Minecraft Potion of Healing Brewing Guide

Before you starting brewing a Potion of Healing, you will need to collect a few items:

  1. Blaze Powder
  2. Water Bottle
  3. Nether Wart
  4. Glistering melon slice
  5. Brewing Stand

How to get Blaze Powder


To get blaze powder, you craft it from blaze rods dropped by blazes, hostile mobs found in Nether fortresses. If you’re new to Minecraft, you can enter the Nether by crafting a portal. Just arrange obsidian blocks in a vertical rectangular shape and ignite the portal with flint and steel.

When you place a blaze rod in a crafting table, you will create two blaze powder. This powder is essential for crafting various potions and items in Minecraft’s vast world.

How to get Water Bottle

Making empty bottles is simple; you only need glass blocks. Collect sand blocks, smelt them in a furnace to make glass blocks, and arrange them in a V-shape on the crafting table, as shown in the image. This creates empty bottles.

Next, to get water bottles, find a water source like an ocean or puddle and use your empty bottle on it. Right-click the empty bottle on a water block to turn it into a water bottle, which you can use.

How to get Nether Wart

Minecraft Nether Wart

The main and best way for players to get their first nether warts is by exploring Nether Fortresses. You can usually find nether warts near the staircases inside these fortresses. Try to bring some extra Nether Wart back to the Overworld to farm them. You can grow Nether Wart by planting them on soul sand blocks.

How to get Glistering Melon Slice

To craft glistering melon slices, place a melon slice surrounded by eight golden nuggets in a crafting table or your personal crafting inventory. First, get a melon slice by harvesting a melon block. Then, you will have to craft golden nuggets by placing gold ingots in a crafting slot. Alternatively, you can get gold nuggets from loot chests, netherrack gold ore, and zombie piglins.

Place the melon slice in the center of the crafting grid and the gold nugget around it. This will create one glistering melon slice, the main ingredient for brewing Potion of Healing in Minecraft.

How to get Brewing Stand


With the main brewing ingredients ready, the next step is getting a brewing stand. You might find brewing stands in Minecraft villages if there is a church. But if your village doesn’t have one, don’t worry—here’s how to make it.

To craft a brewing stand, you will need a blaze rod and three cobblestone blocks. Once you have these items, arrange them on the crafting table like shown above to create your own brewing stand.

With all the brewing ingredients ready, the challenging part is over. Follow these easy steps to brew a Potion of Healing:

  3. Once the brewing is complete and you have awkward potions, replace any remaining Nether Wart with a glistering melon slice in the top slot.
