Antidote To Veritaserum
hp.png Antidote to Veritaserum Healing • Scarce

This potion counteracts the truth serum effects of Veritaserum. Just as with Veritaserum, the process of brewing is lengthy and complex, and should only be undertaken by an experienced potion maker.

Part I
• Pour Honeywater into a cool silver cauldron and place over a low flame to bring to a simmer
• Coarsely chop Valerian Sprigs with a silver knife and stir them into the cauldron
• Slowly drop the Mistletoe Berries into the cauldron and stir seven times clockwise and seven times anti-clockwise
• Leave mixture to simmer for about 45 minutes before removing from heat
• The wax from the Mistletoe Berries should rise to the surface and harden, forming a protective skin over the potion
• Leave in a cool, dark location to steep for one month

Part II
• At the one month mark, carefully break the wax skin. The solid ingredients from the initial brewing will have risen to the surface and stuck to the wax, leaving a clean potion base to work with.
• Place cauldron over a medium flame and bring to a boil
• Drop Runespoor Eggs into the mixture, one by one and allow them to roll with the boil
• Tap pulverized Unicorn horn into the mixture and stir thoroughly
• Remove cauldron from heat and allow to cool before straining it cleanly into a bottle
• Allow potion to mature for one month before use
