Baldur’s Gate 3: All Alchemy Potion and Elixir Recipes

This list will guide you through all Alchemy Potions and Elixirs in Baldur's Gate 3!

Alchemy is a little complicated in Baldur’s Gate 3, so it’s useful to have a list of potion and elixir recipes available for reference. You’ll gain recipes through picking up ingredients and crafting components like Salts and Suspensions, but you can also find recipes from books. While information isn’t available for every potion and elixir yet, in this guide I’ll provide the ingredients and effects that are currently known for each potion and elixir mentioned.

All Alchemy Potion and Elixir Recipes in BG3

Alchemy can be used to craft elixirs and potions, many of which are Bonus Actions, that can give you an edge in battle. For an overview of how Alchemy works, check out my Healing Potion guide.

Some potions and elixirs are picked up rather than made. In this case, I’m including only potions and elixirs that are made from Alchemy, not those like the Gooseberry Potion that are the result of a spell, or Basilisk Oil that’s found in the world. For these lists, I’m using the Baldur’s Gate 3 Wiki as a reference given that there are so many recipes to find. The Wiki is full of useful information that has been great when navigating recipes and how to learn them.

And that wraps up the current list of Alchemy elixir and potion recipes in Baldur’s Gate 3. If more recipes are found, I’ll be updating this list. I certainly wasn’t able to find every recipe in my first playthrough, so I imagine there could be hidden recipes still lurking in-game. Until then, check out our BG3 guide hub for topics like how to Multiclass.
