"And this leaves you with the Girding Potion which may be consumed to increase one's endurance for a considerable number of weeks. I do warn those of you who wish to experiment with this potion that the maximum dosage is no more than two of these vials."
Severus Snape.[src]

The Girding Potion is a Potion that gives the consumer extra endurance. It presumably has a rather foul odour, as Hermione Granger noted when making it in 1996.

Concoction

The following recipe can be used to successfully make the Girding Potion[1]:

  1. Add one set of fairy wings.
  2. Heat until the potion turns turquoise.
  3. Add one measure of doxy eggs.
  4. Heat until the potion turns pink.
  5. Add the toasted dragonfly thoraxes until the potion turns red.
  6. Heat until the potion turns blue.
  7. Add toasted dragonfly thoraxes until the potion turns silver.
  8. Heat the potion until it turns red.
  9. Add three measures of doxy eggs.
  10. Add some dragonfly thoraxes.
  11. Heat the potion until it turns blue.
  12. Add three flying seahorses.
  13. Heat until the potion turns green.

Etymology

From the English "to gird" which can mean one of three things: to encircle or bind with a belt or band; to surround, enclose or hem in; to prepare oneself for action[2]. The latter is probably the intended meaning, a reference to its effects.
