You should gather as many blaze rods as you can as this item is also required to make a blaze powder that we will discuss later. Next, we are going to discuss how you can get these items.

How to Make a Blaze Rod

Blaze rode can only be available from the nether world, and you can get it by killing a mob with the name blaze. Accessing a nether world is somewhat tricky and complicated as you can’t access it normally just like other biomes in the game. So, you can access this world by making a nether portal first and those details are mentioned in this article.

Now, the next step is to find the blaze mob and you need to roam around and explore different parts of the nether to find it. Make sure to always equip yourself with some of the best weapons as you will face many different mobs while doing this. Killing this mob will likely drop the blaze rod that is the first item required to make a brewing stand. Kill as many blaze mobs as you can because you need a blaze rod to make blaze powder as well that we are going to discuss later.

Next, we need cobblestones, which is the second essential item required to make the potion.

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.
