Skyrim Alchemy Recipes: The Definitive Guide [2021]

Potions For All.

A basic knowledge of Skyrim Alchemy Recipes is essential to surviving in a world full of hostile dragons and otherworldly beings. Players who take the time to learn this skill are often equipped to tackle any scenario the game throws at them, thanks to their massive selection of consumables for every situation.

I understand that it’s not really glamorous to invest points in a skill like Alchemy, especially when others allow you to spew fire from your hands more effectively. But what do you do when you’re backed into a corner with no recovery items and no fortifying potions? What happens when your Magicka runs out, and you can’t cast spells like Bound Bow anymore?

These situations are where players with a grasp of the Skyrim Alchemy Recipes will truly shine. And with this guide, we’ll show you all of the items you can craft with this skill.

What are Alchemy Ingredients in Skyrim

Skyrim Alchemy Recipes
Alchemy Lab.

Alchemy ingredients can be found all over the map of Skyrim. Some of these are easy to find, while others are much rarer. If players don’t want to waste their time searching for these ingredients, they can also purchase them from Alchemists found in most major settlements in the game. If you’re short on money, you can always create a bunch of gold with the Transmute Spell.

Each ingredient has four different effects, some of which are also shared by other items. You can discover these either by brewing potions at an Alchemy Lab using ingredients with the same effects, or by eating the item directly from your inventory to discover its first effect. Additional properties can be discovered by investing points in the Experimenter perk in the Alchemy skill tree.

Skyrim Alchemy Recipes Guide

We will now move onto the actual Skyrim Alchemy Recipes. These are divided into two categories; Potions and Poisons.

To craft any of these, all you have to do is combine at least two of the ingredients listed at an Alchemy Lab. It doesn’t matter what combination you choose.
