The Invigoration Draught was a potion which presumably boosted the drinker's energy. Fifth year students of Potions class were required to brew an Invigoration Draught, which was supposedly rather easy to do when left alone.
During this assignment, Harry Potter did better than usual in Potions class and felt secure that his correctly-brewed potion would manage to finally earn him an 'E'. Professor Severus Snape, however, had been angered the previous day by Potter and maliciously smashed Harry's phial of potion, thereby making it impossible to mark the potion. When Harry returned to his cauldron to fill a new flask, he discovered that Hermione Granger had vanished his potion, having believed him to be finished with it.
Members of the Ministry of Magic's Beast Division, such as Mathilda Grimblehawk's partner, would brew this potion using Alihotsy leaves, dried billywig stings, Peppermint, Stewed Mandrake, and Infusion of Wormwood. They would later consume this potion to assist them in their investigations.
Behind the scenes
- Invigoration Draught is one of the boosts on the Broomstick Racing minigame at Pottermore for Playstation Home. Its icon uses the same picture as the Crystal Phials that one can buy at Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment.
- It is referred to as "Invigoration Potion" in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Its ingredients are also entirely different to the ones given in Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World, so it unclear as to what its canonical recipe is. Furthermore, it takes three hours to brew in the game, which seems to contradict Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; the fifth year students are capable of brewing the potion in a single one hour lesson.
