Potion ingredients are available for student use from the Student Store cupboard. Students also buy their own ingredients as part of their school supplies, and purchase additional materials and refills every year. Many witches and wizards buy their potion-making supplies at the Apothecary in Diagon Alley. Snape maintains his own private stores which include ingredients not available in the Student Store Cupboard, including boomslang skin and gillyweed.
