The Potion of Regeneration is useful in almost any dangerous occasion. When consumed, you’ll receive the Regeneration effect, which will rapidly cause your Health to regenerate over a short period of time.
You don’t need a full Hunger bar either for it to work. These types of Potions might be useful when defeating the Wither or Ender Dragon.
How to Make a Potion of Regeneration
Follow the steps below to Brew a Potion of Regeneration. If you already have a Brewing Stand and Awkward Potions, then you can skip ahead to Step 3.
Step 1: Craft a Brewing Stand
If you don’t already have one, you’ll need to craft a Brewing Stand. These are easily craftable, requiring 3 Cobblestone and 1 Blaze Rod.
The image above shows the recipe. You’ll need to place 3 Cobblestone alongside eachother, with a Blaze Rod in the upper middle slot. Once crafted, place the Brewing Stand down in your world.
Step 2: Craft Awkward Potions
Inside of the Brewing Stand, place 3 Bottles of Water into the bottom slots. In the top left slot, you should place your Blaze Powder, which will fuel the stand. In the top slot of the Brewing Stand, place some Nether Wart.
After a short amount of time, the Nether Warts will be infused with the Bottles of Water, giving you 3 Awkward Potions in return. Make sure to leave them in there.
Step 3: Craft the Potions of Regeneration
Now you should have the top slot of the Brewing Stand empty, with the 3 Awkward Potions in the bottom slot. Make sure the Brewing Stand still has fuel, and in the top slot, place a Ghast Tear.
You can obtain Ghast Tears from the Nether, and are a common drop from killing Ghasts. A good way to kill them would either be with a Bow and Arrow, or by using a Sword to shoot the incoming fireball back towards it. Just try to position the Ghast so that it isn’t above Lava, otherwise the tear will be destroyed.
Extending the Potion Duration
You can extend the duration of your potion easily. Leave or place them into the bottom 3 slots of the Brewing Stand. Add Redstone Dust to the top, and the duration the potion lasts will be extended from 0:45 to 1:30 minutes instead.
Turning it into a Splash Potion
If you want to turn it into a Splash Potion, it’s simple to do. With your completed Potions inside of a Brewing Stand, simply add Gunpowder into the top slot. Once the Brewing process has completed, you’ll have Splash Potions instead.
