Cleaning herbs & Unfinished potions

Cleaning herbs is a simple task you have to perform before you can add a herb to a vial to create an unfinished potion.

For information about the cost/profit on cleaning herbs or creating unfinished potions, see Calculator:Herblore/Herbs

Potions

Once you add a herb to a vial of water, you get an unfinished potion, then you must add a secondary ingredient to finish the potion completely. A newly finished vial of potion contains 3 doses of the potion. Some higher-level potions require a vial of coconut milk to be used instead of water.

Wearing an amulet of chemistry gives a 5% chance of creating a 4 dose potion instead. This can be useful for conserving resources on Ironman accounts or for potions with rare or expensive ingredients.

For information about the cost per experience, see Calculator:Herblore/Potions
