For open-world RPG games, potions are very common to find. This item will provide several effects that really help player finish the game. In Skyrim, you can also make alchemical potions. This time, I will provide Skyrim potion guides: how to make and the ingredients.
Skyrim Potion Recipe
There are two different subdivisions of potions.
- Potions that help by restoring health/Magicka/stamina, fortifying an ability or the effect of the ability, or otherwise benefiting the Dragonborn.
- Poisons, on the other hand, are applied to weapons and detrimentally affect the targeted character.

How to Get The Ingredients
You can find most of the ingredients in the Skyrim realm. Some only need to be picked, and some items can only be obtained by defeating bosses. Other than that, you can buy out all the alchemy ingredients from their respective shops and wait 48 hours for them to re-stock.
If there is a glitch, you can follow these following works with shopkeepers.
- Buy every ingredient.
- Then, save your game.
- Next, kill the shopkeeper.
- Load the save file.
- Later, repeat that and the shopkeeper will respawn.
Perk and Enchantments
Several things can help you in your concoction, by Perk and Upgrading. The Perk from the alchemy tree will give you the ability to make potions more easily and effectively. So you have to upgrade each branch.
- The Benefactor perk makes your potions’ positive effects 25% stronger.
- Physician boosts the strength of your restorative potions 25% stronger.
- Each rank in the tree will increase the strength of your resulting potion by 20% to 100%.
- Poisoner perk gives 25% extra strength to your poisons.
- Concentrated poison will let your poison affect a second time
- Purity allows you to remove the negative effects that certain potions inflict on you. But it also de-values certain potion combinations.
- Green Thumb allows you to save your ingredients which means you will have to grind less for your potions.
You can actually increase your potions in general by using enchanted gear. When you unlock the ‘Fortify Alchemy’ charm, you can place this in:
- Gloves or Bracers
How to Make Skyrim Potion
