- "Euugghh! That's disgusting."
- — The foul taste of this potion[src]
Herbicide Potion (or simply Herbicide) was a poisonous potion that killed or damages plants. It had a disgusting taste and was not fit for human consumption, since it may have negatively affected the drinker's health. The recipe for this potion could be found in Magical Drafts and Potions.

- Add 2 measures of Horklump juice to your cauldron
- Heat to a medium temperature for 10 seconds
- Add 2 blobs of Flobberworm Mucus to your cauldron while it is still on the heat

Behind the scenes
- Brewing a Herbicide potion is free, as all of its ingredients regenerate.
- Probably due to its poor points per galleon-minute, according to the Pottermore Insider, Herbicide is the least commonly brewed potion.
- While the Antidote to Common Poisons has an even worse points per galleon-minute, it is much quicker to make. Additionally all of Herbicide ingredients come in bottles, which are known for being extremely unwieldy.
- Although Pottermore described this as an advanced potion, the brewing of it has been shown to be taught in first year Potions classes in the first video game and Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
- In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, some LEGO plants can be destroyed by being made to ingest black bottles of poison, which are possibly bottles of the Herbicide Potion.
