Latest file for v1.19.8: 1-click install

Adds potions and potion making process using cauldrons.

For now this potions can be made:

  • melee atack bonus
  • health regeneration
  • mining speed bonus
  • temporal stability restore
  • walkspeed bonus
  • class change

In creative inventory a few more potions are available but do not have recipes yet:

  • faster temporal stability regeneration
  • extended underwater breathing
  • safe fall
  • invisibility
  • throns (damage to attacker)

To make potions you'll need to collect ingredients and prepare a cauldron. Mod adds raw/dried version of vanila
flowers and mushrooms which are part of majority of recipes. Crafts for them and for cauldrons you can find in game handbook "H".
A list of ingredients, temperature and time needed for potion to be made you can find potion recipes book, which is also craftable.


At the time of writing 18/01/2023 Alchemy mod is incompatible with this mod

Mod uses textures/shapes of ExpandedFoods and Alchemy mods(cauldron, flask)
Also it uses parts of code from Alchemy mod.

Big thanks to Rejn_Bashag for the potion flasks.
l33tmaan for cauldron shapes, texture, code.
llama3013 for code for flasks, liquids, examples.
MOTOR_plus for ru translation



  • a ceramic mold for cauldron instead of grid craft using plates
  • drop potion with arrea effect

Seems like the potion recipe book is showing the wrong liquid icon for water base and honey base (for the potions recipes)
For example; The mining speed potion (which according to the recipe-json is water-based, shows honey base in the recipe book.

And for honey-based potions; The book displays the wrong liquid icon, it shows the same as for spirit based (the darkgreen-sluggish texture).

Finally, this is not that important (only for my OCD-brain) , but I feel the icons for the base liquids in the book should have the same texture as when in a barrel. I don't know if this made any sense, but for example the spirit base is black/brown when in a barrel, but dark/greenish in the recipe book.

EDIT: Also noticed that the brew in the cauldron doesn't change appearance after cooking is finished, still looks like the potions base liquid. If I pick it up and put it back in the cauldron, then it gets the correct appearance.

Wildcraft will be discontinued!! I don't recommend making this mod a dependency.

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Jan 15th at 6:25 PM


I plan to make wildcraft non-mandatory dependency, recipes need to be updated and some logic for herb/mushroom ingredients as well. Maybe during this week or next one

💬 rayray, Jan 14th at 1:20 PM

love to try but not going to until wild craft goes to 1.19 may have issue with new plants being added 

💬 Arimil, Jan 11th at 12:24 AM

OK I did some testing and this option doesn't do anything.

💬 Arimil, Jan 10th at 7:29 PM


I see a config option for disabling forgetting potion 'forgetingPotionWorks', does this currently do anything? I dug around in the code and it seems the answer is no, I was wondering if I need to change this to enable the potion.

💬 osari, Dec 13th 2023 at 9:22 PM

@SoloBlood According to the Alchemy mod page, they are incompatible with each other.

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Dec 2nd 2023 at 5:54 PM


I asked for permissions from llama3013 and l33tmaan to use assets, if that was your question

💬 SoloBlood, Dec 1st 2023 at 3:32 PM


This mod looks awesome,Thank you.  I see this mod barrow assets from other mods that I am using. How does it work with the current Alchemy mod?

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Nov 23rd 2023 at 10:08 PM


The page will need some update after return to cauldron block, I'll take a look this weekend probably

💬 Phoenicius, Nov 15th 2023 at 3:01 PM

The guide book page is no longer working after version 2.2.11. I actually meant to post this a while back, but I forgot. 

potions page

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Oct 31st 2023 at 7:14 AM


cauldron has it's own blockEntity and recipes/handler, I don't see a suitable way now to use expanded food cauldron and do not break everything with harmony patches and workarounds (even if it would work somehow)

💬 Wandour, Oct 31st 2023 at 6:54 AM

maybe if this mod is compatible with expanded foods cauldrons because they already have a big and small one
and it might open big potentials 

💬 Phoenicius, Oct 30th 2023 at 9:40 PM

Ah! That appears to have done it. Thanks!


💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Oct 30th 2023 at 9:32 PM


hm, try to delete config in ModConfig folder and load world again

💬 Phoenicius, Oct 30th 2023 at 9:25 PM

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm still not able to place charcoal into the cauldron's, however. Here's a demonstration video:

I'm using right click and nothing else. 


💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Oct 30th 2023 at 9:15 PM


fixed in 2.2.11, potion kits were used when Lavoisier blocks needed them for potion making, removed now

💬 Phoenicius, Oct 30th 2023 at 8:03 PM

How do you make the weak mining potion? It says it requires charcoal as one of the ingredients, but I can't add it. I can add every other ingredient by simply right clicking the cauldron with it, but I can't add the charcoal in this way. I can only ctrl + right click to add it as fuel

Also, what do potion kits do?

The mod's description in-game says that the Lavoisier is used when making potions, but is that still the case? I can't find anything in the handbook about using the lavoisier to make potions.


💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Oct 20th 2023 at 3:10 PM


at the moment Wildcraft doesn't need Herbarium, as I see

💬 witchinda, Oct 18th 2023 at 6:14 PM

Does this mod still work with the Wildcraft transition to Herbarium (Herbarium and its modules in the place of Wildcraft)?

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Sep 26th 2023 at 8:18 PM


I didn't try

💬 Moon_Dew, Sep 24th 2023 at 4:45 PM

KenigVovan Is it safe to use alongside the alchemy mod?

💬 JunidO, Sep 5th 2023 at 6:17 PM

KenigVovan Thank you very much. 

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Sep 5th 2023 at 3:57 PM


I'll extend time for them (it was meant to be used together with CA hooks, but yea, seems not logical)

💬 JunidO, Sep 5th 2023 at 2:57 PM

Ingredients spoil before they're dried.

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Aug 29th 2023 at 6:06 PM


update effectshud

💬 DemonBigj781, Aug 29th 2023 at 6:00 PM
💬 SquareDonut21, Aug 8th 2023 at 10:04 PM

Theres a Bug, Water Base Potion Kit creates Honey Base Potion

💬 Moon_Dew, Jul 25th 2023 at 9:36 AM

Can I use this along side the Alchemy mod?

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Jun 19th 2023 at 4:14 PM

Cauldron was used in older version for potion cooking but now it is not needed.

💬 RuneScholar, May 2nd 2023 at 12:00 AM

What is the cauldron for?

💬 Mysticar, Sep 25th 2022 at 4:21 AM

It's fixed indeed! Thanks for the quick response KenigVovan

💬 KenigVovanAuthor, Sep 24th 2022 at 10:30 PM

should be fixed

💬 Mysticar, Sep 24th 2022 at 8:12 PM

This one duplicates all clayforming recipes for me.
