How to make a fire resistance potion in Minecraft

While traversing the world of Minecraft you will find lava in different places that can harm and eventually kill you if you don’t equip yourself with the fire-resistance potion. Other than that, this can also help you while fighting different mobs, especially in the nether world such as a blaze or ghast that will throw fireballs at you. So the materials required to make this potion and how you will get them will be discussed in this article.

This guide comprises two main parts; the first one is to make a brewing stand which you need to make any potion. The second part is for the materials that are required to make this fire-resistant potion.

First let’s make a brewing stand which is a required item to make any potion.

Materials Required to Make a Brewing Stand

The brewing stand is an instrument that will be used to make any potion in Minecraft by putting all the required items together. There are two main items that you can use to make this stand which are the blaze rod and the cobblestones.

How to get a Blaze Rod

For blaze rod, you need to kill a mob with the name of a blaze that is only available in the nether. Now, if you don’t know how you can access the nether world then you need to make a nether portal and those details are mentioned in this article. After entering the nether, you need to find the blaze mob that can be seen below.

If you are unable to find one, then you need to roam around a little and explore different parts of the nether or visit the nether fortresses. Killing it won’t be that easy so you need to equip yourself with strong armor and weapons and ideally, it should be made with a diamond if not netherite. You also need to have some strong reflexes as this mob would throw fireballs at you that could put you in danger if you got hit by them.

Also, you need to gather as many blaze rods as you can because you will also need blaze powder that you only make by using this, which acts as an energy source in making this potion. Killing them will give you 1 blaze rod that should be sufficient for making a brewing stand.

How to get Cobblestones

You can find cobblestones in almost every other biome near rivers, caves, and mountains. You can’t mine them barehanded, so you need to equip yourself at least with a wooden pickaxe although there are better pickaxes also available in the game. If you’re not familiar with the cobblestones, then look at the gray part in the below image to get a better idea.
