"The Draught is used to calm someone down when they suffer a shock or an emotional outburst."
—Description[src]

A Calming Draught was a potion used to calm a person down after they had suffered a shock, trauma, or emotional outburst.

History

In the 1987–1988 school year, this potion was taught to fourth years in Potions class.[1]

In 1996, Madam Pomfrey administered a Calming Draught to Hannah Abbott in her fifth year after she burst out crying in a Herbology lesson, claiming to be too stupid to take her exams.[2]

When Muggle monster hunter Laura Thorn's Obliviated memories of witnessing a Troll resurfaced after smelling Percival Shacklehorn's dirty socks, Ministry witch Mathilda Grimblehawk had St Mungo's Healer Omar Abasi bring her a Calming Draught, passing it off for a brew.[3] Despite being confined to the Leaky Cauldron during the investigation, Thorn later escaped to look for the Troll while Abasi was busy brewing another Calming Draught.[4]
