A jar of salamander blood

"Salamander blood, Harry! Not pomegranate juice!"
—Hermione Granger[src]

Salamander blood was the blood of the magical salamander.[1] It had healing and rejuvenating properties,[1] and could be used to brew strengthening potions,[1] including the Strengthening Solution.

In 1995, fifth-year students at Hogwarts used salamander blood in their Potions classes. Hermione Granger had to stop Harry Potter from mistakingly adding pomegranate juice to his Strengthening Solution instead.[2]
