconds. The effect will be stronger the closer the player stands to the center of the cloud.

Some items that are used to modify potions:

Name Effect
Glowstone Enhances the Potion's effects

Gunpowder Converts a normal Potion into the splash variety
Fermented Spider Eye Corrupts the Potion effects (only in certain cases)
Dragon's Breath Used to convert a Splash Potion into a Lingering Potion


  • The Potion of Decay is exclusive to Minecraft.
    • It is also the only potion in the game that cannot be brewed.
  • Witches, which were added in Update 0.14.0, utilize Potions to attack Players and to heal themselves. 
  • The Glowstone Potion Modifier cancels out the Redstone Potion modifier and vice-versa.
  • Potion Effects (Status Effects) were added in Update 0.11.0, but only three of them could be obtained legitimately.
  • A Splash Potion of Weakness and a Golden Apple are needed in order to cure a Zombie Villager.
  • Trying to put two different Potions into a Cauldron will make both Potions (including Water Bottles) disappear.
  • Bug: In Update 0.14.0, if the Player switches to another potion while drinking a potion, the potion which they were drinking changes into the potion which was tapped on.
    • This can be very useful for replacing unneeded Potions with useful ones.
