The Scintillation Solution is a potion of unknown effect.

Z. Nettles, a witch who took the Kwikspell course, wrote a testimonial for the company which stated that taking their course had improved her poor potion-making skills to such an extent that all her friends now desperately wanted to know how she made her Scintillation Solution.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The meaning of the word scintillating ("brilliant, clever, witty"), combined with the context in which the potion is mentioned, suggest that it may be a brain tonic similar to Baruffio's Brain Elixir or Wit-Sharpening Potion.
