Hair-Changing Potion


Whatever it touches will swell

Brewing Time

Under an hour



The Swelling Solution was first taught by Headmaster and Potions Master Reynard Bontecou sometime during the 2067-2068 school year in Beginning Potions Class.


The swelling solution causes objects or parts of objects to swell and enlarge. However, it does not work on non-living things. This potion is for external use only and should not be ingested. The swelling solution is not like the engorgement charm. It is an irritant, not just a swelling in size. Where ever this potion contacts the skin it will cause swelling.


  • Water (500mL)
  • Ground Houndstongue (0.5g)
  • Ginger Roots (thinly sliced; 5g)
  • 3 Whole Lionfish quills
  • 1 Rattlesnake Fang (crushed)
  • 1 drop Dragon Saliva


  • Bring water to a slow boil in a pewter cauldron.
  • Add houndstongue and stir 22 times in a steady clockwise motion.
  • Add lionfish quills but, do not stir.
  • Allow solution to slowly boil and after about 5 minutes, the solution should be a dull yellow.
  • Add dragon saliva. It will remain on the surface for a few minutes. Wait for it to sink before adding the next ingredient.
  • Crush the rattlesnake fang and mix with ground ginger before adding them to the potion.
  • Stir clockwise for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the fire and continue to stir for an additional 10 minutes.
