"A potion of prodigious power, to repulse the vile Doxy. Students of my work may wonder why I chose to devote my genius to deterring these fairy-like nuisances. Suffice it to say that even hermits suffer from household pests. Hence I created this, a full-bodied venomous mixture, yet well-rounded."
Zygmunt Budge, Book of Potions[src]

Doxycide is a black-coloured foul smelling solution used to spray Doxies. It paralyses them for a period of time, allowing the user to safely remove the Doxies without fear of being bitten. The recipe can be found in Book of Potions.[1]

  3. Stir the potion then heat.
  4. Add chopped dragon liver and stir vigorously.
  5. Add a dash of hemlock essence and stir again.
  6. Add a glug of cowbane essence and a dash of tormentil tincture.
  7. Stir slowly then heat the cauldron.
  8. Wave your wand over the cauldron to finish the potion.



A bottle of Doxycide

Zygmunt Budge developed a recipe for Doxycide to deal with the swarms of Doxys that inhabited Hermetray during autumn. His first attempt, rather than repelling the Doxys, made them red-hot and fiery, thus setting fire to both Budge's house and the island itself. Budge was forced to spend that night in the sea, breathing through a hollow stick. Budge perfected his Doxycide the following autumn, killing the entire swarm and allowing him to sweep their corpses into the sea.[1]

Molly Weasley and the adolescents at 12 Grimmauld Place used it to remove Doxies from the draperies at the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix.[2]

Fred and George Weasley used Doxycide to paralyse Doxies before pocketing them, intending to use their venom in the development of the Skiving Snackboxes.[2]
