What would Hogwarts be without the potions? Not nearly as magical for a start.

Polyjuice, Felix Felicis, Skele-Gro, list is endless. Well, almost.

So how far would you go to make yourself a hot mug of Pepperup potion? Would you be able to sit through an entire lesson from Professor Snape? Or how about hanging out with Horace Slughorn at one of his famous parties?

If you answered yes to both those questions, then it’s probably pretty obvious you’re a dedicated wizard (or Harry Potter).

Now you just need to get to grips with the recipes and you’ll be brewing up a Confusing Concoction in no time!

And if you don’t know where to start, don’t worry! We’ve printed out 4 guides to making your own magical mixtures and all you have to do is find the ingredients.
