Ingredient in the Polyjuice Potion
Fluxweed is a member of the mustard family known for its healing properties. When picked at the full moon, it can be used in the making of the Polyjuice Potion. Sixteen scruples are needed to make the potion.
The word Flux means constant change or flow so it makes sense that it would be an ingredient in Polyjuice Potion.
