How to make an invisibility potion in Minecraft

The invisibility potion can help players avoid a lot of encounters that they despise. Here is a guide on how to make an invisibility potion in Minecraft with a brew station and the Night Vision Potion.


While enchantments are primarily useful for upgrading tools and weapons, potions provide unique abilities and status effects to Minecraft players. Both of these mechanics are an important part of the game if you want to defeat the Ender Dragon one day.

The invisibility potion is quite popular in the community. Not only does it sound great, but it also allows you to get past mobs without a problem. That said, there is a fixed distance at which mobs attack the player even if they are invisible.

Here is a guide on how to make an invisibility potion in Minecraft.

How to create an invisibility potion in Minecraft

You will need the following items to get an invisibility potion in Minecraft:

  • Brewing stand
  • fermented spider eye
  • night vision potion

Before moving on to the invisibility potion brewing recipe, let’s learn how to get all the necessary ingredients:

How to make a brewing stand in minecraft

You can make a brewing stand in Minecraft with three pieces of cobblestone and a Blaze Rod. While cobblestone is one of the most common resources in the Overworld, Blaze Rods are exclusively dropped by Blaze creatures in Nether Fortresses.

To find Nether Fortresses, you will first have to create a Nether Portal and enter the Nether. After you get a Blaze Rod, simply place it in the middle slot of the 3×3 crafting grid and fill the bottom row with three stone pieces.

While collecting Blaze Rods, make sure you collect a decent amount because the rods will also help you craft Blaze Powder. Just like smelting requires fuel like coal, brewing requires Blaze Powder. Before adding any other ingredients, place Blaze Powder in the top left section of the brew stand to activate it.

By placing a Blaze Rod on any block in a crafting menu, you can get two pieces of Blaze Powder.

How to make fermented spider eye in minecraft

You will need a Spider Eye, a Brown Mushroom, and Sugar to make a Fermented Spider Eye in Minecraft.

Spiders and Cave Spiders have a 33% chance to drop Spider Eyes when killed. Spiders breed at night and in caves, mushroom biomes, and deep dark biomes. There are also spider spawners in dungeons and secret rooms of forest mansions.

Brown mushrooms are commonly found in dark areas with light levels below seven. If you are lucky enough, you may discover a mushroom biome that is full of red and brown mushrooms.

You can also grow mushrooms, and here is a detailed guide on how to grow mushrooms in Minecraft.

Last but not least, you can get sugar in Minecraft by processing sugar cane. Sugarcane usually grows near water and you can simply add it to any block in the crafting grid to get sugar. It also helps in the manufacture of paper, which is an important element.

Now, add the piece of sugar to the center point of the 3×3 artboard. Put the spider eye to the left of the piece of sugar and the brown mushroom below it. With this recipe you will get the fermented spider eye.

How to make Night Vision Potion in Minecraft

You will need a nether wart, a golden carrot, and a bottle of water to make a night vision potion in Minecraft. The Nether Wart and the Water Bottle are essential for making an Awkward Potion, and then add a Golden Carrot to the brewing rack for the desired potion.

As its name suggests, Nether Wart is an item obtained from the Nether. You can look for him in the Nether Fortresses and Bastion Remnants. These are the only places where the Nether Wart appears, and there is an even smaller chance that it will be part of the Nether Fortress chests.

Nether Wart helps make the Awkward Potion, which is the main ingredient in almost every other potion in the game.

If you don’t have a glass bottle, make glass by melting sand blocks. Next, place two glass blocks at the edges of the second row of a 3×3 crafting grid and a glass piece in the middle of the bottom row.

To fill a glass bottle with water, simply go to a water source and fill it up.

First things first, place Blaze Powder in the top left section to activate your brew support. Then add a Water Bottle to any of the three slots at the bottom and a Bottom Wart at the top to make an Awkward Potion.

Night Vision Potion Crafting Recipe

You can make a night vision potion with an awkward potion and a golden carrot.

To craft a Golden Carrot, you will need to find gold ore that spawns below Y=31. Turn gold ore into gold bars with the help of the smelter, and then turn one gold bar into nine gold nuggets by adding the bar to any slot on the crafting grid.

Keep in mind that you will need an iron pickaxe or better to mine gold ore, and here is a detailed guide on how to make a pickaxe in minecraft.

Finding carrots is much easier, as they commonly grow in the Overworld and on village farms.

Place eight gold nuggets in a 3×3 crafting grid, and right in the middle, place a carrot. With this recipe you will get a Golden Carrot in Minecraft.
