In Minecraft, the Strength Potion can really come in handy when you are cornered by mobs or any other enemies. It is one of the positive effect potions that not only buff your melee attack damage but also give you extra hearts. However, the strength buff effect only lasts for a few minutes. But it’s surely effective if you play your cards right. Moreover, note that this potion only affects your melee weapons and will have no effect on range weapons like bow & arrow. Keeping that in mind, let’s take a look at the recipe to brew the Strength Potion in Minecraft.

In Minecraft to make Strength Potion the ingredients you need are 1x Awkward Potion and 1x Blaze Powder. To craft the Awkward Potion you’ll need 1x Nether Wart, 1x Blaze Powder, & 1x Water Bottle.

  1. First, craft a Brewing Stand by placing 3x Cobblestones in the second row of your 3×3 Crafting table.
  2. Next, place 1x Blaze Rod in the middle of the first row and that’ll give you the Brewing Stand.
  3. After that, interact with the stand and place 1x Water Bottle in one of the 3 boxes with the bottle symbol.
  4. Then, take 1x Blaze Powder and place it in the box located on the upper left side of your screen. If you don’t have this powder, then you can always craft some by using the 1x Blaze Rod.
  5. Once done, grab the 1x Nether Wart and place it in the box located above the bottle boxes. This ingredient can be found in Nether Fortress. (Important item required to make Strength Potion in Minecraft)

To do so place 1x Redstone in the Box located above the bottle boxes. If you want to increase the strength, then simply use Glowstone Dust on the potion and you’ll be good to go.
