"Pepper-Up Potion can be used to cure colds and to warm the recipient up. Drinking it can cause steam to come out of the drinker's ears. The potion was invented by Glover Hipworth."
—Description[src]
The Pepperup Potion (or Pepper-Up Potion) is a potion which cures the common cold. It has the side-effect of causing steam to come out of the drinker's ears for several hours after it is imbibed.

HistoryEdit

Pepperup Potion was invented by Glover Hipworth in the mid-to-late 18th century or early 19th century.[1] It was based on an earlier remedy created by Linfred of Stinchcombe in the 12th century.[2]

During the winter of the 1992–1993 school year, a spate of colds ran through the student body of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Madam Pomfrey used Pepperup Potion to relieve their symptoms. Ginny Weasley was bullied into taking some by Percy Weasley during this time, although her illness was more to do with her possession by Tom Riddle's Diary than a cold. It was also used after the second task of the Triwizard Tournament on the hostages and champions.

Behind the Scenes Edit

Given that every potion's brewing can only be completed by casting a spell, and that it may vary for each potion, the spell to finish this potion's brewing may be the Counter-curse for Curse of the Bogies.
