Effect: Causes the person drinking it to grow older. The more Ageing Potion one drinks, the more one ages.
Fred Weasley, George Weasley, and Lee Jordan took a few drops of Ageing Potion in an attempt to fool the Age Line around the Goblet of Fire into thinking that they were a few months older. The Line wasn't fooled. They were thrown back out of the circle, then sprouted full beards (GF12).
- NOTE: In the US editions, this name of this potion is spelled 'Aging'.
ingredients: unknown (but see love potion)
"amor" L. love + "tempto" L. to try to influence or tamper with
Recognizable by its distinctive mother-of-pearl sheen and by the fact that its steam rises in characteristic spirals. The potion smells differently to different people according to what attracts them (HBP9)
ingredients: vary, but often include mandrakes
There are antidotes for many poisons and for potions effects.
Used in Wit-Sharpening Potion.
Ashwinder eggs, frozen
Quite valuable, as they can serve as ingredients in love potions or may be eaten whole as a cure for ague. These uses are quite appropriate as Ashwinder eggs are so flammable that they will ignite a dwelling within minutes if they are not frozen as soon as possible (FB).
Powdered root of asphodel is used in the Draught of Living Death (PS8).
