Effect

Completes a potion

"Wave your wand to complete the potion."
—A standard final step for many potions.[src]

This spell is used throughout the process of brewing a potion, usually to complete it. It manifests as a white light, similar in appearance to lightning, which strikes the surface of the potion several times.[1] Without this spell, no potion can be properly made, which is why Muggles cannot brew them.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Despite J. K. Rowling claiming that every potion has a "magical component" and requires a wand at some stage, Pottermore is, as of currently, the only canon source to depict this aspect of potion brewing.
