How to make a Night Vision Potion in Minecraft

Minecraft games come with a variety of different mobs, some of them appear during the daytime whereas others at the night time. You are more vulnerable to them especially at night time as you won’t be able to see them clearly or what is ahead of you. So you need something that can brighten your way and for that you can use a night vision potion that will be discussed in this article.

Required Materials to Make a Night Vision

You need 1 blaze powder, 1 nether wart, 1 golden carrot and 1 water bottle to make a night vision.

How to Make a Blaze Powder

You can make blaze powder by killing a blaze mob that you can only find in the nether world. After that you need to place 1 blaze rod in any of the slots on the crafting table to make it.

How to Get Nether Warts

Nether warts can be found in the nether world as well especially in the nether fortress and bastion remnants. You can mine these wart blocks using any tool that you have or even by hand as well.

How to Make a Golden Carrot

Golden carrots can be made by placing 8 gold nuggets and 1 normal carrot on the crafting table.

1 golden ingot will give you 9 gold nuggets that you can make by finding a golden ore, mine it and then place it inside a furnace along with any fuel.

How to Make a Water Bottle

You can make a water bottle by placing 3 blocks of glass on the crafting table in the exact same order as shown below.

Whereas for one block of glass, you need to collect some sand by using a shovel that is abundantly available in every other biome and then place them with any fuel inside a furnace.

How to Make a Night Vision Potion

If you have collected all the items that’s been discussed in this article then the last thing that is required is the brewing stand that you can make by placing a blaze rod and 3 cobblestones on the crafting table.

After that you need to place it on the ground, click on it, and a few options will appear for you as shown below.

Place the blazing powder in the top left corner, the nether wart in the top middle, and 1-3 water bottles in the bottom right corner. This process will give you the awkward potion which is the first stage of this process.

In the second stage you need to place the golden carrot in the top middle where you placed the nether wart earlier that will convert the awkward potion to night vision potion.

This potion will give you the power of night vision for 3 minutes, but you can enhance it further upto 8 minutes by placing the redstone dust on the top center of the brewing stand.

To give you a sense of scale, this is the view you’ll receive at night, as depicted in the image below.

When you drink the night potion then your view will be much more clearer than before as shown in the image below.


It is very difficult in Minecraft to continue your journey during the nighttime as you won’t be able to see clearly. In such scenarios you can use a night vision potion that can be used to clear your vision and continue your journey easily. This will be highly effective while fighting with different mobs during the nighttime or when digging as you never know what comes ahead of you.
