Invisibility Potion Recipes in Minecraft

There are three steps to making an invisibility potion in Minecraft:

  1. Place a water bottle and Nether Wart in a brewing stand to make an awkward potion.
  2. Combine an awkward potion and a golden carrot to make a night vision potion.
  3. Combine the night vision potion and fermented spider eye to make an invisibility potion.

All three steps require a brewing stand, as this is where you make all your Minecraft potions. From here, you’ll make an awkward potion, turn it into a night vision potion, and then convert that to invisibility.

From here, you can make three additional invisibility potion types using the following recipes:

  • Extended Potion: Potion of Invisibility + Redstone
  • Splash Potion: Potion of Invisibility + Gunpowder
  • Lingering Potion: Splash Potion of Invisibility + Dragon’s Breath

Each potion has its advantages. While extended invisibility potions increase the duration from three to eight minutes, splash potions allow you to throw it to the ground, giving you an area-of-effect potion. Lastly, lingering potions leave the status effect on the ground, so you can walk in and pick up its buff.

To make invisibility arrows in Minecraft, you’ll need eight arrows and a lingering potion of invisibility in a crafting bench. Place the potion in the center square and surround it with your arrows to get eight invisibility arrows in return. Doing this allows you to take things a step further by using your arrows to use the effect long-range rather than within throwing distance.
