hp.png Wit Sharpening Potion Mind

A potion used to sharpen the wits of the drinker, and to aid in concentration. Often used as a study-aid, or else taken before an important exam.

Notes: This potion is very temperature sensitive. Pay especial attention to the fire whilst brewing. To avoid unpleasant taste, place a peppermint leaf on tongue before drinking. Do not add the leaf to the potion itself as it will alter the properties of the finished product.
