You can stop worrying about that by learning how to make a Healing Potion in Minecraft. This simple yet powerful component provides you instant health as soon as you drink it. Moreover, it can also act as a weapon if used smartly. So, let's dive in and figure out everything you need to know about this multi-purpose Healing Potion in Minecraft.

How to Make a Healing Potion in Minecraft

In this comprehensive guide, we'll cover everything you need to know about the Potion of Healing in Minecraft, including its basics, uses, and how to create it. Don't skip any segment, as each one contains valuable information about this powerful item.

What is a Potion of Healing

The Potion of Healing is a very unique potion in Minecraft. Its main purpose is to immediately restore your health and recover your lost hearts. But you can also use it on the undead mobs like zombies to cause damage to them. These double effects make it one of the most useful potions in Minecraft.

Expanding on its properties, the Healing Potion instantly restores your health by 4 points (2 hearts) at level one. You can double the amount by creating a Potion of Healing II that restores 8 HP. But there are only two levels of this potion so you might have to make more than one bottle of the same.

How to Find Healing Potion in Minecraft

While learning how to make a healing potion in Minecraft is quite easy, you still have to get its ingredients to do the job. Luckily, the game allows you to skip all of that by providing two bottles of this potion in the End ships of the End dimension.

You can use our easy guide to find an End City in Minecraft that spawns right next to the ship. Then all that would be left for you to do is visit the spot and collect your rewards. Though, considering the dangerous mobs around the area, you might want to carry a diamond sword for extra protection.

Items Required Make a Potion of Healing in Minecraft

Here's the complete list of items that you must collect to make a Healing Potion in Minecraft:

  • Glistering Melon Slice,
  • Blaze Powder,
  • Nether Warts,
  • Water Bottle (preferably 3),
  • Brewing Stand

To begin any potion-making process, you first need to make a Nether portal in Minecraft and travel to the Nether dimension. There, you have to find a Nether fortress structure and check beneath each staircase until you find Nether warts farms. This special plant is vital to create the base of your potion.

While you are in the fortress, you also need to find the hostile mob, Blaze. Killing a blaze gives you blaze rods that turn into blaze powder when placed in the crafting grid. Moreover, you also need to combine a blaze rod with three cobblestone blocks to create a Brewing Stand.

Make Glistering Melon Slice in Minecraft

Glistering Melon Slices are the main ingredients when it comes to brewing a Potion of Healing. There is a 7% chance of this item spawning inside the chests of ruined portals. But if that doesn't go as planned, here's how to craft them:

1. First, you have to look for melons that spawn in the jungle biome, savanna villages, and woodland mansions. When you break the melon it will drop melon slices.

2. Next, create a pickaxe in Minecraft and use it to mine gold ore blocks. They usually generate between world height Y=-64 and Y=32.

3. Then, create a furnace and use it to smelt the gold ore into gold ingots. You only need one ingot while crafting a healing potion.

4. Then place your gold ingot in the crafting grid to break it down into 9 gold nuggets.

5. Finally, put your melon slice on the crafting table and then surround it with 8 gold nuggets. With that, your Glistering Melon Slice is ready.

How to Get Water Bottles

To use any potion in Minecraft you need to hold it inside a bottle. Follow these simple steps to make one:

1. First, smelt sand or red sand blocks inside a furnace to get glass blocks.

2. Then, combine three glass blocks using the following crafting recipe to create a glass bottle.

3. Once you have a glass bottle, you need to use it on a water source block to fill it up. Water is the essential base element that you add special ingredients to while creating a potion.

How to Make Potion of Healing (Instant Health) in Minecraft

With all the important ingredients in your bag, it's time to figure out how to make a healing potion in Minecraft. Follow these easy steps to get it ready in no time:

1. To begin, open up your Brewing Stand and place the blaze powder in the left-side cell. It will immediately turn into fuel.

2. Then, place the water bottles at the bottom of the stand and one Nether wart in the top cell. The Brewing Stand will slowly turn water into an Awkward potion. This potion in itself is useful but with the right ingredient, it can turn into some of the best potions in Minecraft.

3. Then, while letting the awkward potion stay in the bottle cells, place the Glistering Melon Slice in the top slot of the Brewing Stand. Within seconds, your healing potion will be ready to use.

Brew Potion of Healing (Instant Health II) in Minecraft

As mentioned earlier, the base Potion of Healing I potion only restores two health in your health bar. But you can upgrade it by brewing the potion with glowstone dust. The Potion of Healing II heals four hearts in an instant.

In case you are wondering, glowstone dust is quite easy to obtain. You just need to break glowstone blocks that spawn on the roof of the Nether. Unless you are using a silk-touch enchanted tool, the block will drop as dust instead of dropping itself.

Make Splash Potion of Healing

Now that you know how to make a Healing Potion in Minecraft, it's time to make the most out of it. For that, you must turn it into a throwable splash potion. Here's how:

1. First, find and kill a creeper to get gunpowder. They spawn randomly throughout the overworld.

2. Then, brew the gunpowder with your potion bottle in the Brewing Stand. When the brewing process finishes, the neck of your bottle will bend and your splash potion will be ready.

You can use the splash potion on yourself and your friends to get instant healing. But if you throw it on undead mobs like husks, phantoms, and more, the potion will damage those mobs.

Make and Use a Potion of Healing

You are now ready to start your next adventure with a quick healer and a secret weapon on your side. But this potion isn't the only dual-effect item in the game. If you know how to make a Bed in Minecraft, you can use it to sleep in the overworld and explode enemies in other dimensions. This simple mechanic makes beds as destructive as TNTs that an unsuspecting enemy can never survive. With that, it's time to get out there and start exploring the endless possibilities of Minecraft!
