How to Make a Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft (2023)

Have you ever ventured to the highest peaks of Minecraft or created tall structures only to fall off and die? That's a common nightmare that many players across the community share. But what if you could fall so slowly that it didn't have any effect on your health? That's exactly what happens if you use the Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft. It is a powerful consumable item in the game that allows you to eliminate fall damage. And that's not all that it offers. So, let's dive and figure out how to make and use a Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft.

Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft (2023)

Before you make the actual potion, it’s important to understand how it works and the stuff you need to make it. So, we suggest you first explore the basics of the Potion Slow Falling before learning how to make one.

What is a Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft

The Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft decreases the speed of a player or a mob while it is falling. Due to the slower fall speed, the target entity ends up taking no fall damage at all. This effect works irrespective of how high you are falling from. It is quite useful while exploring the mountainous biome of Minecraft including the new cherry grove.

Much like the other potions in the game, you have to drink the Slow Falling potion to get its status effect. You can also turn it into a lingering potion or a splash potion to spread its effects to other mobs. However, it doesn't affect any boss mobs or the Shulkers. But you can still use it on other players while playing on the Minecraft survival servers.

Materials Required to Make this Potion

You need the following items to make a Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft:

Water bottles are the base of all potions in Minecraft. So, you first need to either kill some witches or combine three glass blocks on the crafting table to get a glass bottle. Then, simply use that bottle on a water source to get a water bottle. Furthermore, we suggest you get three water bottles since each ingredient of a potion can be used to create three bottles of potions at once.

How to Make a Brewing Stand in Minecraft

Brewing Stand, much like a crafting table, is a utility block that allows you to craft potions in Minecraft. To create it, you have to combine three cobblestone blocks with a Blaze rod in the crating table. You can get the cobblestone by breaking stone blocks in the overworld.

Meanwhile, you have to kill a Blaze mob to get the blaze rods. This hostile mob only spawns in the Nether dimension. So have to make a Nether portal in Minecraft if you want to hunt Blazes. Though, make sure to get extra blaze rods so that you can turn them into blaze power to fuel the stand.

Where to Find Nether Wart in Minecraft

While you are in the Nether dimension, you should also get some Nether warts for your potion. They are a type of fungus that only grows in the Nether Fortress and Bastion Remnant. You can easily find farms of Nether warts by exploring these structures. Once you find the fungus, simply break it to pick it up. You only need one Nether wart to make a Potion of Slow Falling.

How to Get Phantom Membrane

A phantom membrane is the main ingredient that gives Potion of Slow Falling its powers. Here's how to get it.

1. First, you simply have to spend three days in the game without sleeping or dying in Minecraft. Then, a hostile mob phantom will spawn on the fourth night.

2. You have to kill the phantoms to get some phantom membranes. The easiest way to do it is by waiting for the sun to show up. Being an undead mob, phantoms start burning in the sunlight.

3. When the phantom is low on health, use a sword to kill it and pick up the phantom membrane drop.

How to Craft Potion of Slow Falling (1:30 Minutes)

With all the ingredients ready, let's learn how to brew the Potion of Slow Falling in Minecraft:

1. First, open your Brewing Stand and place the Blaze powder in the fuel cell on the left. It will automatically get consumed.

2. Then, place the Nether wart in the top middle cell of the stand. It's located right next to the arrow.

3. Then, place the water bottle in any of the cells at the bottom. You will end up with an Awkward potion which is the base for most potions in Minecraft.

4. Finally, place the phantom membrane in the top cell and let the stand brew your potion. Within seconds, your Potion of Slow Falling will be ready.

Extended Potion of Slow Falling (4:00 Minutes)

The default Potion of Slow Falling is perfect for surviving tricky situations. However, it only lasts for one minute and thirty seconds. If you plan on exploring the best Minecraft parkour servers then you must extend the Potion of Slow Falling to four minutes. Here's how:

1. First, go underground or to the caves of your overworld to find Redstone ore. It usually spawns between the world heights "y=-63" and "y=-34".

2. Then, use an iron pickaxe or higher to mine the ore block and get Redstone dust.

3. Next, place the collected Redstone dust in the top middle cell of the Brewing Stand. And then, put the Potion of Slow Falling in the bottom cell to extend it. But before you do that, you might have to refuel the stand with Blaze powder.

Make a Splash Potion of Slow Falling (1:30 Minutes)

Most players use this Minecraft potion only in the situation when they are about to fall or already falling. However, in such tricky situations, you often don't have the time to consume the potion. That's when a splash potion comes in handy. It is a throwable version of a regular Minecraft potion that can be used immediately.

Follow these steps to make a splash Potion of Slow Falling:

1. First, find and kill a creeper in Minecraft. It drops 0-2 pieces of gunpowder on dying.

2. Then, place the gunpowder inside the Brewing Stand and brew it with a Potion of Slow Falling.

3. Once your potion is ready, you have to throw it to use it. All the players and mobs that get hit by it will receive the Slow Falling effect. Though, you must use it on the head of the target to get maximum duration.
