The berry of the mistletoe is small, white, and waxy.[1] It is used as an ingredient in potions, including the Antidote to Common Poisons and the Forgetfulness Potion.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The use of mistletoe berries as an ingredient in the Antidote to Common Poisons is ironic: the non-berry parts of the mistletoe plant are extremely poisonous, causing intense stomach pain,[3] diarrhea,[3] low pulse,[3] visual disturbances,[4] and convulsions[4] if eaten. However, the berries are considered "relatively non-toxic" if only a small amount are ingested, but can cause stomach upset when eaten in larger quantities.[4]
